This is where we have stored the crib, Christmas decorations and unwanted furniture. Honestly, I have opened the door thrown a bag of clothes in and closed it quickly. I mean, it wasn't a place we hung out.
Since we are moving, we needed to get in there and clean, organize and move everything out. We managed very successfully to get all of the
My eight year old decided that he could help with his brut strength to shimmy it. He pulled, pushed and stepped. One minute he was standing in the attic, the next minute he was falling through the sheet rock!
The Hubs hollered, I screamed and we ran down the stairs excepting to find the worst. My husband was yelling call 911! I was in shock and the Little's were running in circles.
There STANDING in the kitchen was Tyler!
He had fallen 13 feet and was now STANDING in front of us. He was shaking like a leaf in a hurricane, crying and slightly hyperventilating, But he was not in a million pieces, nor bleeding from head to toe. He was visibly OK!!!
My husband rushed him to the emergency room. His wrist looked bruised and had a knot forming, and, did I mention he had just FALLEN 13 FEET, so he needed to be checked out. After a few x-rays, everything checked out. Did you hear that? He was totally fine!! Nothing broken!!!
He fell 13 feet… straight through the sheetrock… falling. My son landed on a flimsy plastic trash can. Thank you Jesus! That plastic trash can saved my son from serious injuries. He was protected. It is absolutely amazing! God protects.
Throughout the day we prayed a prayer of thanksgiving, and pure joy. We thanked God for His provision, for his angels, for his love.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
