73 year old man drowns in 17 inches of water!

This has NOT been a good week.  On Mother's Day my sweet daughter and family came to cook our Mothers day celebration.  I was in a funk because I miss my Mommy so much this year!  Us girls were setting on the patio enjoying all of our lovely fish swimming in the ponds.   We were relaxing while my son in love was cooking steaks, shrimp, mushrooms and turkey burgers.  My hubby was taking a minute to "relax" and clear the motor to our fish ponds.  We HAD 23 large goldfish that were showing off their stuff.  Us girls were watching him pull the motor to clean it.  He leaned in to the pond to "clean" the motors.  He kept sliding into the pond.  His feet were fixed on the ground, toes in the soil.  But he kept going deeper.  I yelled,  "what are you doing!!!!"  No response....Honey, what in the world are you doing?  NO response... his head was underwater while feet planted on the bank....TROUBLE, BIG TROUBLE!!!  I began to jump and run for the pond.... full speed...my daugher, went for the middle of his body.... I held his head above water and pushed with all my might to set him on shore.  Melissa went under water and lifted his mid section to the bank (four feet high)  I pushed and shoved to get him out of the water.  He was out cold...no help from the drowning one.  After we got him on shore he made NO sense.  Panic set in...strouk,  passing out, no communication!!!!  "Oh, Lord, please please please help my hubby!!!!"  He finally "came too" and kept saying he had to MOVE!  I kept saying set still until you feel better....he finally said.  "you have put me on a sharp rock and my butt is on a sharp rock...I must move NOW!"  All I could think was, I can't live without my rock, the man who keeps me going, my friend, my pal.......
Later, embarassed and uncomfortable, He said
"I can just see the head lines....
73 year old man drowns in 17 inches of water!"

The doctor has been in contact...blood work done...a fluke maybe...I am shook!!!  I love that old man and am NOT ready to be through with our life together!  I can't wrap my brain around being without this gentle man/   PLease please keep us in your prayers.  I am not the same...my nerves are shot..I am scared...I need God's peace once again.  I need your prayers.  I feel so insecure..
love, sharon

Sharon, it sounds like you have a strong faith. The most comforting thought I can give you is this... there are no accidents! Your wonderful man gave everyone a scare, but perhaps everyone needed to be reminded how precious time really is and your husband was the messenger! I believe you are all in God's hands, and don't have anything to worry about...although it certainly was a scare. That cold feeling of instant terror grips you...I know all about that. So, just hang in there.

If God wanted him home, you wouldn't be posting about what "could" have happened! Take comfort in that, and know that you will probably have him for a good many years yet! He has to stay underfoot to remind you how much he means to you, right? lol. Nonetheless, I will pray for you both. God bless...

So scary! I almost couldn't read this post, not knowing the outcome... So glad it wasn't his time yet!!! I love the song you have playing, "It is well with my soul" May you continue to put your faith and hope in God, and have the peace that keeps your soul in that place of rest... have a blessed weekend with that dear hubby of yours!!!! ~ Violet

Dear Sweet Sharon,

I just found out about your post and I am praying for you and your hubby. Oh my that must have been the scariest thing for all of you to go through but he is alright and he is with you. The Lord reminds us daily of how fragile we are and to never take anything or anyone for granted. I pray God will enfold you in his loving comforting arms and bring you peace for there is always peace and love when we are one with the Lord even though things seem to be going crazy he is always with us whereever we are. If you need ANYTHING I am here for you. Don't hesitate to ask!!!

Love you Sharon,

Susan
