I couldn't sleep last night. I was overcome with guilt. One of Satan's most powerful tools. Guilt that I was warm in bed why Will was literally freezing. Guilt that I didn't do more to help him. Guilt that we even bought the stupid car. After fighting the horrible thoughts and images running through my head, I turned to the scriptures.
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
Will is going to pull out of this. He is strong enough to make it through this. And so am I. I know this because I have a loving heavenly father who is always there to comfort me in time of need.
I am filled with peace.
I am grateful for the gospel.
I am grateful for the priesthood.
I am grateful for the power of prayer.
I am grateful for so many willing to do anything to help, and for all of your prayers.
I know this trial, like all others, is all part of Gods plan.

Continue to pray for Will, our prayers will be answered.
Will had a good night, they were able to keep his body temperature low. Soon he will be home eating the raspberries I picked for him yesterday.
