Everything is explainable if you actually bother researching.
Religion is just the lazy way out.
…son has been ill,
Kids get ill. Kids go to school & sick kids happen. Bugs spread, and resistance is lowered in cold weather.
he was snowed in,
Ah, there’s that cold weather. Nothing meteorology can’t explain. It happens.
his car broke down,
My current job is quite close to home, so I either walk or drive. If I drive it’s not far enough to recuperate the battery used for starting the engine, and if I walk & leave the car, the battery slowly loses charge.

Probability, science, mathematical chance. It’s not magic.
When someone wins the lottery, it’s 1 in 14,000,000 probability. It’s not an impossibility.
When a coin is flipped & lands on ‘heads’, does it mean next time will be tails? Of course not… But to some people, if it does it 10 times in a row it becomes fantastical! A miracle! 100 times… 1000 times… All probable, albeit less likely, there’s no reason it couldn’t happen.
Just because its hard to understand, doesn’t mean God is the answer.
