Tragic Loss...

Derek and I are grieving today for the loss suffered by the Steven Curtis Chapman family. Their youngest daughter, Maria (5), was killed in a tragic accident in the driveway of their family home in Tennessee.
I can only imagine the sorrow that they are feeling. Praying that God will be near and comfort in ways that only He can. SC(2)'s music has been the source of comfort and encouragement MANY times in our lives over the years.

I just heard about it this morning. I can't even imagine the pain they must be going through.

How terrible! Can you imagine their grief? This is one of those times where I have to take David's advice. He often says to me, "baby, pray for them but don't dwell on it...God hasn't given you the grace that he's giving them". It would only be God's grace that could get you through a time like this!

I heard last night and grieved too. I actually have been holding a little tighter to my little guys today. The grief they must feel!

I heard this morning. I can not imagine the terrible sadness they are feeling. Everyday is truly a gift.

I have grieved all day for the loss of this family... especially for the brother. My heart also breaks for the other 2 adopted children - so young, too young to understand, I'm sure.
SC(2) has always been a favorite and has lifted my spirit so many times.
