Tragic accident in Steven Curtis Chapman's family

This is obviously not the "next post" that I was going to publish, but this breaking news story has had me in tears this morning, and has had me thinking about the preciousness and fragility of my own children.

Steven Curtis Chapman's daughter killed by car in driveway


  1. Joel--I didn't read about this until Thursday night, and I'm just sick. We've have 3 adopted children, all around the same age as SCC's daughter. I can't imagine what the family must be going through.

    We need to pray for all of them. Especially the son, who was driving the car that actually hit the little girl. He must be in torment right now...

  2. Yes I was thinking the son would be especially taking this hard. Not that the rest of the family isn't, of course.

    In my mind I've put my own children in the same place as the little girl, and I shudder to think.

    Indeed I'm praying for proper grieving for the family, as well as comfort and healing in the long run.
