Pray for the Chapman Family, please.

Please lift up the family of Steven Curtis Chapman (a contemporary Christian artist, for those of you not familiar with him), as his youngest daughter, Maria Sue, age 5, was accidentally killed yesterday. Steven's son did not see his little sister in driveway and she was struck by his Toyota Land Cruiser. His wesbite has more information, as well as a link to a precious video of Maria:

I cannot even begin to fathom what this family is going through, especially Maria Sue's big brother. I'm sure the family covets our prayers during this most difficult time.

Steven currently has an enormous hit with his song, "Cinderella," which is about watching his daughters grow. How bittersweet. Back in April I posted a video of my husband with our two little girls, featuring this truly special song. You can view it here.

I saw the article on Yahoo! this morning. It's SO sad!! I can't imagine.

On a lighter note, I LOVE your new layout.

I heard this on our local Christian radio station on my way to work this morning and have been praying for them. I can't even imagine the pain they are all going through right now. Thanks for the reminder to keep praying!

I can't even begin to imagine what that family is going through. Especially their son who didn't see his sister.

I just went to the website and watched the video.. what a special, little girl.

I heard about it earlier today. Devastating is the only word I can think of! And once again, God is telling me how blessed I am to have my daughter graduating high school.
