Maria Chapman

What sad news to hear about the accidental death of Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest daughter, Maria Sue. She was accidentally hit by her brother as he was backing the family SUV out of the driveway. They lifeflighted her to Vanderbilt University but the Lord, in His infinite wisdom took her home to be with him. I can't imagine losing one of my children that way. Please be praying for the entire family as they deal with having to lay to rest their sweet child. Especially be praying for Maria's brother who, though it wasn't his fault, will carry for the rest of his life the burden of what happened. Knowing that Maria is in the hands of our loving Heavenly Father with the prospect that they will see her again must have some comfort but still my heart breaks for them.

We don't know what will happen on a daily basis. The Lord may call any of us home at any moment, so make the most of the time that you have with family and friends. Don't forget to give your kids a hug today, and everyday. Don't let a tragedy like this remind you about it, make it a part of your day. Don't forget to give the hubby a kiss before he leaves for work. Take some time to slow down and spend time with those who are special to you.
