After celebrating David Cook’s win last night, I woke up this morning to the news of Steven Curtis Chapman’s five-year old daughter, Maria (sitting on his lap in the picture above), being killed yesterday. Talk about a reality check.
Although my taste in music has changed over the years, there is no denying this guy is the real thing. You can hear it in his words and see it in his life… especially when it comes to his family. They have been on my mind and in my prayers throughout the day. I’m especially lifting up their teenage son who accidentally ran over her in the driveway. Can you imagine the raw emotions he is dealing with tonight?
Please join me in lifting up this family continually in the coming days and weeks ahead. This link has more information on the incident, as well as an online sympathy link.
