Sad Day

Nick and I saw the headlines about the Chapman's daughter late last night. Ugh. What a horrible, horrible thing. That kind of thing is the worst fear of every parent. It sure makes everything else seem trivial. As awful as it is, I'm far enough removed from it to already see that God can do some incredible things through it. But wow. It reminds me how powerless we really are as parents. I must daily release mine to God's grace and mercy in order to have peace.

Too many words seem inappropriate. I'm off to (hopefully gratefully) take care of my sick Hannah.


  1. what a heartbreaking story. I feel for the son who accidentaly hit her. it will be a long road to recover from that.

  2. That's the saddest thing ever. I can't imagine. We are praying for them. Just another thing I don't understand...

  3. If you go to his website, there is a link to a memorial blog for her. I read through a few, but it's too heartbreaking. And you're right, too many words seem inappropriate.
