Oh Death Where Is Your Sting

Well today has been a bluesey day for me. A friend send me an email about Steven Curtis Chapman's little adopted daughter's death. He is a great singer and has over 50 Dove awards. She was only 5 years old and her brother didn't she her in their driveway and hit her. I can't imagine the pain of this family.

The ironic thing is tonight Gospel Music Channel had his life long's journey on Faith and Fame Marathon. When you watch him share about his struggles in life and doing God's will there is such humility in him. They dedicated this show to his little Maria Sue Chapman who went home to be with the Lord this week.

Now I don't pretend to under any of this and I never will. I'm not God and don't understand His plans for each one of us. Tonight as it moves into Sunday I ponder this loss and so many more that don't make sense to me.

DH came home Wedensday evening and told me about this. I played chapman's song "Free" at my father's funeral last Aug. Just seemed so perfect to be set free from the Alzheimer's.

Good Morning, Dove. How sad . . . I feel for the family's loss. So sorry . . .

Making sense of tragedy is difficult to understand. At times of great loss, sometimes it's enough to just "feel" . . . and express love . . .

You are loved.

you are right fannie making sense of tragedy is difficult to understand. who can minister to our very beings at a time like this? you just have to work through the feelings.
