Please pray

For those of you who listen to Christian music, you're probably familiar with Steven Curtis Chapman's music. His newest song, "Cinderella" brings me to tears every time I hear it. It was written about a father's love for a daughter.

This morning I found out that yesterday, Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest daughter, Maria Sue, was killed in a tragic accident in the driveway of the familys' home. My heart is just breaking for the Chapman family right now. Please join me in praying for their family, especially Chapman's teenage son, who accidentally hit Maria with a car. You can read the story as reported on Steven Curtis Chapman's website by clicking here.

You can also visit a page where you can leave your condolences for the family by clicking here.

The following is a silly video SCC and Maria made just two short months ago.

This is also a reminder of how dangerous it is for a child to be in or near the driveway if someone is planning on going somewhere in the car. Please be cautious!

This is what it looked like before:

Here's a "before" picture of the desk chair that I bought at Goodwill for $2.99:
And after with a few coats of paint and a newly covered seat:

Bug was practically beside herself with excitement when she saw it (with furniture) yesterday. Nans hasn't seen it yet, but will this weekend. I think she'll really like it too. Now if I can only get them to KEEP IT THAT CLEAN....
