Mabey Memories

.
The desire of my heart is to become the person God dreams of and share those dreams with others; to unleash personal and corporate creativiy within the church, overflowing it with passion and freedom while searching for the face and character of God.

Stephen Curtis Chapman

From the time I was 13 years old I have listened to Stephen Curtis Chapman and his music. First seeing him at a Wesleyan youth convention (I think in Urbana, Illinois) and after that I was hooked-we have been on many GREAT ADVENTURES SC2 and I:)
Through him I have laughed, cried, shouted, danced, swayed, jumped up and down BUT today I mourn....

I received an e-mail from dear friends and then the e-mail was confirmed through my bible study time with Beth Moore

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The 5-year-old daughter of Grammy-winning Christian music star Steven Curtis Chapman was struck and killed Wednesday by a sport utility vehicle driven by her brother, authorities said.
The girl, Maria, was hit in the driveway of the family’s home Wednesday afternoon by a Toyota Land Cruiser driven by her teenage brother, said Laura McPherson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The brother, whose name and exact age were not available, apparently did not see the girl, McPherson said. No charges are expected.



"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.'" Revelation 21:1-4

I went on Chapman's website and they just celebrated their oldest daughters engagement along with their son graduating high school. How horrible for this family and son that will have to endure this tragedy. They will be in my prayers in days to come.
