Marsha has been such an encouragement to so many of us and her love for and the joy she (and her husband David) takes in them just literally pours out of her blog.
It reminds me so much of Steven Curtis Chapman’s family and their tragic loss of Maria. I just pray that the Lord will just strengthen and comfort the Drews as they continue to face each day with hope. One step at a time. One day at a time.
I saw on one of the Chapmans’ interviews where they found a little picture that Maria had drawn that just said "See" on it and had some little butterflies on it. Mary Beth said that it felt like Maria was giving her a reminder to "Taste and see that the Lord is good." Psalm 34:8
I can only imagine just what a dark and difficult time this is for the Drew family, but I pray that through it all God will grant them gentle reminders of His love for them and the hope for better days.
Please pray for their whole family. I’m sure they will appreciate it!
Edited to add: They’ve posted an update on Marsha’s blog and she says that they can feel themselves being held in the palm of God’s hand.
Also, Emily at The Learning Never Stops came up with an absolutely divinely inspired idea to send Marsha an iPod loaded with uplifting songs for the days to come. Feel free to suggest your favorites there.
