Prayers Needed for these families

Did you hear about the terrible bus tragedy in Minnesota earlier this week? It's been all over the news about a traffic accident involving a school bus and two other vehicles, killing four precious children, including one nine-year-old girl, Emilee, adopted from China.

From the Houston Chronicle: "Two of those killed on the Lakeview School bus Tuesday afternoon were brothers. Another was the daughter of a teacher; the fourth, the son of a former teacher," and "At least 14 people were hurt, including some of the other 24 students aboard the bus and the drivers of the van and a pickup truck the bus rolled onto."

Sometimes life can seem overwhelming for us all, but when we hear news like this, we realize that things in our lives aren't so bad, they could be much worse. Three families lost their precious children this week. I can only imagine how completely devestated they are. My heart and prayers goes out to each one of them and to the friends who are now grieving their loss.
