I don't often write about tragedies that have occurred in our area. But, this one is heavy on my heart this morning. Yesterday afternoon around 3:00 p.m 2 teenagers and a child were killed when their car lost control and crossed the center line into oncoming traffic. (It was a rainy day)
All three of the children were siblings. 2 boys, twins - age 16 and a girl, age 9 died.
I can not imagine the anguish of this family right now. They have 10 children total. And, while I don't know them personally, Facebook is on fire right now with posts from people I know who DO know this family.
They're a godly, close knit family. And, the mother spoke at our mom's group a couple years ago. When I went to her facebook page, I thought she looked familiar and now I realize that's why. But, I'm haunted by their family photo from Christmas last year. All of their beautiful children are together and smiling.
I know there are many, many prayers being lifted up for them right now. But, I wanted to send out a request for even more prayer covering over the Martin family in the midst of this terrible time. Thanks.
