Things Come in Three’s

You’ve probably heard the saying that things come in three’s.

Well, those of us in Podunk, USA, have seen this play out, once again, as we just have not been able to catch a break this summer.

After church yesterday, we learned that another youngster, 16 year old Chase, lost his life in a single-car accident.

As my family tried to figure out if we knew him, we began to connect the dots.

I, personally, did not know him.  It’s vaguely possible that I subbed for him though.

I do, however, know his girlfriend.  She’s in our youth group, and her family attended my church until they moved away recently.

The Mr. works in the same profession as Chase’s father and knows him well.

Rooster had met Chase one time but knows his father better because Rooster interned at Chase’s father’s office.  In fact, they’ve teased each other often about their college football loyalties.

School begins on the 20th.  Chase would have been entering the eleventh grade, and he was a member of the soccer team.

I feel so sad for his friends who will mourn his absence.

As a mama, I’m once again hurting for his parents.

Sigh.

I’m asking, once again, that you would offer up prayers…this time for Chase’s family and friends.

Thanks all.
