Our Big Town Just Got Smaller

When you live in a place that's as big as Houston, you don't realize it's a small town that just got bigger over time. But it is.

Yesterday, we saw on the news that a 2-year-old had drowned in Spring, in the family's backyard pool. Looking at the map, I knew the family lived very close to our friends Randy and Danielle. I wondered if they knew them....

Then this morning I found out friends of ours from Cypress do know them. These two families are very, very close. Please pray for Steve & Kim Sommer and their kids. And please pray for the Proske family as they minister to the Sommers.

Sadly, drowning is a major cause of death for children in Texas. And you don't always realize the devastation that near-drownings cause as well. My friend Amy just did an interview in Dallas on keeping your kids safe during the summer. She has some great suggestions.
