A Four-year-old Hero, a Two-year-old Rescued, and My Heart is Breaking

I just read this opening paragraph moments ago:

A 4-year-old girl in Washington state pulled her little sister from the wreckage of a car crash that killed their mother, then kept the two of them warm under a blanket in the chilly rain for six hours until a passing driver found them.

Here’s the rest of the article. The report suggests, but doesn’t say explicitly, that the girls’ father is with them now.

The only verse that came to mind is Matthew 10:29. I don’t really have anything to say.

    Bless their little hearts. As a mother, I’m saddened and also proud of that four yr. old. What a very special child. I pray they recover and that God will comfort their father.

  3. It is amazing how even children can rise in the midst of tragedy and show courage and bravery. I will keep them in my prayers.

    And this is why we, as followers of Christ, must keep our eyes wide open to be a blessing…it may not be much, but stopping along side a stopped vehicle on the highway can open more doors than any fire-and-brimstone sermonizing…

    Praying for these little girls.

  7. Wow. That definitely was a God moment. I can’t even fathom my boys back a couple of years ago being able to do that at all. I am glad that no one kidnapped the children and that they were okay. That is very sad about their mother, and I am glad they are with their father. Definitely Christ watches over us when trouble comes (and when trouble isn’t near).
