Steven Curtis Chapman has been one of my favorite musicians since I was a pre-teen.
He writes and sings some of the most beautiful songs. Here is a video and interview about one of my favorite songs that he created. This beautiful song was written by him for his daughters.
Yesterday He and his family experienced a heartwrenching loss.
Their 4 year old daughter, Maria, was killed in an accident.
I could not stop crying this morning as I thought of the lyrics to this song:
And Here is the story behind the song:

More than five years ago The Chapman's founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. The ministry’s goal is to help families reduce the financial barrier of adoption, and has provided grants to over 1,700 families wishing to adopt orphans from around the world. Maria, was their youngest daughter, and also adopted.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the Chapman family over this tragedy,
our prayers are with you.
