Heaven is the face




I found this video while blog hopping over at Traci Michelle's. I still get teary eyed and emotional when I think about Steven Curtis Chapman and his family. If you don't know the story already, his adopted daughter Maria was tragically killed when a family member accidently struck her in the driveway. It happens so often and every time I hear about it I just think how can they go on?? How do you live with that kind of pain? Yet through it all their family drew even closer to the Lord, and his music ministry continues to bless people all over the world. You will love this song...be blessed!













Have a blessed day.

  2. I can remember the day it was announced. I always go back to the son and wonder how he is doing. I get a lump in my throat just thinking about it. What a wonderful and inspiring family.

  5. Oh I had not heard the actual story of what had happened... UGH such heartache for their family!! I am like you I never understand how they last a day after something like this... Beautiful song.. The one song that always gets me is "Held" by Natalie Grant, it always makes me tear up..

  6. I wasn't familiar with this story. What an amazing testimony for a family. I studied Job in the bible the other night and man, if I had troubles and sorrows I don't think I would have the righteousness Job had or that Steven and his family displayed. However God works all things for good, wether we see the final outcome or just a portion of the tapestry he is weaving. Today I'm going to Love on my babies a little extra!!!

  9. I heard this song just the other day on the radio and sat at a red light and just cried. Thinking of that poor family. But what a testimony to turn grief into ministry.

  22. to me the hardest part is that the daughter did it. I have a teenage daughter and she absolutely adores her baby siblings. If something like this happened, she just would not forgive herself. I dont know how the daughter went on. Man alive!
