~This Is Faith~


My son, Tom, sent me today's clip from ABC's Good Morning America show. Though many of you are aware that the daughter of Christian songwriter, Steven Curtis Chapman, died in May when her older brother accidentally hit her with his car, many of you may not be. I feel this is worth posting here. The remarkable faith that this family has, is a lesson to all of us. If you can have faith during the darkest hours of life....you have true faith.

The song, Cinderella, that he wrote for his daughter, reminds me so much of my grand-daughter, Ella, and the day Jim and I took her and Jackson to Squire's Castle. I've added it as the first song on my playlist.

The Youtube video is here: Cinderella.

Life is too short, and too fragile. May God continue to hold this family in the palms of His hands.

They certainly are a shining example of faith! We can all learn by their example. Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome, Marci. They really are a very strong family who recognize that although they have faith and hope, counseling is really necessary, too!

That's a really sad event. And that is a serious understatement. huh. If their faith is helping at all, it's a faith worth having.

Carol said...

That's for sure. It's really the best testimony anyone could give.

I'm going to go wake Claire up and squeeze her until she can't breathe...then I'm going to go pick Hope up at Safety Town and wet her hair with my tears. I'd never heard the song...I need a Kleenex...

Precious, precious Maria and my angel Hope are the same age...and came home right around the same time...

I love you Carol...

Well, now that I've wiped all my tears....

Your blog is very nice.

I'm so glad you shared that video. I was shocked when I found out and I sure needed to see how they were doing.

Cathe...It is amazing, isn't it? They are the epitome of what faith is. I'm glad you found me!
