Still Remembering the Chapmans


In the words of Steven Curtis Chapman himself. To think of how he has reached so many of us with his music... and that today it speaks to and ministers to his own family. Still praying for this great family and their loss and pain. Yet we do have hope in Him and His promises forevermore.

This has moved me ... and I'm still speechless which does nothing for my post. We so need to cherish each and every day. We have not idea what God has in store for our lives, long or short, today or tomorrow. SCC said it best....

"With Hope" by Steven Curtis Chapman
This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

This is such a tragedy...my heart and my prayers go out to all the Chapman family.

Unfortunately, this kind of death happens, on average, more than 225 times EVERY YEAR. Kids are typically killed in their own driveway by members of their family. Safe Kids USA, the kids charity, has lifesaving tips for parents here:
