Steven Curtis Chapman has a new song out that makes me grieve when I hear it. I actually cry every time I hear it and ache for him. The song is "Heaven is the face" and is written about his very young daughter who was killed in a freak accident in their driveway a little over a year ago, I think. This song makes me cry just writing about it (in tears now). So many times I get busy or distracted in my own world that I get annoyed with my girls endless talking and arguing and what ever noise they may be making... I have often complained at the end of the day that my ears were bleeding from endless words and noises. I hear this song and I can't help but think about what if those noises were gone. SCC doesn't get to hear those noises anymore, as is the case for many parents. I think about this song and I begin to cherish every annoying sound and I am sure I am not the only stay-at-home mom who has tired ears by the end of the day-- I thank my Lord that He has given me these 2 precious little girls and I pray for patience when life gets in the way of cherishing moments.
