I’m just now catching up on the news of the loss of Maria — the 5 year old daughter of Steven Curtis Chapman. I visited the web site the family has set up in memory of her and was touched by the family’s expression of love for their child and the sense of hope that is left in sharing their loss.

Today, I was browsing music on Rhapsody and “discovered” a song I hadn’t listened to before: “Miracle of the Moment”. The chorus says:

And He has given us a treasure called right now
And this is the only moment we can do anything about
And if it brings you tears

Then taste them as they fall
And let them soften your heart
And if it brings you laughter
Then throw your head back
And let it go, let it go
You gotta let it go

I think this song really captures the reality of life — especially in moments like these. God has truly blessed Steven Curtis Chapman with these lyrics — I pray that he and the Chapman family are comforted during this difficult time.
