So there's a new(ish) song that's been getting really popular lately called "Cinderella" sung by Steven Curtis Chapman.

Quote
She spins and she sways to whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world.
And I'm sittin' here wearin' the weight of the world on my shoulders.
It's been a long day and there's still work to do,
She's pulling at me saying "Dad I need you!
There's a ball at the castle and I've been invited and I need to practice my dancin'"
"Oh please, daddy, please!"

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don't wanna miss even one song,
Cuz all to soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone

Great freaking song that really hits the hearts of any parent.

Yeah well the world sucks because the writer / singer of this song lost his 5 year old daughter in a tragic car accident tonight

That is so sad.  I have his latest cd, and that song should be on ever father's playlist.  It will be on mine whenever we have kids.

The chapmans have adopted three children, and promote adoption throughout his concerts. 

My prayers and thoughts are with his family.


Here is the video of his song

yeah me too - I bought the CD after only hearing a sample of that song.

Just the random thought of that song alone has caused me to take extra time out of my day to do special things with my daughter than I normally would.

This news really knocked the wind out of my sails tonight. I went and laid in bed with my daughter for an hour after hearing it.

SCC is one of my only heroes in this world.

My wife and I got to meet him during his last tour. We also met Mary Beth, both his sons and saw his two other daughters on stage during the show.

Our hearts are absolutely breaking.

SCC wrote this song for friends of the family who had lost their child. It's call With Hope. 

Quote
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 ...

So we can cry with hope
And say goodbye with hope

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

There are no goodbyes in Christ.  Death is not the end for Maria.

If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead..

That song doesn't do anything for me whatsoever, but a tragic story nonetheless.  My heart goes out to their family.

What a terrible tragedy. My thoughts and well-wishes go to the Chapman family.

On a somber related note, I saw on one of the news shows some months ago that there's increasing lobbying of the SUV car companies to set up some sort of rear-view monitor or safety device to prevent such tragic accidents. Sadly, such changes are too late for this family, but to prevent more tragedies, I hope the car companies listen.

Wow, that's awful.  My heart definitely goes out to them.

We just had a person on our team whose sister's 2-year-old was killed in a similar situation.  A neighbor pulled into the driveway to drop something off, the kids were playing hide and seek in the front yard, and one of them had laid down behind the SUV to hide.  There was no way the neighbor could see her, and backed over her on the way out.  Horrible situation.

My wife and I have been long time fans of SCC and also got to meet him on his last tour.  My wife sent me the link today about the accident, and of course we feel just awful.  Lousy stuff like this happens all the time, but it feels even worse when its someone you "know".
