A Testimony of God's Sovereignty and Grace
We watched Larry King's interview last Thursday with Steven Curtis Chapman and family talking about the tragic death of 5 yr-old adopted daughter Maria Sue. You can see all 6 parts of the program here. (Be sure to watch part 6/6 because there is an amazing story...)
As Steven Curtis Chapman prayed to God for comfort and that God would help him see that Maria Sue was safe shortly after the accident, he came across a drawing on the art table that Maria Sue had drawn the day she died...it had 6 petals and only one was colored in. Steven said the petals represented his 6 children, and the one completely colored in was Maria Sue..she is whole now, as she is in Heaven with Jesus. The word "SEE" was written in Maria's handwriting on the page with the flower and they knew that she had never learned to write that word...
The video and story behind the song "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman written long before Maria Sue's death.
