Steven Curtis Chapman - February 20th Lyrics




February 20th 2008
On the floor with her mom
Puttin' her shoes on
Getting ready for another day

February 20th
She says, 'Mom, is it true?
Does God really have a big, big house
Does it really have a lot of rooms?'
And she says,
'I really, really want to go there.'
And I said, 'Why don't we just talk to him.'
And that's what we did
On February 20th

February 20th
I did my best to explain
How it is that we all go to be with God
How it was the Savior came

February 20th
If it's true what he said
God himself sang along with the beautiful song
Of rejoicing in heaven
She said, 'Jesus please come and live in my heart.
And someday, can I come live with you?'
We could never have imagined
She'd be going there so soon

So soon

So soon

God only knows
Everything that happened in that moment
God only knows
What he whispered to her heart
God only knows
Just how thankful I will always be
That he gave her mom and me
February 20th

    In every family who has ever lost a child through sudden means there is a date that forever stays in their memory. Our's is June10th, 2007, a date we will never forget. There have been a thousand 'why's' and 'what if's since that time. Like the Chapman's our Maria was adopted. Like the Chapman's we miss our little Maria and like the Chapman's we will continue to take June 10th off to honor her memory.

    I lost my 17 year old son Zack on January 23, 2007. He was a senior in high school and had just received an acceptance letter on Jan. 19th from UNC Wilmington. He was so excited. I was and still am so very proud of him. I was sick at school with a high fever (info I received from friends at school) He must have been extremely lethargic because he was driving on a two lane road and crashed right into the back of a tractor trailer. I praise God, her died instantly. I love you Zack. Mama.
