{Sad Hope Songs} "Beauty Will Rise" by Steven Curtis Chapman


This song has been on repeat on my iPod since Eve died.  It has become my anthem.  As I wrote yesterday, the hope that I am clutching to through the questions and tears and darkness is that God will make something unbelievably lovely out of this present pain.
I hope.  Oh, how I hope.

Today, it is fourteen weeks since we said goodbye to our precious daughter.  I miss her so much.  Hope is all that's left now.  Maybe hope is all there ever was, all there ever is, for any of us.

Will you hope with me, for all of us?




Every weekend I share a song that has been particularly soothing or healing to me since my daughter, Eve, was stillborn. I call these “sad hope songs,” because they are usually melancholy sounding but also full of the beautiful hope that is born out of pain and suffering. To pass a song on to me, please leave your recommendation in the comments.
