A successful lawyer and businessman, H. Spafford, experienced unspeakable tragedy in 1873. After burying his son and losing his business in a great fire, he decided to start again in Europe sending his family ahead by ship while he stayed to sort out unexpected business problems. -- Four days into the journey, the ship carrying his family hit another vessel and within 12 minutes his four children had all drowned. The only survivor, his wife, Anna. -- Horatio Spafford was hit with deep grief once more. He boarded the next ship to Europe to join his grieving wife, and when he passed the same area where his four children had died he looked out onto the horizon and penned one of the most rousing spiritual songs ever written, “It is Well with my Soul”. -- Need a life-raft today? Reach up, He is there. --
