While recording their Emergency album, the band decided to record in the Bahamas at Compass Point Studios in Nassau. While working along the beach, lead singer James "JT" Taylor watched the band members' children happily at play and thought to himself "How blessed we are. God has been good to us and we should cherish it." Taylor submitted the idea to the band's bass player Robert "Kool" Bell, who liked it.
This song had special meaning for Bell, who found out his father was listening to the song when he died in October 1985. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)
