Remembering CJ



Words are so inadequate at times.

This is one of those times.

CJ's family and friends will lay him to rest this weekend. Although I never met this young man, his mom spoke often of her oldest son in her blog. Her love and pride for her Airman made me smile, with each word she wrote. As a mom, the pain Hallie must be suffering has no words. I can only turn to the Word of God...


"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

AMom,
May God keep CJ's family in His care - and may CJ himself now know the peace that passes understanding.
