Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

"If you will just believe HIM..."

"I want to shout from the rooftops that if you will just believe Him, even though you can't understand now, even though some things hurt now, He will never truly hurt you. The pain we feel is a reminder that He is making it more than better – He's redeeming things so perfectly, that the pleasure He's preparing for me is beyond my comprehension; and so, even the pain is a grand evidence of His grace."

~ Amy Caldwell Bixby (May 23, 1974 - August 19, 2011)

Sharing the Life of Jona Torres

Today would have been Jona's 17th birthday...

We miss him more than ever... (How can words possibly begin to describe...?) But we know that he is rejoicing with His Savior in ways we can only begin to imagine.

Today we especially remember...

Jesus said:
I am the resurrection and the life;
he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,
and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.
Do you believe this?”

A very, very special "Thank-you!" to our dear friend Sarah Joy for her labor of love to our extended family and Jona's friends by creating the slideshow.

To God be the glory!
