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.

Remembering: Quintessential Jona

Seeing the following conversation on a Facebook page, dedicated to remembering Jona, made me smile:

Charlene wrote:
I never met Jona, but I’ve been telling everyone that he’s my friend. I can’t wait to meet him someday.

Several of Jona’s friends commented:

Jona would not have needed long to become your friend. He was a very friendly guy and would probably have introduced himself before you had a chance to!

Not to mention telling a blond joke!

And by the time you were leaving teasing you about something.

What a blessing to read your descriptions of him – even through tears... Thank-you! In just a few short phrases, you all captured the essence of his personality!

I just realized your nephew Jona is the same Jonatan we faithfully prayed for in our Sunday School class. Carrie Liss would give us regular updates and such. He sounds like a remarkable young man who was in love with Jesus, all the moreso now!
