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.

20 April 2016


Five years ago, at almost midnight on April 20, we kissed our beloved Jona goodbye for the last time on this broken earth. Esteban’s and Esther’s and Marcos’ lives had been consumed with his care during those last twenty months; our family had the privilege of assisting with hospice care during the last month. Adjustment to life without him is long and difficult...

We appreciate those who pray for us as we miss him – more than ever! But we rejoice that Jona is in the presence of his Savior, whom he loved and served with joy during the sixteen and a half years he was given here with us. And we look forward – more than ever – to the Day when all wrongs will be right and all tears will be forever wiped away.

Today we cling to Truth!

I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying:
“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said:
“Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me:
“Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
(Revelation 21)

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?”
(John 11)

Please visit the website set up by friends and family and read how God changed Jona’s life and enabled him to face the most difficult of circumstances with contentment, trust, and joy. And today He can do the same for you!
