in honor of my daughter

In honor of my daughter, Caden Joelle Chastain, who would have been one today, Andy and I would like you to remember her with us. Our dear friend, Richard, spent some time making a beautiful video of her for us. Please watch it. As you do, remember. Remember what God has done. Remember His mighty works through her life and death. Remember the words Andy and I have said.
Remember Caden. The light of our lives and joy of our hearts.

(Please remember to pause the music at the bottom of the page to hear the music on the video.)





Wasn't she beautiful?

As I prayed for you this morning, this verse popped into my head: John 14:1-3 "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." That's a promise - a promise that now includes One Little Sweetie waiting with Jesus.

So precious...thinking of you and Andy today and everyday. I hope that with each day the hurt becomes less painful to bear, and the knowledge that you will one day see Caden again carries you through the difficult days.
