Maria Sue Chapman's memorial service
Listen well to Caleb Chapman's statement. His graduation from high school (often seen as a primary step into adulthood) was marred by this tragedy, but he took a giant step into manhood with those beautiful, touching words.
And how inspiring it is to see people praising God even in the face of such loss! What a testament to the hope we have through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! We grieve, yes, but we are not consumed by it because we know that such loss is only temporary and that an eternity of joy awaits us. We lean on Jesus in the good times and the bad and he carries us all the way through. As they sang at the memorial, blessed be his name!
