An Unnatural Order
My sweet friend Cathy from "Updates on My Soldier" and her husband have lost their beloved son David. David had been ill a few months but his death was unexpected. Dave's brother Dan is on his way home from Iraq. Please go over and let Cathy and her family know that you are thinking of them at this difficult time.
Updates on my soldier: My Son David
Into your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brother. In this life you embraced him with your tender love; deliver him now from every evil and bid him enter eternal rest.
The old order has passed away: welcome him then into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
