God hath not promised skies always blue

Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through

God hath not promised sun without rain

Joy without sorrow, peace without pain

But God hath promised strength for the day

Rest for the laborer, light on the way

Grace for the trial, help from above

Unfailing sympathy, undying love.

We find comfort in knowing that Christopher is "home" in heaven

even though he could not come home with us.

We trust that everything happens for a purpose,

though the reason is beyond our understanding.

In our lives briefly, in our hearts forever.
