Caden Joelle Chastain

Caden Joelle Chastain you will be greatly missed sweet baby girl. Last Monday one of my dearest and best friends lost her 8 month old baby girl. I could not do another blog without first saying a few words about Caden. She was such a joy to everyone who met her. And not to mention absolutely beautiful. She had the cutest little cheeks and the sweetest smile. She was a blessing to everyone and we are so thankful to Cari and Andy for sharing their little blessing with us while she was here. Please be in prayer for Cari and Andy Chastain in the coming weeks and months as they adjust to the path the LORD God Almight has chosen for them. They are pillars of faith and a strong testimony to all of God's sovereignty, and the joy and peace that can be had no matter the circumstances through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you would like to leave them a message or just let them know you are praying please visit their blog.

We may never know why God has chosen to take Caden home to be with him but we know she is safe in the arms of Jesus and we know that God is faithful to his promises, especially Romans 8:28. Caden's life served great purpose and will continue to serve great purpose and God will be glorified and has already been glorified, especially through the testimony and strength seen in Cari and Andy. One of the songs Cari chose to sing at her daughter's funeral was Blessed Be Thy Name "you give and you take away, you give and you take away, but blessed be thy name." We are praying to see miracles through the loss of Caden. Please join us in this prayer. Life is short and it is my personal believe Christ will be returning soon. Don't hesitate to share of God's great love for us. God too knows what it is like to loose a child, a son, and he died that we may have life, and have it abundantly.
