A Christmas Candle

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, but softly gives itself away.

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all
I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart
Isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother…

Rest in Peace, Katelyn

KatelynNorman“Sweet Kate went to be with the Lord at 8:23am,” read an update posted Friday to a fundraising page for Norman. “She is now dancing with Jesus! Rest in Peace Katelyn!”

Just days after getting her “bucket list” wish to celebrate prom, 14-year-old Katelyn Norman died peacefully in her hospital bed after a long battle with bone cancer.

The teenager, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2011, passed away in the same hospital where she had donned a corsage and sash on Tuesday night for an impromptu prom celebration, put on by her friends and the staff at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital in Knoxville.

We offer our condolences to Katelyn’s family, friends, and community. Also our gratitude, for sharing this beautiful young soul with the world. May you eventually find peace and joy in Katelyn’s honor.
