It's a bit of an awkward thing, really.
I'm sure we're all ready to wish Steven a very happy birthday; the day happens to also fall on the 6-month anniversary of Maria entering the Father's arms. But those left on earth have to carry on, with hope and assurance that we're not home yet; and that one day we will absolutely see those we've lost again.
Steven and friends have gone pheasant-hunting in the Dakotas for his birthday, says Jim. And he's due to sing the anthem for the Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
So happy birthday Steven. You are treasured so much. Our prayers continue on for you and all the Chapmans.
