This was Clarissa’s face book post on June 20, 2013.
It’s the picture of them on the first day of school; his Senior year.
Elijah had gone on a trip the day after graduation.
We all missed him.
Boot camp was coming and we knew we weren’t prepared.
He rarely left home.
His presence always here.
He wasn’t one for sleepovers; preferring his bed to others.
Little did we know.
Clarissa and Thomas have devotions for Youth Group. The topic; Perseverance.
With the Olympics permeating much of our awake time; perseverance has been on the mind.
An eternal bond.
