Sarah's Butterflies Kick-Off

    Sarah's Butterflies will have its annual kick-off on November 15, 2015.   The ministry of Sarah's Butterflies began as Sarah's Toybox in 2010.  We have distributed over 1,000 Blessing Bags and over 200 school supplies bags.
    The impact of the ministry is growing in ripples.  Each year we spread further from base to bless.  We are reaching souls for God.
     Come out with us on December 26th to help spread hope.  We will meet at Love Christian Center on the corner of Hamilton and Bond at 9:00 to sort, pack and distribute.

Faces of Loss

     A few years ago, I posted a story to Faces of Loss about Sarah's death.  I used a post from this blog and submitted it.
     A few months ago, they posted it and recently I was contacted about reading my story so that it can be an audio version.  I am going to do that this afternoon.
      I wrote that story in 2012 hoping to help some other family dealing with infant loss.  Sarah's death was sudden and unexpected.  None of us could have fathomed what November 15, 2009 held for us.  In one sense it was the end-the end of Sarah's life.  It was also the beginning-the beginning of her eternal life in Heaven.  It also signaled the start of making Sarah's life count.
     Sarah might have only lived for 3 days but those three days were packed with family loving on her.  She was photographed more times than some celebrities.  Sarah should be sleeping at home right now and getting up soon so that she can head off to Kindergarten but she is in Heaven with Jesus and she is safe.
       While Sarah is in Heaven and I am left to miss her, I choose to make the world a better place because Sarah Elisabeth Richardson lived here.
