Note: all new blog posts will appear under this post for a while. The Inspiration: My inspiration for this year's charity event, Rescued by Love, of course continues to be my little girl, Sadie Mae. Her story here, just in case you are new to the blog. It's been almost 2 years, she is a happy, healthy, thriving little girl. I can't help but to think of God's goodness as I watch her learn to climb, use sign language, and play with her Daddy. In January I was thinking about this year's event, and all the things God has done. I was reading Luke 7:11-15 and was instantly struck by the compassion so surely displayed. I thought for a minute how this related to my life and quickly became overwhelmed...most certain that like the mother in that funeral procession for her son, I too was overcome with grief during Sadie's birth. Although we never "lost" Sadie Mae we were tiptoeing on the edge of what seemed to be devastating circumstances. It was in this moment that I know, without a doubt, God looked down, saw our tears, and raised her from "impossible" circumstances. He for sure is a God of compassion, and is so willing and ready to rescue us with His love. "Rescued by Love" is my thank you for what the Lord has done...for our hearts, and for our little girl. How he's given us eternal life, as well as an earthly life to share with her.
I'm beyond thrilled to finally announce the details! Remember last year's event Angels Among Us? It's very similar, just a few things have changed. First of all tutu's, bow ties, gingham, creams, and browns with hints of red. That's the plan! Here's how to participate....
