One week...the world can change so much in the space of a week.

Sahara had a powerful sendoff on Saturday, and over the coming days, I plan to share some of the messages with you. I was so honored to be part of that community. The love in the room was alive, pulsing with light and laughter as we remembered the days and moments of Sahara's brief but amazing life.

We wept--men and women, boys and girls, all heartbroken over the loss. But even in our sorrow, we thanked God for Sahara. She truly was one of the miracles.

Or, as Amy so eloquently put it as she spoke to the utterly silent congregation, Wasn't she awesome?
