Golden Birthday

So🌠Lex... be the light of Christ

Celebrating birthdays is always a good thing....but "Golden Birthdays" should always be extra special!

Twenty-Two has always been a number that brings about let's say......emotions.  You were born on the 22nd as was Alex, our godson. You died on the 22nd (Alex's birthday) and our friend's daughter, So-phia was born and died on the 22nd.  .

When I realized it was your Golden Birthday this year- 22 on the 22nd....I completely turned into a puddle.  How could I make it special?!  I turned to google.  Not a good idea..... Until I found:

The Hebrew alphabet is made up of 22 letters which are used to compose the Word of  God.  The word of God is called a lamp, thus it is the light by which we are to live.  Light is used twenty-two times in the Gospel of John.  The 22nd time, John uses the word, he quotes Jesus: "I have come as a light into the world...."

 Christians are to walk in the light of Christ (John 3:21) and be the light of the world (Matthew 5:14).

For several years we have wanted to do something in memory of your beautiful spirit, Alexi.  Your Golden Birthday seems like the perfect time to launch something that the Myers and us have been dreaming up for years.

SO🌠 the light of Christ.  "SO" in memory of Sophia Myers who was born and died on the 22nd and "LEX" for you my sweet child whose life has saved ours by bringing us closer to our Maker.

This year and every year to follow we will find JOY in seeking "22" things per year that we feel spread your light, Sophia's light and the light of Christ in our world.

SO🌠 the light of Christ 

Stay tuned for the adventures of
 SO🌠LEX...a journey of love and healing

Happy Birthday baby...your golden light will forever shine!
