Letter: Anniversary of an angel

Letter: Anniversary of an angel

Dear Editor,

July 10, 2012, marks the one-year anniversary for Sophie Dale Sparks’ arrival home. It has been a learning lesson in faith, hope, love, and courage for me. To be honest, when I started sharing our Princess Sophie with the community on Facebook and in emails, I thought it was a good way to rally prayers for her. I have since learned that, along with asking something from you, Sophie also gave back much more to us in return.

She shared her many struggles, as well as victories. She enjoyed meeting and talking, loving, and sharing her life with so many of you. I know that our hearts have been knit together in love solely by Jesus. She taught us that we are all on this journey together, and it is together that we learn and stand strong as we encourage and build one another up in the faith.

She shared her journey, the whispers of love from our Lord, the pain and the sorrow, the heartbreak and joys of life. In Sophie, we found hope, encouragement, and inspiration. My hope and prayer is that we will never forget what Sophie taught and that she will continue to bring others to God.

Real is what Sophie was, not just quotes on a picture. She taught us that with faith, we can endure anything. We must only fully rely on God! Many of us act as if we are in competition with one another, but we aren’t. We have each been given a gift and are jointly fit together to make up the Body of Christ, each one operating in the gift we have been given.

With my whole heart, I thank each of you for listening and praying for our precious Sophie. I know without a doubt that her journey doesn’t stop here. Her journey will be carried out in each life she touched. Her five years were little, but her lesson was and will continue to be huge!

I sincerely love her mom and dad, who so unselfishly allowed me to play such a role in their daughter’s life and for allowing me to share Sophie’s sunshine with all of you.

I am the godmother of an absolute angel and I am forever grateful!
