Bella received her Birthday Wishes!

COURAGE, BELIEF, FAITH and STRENGTH - - -This is what Bella taught us!

You may remember this story from Easter…After church Easter Sunday morning, Baylor, Kim and Trey went to visit Bella at her grave.  It was a special day for us.  We asked Bella to please let us know that you are OK and this simple prayer was answered.  When we got home there was a white dove next to the pond.  This dove stayed with us all day.  After calling Sister Uyen and sharing this good news, she said “that would make sense, Bella the red bird did not visit me today; she came to see you in her Easter white”  This day was very special because Bella sent a sign through to confirm with us that she is OK.  Three days later the white dove appeared again right outside of Trey’s office window.  This was brief but long enough for a few photos’ and yet again fueling our COURAGE, BELIEF, FAITH and STRENGTH.

Saturday September 8th was Bella’s Birthday.  We celebrated that morning at Chick-fil-A with a helium balloon launch.  All red balloons with white ribbons tied to them along with a message that children / adults wrote to send  Bella in Heaven. We know that Bella received these messages because we found one.  While cutting the grass this past Saturday (one week from the launch), Trey ran over a red balloon with a white ribbon.  Unfortunately the white ribbon was shredded, but he was able to get the red balloon.   This balloon traveled for miles back to Bella’s House and landed directly across the driveway from where we saw the white dove, Easter Sunday morning.  No message was attached, because we are sure that Bella kept it.  We are confident this is Bella communicating to us, since we never did have these balloon’s at our house…there was not a possible chance that one escaped…This was Bella, fueling our COURAGE, BELIEF, FAITH and STRENGTH!  Thank you Bella!

Please share / like this story with someone or others.  Hopefully it will have a positive impact on them; as it did for us!
