My sister, Tammy, invited my wife and I to her church service this past Sunday,
to celebrate All Saints.
The entire church was decorated with Butterflies of various colors,
which was the creative work of my sister and a few other members of the parish.
I especially liked the pattern of Butterflies making up the flame
of the Spirit beside the Cross of our Lord.
Each attendee was given two paper Butterflies,
one to commemorate a living saint who has touched our lives,
the other for a saint in paradise who inspires us on our journey.
We all have special saints in heaven,
those we long to see when our journey home is complete.
My wife, Susan, and I have a special saint
one we only know as Poppy Seed.
