A fitting tribute

Today is Tuesday, and I'm feeling so much better. I'm eating real food and so far my stomach is cooperating, thank God. Thank you so much to everyone who left me a note of encouragement!
Yesterday I missed the special celebration in honor of our dear friend Blake Hubbard's 15th birthday. I was so sad to miss it. But I got to see part of it, and I want to share that with you. If you need a bit of inspiration, take the time to watch this video. You'll be glad you did.

**This video was made by Inkspot Crow Films. If you're in need of your own documentary about love, I urge you to check them out. Philip and Mackenzie are delightful. They're based in Durham, North Carolina, but they're willing to travel. Their work is amazing!


  1. Oh Richella, thank you so much for sharing the video. I felt like I knew him. What a great kid. Glad to know I'll see him someday...in heaven. :)

  2. What a moving and loving testimony to a life well lived. Glory to God for his life and his parents. Thank you for sharing this. I have prayed for his family since you first told of this tragic story. Lovely people that show the grace of God.

  3. Great video! What an inspiration. I am sorry that you weren't able to attend...but thanks for sharing this...xo Dana

  4. Richella,
    Thank you for sharing Blake's video on your blog today. We missed seeing you last night but I hope you're feeling good today!
    All the best,

  5. Richella, So sorry you have been sick! And yes, we have all felt the way you felt at one time or another. I feel like such a lazy person most of the time! My mind is always going, planning dinner parties, decorating, cleaning, etc. which is all good and well except my energy level and body just doesn't seem to cooperate like it did even a couple of years ago! I never seem to get anything done....and what I do get done takes me twice as long!!

    So you see...we've all been there! But praise Jesus, He keeps me going!!

    The video was just the best. What a loving family and what a loss. Thank you for sharing and I know their testimony will touch others for God's Glory!

    Your blog continues to be the most lovely site!

  6. Richella,

  10. I cried watching this. What a beautiful testimony of a child who loved life and loved God.

  11. What a precious video and testimony that family has shared and I know they'll continue to share. Blake was so cute and I'm thankful they know he's in heaven.
    Thanks for sharing!
