Heidi is a woman from our church who has a big smile and an even bigger heart. She faithfully volunteers at the Calvary Garage Sale every summer and this year helped with VBS which was a huge highlight for her.

We had her over about six months ago when we found out that she hadn’t had a birthday party since she was a little girl. She asked if we would have one for her and we said, “Yes, of course, when your birthday?”

“October 5th,” was her reply.

We put it on the calendar and life flew by to the present.

Last night, we packed her roommates, staff and 20 other people into our dining room to celebrate Heidi’s life. It was a little taste of heaven. It’s such an honor to be a part of God’s big story.
