The Lion and the Lamb

One week before Sage moved on to bigger and better things Spencer felt prompted to take our family on a vacation. We went to Sea World, San Diego Zoo, and the Wild Animal Park. We saw so many of our Heavenly Father’s amazing creations! We enjoyed our family to the fullest! I cried the entire time because, I felt so blessed to have so many blessings!

A few days later Sage passed away. I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to spend that time with Sage and all of the animals! I think about the creation of the world and all of the animals that were placed here for us to enjoy their beauty! When you lose something so dear to your heart it shakes you to the very core of who you are. Your testimony is so fragile yet so much stronger than ever before. One thing that strengthens my belief that there is a Loving Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ is the animals! Each and every one of them are proof that something greater than ourselves made all of these magnificent creatures! I can not help but view them all with out seeing the hand of my Father in Heaven! I also believe that Sage loves all of Gods creatures as well! He made sure we saw almost all of them before he left! When ever I hear the song of a bird, or see a Momma animal with her baby I think of Sage. I used to call Sage my Baby Bird because he was always nursing!
I look forward to the day that the Lion and Lamb will lay down together and a little child “SAGE” will lead them! Until that day I will just enjoy the beauty all around me. I will look at all of Heavens creations and know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and created this beautiful world for me! This song was sang at Sage’s funeral. I think it is perfect going along with all of the animals!

The song was a perfect fit for his funeral. Every time I hear it I think of him. Sage was such a curious boy, and he did love all of the earths creatures.
