Jinkies! Tonight we filmed a Halloween themed Blimey Cow, and I dressed up as Velma from Scooby-Doo. It was fun :) I haven't dressed up for Halloween in years. Or maybe I never have. I have a vague recollection of being The Virgin Mary when I was super young..? but that could've been for Christmas, haha. I can't remember, because we never celebrated Halloween growing up.
Everyone's costumes looked great! Obviously I didn't have the good camera because Josh was using it to film, so these are from the iTouch. I put some more on Facebook so you guys didn't have to wade through a ton of pictures again. ;) Josh is editing the footage right now and it's coming together really well :D Should be up tomorrow!
After we wrapped up, we headed to Starbucks and met up with Alex and Matt. It was so good to see them! I really enjoyed my hour of chat-time with them. They're cool.
And now what's really on my mind...
My heart is so heavy for the Perry family tonight. Their 28 day old son Justice passed away this afternoon after almost a month of continuous fighting. There were a ton of complications with his heart, which caused even more complications with the rest of his organs and in the end his little body just couldn't make it. I don't understand why these things happen.. I cried about it a lot when I found out. I had to push it out of my thoughts at the shoot, but now that it's all over... I'm overwhelmed again. I can't imagine what the Perry's are going through. We know that his little life had a great purpose.. his story has touched more people than I can wrap my head around.. But my hearts hurts so bad for Sara. I can't imagine anything worse for a mother to lose her child. I met Troy and Sara shortly after they found out they were pregnant, and they've always spoken of Justice with such love, tenderness, and faith for his wholeness.. my faith has been challenged and strengthened in the few short months I've known them (especially this last month). Pray also for their five year old son Noah, as he tries to understand everything that's being thrown at him.. Such a difficult thing to explain to a kid... I can't imagine... My heart aches for them.. But God is great and He is worthy of all praise, even in the midst of such heartache! Just keep all three of them in your prayers.
