A Light In The Darkness | North Port, FL Photographer

September 01, 2016  •  9 Comments

This photo is so special and so powerful for so many reasons.

If you are local to us, you might have heard the story of little Sawyer Gordon who was recently hit by a truck while riding his bike and passed away.  We happen to go to church with Sawyer's family.  We also go to church with the young man that was driving the truck.  This family has shown such strength, love, faith, and devotion through the wake of this tragedy.  To call it awe inspiring is an understatement.

They could have been angry.  So many people would have been.  They could have gone to that deep, dark place that calls to so many after losing a child, especially one as young as Sawyer.  But they didn't.  their testament of faith is like nothing we have ever seen before.  The Gordon's have embraced this young man with unconditional love and understanding.  He too could have gone to a very dark place, but this tremendous family has made sure that that did not happen.  They have put all of their faith in God's plan.  It is truly amazing.

This past Sunday, the young man who was driving the truck was baptized.  This photo was taken immediately after.  The Gordon's were standing just off to the side patiently waiting for him to arise out of the water as a new and Godly man.  Their faces were filled with pure love and so much pride for the steps that this young man has taken despite the terrible circumstances that have brought them together.

Light, love, hope, and faith.  This is what it's all about.

If you would like to reach out to the Gordon family to find out more about how they have such peace, love, and understanding, please reach out to them at memoriesofsawyer@yahoo.com
