There is much to be learned from the miracle of birth and death.
Both are challenging, awakening, and humbling.
Both expand our limited ability to see beyond the brevity and beauty of human life.
William Wordsworth wrote that babies come into the world trailing clouds of glory. The dying hold the same cloud and ride it home.
Photographer Sarah Robertson of Image Bearer's Photography, captured the first and final breath of Paul Perkins who's heart beat for less than an hour and a half. During that time he was surrounded by love.
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
