Butterfly Boxes for Bereaved Moms
Butterfly Boxes for Bereaved Moms are a gift for bereaved mothers who have recently experienced a pregnancy loss-- in any trimester--or early infant death.
Butterfly Boxes are filled with gift items that have special meaning and are thoughtfully put together for the bereaved mother. My heart is to minister the love of Christ to grieving moms in a meaningful way, and, from that desire, the Lord birthed the idea of the Butterfly Box.
Each gift within the Butterfly Box is chosen with a special meaning in mind.
Use of Color Purple--The color purple, past and present, is considered to hold many meanings, and is thought to stir more feelings than any other color. Among these are: spirituality, dignity and royalty.
Butterfly Pin--Butterflies for centuries have been a symbol of loved ones who have died, particularly babies and children. Butterflies are also symbolic of rebirth after death. “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.’” (John 11:25)
Cuddle Bunny/Bear--Something to hold as you remember your Butterfly Baby.
Candle--The ritual of lighting a candle to pay tribute to a life that has ‘passed’ has long been a part of our culture. The lit candle signifies that the memory of the person still lives on and shines brightly. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)
During your time of bereavement, it is important to remember that you need to take care of yourself. So, also included inside the box:
Personal Care Product--Something to nurture your body.
Journal--Something to nurture your spirit.
Devotional--Something to nurture your soul.
