One Year With Ella Joy!!!

Well, it finally happened.  Our sweet Ella Joy turned one year old last week.  Even while I still pregnant with her I was determined to treasure every moment and while time has absolutely flown by, I can honestly say that I have appreciated every day that we have been blessed with her.

ONE YEAR OLD!!!

She is our sunshine.  She is our treasure.  Never could we imagine our lives without her.  To people who don't really know us, she is just "another baby".  Even worse, just "another girl".  Our Ella is the most precious gift we could have imagined.  Thank you Lord for entrusting us with our dear little girl!

Grace, thank you for sharing your love for your children in such an honest and beautiful way. Your words really struck a cord with me when you said that some people might look at Ella as "just another baby or worse, just another girl". Aren't we glad that God doesn't look at us like that? He has made each of us so beautifully and uniquely and given His Son for us, imparted His Spirit in EACH of us. His love is endless, as is His creativity in forming each individual boy and girl with a purpose. I don't mean to ramble a sermon, but I do hope that more people will realize His love and desire Him for their own lives. Thank you for testifying of God's goodness!!!! Love you! :=)
