Our precious little Elliana Joy celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday(she requested a “blluterfly” party). It seriously feels like I just gave birth to her (and since then, have given birth to another sweet babe!)…..life is always changing – so quickly it seems, especially the more little ones you have…someone is always doing something new, losing a tooth, getting a tooth, learning to read, learning to crawl, etc. etc. I’m just so thankful I get to be here every hour of every day to take in all of the “gifts” God gives me moment by moment. If you have the privilege to know our little Ellie, you know she truly has lived up to her name (JOY!). She has been so much fun, and amidst many changes and the rigors of ministry and life, she has brought us so much joy, which makes us so thankful to the One who created her! She is uniquely beautiful, has a caring heart, and smiles alot! Elliana, we love you so!
