Today I celebrate the precious little girl The Lord so graciously provided.
Ella’s heart is so full of gentleness, her spirit made for adventure. I never thought I could learn so much about grace & beauty from someone so small, The Lord really does use the seemingly small ones to humble and teach us. She is loving, so loving; and bold, and probably the bravest person I’ve ever met to move continents, time zones and traditions to be our little girl. Ella thinks of the best for her brother, asks if she can pray, talks about Jesus, sings like her daddy, and blesses everyone she meets. I couldn’t have asked for a better gift to celebrate each year.
Happy Birthday, Ella Bear, this world is that much fuller & more lovely because God chose to put you here.
