“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Today is a very special day! Our sweet Ella is 2 today!!
I can't even express the JOY she has filled our lives with from her smile that just lights up the room to her sweet kisses we love her sooo much. She is so funny right now just learning to talk, everytime we mention birthday she says "Elmo" - yes she is having an Elmo party and she is slightly obsessed.

I suppposed to post this on Friday,but I could not put into words all the emotion I was feeling at the time. On April 27, 2005 Caleb, unborn Ella, and I were in a near fatal car accident. Looking back over the last 2 years I can't imagine the joy our lives would have lost if God had not protected that little girl. The doctors said she should not have lived, every time I think of that my heart just sinks. The other amazing thing is that she protected me, the doctors said if I had not been pregnant I probable would not have lived that she helped cushion me internally. Wow God is amazing in how he works.

I know some people might ask so why did God put you through all that? I can tell you jsut a few:

1)Life is short and we should live every day because right now might be our last moment
2)All the "things" we think are important are truly not
3) Life is a precisous gift from God and we should not waste it, but for the Grace of God not one of us would be here today

And with all of that said Thank God we are all well and good today and our sweet girl is now 2. I thank God for all the blessings in my life!

I don't think we will ever get over realizing how precious your life and that of your baby girl are. I'm so thankful for how God used her to save your life, and how you have blessed mine. Love you bunches!
