Ellie's Baptism

Last Sunday, we had the great blessing of baptizing our sweet Ellie.  It was a precious and wonderful day.
Filled with beautiful people, meaningful words and of course a few {happy} mama tears.
Ellie was a complete angel, wearing the gown that all 4 of her girl cousins have worn before her, made by John's talented mother.  She was quiet as a mouse as her grandfather sprinkled the water over her, signifying the most meaningful covenant promise we are given as children of God.

It was a day that will be forever one of my favorites.
We love you darling girl.  More that you can even imagine or dream.
Higher than the moon and the stars.  Deeper then the deepest oceans and seas.
And the best part of that God loves you even more.
Even higher, even deeper, even beyond those wildest dreams.
My prayer is that you know, feel, and cherish that love from your earliest of days, and every day after that.
Because it is truly the greatest love of all.

"...Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds 
and glorify your Father in heaven."

 Matthew 5:15-16
