Ellia's Jesus Party - part 1

experienced a very sweet special evening tonight.... had an idea of putting something together to celebrate the "salvation" birthday of Ellia. Last year on July 6th, Ellia made her own decision to follow Christ and invite Him into her life... a decision we couldn't be more thankful and proud of. In celebration, we hosted an intimate dessert party (which Ellia named her "Jesus Party") with a few friends/family that have really been instrumental in the development and spiritual growth of Ellia. Unfortunately Peter's parents couldn't be there, but we had a wonderful time of fellowship, celebration and reflection. I am so thankful for the blessing of many dear, Jesus-loving influences in her life. We are so proud of Ellia and praise Jesus that she has come to a knowledge and belief in Him at such an early age. We thanked those with us tonight, prayed over Ellia and her years to come in the Lord and then enjoyed some yummy sweets and a homemade movie (not sure if I can get it on here or not, but will try!) :)

Here's a little look at a lovely celebration of our sweet girl:
