IMG_6998Today, our family is celebrating life.

The wee little life of our 6th baby, Elijah James, who went to be with Jesus when he was still so small.IMG_7014
His life was brief, but his impact was deep and lasting.

We celebrated his birthday today like other birthdays in our house; with cake, a gift, a special dinner, balloons, and sweet, binding laughter
because Elijah’s life brings us happiness.
Not because we overlook our grief, but because
IMG_7006we are loved by the great God of redemption.

IMG_7003Elijah’s birth story is precious to me because God used it to show me His redemption despite my emptiness and hurt.
