"Ellie Sofia Maravilla" - this is what Luis fondly calls her. She is our little "Marvel" or "Wonder". We can't stop gazing at how perfect she was made. Her long curly eyelashes. Her curly dark hair. Her tiny fingers and perfectly shaped feet. Her cute little button nose. Her tan, soft skin. Her big bright eyes! Her soft rosy lips. Oh! And her adorable outie belly button! I tell her every day, "Mommy loves you Ellie Sofia. Daddy loves you.....but God loves you even more! And God made you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. And He has a plan for your life!" Knowing that she is fearfully and wonderfully made with a purpose to glorify God gives us a huge sense of responsibility. Will you pray for us as you think of it? For unity in parenting, for wisdom and discernment in raising her in the fear and love of the Lord. So that we might not sin against her...and that when we do we will humbly ask for forgiveness and teach her of God's grace. And that she will grow up with a love and passion for serving the Lord!
