One year ago today, God sent another little person into my life. Her name is Ellie, and she is my eighth great-grandchild. Although miles have kept us apart, I know this child deep in my heart. I know that from the tips of her tiny toes to the fine hairs on her pretty head that she is a little miracle. I know that she is a part of God’s plan in this world.
All life is a miracle. When God first said, “Let there be…” the universe in all its splendor was created…and the rest is history.
“For I know the plans I have for you…” (Jeremiah 29:11) We are all a part of that plan whether we are one year old or eighty.
And so today, I thank God for Ellie and wish her a birthday full of blessings and a life full of love.
