April 5, 2015


This Easter will forever be a special one in our family because it's the day that Eli chose to ask Jesus to live in his heart! He has been thinking and talking about it a lot lately, then on the way to church on Good Friday he told us that he wanted to 'light a red candle' on Easter. That's our church's way of recognizing a new believer's faith in Christ. We walked to the alter as a family (minus Dylan) and he prayed that Jesus would live in his heart and thanked Him for dying on the cross for our sins. I didn't expect it to hit me as hard as it did, but tears streamed down my face to hear my little boy put his trust in his Savior. Now he's not only our son but our brother in Christ!

The rest of the day was filled with Easter baskets and egg hunts, friends, food and celebrating. What a wonderful day!
