Lila Elizabeth---7 Months

Seven months ago today, this sweet baby girl, Lila Elizabeth, came into our lives. Did you know that was the only girl name Scott and I ever agreed on? It was the name we chose for our "one day" little girl when we were dating. It's still pretty much the only name we agree upon. Who would have thought that 4 years ago when we talked about that sweet name that we really would have our Lila Elizabeth and she would impact our lives forever.

People have moved on, forgotten and life has gone on but this mother knows every milestone that passes, every montlhly picture that should have been taken. Those are the days I cling to Lila's verse:

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious to you.
Numbers 6:24-25

The Lord did bless Lila and so many lives through her. The Lord did keep her, right in his loving arms. The Lord did make his face shine upon her and let his light shine through her short little life. And lastly, the Lord was gracious to her. She's not living a life of suffering, tubes, and hospitals. She is living a life of peace and wholeness with her Creator!

On this anniversary, my heart aches, my arms cry out to hold her but I cling to the One that holds us both.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
Psalm 20:7


  1. You are precious. I am praying for you and think of you often.

  2. This family hasn't forgotten! We still pray for you often! Love you!

  3. We have not forgotten! You are loved and prayed for still!! We celebrate with you over what God did and is doing because of Lila's life!
