"Lifting up Ellie...and Team Potvin"

Ellie...I can imagine your beautiful smile looking down from heaven and seeing a gazillion balloons floating up to you!

In remembrance of precious Ellie Potvin, we released balloons today. Ellie went home to be with Jesus this past week on June 23rd. We recently learned how desperate her illness became and our family has been praying for Ellie this past week. She has shown us strength, courage and amazing love as she fought so hard to beat this nasty cancer that was growing in her body the past two years. We personally have never met Ellie and her family, but feel like we know them as Ellie's mom did such an amazing job updating on her condition and just sharing their life with the world. As a mom, I could relate to Amy and the love she had for her children and what a testimony Amy is on loving your child and caring for them all the way to the end...Ellie's end here on earth but the beginning of her eternal life with Jesus. I can't imagine the ache in her heart of missing her baby girl, but also the peace she must have to know that Ellie is whole and perfect and cradled in the arms of Jesus! Such opposite emotions...
Please continue to lift up The Potvin family...Tim, Amy and Grace (Ellie's twin sister) as they try to heal from the pain of Ellie's passing.
All the kids before releasing their balloons for Ellie!
Morgan with her pink balloon before she released it. My sweet girl was touched as well by Ellie and prayed with me this week for her and the family...I just love her compassionate heart and care for others...

Wow...it's been a while!

Since it's been so long that I have blogged, I decided just to put up a few pics of what we have done in the past month and hopefully now that is summer I will have alot more time to keep up with blogging!
