Every little bit of six

Recently in the car I had a Kids Bop CD playing. Ellie asked, mom can you change it to some Jesus music? I did and she responded…

“It calms my heart.”

I pray Jesus is the one who always calms her heart no matter what life throws at her. Ellie has always talked about Jesus and made sure everyone else knows about Him as well. However, this past year I have watched Him move in her heart in a different way. He is no longer a relationship mom and dad want her to have, she truly loves to worship Him and she desperately wants others to know Him as well. I believe Jesus speaks to her heart on a deep level. She gets so broken hearted when a friend tells her they don’t believe the same way. However, what others believe has never changed who she knows to be true and real. I pray her relationship with Jesus continues to grow so strong that nothing and no one can change who she knows to be real, true and alive.

This past year has been a leap of faith not as much for Ellie as it has been for Jessie and I. We have trusted Jesus in sending her to public school, she now gets to walk over to her friends house to play (it’s next door) 😂 she earns an allowance and this coming school year we might just let her ride the school bus that she has been begging to ride. Not sure if we can take that last leap yet. 😂 Ellie walks into each new freedom with a smile on her face and is slowly learning that every ounce of freedom she receives comes with responsibility. I truly hate that she’s growing up but I’m thankful Jessie and I get to guide her in that growth. Here’s to believing that six comes with a little less attitude and sass. 😂 No matter what, this is six and I’m going to enjoy it… every little bit.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
