We were so blessed to be able to see Rhema’s buddy Eli while in Knoxville!!!! The weather was horrible and our day had been one delay after another, but at the last moment things lined-up and it worked out! We had a double blessing in that we got to meet Sky, Eli’s sister, too! Wow! We could not get over how much Eli had grown and changed from our visit last year! He actually talked quite a bit to us and even talked to Rhema who kept pushing buttons in his wheelie! LOL! They were so cute together!
It was so wonderful to see Eli and talk with Dawn, his momma. Dawn is truly an extraordinary woman, I’m honored to call her friend. Dawn and I have a unique connection that began while Eli was still in her womb. I’m so proud of the young man he is becoming and the momma Dawn is to both of her precious kids. Sky is amazing — she carries herself well as a young lady, is very supportive of Eli, and is just an all around cool kid! Even though our meeting was brief, it felt like-home talking to this family from our Knoxville roots. I wish we lived closer so our kids could play and know more of each other. We love these precious folks and are so glad that many of you join us daily in lifting Eli up in prayers!
