Amelia recites

From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise...Psalm 8:2a

Amelia is memorizing Bible verses along with her sisters for a memorization challenge at church. She has a different approach than the older children, but we are continually astonished by her ability to remember, and her sweet spirit as she quotes the verses.

Several months after this video was taken, Amelia prayed to accept Jesus.  Too young, I thought.  The skeptic in me slowly quieted as the months ticked on and she really was changed.  In October of 2009, I heard through a horrible buzzing in my ears as a doctor told us we had a 50/50 chance of keeping our Amelia here on earth.  She had encephalitis, nearly died, and now has global delays and difficulties related to a life-threatening and constant seizure disorder.  We beg your prayers, if you see this.  For more information, click on the "Amelia's Illness" link on the top menu above the header image.
