Yesterday was such a special day for our family; Iyla received her First Holy Communion. To watch her grow in her faith and really understand the practices of our church is such a joy. I pray that she always feels the peace of Jesus and the light of his love. I hope that she continues to grow in grace with the confidence, joy, and excitement that she felt as we prepared for this special milestone. Watching my sweet girl let Jesus into her heart in this special way was a very proud moment for this mumma!
Earlier this year, Craig and I were encouraged to keep the focus of the day on the sacrament. While we both love a festive party; this advice really resonated with us. Receiving her first Eucharist was a special spiritual milestone for Iyla. I’m grateful that we were able to honor the significance of the sacrament in ways that were meaningful to her. This special day will be a treasured memory, I’m sure.
Here are a few snapshots from Iyla’s big day:
God is within her, she will not fall.
