I recently spent time with my little friend, Ellia. She is Pastor Evan's youngest daughter. I was in the hallway at church when she and her mom popped out of Pastor Greg's office in a hurry.
Ellia, known for her quiet, fragile voice was shouting, "A bug!! I see a bug! I don't like bugs. Mommy, I don't like bugs!"
Crying, she came over to me and in her small, frightened voice she said, "Faye, I'm scared of bugs. We saw a spider. I don't like bugs."
"Aaaaahhhhhh!!!!" Ellia hurried into her daddy's office.
Mommy said, "I'm sorry. Ellia is very afraid of any kind of bugs. Even cute ones."
