This week our wonderful creator of Not Me Monday, MckMama, is back in the hospital with her sweet baby boy Stellan who is fighting for his life. For more details you can click on his picture. So NMM is in honor of Stellan this week! Natalie is hosting this for us if you want to join in.
I've not prayed more times throughout the day than I can recall doing in a long time this week! I did not have my children and my husband and my Bible study group pray for Stellan too!
While repeatedly getting frustrated at things this week, I've not then stopped to think how insignificant our small problems are and instead stopped and offered God up thanksgiving for my blessings and prayers for Stellan!
I did not have my husband ask why I was so upset and crying several times this week to tell him about two little boys I've never met. One of course was Stellan! The other was Garett, a sweet little boy who lost his battle with brain cancer this week!
I've not refreshed MckMama's blog a gazillion times this week to check on Stellan! At the same time I don't want to tell MckMama to not feel like she has to keep us up to date, but to focus on what she needs to. And of course I'm not holding my breath waiting to hear more news about Stellan!
I do NOT feel like Stellan has brought me closer to God this week! I've not decided that I should also pray for the hearts of all of the readers of MckMama's blog!
I didn't tell God that healing Stellan here on earth would be best for everyone, because that would be presuming to know God's will!
I'm not going to put my baby down for a nap, open up my Bible and go plead some more for Stellan's heart to be healed!
