Operation Stellan's Bible

My sweet blogger friend Amanda who not only is now a famous Fox 9 TV baking "personality" is also a tender-hearted mother who thought of this great idea to send something special to sweet Stellan.

If you remember I asked you to pray for Stellan when he was in the hospital and very sick with a heart condition (SVT). If you have followed MckMama's blog you know the story of how God, with the help of some amazing doctors, healed Stellan's heart! Praise the Lord!!

Amanda recently wrote this post where she came up with the idea to send Stellan a bible with a favorite bible verse underlined just for him. But she wanted to share with others this loving act and invited readers to participate with her.

Today Stellan's bible was in my mailbox! It is a beautiful bible with really big margins for comments - how perfect! I was so excited to to underline a special verse. I would pray this verse for my children as well - it would be my hearts desire that my boys grow to be strong men of God who love Him with all that they have.

Luke 10:27 And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."

My prayer this year for myself, for my husband, my children and family and friends is that we be compelled to love God fervently, with everything that we have, everything that He gives us. Because without Him - none of this is possible anyways. I am so grateful to be able to pray for others and if you have a prayer request you would like to share - please leave me a comment and I will lift you up to the God that loves us.

I am so touched - what an awesome idea. I have followed MckMama's blog for a while now too - such an inspiration! And I love the verse you chose. Isn't that soooo what we want for our precious children? That's what I pray for every day.

I too have been following the MckMama's blog since you guided me to it and praise God for His grace in the lives of this family and for the miracle they have been given in healing Stellan's heart. I love the Bible verse and I too pray this every day. Thank you Kristin.

Hugs - Clare
