Stellan, A Charming Kid

You may have noticed the new button at the top of my blog. A few months ago, I started following MckMama's blog at My Charming Kids. When I checked in a few days ago, I was saddened to see that their young son Stellan was recently hospitalized with an errant pathway in his heart.

Stellan's full story is over at My Charming Kids and you can even snag the code for a Stellan button. Yes, your very own :)

My heart is so heavy for this sweet mama. She is sagging with weariness, yet her faith never wavers. Let us, together, call out to the The Lord who watches over all who love Him. On behalf of Stellan and his family.

Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

Thousands Protest Global Warming

Here at the prairie cottage, the weather continues to trend towards being colder for an even greater part of the year. Miserable. I grow weary of listening to all the talk about global warming.

But then I saw this photo and realized I am not the only one. At last.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend...have a blessed day at church tomorrow!

wherein I met my neighbor...

I have been reading the posts over at Hey look, a chicken. Katdish cracks me up!

So, anyway she challenged us all to meet our neighbor...our blog neighbor, that is, and leave them a little comment encouragement. You can read Katdish's full post here, but this is the condensed version: If you have a blogger account go to the top of your page and click "Next Blog." Presto chango- meet your "neighbor." You can do it every day and have a new neighbor each time. You are allowed to skip a blog if it's in another language or too "freaky-deeky" for you, as Katdish says :)

The day I tried it, my neighbor was Southern Jewel's Princess Diaries. Mercy. This little girl could not be more precious! She's 10. She's doing a blog for homeschool to practice her writing skills. On that day she was introducing her family and friends and her post was filled with all manner of cuteness.

After all the pictures and descriptions she writes this: My favorite friend is God. Wow! Not only is the child completely adorable, she can bring it. A serious Good Word from Southern Jewel Princess.

So try meeting your blog neighbor. You might just be blessed...I sure was!

happy birthday, Cody

Cody and Nolan.
My son-in-law is turning 25 today. In Iraq. So very far from his wife and babies. Their sacrifice is hardest on special days. Like today.

Cody, as we celebrate today with you, we pray God's blessings for you today and every day, as you grow in His faith and love in the works he has prepared for you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the right to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier who solutes the flag, serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag. -- Author Unknown

Won't you please leave a comment with a birthday thought or prayer for Cody?

And please remember Megan, Nolan Ryan, and Skyleigh Claire in your's kinda hard on them when their favorite soldier is away.
