There is a little girl and her family who need our help. They need all the prayers and positive thoughts we can offer - please visit www.prayforkate.com for more information.
As I prepared to send my own daughters off to school today my thoughts went out to the McRae family. To be blessed with healthy and happy children is one of the greatest gifts I have been given. I cannot ever begin to imagine putting myself in their shoes. I do know how hard it was as my Dad fought his cancer, so I can never imagine what it is like to fight that fight with my child.
There are three very special ladies doing something special for Kate and her family. Jennifer McGuire, Jana Millen and Kristina Proffitt have organized "Cards for Kate" and I want to join in, and hope to brighten this family's day and give them courage, by sending a card for both Kate and her parents.
As I thought about this adorable little girl, I wanted to create something that would bring a smile to her beautiful, sunny face.
I thought this cute little Panda could present her with a bouquet of flowers...
and some special stamped hugs. My hope and prayer is that sweet, little Kate will soon be healthy, happy and running around enjoying life; that she will soon be sent off to school!
Creating something for the parents was so much harder for me. What do you say to someone enduring such incredible stress? When things are not right with my children I just wish that I could take their place and yet we all know that this is impossible. I turned to this stamp because as I read through this verse, it reminded me again to believe, to have faith and courage. I want these parents who are complete strangers to know that there are many out here in cyberville who are sending our positive thoughts and prayers, in faith that their daughter will soon be healthy once more.
So each day I will think positive thoughts as I send a prayer for Kate. I hope you will join in this mission of encouragement. Inside I shared a verse from Scripture Essentials in hopes of giving this family courage in the long days yet to come. Head over to Jennifer's blog for the full details!
