* “Not Me Monday” special edition …

Posted on March 30th, 2009 by melinda in "Not Me Monday"

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to see what everybody else is not doing.

I seriously considered not doing “Not Me Monday” this week, simply because I know Mckmama won’t be hosting it on her blog … she has far more important issues going on right now. But then I thought, what better way to keep her precious son in the minds and prayers of so many. So this week, I am going to write my “Not Me Monday” just because sometimes normalcy is good and comforting … it won’t get read by lots of people, I won’t meet any new bloggers by posting it but what I will do is continue with something I enjoy in honor of a beautiful little boy who is desperately fighting for his life as I type and a family who is hanging on with all they have at this very moment.

This week I absolutely did not get down on my knee’s and pray outloud to God that His will be done concerning Stellan’s health. Even if His will is not our will for this child. And to give him and his family the strength, endurance and grace to weather this storm. (I am thinking Isaiah 41:10)

I in no way broke a personal blog rule and asked my reader’s to go check on him and consider praying for him and his family also, I didn’t do that because I simply never have before. (James 5:16)

I have not shed a tear for a child I don’t know nor will probably never meet, simply because his mother’s writing touches my heart. (Psalm 88)

I didn’t receive phone calls or inquiries from real life friends concerning Stellan’s current status, that may have meant some of you responded to my request. (Luke 9:48)

My heart did not beat a tad easier or a tad harder with each up and down post from Jennifer this week, with each twitter or update … (Matthew 11: 28-30)

And I am most certainly not going to sign off of this computer, grab my Bible and go pray over some verses that I chose earlier this week to specifically pray for Stellan and his family. (Matthew 6: 6-13)

And I absolutely won’t ask you just once more to consider praying for this little guy. If you don’t believe in prayer, then just simply right his name down and look at it during the day … maybe that will make it substantial to you. (John 14: 13-14)

And you should by no means go check out his photonamegallery on mckmama’s blog. It will not inspire you one bit so don’t bother.

    Wow. . . I just spent the better part of 3 hours (verrry slow nite @ work) reading months worth of MckMama’s blog. What a beautiful & powerful & ongoing testimony she has!! I feel like I know – & in turn, love – this family! I am praying that Stellan & the whole Mckfamily find peace in whatever happens. Thanks, Melinda, for sharing their story. Luv ya!!
