Not Me! Monday ~ Stellan Style


Natalie has given us yet another outlet to let MckMama know exactly how much she and her family are loved and are in our thoughts and prayers with her Not Me! Monday ~ Stellan Style.

I have not told everyone I know about Stellan's story, and then explain why he needs prayer so urgently right now.

I did not keep MckMama's website up on my computer at work all week last week, refreshing like mad to find out anything new she had to say.

I did not update my facebook status constantly to state that I am "praying for stellan" and then give MckMama's blog address for anyone who wants to know about this little miracle.

I did not sign up for a Twitter account, only so I could follow MckMama's updates about Stellan over the weekend on my cell phone while I was away from my computer.

My husband does not think I am insane because I feel like I have such a connection to people I have never met.

I did not sit in an awesome worship service Sunday at church, and cry out for Stellan's healing while worshiping our wonderful Saviour.

I did not see little Stellan's face in my mind as the worship team sang Mighty to Save, the words "Shine you light and let the whole world see, we're singing for the Glory of the Risen King" didn't make me realize that Stellan's light IS shining, and giving Glory to God in the midst of all this pain.

I did not find this verse completely appropriate for the MckFamily ~ Isaiah 40:11, NLT

"He will feed His flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in His arms, holding them close to His heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young."

Stellan, has not consumed all of my thoughts and most of my prayers for the past week.

I found your blog from the comment you left on MckMama's. As a fellow Mississippian, your comment stuck out.
I also, sent the same verse (Isaiah 40:11) to MckMama last week. I immediately thought of her when I read it several days ago.
I then went to your blog and saw your "NOT ME MONDAY" post. I promise you Girl, I could've written that myself. I can barely get any work done for thinking and praying for Stellan & MckMama. My heart goes out to the entire family.

I was just reading your "NOT ME MONDAY" and Girl, I could've written that my self. I can barely get any work done for constantly checking MckMama's blog and stopping to pray for Stellan.
My heart goes out to the entire family.

It's funny, I also joined Twitter ONLY so that I could get updates on my phone.
Continuing to pray in Brandon, MS.
