Mommy Blogging Makes for Fast Friends and Miracles!
For those of you who show up here sometime during your busy day, you know us as the Miracle Trio...Dawn, Mimi and myself...friends pulling out all the stops to help make a miracle happen for Mimi's dear little Julian! (if this is your first visit to my blog, please read the last two posts) I don't think I have shared with all of you HOW I have come to be blessed with these lovely two women whom I have referred to quite often on my blog as "friends." This is what makes this story even more of a STORY! Dawn, Mimi and I have never laid eyes on one another except through photos sent via the internet or when Dawn (the show-off - just kidding) was on ABC WORLD NEWS TONIGHT. We have built our friendship, created a spiritual support system, and shared much laughter and tears through blogging, Without the internet we would never have met. Welcome to the 21st century of MommyNetworking. What a blessing! But because of this just-by-chance meeting, we have been feverishly drumming up support through worldwide prayer, an auction and PayPal (see donation button on this page) to make this Christmas the BEST ever for little Juju who has been struggling this last year with Medullablastoma. I have been completely HUMBLED by the outpouring of love, prayers, and giving from thousands of people WORLDWIDE! I have even had people tell me that they have contacted Oprah to fill her in on our plight for Julian. We are now praying for a Christmas Miracle...and through the help of many other Mommy bloggers who are spreading the word with links to my blog and with the idea from Mommy blogger, Shellie, we are calling for a WORLD WIDE FAST! Wednesday is the last day of our auction on ebay and we will all be fasting and praying for Juju's miraculous recovery! A reader told me to look up Mark 9 in the Bible so I wanted to share it with you... Passage Mark 9:20-29: 20So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. 21Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered. 22"It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us." 23" 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes." 24Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" 25When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again." 26The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, "He's dead." 27But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. 28After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?" 29He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer ad fasting." Isn't he worth it?! Do you think you could give SOMETHING UP on Wednesday to "fast" for Julian? Fasting can be dangerous for some people with certain health conditions so please use your best judgement. Our church encourages people who want to fast but cannot/shouldn't/ don't want to give up food to fast dessert, TV, technology or anything else that would be a sacrifice. When you feel "hunger" for food or otherwise...PRAY FOR JUJU! FAST FOR A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!! and leave a comment that you are "in" so we can track HOW MANY people are with us!
