Praying for MckMama and Baby Stellan

*Update: Baby Stellan was born at 10:19 this morning. He weighed 6lbs 10 oz. At this time, they can find absolutely nothing wrong with him!

Many of you may have noticed the button over to the right of my blog with an adorable family that says "Praying for MckMama and Baby Stellan".

If you haven't clicked on it and read their story, you have missed an enormous blessing and testimony of faith and the power of prayer. I committed back at the beginning of August to pray for this family everyday.

Here is a small description of the background for MckMama and Baby Stellan written on another blog that has set up a prayer vigil for today:

Mck Mama is a wonderful Jesus loving mommy to three kids, ages 3, 2, and 1. Tomorrow she will be delivering her fourth! Here's a quote from her blog about this special little guy: "He [Stellan] was quite unexpectedly given to us, and even more unexpected was his diagnosis of heart failure: Premature Atrial Contraction at 20 weeks; Supraventricular Tachycardia, hydrops, and intermittent advanced secondary heart block at 23 weeks; and enlargement of the heart at 32 weeks. We were told at 24 weeks that he would surely die. God performed a miracle and MckMuffin is still with us! The doctors are unsure about what will happen to our baby when he is born. But God is not unsure!! We are praying for MckMuffin's full healing, but we know that God is good no matter what He decides."

Today, October 29 at 9:30 am, baby Stellan will be born.

There are literally thousands of people all over the country, and yes, world that are praying for this family today. I would like to ask you, my friends and family to pray for this family as well. Pray for them to be filled with peace, not anxiety as they prepare to have Stellan. Pray for the many doctors and nurses that will be on hand to attend to MckMama and baby Stellan. And, finally, pray for the complete healing of baby Stellan.

Again, if you haven't clicked on the button on the side, please do so. You may need a little time, because you will be hooked. MckMama is one of the funniest, engaging, faithful, God-loving women I've encountered in a long time. It has been such a testament to her that so much glory to God has come out of such a difficult situation.

I hope everyone has a great day - we are heading to take MiMi out to lunch for her 80th birthday. I'll post some pics later.
