This blog thing

There is something about this blog thing that creates community. I don't know. Maybe its our internal need for relationship. Maybe its an intrinsic signal that we are all equal in our longing for communication and need for love. I read about 20 blogs daily and then those of my girlfriends, whenever they post about new outings or recipes or ideas. I enjoy reading those decorating blogs. And of course there is that thing about blogging where the blogger gets to edit what you see on your computer. Most people wouldn't put pictures of their disastrous house on the Internet. And we always just take the pictures of what makes us look good or our home look perfect or our family outing where everyone is smiling right next to Mickey. But there is something about a blog post where a Momma pours her heart out, when she truly transparently shares her feelings out into the Blogosphere because right next to her is a baby in a hospital bed.

Recently I've been drawn in to those blogs with children in need of prayer.
Perhaps this is God's way of bringing me to my knees.
Maybe its His way of showing me to be thankful for what I have.
(Two superbly healthy lil guys.)
Maybe its His way of showing me that His people are loved.

MckMama posted this video on her blog yesterday. I cried my way through it and prayed for him extra big today. (Is there a such thing as an extra big prayer?) Please say a prayer for baby Stellan today and be sure to give your kid or a kid an extra hug.

Hello, I found your blog from a comment you left at Kelly's Korners. After reading your post I wanted to leave you a message. I follow MckMamma's blog too and am praying for baby Stellan. The reason your comment stood out to me on Kelly's blog is that my name is Mary Dunbar, a fellow "Lady Dunbar". I have been blessed with triplets, 2 boys and 1 girl. Just wanted to say hello. =)
