Stellan's Name Gallery

As you all know by now, one of my favorite blogs is My Charming Kids, and in a way I feel like I "know" MckMama:)

And you, of course, have seen my requests for you all to join me in prayer for baby Stellan.

He still needs our prayers, friends.

To read up on his story (Yes, he has a story!), click here. Stellan is a miracle baby! MckMama and her husband, Prince Charming, were told when he was in the womb that he would surely die, but our great God had different plans for this precious boy! While in the womb he struggled with numerous things heart-related, including what he is now battling, but when he was born (which was a miracle in and of itself) he was completely healed! Unbelievable, right? Not if you believe who our God says He is, not if you believe he still performs miracles, or that he is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present! This family's journey of faith was strengthened through that trial and they came through it more mature, having drawn closer to God. And now they are in the midst of another such trial, still fully trusting that our God has not changed, that He still has a plan for baby Stellan, and that Stellan is STILL, in fact, a miracle! But also praying for healing for their baby boy. God wants us to pray for one another, to share each others burdens, pray for our hearts desire, for his will, and trust Him that he will work all things together for HIS good. So, my fellow bloggers, I urge you to get on your knees. To ask for healing, for peace, for wisdom, for comfort as we wait and see what the Lord will do. Let's storm heavens gates for this beautiful little boy who already has touched so many lives and who God has already used, along with his parents, to show God's love and to bring our Father glory.

Back before Stellan was born completely healthy, a name gallery was begun. MckMama loves photos and she loves names, so what better way for people to show they cared and were praying then to give her photos of Stellan's name? And this gallery has been reborn! If you would like to show this family that you are praying you can email pictures of Stellan's name to or visit Knowing Norrah's to add the link of your post that shows off his name!

A praise song that I know keeps coming to mind everytime I think about Stellan and it seems so fitting...

I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

Hi Cathy,
Thanks for your comments - I'm finally back at blogging (until the next Twilight book is ready for me at the library!) Ha!Ha!
I just got all caught up on your blog - I love the pictures - esp the Guacamole pic and the fort pictures! I also have checked on Stellan - thanks for posting about him - I will be praying - and thinking of some clever way to photo his name.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend! It is REALLY cold here - blizzard conditions are predicted!

Beautiful pics on her blog. The one of the African women holding the paper with Stellan's name on it made me cry.
