PLEASE PRAY FOR BELLA

bellaBella’s going back to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital to begin a new chemo treatment – and we’re all praying for healing – thank you for joining us in prayer for this sweet brave soldier.  ❤

Precious Lord,

We know You love us.  Jesus is our Good Shepherd and encourages the children to come to Him.  He carries these little lambs in His loving arms and gently cares for ones who are afraid and weak.  It’s so difficult to watch Bella go through this and not be able to do anything to help – but Lord, we can and will pray for this sweet baby as she goes back to St. Jude to begin a new kind of treatment.  We pray that You will intervene and give her a complete healing – as only You can.  We will be careful to give YOU the glory for this good news.  Please carry Bella through the chemo with minimal discomfort, Lord.  Please tend to her as only YOU can.

We lift Bella up to You and ask for Your healing power to permeate her frail body and return her to complete health and strength.  Please surround her with Your angels and protect her from further danger.

Lord, You love the little children and You hear and answer our prayers on her behalf.  Keep this sweet lamb wrapped in Your arms and resting on Your bosom.  Restore Bella back to full health, we pray.  We thank You in advance for what You will do and praise You for You alone are worthy of our praise!

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Aren’t we thankful we can talk to Dr. Jesus on behalf of our friends and family?

My God is going to heal me.  – Bella

Thank you, Amber, for sharing this too cute pic of Bella on facebook!  I’m going to print her photo and put it in my purse so I’ll be reminded to pray often for her.  🙂

EAT ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST

TL 2-18 EAT ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFASTICE CREAM FOR BREAKFASTWhat is your favorite flavor???  Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate – or maybe all three – NEAPOLITAN!  I am eating a bowl of low-fat, no sugar added mint chocolate chip from my local Braum’s store.  Oh, it’s good!   While eating ice cream for breakfast is such a great idea, the most important part of this is WHY I’m eating ice cream for breakfast – and why you should too…

I invite you to click on the link below to find out more about this great holiday – and it would be a great idea to contribute to a children’s hospital such as St. Jude’s today – and give in honor of one of the children they are helping there.

In the comments below, let me know what flavor ice cream you are having for breakfast this morning – and who you’re eating it in honor of.

My special little person is Bella.  Her daddy is a minister here in Wichita.  My friend attends their church and reports that the whole church is praying in faith and trusting in our Lord to heal this little girl…  she’s a precious and brave little soldier she has so much faith!

Sometimes her counts will be down so she’ll come to church wearing a mask with her hands raised up high praising the Lord she’s such an inspiration to us all.   – Denna Bowmaker

Bella was diagnosed at 18 months old with a brain tumor.  They did surgery when she was 22 months old to take as much of the tumor out as they safely could.  Since the tumor is attached to the optic nerve, the entire tumor could not be removed surgically.  She’s gone through several rounds of chemo in her young life.  At times the tumor stops growing.  Unfortunately, it’s currently growing so she is going back to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Tennessee for more chemotherapy.

Recently the enzyme levels in her liver were elevated so they had to stop chemo.  Once they get the levels back to normal they resume treatment.

Her church family is constantly lifting her to God in prayer.  They even wear shirts!  Isn’t that great?12439263_1092000810831817_1893896791231558060_nThe photo is dark – but it says, FIGHT AGAINST BRAIN CANCER BECAUSE I NEED BELLA IN MY LIFE – SUPPORTING BELLA’S BATTLE.

Please visit BELLA’S BATTLE on facebook!  There are photos and updates from Bella’s parents.  Above all, please join your prayers with ours – because our God is the GREAT PHYSICIAN!

As I enjoy ice cream, I’m thinking of her, praying for her and hoping that God will touch this sweet six-year-old and heal her.  She’s so brave and has such BIG faith!

May God richly bless you as you bless these little ones.  We overlook so many blessings and take for granted that which many of these children would appreciate so much.  The health we enjoy (although yes as we get older we creak and pop) is what these children would consider a miracle in their lives.  Do you have a child who is in good health?  Give thanks and make a donation to St. Jude to help those families who are concentrating on regaining good health for their child.  🙂
