We do what we can financially to help.  We change our profile photo on facebook to a comic book hero to raise awareness.  We do what we can…  but the most important thing we can do is talk to our Father in Heaven on behalf of these little ones and their parents.

Loving Lord Jesus,

You were the One that said let the little children come unto me, and You placed Your hands on all – and blessed them.. I come to You today to ask that Your healing hand would touch the life of this little child, who has been diagnosed with cancer. Lord their little body is racked with pain and life has become so difficult, as the cancer is encroaching through their tiny frame. Be close to this little one I pray, and hold them close to Yourself. Lord, I ask that they may be healed and spared any from more pain. Be close to this little one each hour of the day, I pray. I lift up the parents, who are baffled by this disease and I ask for Your comfort and strength to uphold them as they seek to care for the little sick child. May they rest in You and be comforted and strengthened in this difficult time – and Lord, give them both the wisdom and skill to nurse their child back to full heath, I pray that they may the find their sufficiency and comfort in You, Whom to know is life eternal.  Thank You Lord Jesus, Amen.

What can my blog do for these sweet children?  I know there are some kids and their parents looking at this right now.  With help from my group, A Second Helping of Wellness…  with a Dash of Humor & a Pinch of Faith, we are giving you gifts of beauty, encouragement and hope.  We know that we can’t take the cancer away (how we wish we could), but we can bring a smile to your face or give you a moment of calm.

This post will be up from September 22nd through the end of the month.  Our group hopes you are encouraged and filled with renewed hope after you look through this post.  Grab your umbrella because a shower of HOPE is on its way!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  – Marcel Proust

Remember the story of David and Goliath?  David was just a little boy, but with God’s help he sure did kill the giant, didn’t he?

This photo from my friend Stephanie Guier Lutz put a big grin on my face!

NATIONAL COMIC BOOK DAY

TL 9-25 NATIONAL COMIC BOOK DAY

Have you ever wanted to put on your red cape and be a super hero???  Hmm…  I can’t think about that without thinking of Frankie Heck from the series “The Middle”.  The first time I saw that pilot episode, I literally rolled on the floor laughing when I heard her say, “I put on my SPANX and went!”  It’s just a pretty funny show!

Today is NATIONAL COMIC BOOK DAY!!!  If ever we needed some comic relief – it’s now!  What were the popular comic books when you were a kid?  My husband likes Hagar the Horrible.  I don’t think comic books are something that I just had to have as a kid, but once in a while I enjoyed reading a Super Man comic book.  There’s just something about a tall, strong man wearing a red cape!

If that red cape gave me supernatural powers, I’d wear it, wouldn’t you?  This world needs some super heroes for sure.  Who do your kids and grandkids look up to ?  There just are not any decent heroes out there these days.  We need some positive influences for the kids – desperately.

We see our government officials doing anything they want whether it’s legal or not – with no fear of being held accountable.  What does that teach the kids?  We don’t have to feel shame for doing wrong anymore because nobody will punish us for doing the wrong thing.  Wow – what a slippery slope!

The Bible clearly teaches the concept of right and wrong – good and bad.  Where are all the positive influences for children?

 God offers to every mind its choice between truth and repose. Take which you please — you can never have both.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Now more than ever it’s up to the family of kids to be the hero and wear the red cape – show the morals and values that matter and will teach children how to travel the high road in life.  We can no longer look outside our own gated community – well, unless we watch Veggie Tales or something.  Videos are the new comic books, right?

I think most parents enjoy wearing the red cape to escape reality once in a while – and that’s not a bad thing.  Your kids and grandkids need to see your super hero qualities once in a while.  😉
