You all know that
you can generally
find a laugh,
or two,
a day on my blog...
or at least a smile.

I am foregoing the humor
because I want you
to pray for this
precious little child.
His name is Evan.
Isn't he beautiful?

I came across him as
I was visiting a blog yesterday.
I very seldom read other comments..
I just don't have time..
I saw a woman asking for
prayer for her 
five year old grandson.
He either has a serious
infection or leukemia
and they just don't know
what the outcome is
going to be this week.

As most of you know,
our little SweetCheeks is
five years old...
so this caught my attention...
and I followed the link
to Alleluiabelle's blog

Please go over HERE
 and offer up a word of 
and send up a prayer
for this precious 
little child of God.

I'll be back with
a smile for you
your photo name

Maria Elena said...

I will make sure to visit and say a prayer for this precious little boy.
I have been following the story of a little girl for months now also. This hits very close to home for me because eight years ago, I had a very sick child. Here is a link to her blog, in case you want to visit.
Sweet family and I am sure they will appreciate you prayers. Big hug!

Oh, I hate to hear that a child is sick. When I worked for a large pediatric practice for over ten years I had to see a precious family learn that their seven year old had leukemia. Definitely will remember this little fellow.

Diana, thank you for sharing this story! Much prayer- much power! Evan is on my prayer list! I taught kindergarten and this tears my heart out! It just doesn't seem right for precious children to suffer! I'll be praying for his recovery! Blessings, my friend!

Diana: It seems so sad that there seem to be so many tragic stories around these days. Maybe with all the technology we just hear about them more. My little nephew, one year old at the time, was diagnosed with leukemia. He is now 6 and doing fine. When they are that young it seems to be an easier cure. Little Evan will certainly be in my heart..Judy

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Thanks honey for sharing this I will of course pray for this precious little guy.

Janet said...

Take care my friend, Janet W

Ruth Kelly said...

With so many of praying, something should happen for Evan. Just getting a correct diagnosis should help so that he can be treated. I hope it is not leukemia.

Cristina Garay said...

Thank you Diana! So thoughtful of you! I've been in the same situation with my own son and lately the prayers of so many people have work miracles! Faith can move mountains and Evan is now in my prayers!

Beth Herring said...

I'm off to prayers and bed right now. My nephew got leukemia when he was about 5 and he's 25 now, praise God. I'll go visit her and hopefully can offer some encouraging words.

Donna said...

You are such a sweet heart for sharing this, Diana. I'm headed over right now. My dad died of leukemia, so whenever I hear of anyone that has it, it really tugs at my heart.
