Please Pray ..... When Love is most definitely a Verb .....

This is Love as a Verb at its finest my dear blog readers.

I have a very special prayer request.

A month ago my stepson took our precious grandson - Sir Cuteness - to the doctor for a recheck on his iron levels and the doctor thought he heard a heart murmur. This was new to us, because it had never been heard before. So they had us make an appointment for a recheck of that which was today.

So Sir Cuteness and I headed out to the doctor this afternoon, because mommy and daddy were working. We got there and the nurse came in and his pulse-ox was a little low and then the doctor came in and listened to his heart while Sir Cuteness was in several different positions: lying down, sitting straight up, sitting a little bent over etc., and said he could still hear something in the top part of his heart, so he is sending him to a Cardiologist. I asked him what could cause the low pulse-ox and he said it could be a virus, but could also be his heart. He also found an enlarged lymph node on the back of his head, which is actually visible without even touching to feel it.

Would LOVE AND APPRECIATE your prayers, for the player of these toys .....

And the reader of this Bible............ OH how I love him!!!!! .....

And the wearer of this Superman Hat .....

Together with his Uncle KoKo.....


We would SO appreciate your prayers for our sweet little dude. They will be setting us up with a Pediatric Cardiologist (so hard to type) within the next 10 days.

Thank you for loving us so much to pray for our Sir Cuteness!!!!! (His name is Skylar =)

My friends, love never looks better than it does when we pray for each other.

Romans 12:9-13 (NIV)

Love in Action

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.


  1. Sidney had a large VSD & was in NICU for a long time. We saw a pediatric cardiologist every week for several years. They told us she would require open heart surgery (that she probably wouldn't survive) but God healed that little heart of hers the week before her surgery was scheduled. We had to continue to see the pediatric cardiologist until she was 5 but got released when she turned 5. We have walked this road, we know the feelings/emotions it creates and we know how to pray specifically for you & your family and especially Sir Cuteness. Please keep us updated and know we are covering you all and the medical staff he will be seeing with lots of prayers.

  2. praying for sir cuteness my friend! you can count on it!

  3. Dawn,

    Oh how we are in sync today. My nephew is being possibly diagnosed with undetected congestive heart failure at 18 after having back surgery today to correct his curve in his spine. We are praying even now that things will turn out fine and God will heal this. I hold Sir Cuteness in the promises of Jeremiah 29:11 and pray that all goes well and things turn out perfectly.

  4. OH my goodness friend... I know this has to have your anxiety on its edge... what a precious boy he is to you & I know you dont want anything ever to happen to him. I'll most definitely lift him up... have all the kids at our weekend retreat pray for him as well!!!!

    I know most child's hearts can "Grow out of it" of many heart conditions so praying this is one of them. I also was found to have a heart murmur & later, a Mitral Valve Prolapse that still to this day has "flair ups" - but its managable & not dangerous... so praying this is something that is also managable & not causing any danger to this adorable little bundle of love...

    Keep me updated... remember God is in control!!!!!!!

  5. I will most definitely be praying for all of you. Emma went through something similar which turned out to be nothing. I know it's scary. Praying ...

  6. I will be praying. Always frightening when it involves our grands so I'll be prayingn you have peace, too.

  7. Praying for Sky. I know you'll keep us posted.
