Little Ones To Him Belong Wednesday

Thank you for joining us for Little Ones To Him Belong Wednesday!

A few months ago, as I was reading through blogs, I was so touched by so many blog families who have gone through or are currently going through such heartwrenching major life-threatening medical conditions with their child.  I also realized that so many families have a special angel baby waiting for them in Heaven playing with precious Layla Grace.

I was more amazed to find that there are families that have two or more precious little ones in heaven waiting for them ~ then I read how one mother pictured her two children holding hands playing with the other children and Jesus.  What a wonderful way for a mother to have perspective of such difficult loss.

I noticed on these blogs that some families and parents of these special children had many, many followers and some had just a few, I thought that I would try to bring support to all of these families in hopes that we can share and pray for all of God’s Little Children for healing and we can pray for those families who have lost their precious child or children.

If you know of a family or you are one of these families that are in need of prayers, please leave your link and if possible, please leave your twitter, facebook, blog link in a comment after linking up so that we can follow your journey and pray for you.

Please stop by and visit these families and offer your prayers and support.

I thought that we could start to do this each week on Wednesday so that we can continue to pray and remember those families that need our support and also to add any new children or families that might need lifting up in prayer.

Remember, as God’s children, there are no age requirements or age limit for this. 

We would be grateful if you would share our new button and post it on your blog. Thank you, Java of Never Growing Old for creating it for us! We would love for many people to stop and visit and lend these families support and prayers.

Also, if you are praying for a child in particular and you have a button posted on your site that you do not see here, please send it to me so that I can include it and place it on our site!

Spotlight on A Meal in the Mail Ministry

Name: In the blogging world I go by “Big Fat Mama,” because this is what my son would always call me when I was pregnant with my 4th child.
Email Address: bigfatmama@satx.rr.com
Website Address: http://www.cookingupfaith.com/

When did you begin this ministry?
I started A Meal in the Mail just a month ago.

What inspired you to start this ministry?
I actually was going to quit blogging, because I didn’t think it had enough purpose. I felt like God was calling me to go out and help feed the hungry, help the sick, welcome strangers. And then I remembered this scripture: He has given you the whole world to use, and life and even death are your servants. He has given you all of the present and all of the future. All are yours, and you belong to Christ, and Christ is God’s. 1 Corinthians 3:22,23. I then knew that even my blog could be used to help serve others. I decided to feature families going through a personal trial and encourage readers to send them a meal in the mail through a restaurant/fast food/Visa or American Express gift card.

How many people help you with this ministry?
A lot of people have helped me with this ministry by getting the word out and doing posts just like this one to let others know about it.

What has been your most sweetest moment?
The sweetest moment for me has been the families who are featured telling me what a blessing it is for them and how much it means to them.

What do you find most difficult in running this ministry?
The most difficult part in running A Meal in the Mail is reading and hearing about so many families going through such hard times. It breaks my heart. How do you get past that? I get past that by reading and remembering Isaiah 61, which says we have been appointed to comfort all who mourn.

What is your greatest need right now for this ministry?
People with a heart to give to come and see the families who are featured, pick them up a gift card, and mail it to the family.

Where do you see this ministry in five years?
God willing still helping families going through hard times with meals in the mail and allowing an avenue to connect people who have a heart to give to others in need with families who are in need.

How is a family able to be featured?
Any family who is going through a difficult trial in their lives, such as an illness, financial loss, loss of a loved one, ect can be featured. The family in need or a friend of a family in need just needs to e-mail me about their story.

What is your favorite inspirational quote?
I actually can’t think of any quotes that come to mind at the moment, so how about a favorite scripture? The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love. Psalm 147:11

Is there anything else that you think our readers should know about?
Just that A Meal in the Mail Ministry is very simple. If you’re a family who is going through a difficult trial please share your story with me, and allow me to feature your family on my site. If you are a person who wants to give to others but you don’t always know who to give to, please visit the families featured on my site and pray for them and consider sending them a gift card – A Meal in the Mail!
