Urgent Prayer Request

Lynn and I have resumed A Joyful Heart auction blog
to spotlight one family each month
that is raising funds to adopt their precious child.

This month we felt led to support
our sweet friend Daleea who is waiting to travel for

On Friday we received word that Daleea's husband Jeremy
was in an accident at work.
He has second and third degree burns
over 12% of his body with the greatest concern
being the chemical burn in his lungs.
They have been told he will be in the burn unit
for months.

They are in desperate need of your prayers!
It is so much for Daleea to process with sweet Isabella
coming home in the next few months.
This makes their adoption expenses even more difficult
but know completely that God is in control.

It is in that light that I ask you to take a look
at the items we have up for auction
and see if there is something you would like to bid on.
If not, please pray about clicking on their Chip In button
to make a donation~
no amount is too small.
God will take any amount and multiply for His glory!!!

I pray you will be found faithful in stepping out
spiritually through prayer
and financially through a bid or donation.

Colossians 1:9 NIV

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.


  1. Sharon...I am on the phone with Daleea right now. I just read this to her and she is SOOOOOO grateful. She feels your prayers. It IS helping! Thank you!!!!!!

    Love and blessings,

  2. Sharon, for some reason Chipin is trying to charge a shipping and handling charge of me and I can't get it to reset. Can you email an address for me to send a small donation?

    If my email address doesn't show up with my post, let me know.


  3. Oh my goodness! I am praying! Is there more I can do????? I will email you when I get home today. Oh sweet Daleea...Lord hold her right now...

  4. My heart and prayers go out to them! We are in a VERY bad place financially or I would so help, but I can pray.

    PRAYING for a MIRACLE for Jeremiah!

  5. Ok...I SO signed in as my husband earlier...that is teh post from Doug. I'm emailing you now!
