FaceBook Page for Before His Throne

New Page on FaceBook

Hi to all of our loyal "Before His Throne" prayer blog followers!

So sorry I've been sporadic about updating the prayer blog. Having a one year old and a firstgrader (along with a full time job) has not been easy! And, I know with Debbi's CF and Melanie's newborn and husband who has been deployed, it's not been easy on them either.

We have been praying :) And, remember, the Lord does not forget you. If we've missed posting your requests or your praises, the Lord has remembered many times over.

Please note that we will not abandon this blog but for now, We will mostly be posting requests as we can on FaceBook.

If you are not on FaceBook, don't worry. As I said, we will not stop posting here, but I did want to let you know where you can find us on FB.

We are on the Page: In Prayer; Before His Throne or you can click on the link below:

I just wanted to remind you also to rejoice in the Lord always - He Has Risen! Not only did Christ die for our sins but he LOVES us and cherishes us. We have a true friend in Jesus.

Love to you all,
Amanda

Please be careful...

A while back I posted about a fundraiser for Lauren & Lillian from a company called L.R. Beary Fundraising. Well, come to find out, that was a scam. So far, by the grace of God, WE have not been scammed, but Shanna Marsh (via The Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation), mommy to Layla Grace who passed away from Neuroblastoma on March 9, 2010, is currently being scammed by the woman who is portraying herself as the owner of the bears AND the VP of The Layla Grace Foundation while she actually is not. If you are on FaceBook and are not currently a "fan" of The Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation, you can be and can keep up with the news and events (not only surrounding this mess) but how you can help the Foundation now or in the future.

I wanted you to know that not only am I very sorry that I promoted this fundraiser, but I hope that no one bought any bears. Lauren never received any funds from this fundraiser so we are not sure if that is because no one bought bears or because of the scam. Also, I wanted you to pray for The Marsh Family as they still grieve their young daughter's death and have to deal with this scam artist.

Neuroblastoma is one of the few cancer types known to secrete hormones. It occurs most often in children, and it is the third most common cancer that occurs in children. Approximately 7.5% of the childhood cancers diagnosed in 2001 were neuroblastomas, affecting one in 80,000 to 100,000 children in the United States. Close to 50% of cases of neuroblastoma occur in children younger than two years old. The disease is sometimes present at birth, but is usually not noticed until later. By the time the disease is diagnosed, it has often spread to the lymph nodes, liver, lungs, bones, or bone marrow. Approximately one-third of neuroblastomas start in the adrenal glands.

If you are in the Cy-Fair area near Houston, TX this Sunday, The Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation is having its first big fundraising event. Help make a difference in a child's life.

Thank you!
