You may remember me talking about Praying for Stellan here in November. He was supposed to die in the womb at 23 weeks with a terrible heart condition, but through the fervent prayer of thousands of blog-reading Christians, God performed a miracle and gave MckMama her precious baby boy back. He was born full-term without ANY heart problems...or so we thought. Stellan is now 3 months old and is TERRIBLY sick in the hospital. He has Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) and his heartrate remains in the mid to upper 200s. I have joined a prayer vigil and will be praying for Stellan exclusively from 5:00a.m. to 6:00a.m. tomorrow morning. Yes, this means I will have to get up early to pray, but can you give me a better reason to stay in bed? I didn't think so. Please pray for this precious little boy and that the Lord will have HIS way in this situation. I don't want anything that God doesn't want and I want ONLY God's will in God's time for this precious little boy. However, I am going to pray that God's will is to heal him completely. Additionally, my prayer will be that God will continue to be with his mother and father, and their 3 other children.

And now the AFTER:
First of all, yes our chairs to our pub table are on the table - we just swept and mopped our kitchen. Our kitchen is painted yellow/gold (although it turned out more yellow than gold and I'll probably be changing it soon) and is decorated in the French Chef theme. B/W Check and Red/White Check accents.
I spray painted the chandelier itself with black high-gloss spray paint and bought 5 plain lampshades. I then got red/white grosgrain ribbon and hot glued it onto the seams of the lampshades. I cut out little black flowers and hot-glued those onto the ribbon. Then, I used a gold sharpie and put some simple decoration on each lampshade. Finally, I hot-glued the crystals to the inside. I'm not completely thrilled, but I don't hate it either and it's certainly better than what we had! This'll do until we get all of our bills paid off and can buy a new one!
