You alone are the Lord.
You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars.
You made the earth and the seas and everything in them.
You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

  37. What a wonderful party this is. Very inspirational!

  38. Thank you so much for participating in the donations today. It means the world to those struggling with this disease.

  39. This is a wonderful way to help people, and it only seems to be growing. This is one of those stories that show that somethings good can come out of bad circumstances.

  40. This is such an inspiring story, and it's wonderful to be helping for the next miracle makeover. ::Jill

  41. What a beautiful blessing! To see how we, God's Children, pull together and lift one another up...this is priceless ♥

  42. What an encouraging Miracle blog party! And what great bedroom decor ideas from Kelee to help others, including the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents, to create special havens of encouragement for those in our family who may be ill. Now I'm looking forward to reading more party posts. Thanks for another delightful Spiritual Sunday. :)

  43. Thank you for being a partner in the Miracle Makeover. What a wonderful way to minister to Colette while she recuperates from chemotherapy. I am a contributor, and very glad to have the opportunity to play a small part in this project. I have blogged about this and added my blog to your list. I hope this will bring many more people to show they care.

  44. Wow, this is such a powerful gift of synergy and blessings!
    Isn't it grand to feel a part of something positive and uplifting - vs. the unrest and hatred that the media feeds upon?

  46. OMG,,,I had forgot to leave a note last night when I added my regular blog...Oooops,, so sorry Ladies.. I am soooo Happy to be here for the Miracle events...
    Thanks Charlotte and Ginger ..
    Sunday Blessings

  47. Hi Sweetie...
    I just had to pop over and continue our journey along in this miracle weekend makeover. I am so thrilled to be playing a small part in this event and knowing that we can help the next makeover out there just waiting to happen.

    Colette is such a beautiful woman and she is so happy in her new room. It is definitely a healing room with all her colors.

    I am in the process of helping her set up a blog so that she too, can talk to people and share her journey as she moves along this path that God is guiding her on. We'll make sure you have the link when we get a post up and you can pop over and surprise her. I know she would be thrilled.

    What a wonderful weekend this has been.

    Many hugs and so much love sweet friend. Love, Sherry

  48. I just got my post up!! It is wonderful to hear that Colette has recovered!! That's what hope can do!


  49. Hi ladies, Blessed Sunday to you both..what an uplifting story about colette and her journey..I am happy to leave a comment!

  50. Lovely idea, thanks for providing such a great service!

    Sharing an inspirational music video on my post along with the ongoing prayer list. If anyone has needs of prayers, feel free to link it up! The power of prayer makes MIRACLES happen! ((HUGS))

  51. I like your new Linky tool. It is much easier to use.

  52. I'm here to help others in similar situations like Collette. May God Bless all who have a hand in this wonderful Miracle Party also may his healing hand be upon everyone who is touched by the design angel.
    The Tattered Tassel

  53. There was so much to be inspired by - the design work with all the special touches, the genuine love that was being shared, many hands making the load light, Collette's faith for her miracle. But something grabbed my attention and I jotted it down when Kelee said it, "The beauty that's around us." That describes all of the above perfectly.

  54. I am so glad that I found you ladies via Miss Weezer!! Y'all are such a blessing to others!

  55. I just linked to Spiritual Sundays - hope I did it right. I'm new to blogging and this is my first adventure in linking. Also installed your "widget" on my sight.

    Please stop by if you have a chance.

    Blessings for all you do.

  56. Kelee certainly performed some magic, and made Colette's room a real sanctuary! Bless you for being a part of the Miracle Makeover!

  57. Praise God for this miracle as He continues to bless Colette and all who have been touched by her and her life. It makes your heart sing!

    Hugs and Blessings,

  58. Thank you Charlotte and Ginger.
    Happy Spiritual Sunday everyone.
