Praying for Bentley...and So Should You!

Over to the right of my blog you will see a button "Praying For Bentley". She is this wonderful, sweet, beautiful, STRONG, loving girl (who I have not had the chance to meet) but know she is all those things and more! Her mom and I have become "blogger friends" (I would like to think). As I am typing, this sweet girl is going through open heart surgery. This could last up to 6 hours. Bentley needs ALL the prayer and thoughts right now, that anyone could give. As do her parents, siblings, grandparents, & friends of the family. No child or parent should have to go through this. God does have a reason for it and we may never know, but we've got to trust in Him. I know (from reading) that Crystal (the mom) has a very strong faith. I pray she will not forget that and can stay strong (as hard is that may be at a time like this)
As I sit at work today, I can not stop thinking of Bentley, Crystal, and Ryan (the dad). I've teared up a few time just praying. I cry when I go over to Crystal's blog to check for updates, but I KNOW with all my HEART that Bentley is going to be okay. She have tons of prays going her way!! I trust that God will take care of this beautiful girl.

Thanks for sharing their story. I will be praying for her too! I can only hope that my faith would be that strong after enduring such heartache.

You are such a sweetheart! Now that we are in the hotel..when Bentley naps there is absolutely nothing to do.. I am finally catching up on blogging. I have been reading all comments and emails, but finally get to respond!

Thank you so much for your support and prayers. I cannot even tell you how much it means to me.. we may not know each other personally but support is suport and I hold that near to my heart. So thank you for everything. Now I have to go catch up on your cutie and her precious smile!
