Prayer Polish

We are so blessed to have a huge network of people who love and support Lorelei.  When word of her cancer first came out, many people would ask her "What can I do?  How can I help?  What do you need?"

People really wanted to do something tangible for Lorelei.  (But you can only eat so much chicken casserole.)  What Lorelei really needed was peace of mind.  She desired prayer.   So, to bridge that gap and give a tangible thing that people could bring to her, she asked her friends to bring her a bottle of nail polish.

Yes, nail polish.  A very worldly thing to symbolize a very spiritual thing.

Lorelei explained that she intended to label every bottle of polish given to her with the name of the person who gave it.  Then, she would paint each of her 20 nails (both hands and feet) with a different color.  It would be a physical reminder to Lorelei of the many people who were covering her in prayer.  And it would give Lorelei the opportunity to return the favor.  Each day she prays for the people whose polish she wears.  Lorelei knows that getting outside of herself and praying for others is probably the most healing thing she could do.  It certainly keeps her eyes off of her own problems and onto Jesus.

Plus, being the girly girl that she is, she's been none too disappointed to have to paint her nails daily!  And keeping polish on them keeps her feeling pretty, even as she loses her hair.

So, that's the origin of Prayer Polish.

So far she has 259 bottles.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're
working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
