Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

This One Is For Me!

Saturday morning I got up way too early and left the house before daylight to get to Mrs. Shirley's Antique House.  Today is the day the Ladies Guild at Rock Mills is having a yard/bake/craft sale and all proceeds are going to Magen and Keaton for the babies.  They are one month old! 
We serve an awesome God!  The customers were slow to begin with....but once they started coming it was a mad house.  I put two pictures on the front door of the house.  One said:  Benefit Yard Sale for Kash and Kruze McCarley.  The other sign showed one of the babies and it said:  This yard sale is for ME!  We had a donation jug set up in case people didn't want to buy anything they could still leave us a little something. 

When it started I figured we would raise somewhere around 8 to 9 hundred dollars if....and the key word is "if" we were lucky.  One of our church men told us we "might" make five hundred dollars.  I cried a good bit during the day as I witnessed people's love and generosity.  When Mrs. Shirley and I totaled up our handiwork for the day we had raised right at 1300.00!  Magens post on Facebook:  Prayers for Kash and Kruze McCarley asked for continued prayers.  She is such an amazing woman.  Her outlook is amazing.  Her update was this:
"Hello!! Sorry my update is so late.... Jett(their one year old son) had been running me today!! 
First of all, we want to thank everyone that donated to our girls today at the Hwy 22 yard sale, we appreciate it and will never find enough words to express how thankful we are for you guys! We love y'all!  Moving along... We took Jett to the zoo today, he seemed to like it. Kruze is still just moving along, not causing much trouble. the results of her echo shows that her vessel had gotten smaller.... Great news! Kash has had a little bit of a rough day. They are doing a repeat cranial on her this week, if the bleed has grown more, we will be meeting with neurosurgeons. The repeat echo came back that her vessel was unchanged, so they had to start her on a medication to help close it.... They will do 3 rounds, then a repeat echo if is still unchanged they will repeat the 3 doses and do another repeat..... If still unchanged, they will talk about closing it surgically. Today Kash had to have another x ray of her belly bc it looked distended. Her belly was fine, but they noticed that the top of her femur and hip bone look eroded. They think this is from the infection she had.... So they are checking again for infection, to make sure she doesn't have any infection of the bone. They just came to do move x rays of her legs, depending in the results.... We may be meeting with a bone doctor..... Say a few extra prayers for Kash tonight..... They gave her morphine earlier, her heart rate was really high, and she was acting like she was in pain.... Thanks for your continued support, love, and prayers!!! Love from Birmingham!"  As I close out my post tonight....I humbly ask that you please pray for Kash and Kruze.  They have fought to be a month old.  They now weigh in at a whopping 1 pound 8 ounces and 1 pound 7 ounces.  That is a feat in itself.  Many people never live to see an actual miracle take place and I am fortunate to watch this one unfold before my very eyes.  Goodnight little ladies and yes,this one was for you!
