honoring kayleigh

i started following kayleigh freeman's blog when she was only a few months old. adam and aimee became part of my daily prayers and i just loved that little girl! so when they did the "give 4 kayleigh" drive, we were soooo in. i sent in a few things for aimee to be pampered and made a few donations for them as well. kayleigh at that point had been in the NICU 8 months...she was born 3 months premature...1lb 1oz! as a momma of a NICU baby, i just ached for the whole fam.
about a week later, i got an email saying i had won package 3...i really didn't even know i had entered to win anything when i donated, so i was certain it was a joke. turns out, it wasn't.
so now, this week, me and hubs {and brian and karen} are spending the week in the condo in sc that i won on "give 4 kayleigh"...and we wanted to honor a fabulous family, who simply tries to honor god in everything they do...even when kayleigh got her wings a few months ago, and continues to still!

we aren't great skilled artists...but miss kayleigh is known for her butterfly buzzing around. she's not let us down this week...god has worked in amazing ways to show us he is way bigger than we treat him...

brian is sand castle master...so he built us a little "in memory of kayleigh" right in the sand...
in the midst of honoring kayleigh, we were able to share the story of a wonderful little girl and her family a number of times with total strangers and passers by...and again, god was glorified. that sweet kayleigh, although only on earth for a few months, continues to bring god glory and spread love...because her family has continued to as well.
"faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we can not see." hebrews 11:1

may you all find rest and peace and continue to give god glory in all that he does...please go visit kayleigh's blog and pray for them...
