The plague has hit our house - in the form of a nasty stomach virus that has both my boys hurting bad. I dressed casually for my nursemaid duties. And the camera broke so I had to have my sick hubs take pics on my phone. My eyes are closed in one and normally I would have whined politely asked him to take another, but he was already running to the bano and I didn't have the heart.

Shirt - thrifted
Bra - none (the advantage of no assets)
Shorts - Old Navy
Belt - friends give-away pile
Shoes - trusty Rainbows
Necklace - Acholi Beads
Dog - Butter, my 6 month old pup


Despite the gorgeous beach weather, and getting to be with my two favorite guys (even if they are sick), and all the fun of fashion week, my heart is burdened. Our pastor and his wife just discovered that their baby girl, Daisy Love (age 6) has another tumor. Just two months ago, after major surgery and chemo therapy, they cancer was announced GONE. The family, our church, and thousands of friends across the world rejoiced. But last night they found themselves back in the ER facing another grapefruit sized tumor.

We know the Lord is in control and they are trusting in Jesus. And I ask, if you believe in God and the mighty power of prayer, please lift up the Merrick family today. You can follow Daisy's journey here.
