prayer with a gift raiser

First of all, I'd like to ask for prayer for my little boy. He burned his hand this weekend on the church's pellet stove. I think all the time that it should have some type of fence around it and well, now I feel even stronger about that, but accidents happen, I'm not mad, but I think it's better to be safe than wish we would have been b/c although Gage's hand is not severe, it could have been much much worse. So, we are thankful that it is not worse, and would just like prayer for healing and comfort for Gage. We took him to the ER where they did some things and wrapped his hand and now we have to go in to his pediatrician to have her check it out and rewrap it later today. The picture is of Gage sleeping in the ER with the first wrap on his hand with a gel that numbed his hand. They gave him some good medicine which knocked him right out. It was kinda nice since he would have just been upset and this way he slept through the wrappings! I'm praying that it looks good today and any infections stay far away. The dr. said it would heal up nice as long as he didn't get an infection. He is doing so good with the bandage on. He definately wants it off, but I can't believe how well he's doing with it on.

So, I've been meaning to get a post up about a give away thing my friend, Amanda, over at is, here it finally is! She found this nurse who goes over to Haiti and helps the children. Amanda donated some cloth diapers to her to take over when she leaves next. After that Amanda felt this little tug on her heart from God to try and bless this nurse with more donations! So, she is looking for anyone else who wants to join in by blessing this lady with these donations. Here are some things she is in need of: cloth diapers(I'd think regular ones would be fine as well, but check with Amanda on her site to make sure), vitamins for infants and/or children, peanut butter, and formula were some things on the small list the nurse gave to Amanda. Amanda also thought about shipping costs and thought you could email her personally about gift cards for Amanda to go do the shopping so you wouldn't have to pay to ship the items. Please pray about this and if you feel led head over to proudmommyof4 and make your donation!
Amanda has asked for her 'followers' to post about this on her blog to get the word out, so please feel free to post about this on your blog to help get the word out as well!
And there is more...Amanda thought she'd make this fun by having a little 'prize' involved! Here is what you need to do to get your name in for the prize:
1.)Let Amanda know that you wrote up a post about this(1 entry)
2.)Donate to the cause(2 entries)
So, here is what you could just possibly win...

It is a devotional book for couples!
Here is what had to say about it:
Ladies are tired of trying to engage their man in something he is reluctant to do... like devotional time. Guys are feeling like the term "devotional" is code for "boring". Plus, husbands and wives have different views on what intimacy is all about.

For those who are wondering if they're living more with their "roommate" than their "soulmate," then this devotional can help them meet on common ground and discover each other in new ways. Men won't even need an alarm clock to wake them when "devotional time" is finished!

Filled with insights from a real couple on real issues, Songs in the Key of Solomon will get spouses laughing, thinking, sharing, touching, and praying possibly all during the same reading. Each offering in this devotional is designed to spark connections around issues that matter, so couples deepen their emotional, spiritual, and physical unity and ignite new levels of intimacy. (One devotional even involves a bathtub and some candles!)

Here is an invitation to discover the music in marriage maybe for the first time... or maybe once again.

Now doesn't that just intrigue you to run out and go get it?! Well, before you do see if you can win it for free first! Free is always better!
Amanda has been doing this devotional with her husband and got Nathan and I one just a few weeks ago. The first week we just read the intro and then decided that one day a week we would do the devotional together. Well, my husband is always willing to do anything with me, but I have to admit that sometimes I feel like it's me 'wanting' to and him just being the sweetie he is and doing it with me. Well, after reading just the intro, this is what I came home to the night that we were to do our first devotional..., I think this time around my husband is pretty excited to be doing this devotional together and not just me! Maybe it has something to do with the title, "In the the Mood!"

I will pray for you baby boy. I need to get back over to Amanda. Thanks for the reminder. Hope his hand is better soon.
