We've been praying more frequently and fervently around here, too. Our friends have a 3-week old little boy, named Forrest, who is in the ICU. He is battling a long list of complications from an infection he developed at birth. Take a minute to pray for them, please. They so desire and covet these prayers.
So in following little Forrest's set-backs and successes, we've immersed ourselves in some comforting words from our Father. Here are my current favorite words:
The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
I love to be reminded of who my guide is, who provides for me, who strengthens me, who quenches my thirst, who creates a garden in me, who refreshes me. What is your favorite comfort verse?
And, in closing, a very cute picture of my sweet nephew Ian. He's smiling at a taggie ball that I made for him!
