Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127:3
Once again, as I share with family and friends the incredible ways the Lord blesses us, I must focus on how our Father has blessed our children.
Rebekah is engaged! Our oldest is marrying Tim, an amazing gentleman who has experienced God’s grace in a life-transforming way. They love their Savior dearly, and that love has drawn them together for a lifetime of love and service to our King. God is good!
Victoria begins her student teaching soon in the music department of a neighboring community. She also teaches voice lessons in a local music center. She is in a relationship with a terrific young man, Noah.
Maria begins her first year of college in a few weeks and will be rooming with her best friend, Elizabeth. Arkansas Tech University, watch out!
Please pray for our girls to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus and to continue to love and serve Him faithfully all of their lives.
Also pray for Leah, who continues to battle physical issues. She experiences constant pain and exhaustion, but shines the light of Christ every day! Pray that she will have the health and strength to be part of wedding plans and all the other wonderful things that our girls are experiencing.
Many have asked about my own health. I am struggling with neuropathy, which started some time ago in my feet, but is now spreading up to my knees. I am not able to drive very well as a result. My balance is off, and I occasionally stumble or fall. My hands experience pain and numbness, which makes writing and turning the pages of my Bible difficult. I sometimes drop things, including Leah’s serving bowl and platter – sorry, Sweetie!
I am under the care of four great doctors who are trying to figure things out. My neurologist recently tripled my medication, which seems to be helping a little. Many more tests are in my immediate future. I have been off of work since July 1st. Please pray for God’s provision with no paychecks and many medical bills. And please pray I will glorify God through it all!
We so love and appreciate our many friends who faithfully pray for us and encourage us in a multitude of ways. Please contact us with your own prayer needs and praises. May God bless you with His presence and peace!
