Oh, the other night I asked for prayer that Seth would go from "strength to strength," thinking that was from Psalm 82; it's actually from Psalm 84, vs. 7: "they will go from strength to strength until each appears before God in Zion." Earlier verses say, "What joy for those whose strength comes from the LORD . . . When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings." [I think of the eastern side of the U.S. as I read this, rain did not seem at all a blessing to them!]
Anyway, the song "Strength Will Rise" keeps playing at really key times on the radio and tonight was played at our church's "Trunk or Treat" Fall Carnival. Such a good reminder of such a simple yet difficult truth from Isaiah 40:31. I need His strength, especially with David at home. THANK YOU GOD, for your faithfulness in sending volunteers and everything we need!
Here's a couple of cute pictures of Seth to lighten the mood. :) God is good, all the time.

Please keep Gracie in your prayers, too, as she needed to go back on the higher flow cannula due to increased oxygen need again. Her little lungs need to heal; thankfully she can continue to bottle feed a couple of feedings per day. Will and Marcie are still only finishing 2-3 bottles of the 8 they need to be able to take before they can go home, but otherwise they are thriving!
Love and gratitude to Him and to you,
