I lost my post this morning. Even Jason cannot find it, so here I go again. This will be in an abbreviated form.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
~Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV)~

I read about making masks to supplement the current short supply. Jennie made/is making some to share with her neighbors. Now, Julie is joining the project. If you have supplies, you may want to make some to share. The patterns are available online.
- 19th -And in the blink of an eye…we are back in the hospital!
We went for an appointment in Memphis today & he started having some respiratory trouble. They went ahead & sent us home from clinic but told us to come back to the ER if he got worse. Half way home he got really flushed looking & was having more trouble. We checked his temp & it was 104.6 so we turned around & came back to the ER. I always have Tylenol with us so we gave that & by the time we got back to Memphis his temp was down to 101.9 and was at 100.5 about 2 hours ago. So far his X-ray shows pneumonia in his left lung, they have started antibiotics, & they are running some tests to determine if he has a bacterial or viral infection. We are still in the ER but hopefully we will be in a room soon.
To God be the glory! Job Huckaby
- 20th -Update: We have had several people asking if Josiah was tested for COVID-19. Due to the new hospital protocols for admission to the PICU, he did fall under the guidelines for testing. His test came back negative this afternoon. Praise the Lord! His FLU/RSV tests came back negative, as well as the respiratory viral panel they ran. They also swapped him to a hospital vent last night for 2 purposes: due to the new protocols in place & so they could better control adjusting his settings throughout the night. They were able to put him back on his home vent this evening. He’s still requiring a lot of oxygen but they have been able to keep all his other settings at our home levels. He also hasn’t had a fever since last night.
Thank y’all so much for praying for our family! To God be the glory!!! ❤️ Job Huckaby
This morning I saw photos of the Samaritan’s Purse portable hospital I told you about. It reminded me of the good work some organizations do. Feel free to support them.
I told you about singing The Doxology while washing your hands to make sure you are washing long enough.
This morning, in making a comment to a FB friend, I used the phrase, “in times like this”. That led me to my second song for today – “In Times Like This”.
As I was working on this I was reminded of another favorite – “One Day at a Time” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEtKfyvTHig&list=PLwLMaSuIV0XGegRiJLFmqPZPuzc9Vd1Hh&index=23
As I reflected on the last few days, I was reminded to friends who called or dropped food off at the house (porch only) – “Make Me a Blessing” – You never know what a blessing you are to others. A phone call from you may be the only voice some people hear today other than the voices on the television.
Here’s my song list for today. I hope you sing along.
- “The Doxology” (Remember to add the “Amen” at the end.)
- “In Times Like These”
- “One Day at a Time”
- “Make Me a Blessing”
God is still in control. He loves us. He has us in His hands – another song for tomorrow.
Think of God and others. Don’t have a pity party! We are all in this! Support and encourage one another!
