A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

Update on Josiah Huckaby written by his mom, KK

Update: Josiah is doing really good. They put him on the home vent Friday, and it’s the one we have been requesting. He’s doing great with it! They are going to start a very very slow wean of his steroids. The goal is to get back down to a dose that they know he has done well with. Cardiology came by while I was there Tuesday. His echo that was done last Thursday showed his pulmonary hypertension pressures were stable & pretty much the same as his April echo. So now we are looking at weaning off 1 of his pulmonary hypertension meds. Thanks for the continued prayer. God is so good!!!

 

 

Update on Joanne Seymour written by a friend, Charlotte Bryant

Hi my family and Facebook friends, a much better update on Joanne for today. She and I talked on the phone and she sounded great and said she was feeling much better. Becky (her sister) is staying with her and taking great care of her. They both seemed as if they are having fun in the big Apple. Please continue Joanne in your prayers, they are definitely being felt and we all appreciate them. Thanks

Kenneth Birth continues to deal with back pain.  Pray it eases up some.

“Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God — truly righteous and holy. So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body” (Ephesians 4:21-25 NLT, second edition)

“Wherever He Leads, I’ll Go”
