Up in one day

In one day, eight guys from the church put up the frame of our addition along with the roof and the tar paper. Pretty incredible. Stuff is happening so fast with this that I can't keep up. Thank you all for all your kindness!

I saw Ian today. It was good to see him getting therapy instead of being treated for the wound on his back.

We still don't really know the cause of the nastiness in his mouth. I don't want to describe what I saw a couple days ago. Apparently, it's not the yeast that was there before, nor is it the other bacteria that plagued his other wounds. Please pray that they figure out what it is or that it just goes away.

At this point (as I understand it), other than his mouth there are no medical issues preventing therapy, so he's getting a full dose of it now. Please pray for a continued healing of his brain injury. Pray that he would recognize us more. Pray that he would respond to the therapists' commands consistently. Pray that he would make some more significant strides in his recovery. Pray that he could begin to eat solid foods. Pray for Ian.

Dear Friend, I am sitting in a peaceful room on the 7th floor of Hershey Medical center with my preciuos sleeping Alivia.Her mom stepped out of the room to do a few things.Before she left we read your entry for today and prayed specifically for your requests. Steve , I am encouraged by your entrees and appreciate all of your honesty and humility. Although I am uncertain about our outcomes I am certain of God's faithfulness, mercy, goodness,kindness and love. More now than ever before. I am looking forward to the day when Alivia and Ian are healed and you and I can get together and laugh,cry and be amaxed at all God has done.Stay strong in your faith for God will never leave you or forsake you. Your Friend, Dave

Psalm 34:
8Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
10The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

11Come, O children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12What man is there who desires life
and loves many days, that he may see good?
13Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
14Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous
and his ears toward their cry.
16The face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the LORD delivers him out of them all.
20He keeps all his bones;
not one of them is broken.
21Affliction will slay the wicked,
and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22The LORD redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
