Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live
Psalm 63

Lord, help us to believe this.
In times of deepest doubt and sadness
Let us beleive that your steadfast love
is better than life,
help our lips to praise your name.
When we are more aware of our suffering than our salvation
Help us to fix our eyes on calvary .

Please pray that Ian would speak to us soon.

Larissa, Steve and Mary ,
It was great having Ian over on Sunday to spend some time with Matt and Cyndi. I enjoyed the time with Ian. Larissa I'll never forget the care you expressed to Cyndi that day and your friendship. I was talking and praying for Ian in the van while you were saying goodbye to Cyndi. I was able to see you through the window your eyes tightly closed as you hugged Cyndi. In the same way though you and the Murphy's may be crushed in spirit from time to time, Our dear Lord and Savior, Comforter ,Healer,The Beginning and End, The Prince of Peace, The Friend of all friends is holding Ian, you and the Murphys tightly, as never before. He has not forgotten the many prayers and tears and supplications made on Ian's behalf. In the natural it would be discouraging when the pace of healing or recovery is not going as we would hope. But, in an instant, beyound anyones understanding, something could click, Ian could be touched supernaturally by Jesus who is the same yesterday , today and forever!

I would encourage you and the Murphy family to stay the course, surge on, press on do not lose hope.
Love and praying for ian
the holuta family

Psalm 34
15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their cry; ---
17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;
