"The fig trees might not bud. The vines might not produce grapes. The olive crop might fail. The fields might not produce any food. There might not be any sheep in the pens. There might not be any cattle in the barns.'
"But I will still be glad because of what the LORD has done. God my Savior fills me with joy.'
"The LORD and King gives me strength. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer. He helps me walk on the highest places." (Habakkuk 3:17-19)
A mix of thoughts and emotions whirl inside us, and God's words are the comfort for our tangled hearts.
Thank you for the sweet aroma of prayer that has lifted to God on behalf of Katie, Christopher, and the rest of our family. That, alone, has been enough to swell my heart with joy. God has had immense pleasure in seeing so many draw together in complete surrender to His desire.
Jenny will provide many details very soon, but I will catch you up on all that you have been praying for:
First, the judge heard our case and postponed his decision until next Tuesday (March 25). Things seemed to go well.
Second, Katie's health continues to concern us. Each day she seems a little weaker and uncomfortable. We are not sure the reasons for all of this. However, Jenny took her to the doctors, and her blood test was not normal on several counts.
Third, we are continuing to worship God for who He is. Whether they are all able to return to Montana sooner or not, He will continue to be worthy of all of our adoration.
"I am the LORD. I do not change." (Mal. 3:6)
Our most urgent concern has become Katie. She is not well at all. It is breaking a daddy's heart to have his little girl suffer, and be helpless to do anything about it. However, Jenny will continue to be a terrific mommy, and shower her with love and care.
"Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being certain of what we do not see. That is what the people of long ago were praised for. '
"We have faith. ..." (Heb. 11:1-2)
