It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.
A wedding song.
1 My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.
2 You are the most excellent of men
and your lips have been anointed with grace,
since God has blessed you forever.
3 Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
4 In your majesty ride forth victoriously
in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
5 Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
let the nations fall beneath your feet.
6 Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.
8 All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
from palaces adorned with ivory
the music of the strings makes you glad.
9 Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.
10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,
people of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
her virgin companions follow her—
those brought to be with her.
15 Led in with joy and gladness,
they enter the palace of the king.
16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
you will make them princes throughout the land.
17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.
Praise for Kare’s celebration.
Prayer for family relationships.
May God be glorified in our words and actions.

Hazel’s family is headed back to the US as soon as COVID clears the household.
Turns out her father had a similar condition as a child–whatever it is and it’s none of my business anyway–and Hazel needs to get into therapy ASAP or will live with a damaged hip.
Thanks for prayers.

Praying for Hazel and her family…and trusting the Lord to bring them through as they faithfully look to Him. Thanks for sharing their journey with us as it is a blessing to cover them in prayer
I received an “updated” report this morning from the hospital. There were areas that need to be watched and are probably benign thus the need for another ultrasound in 6 months. So it goes. I haven’t heard from my doctor concerning her take on it all yet. And I will just say Aleve takes the edge off of the pain!

Thank you, on behalf of Hazel’s family. Mom Kim made a FB video to explain all–and it’s far more complicated than the above, both health-wise and family security-wise.
Still, they’re headed home to her mom’s house to live on Tuesday and have already started arranging doctor’s appointments.
HR paperwork stalled. No saving, husband’s job dematerialized and they’re totally bewildered. What could God be doing?
