UPDATE: There is an offer -- the price is reasonable, but they want help w/closing costs, which would make our end of it be too much. Counteroffer is the same price, w/them paying closing costs. Continued prayers appreciated.

Prayer Requests

If you'd be so kind as to add prayers for my friend Jonathan and his wife, Whitney; they've just delivered their first child, Lydia Grace, via C-Section yesterday, and she (Lydia) is in ICU due to respiratory failure. Pray to the Lord, to St. John the Evangelist and Theologian (whose memory we on the New Calendar commemorate today), and St. Lydia for the deliverance of this family.

In other news, our good friends Daniel and Mary, who've recently lost their child James, are now grieving the loss of Daniel's mother, Susan, who reposed unexpectedly on Tuesday. Please pray for their family and for the repose of the soul of the handmaiden of God, Susan.

Lord, have mercy on us. Let our funeral lamentation be "Alleluia." Glory to God for all things.

Thanks Be To God for Things Such as These...

From my daughter's mouth (and heart) this evening, following evening prayers:
The Lord is my Shepherd,
He always loves me,
He takes care of me
In the storm, again...

And then when you die
He will wake you up again
If He comes again
And He walks on the water
When His disciples couldn't.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
And He loves me so best,
Yes, He loves me soooo...
