the 23rd

Please pray & intercede for Solomon Edilu this week. Pray for favor from the judge that she would see fit that Solomon is eligible for adoption. His first court hearing is Monday the 23rd, and we're praying, hoping, trusting, & believing that his case would be in the 50% that passes the first time. We received about 15 new pictures of Solomon today & he's definitely growing, looking happy & well taken care of. Definitely a breath of fresh air amidst the business! Please also pray for some potential paperwork hangups regarding renewals, moving, etc.

Also fitting during this time is the 23rd Psalm (The Message):
"God, my shepherd!
I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

Even when the way goes through
Death Valley,
I'm not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.

You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.

Your beauty & love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life."
