Praying For Deepening

We were devastated. He wouldn't even spend more than 15 minutes with us, including holidays and even after DH's knee replacement, he left overnight when he was supposed to stay with me. It was layers and layers of hurt.
God has healed all of that and our son began to turn around a year ago, especially after getting away from that girl and her friends. He met another with a stronger faith and they married in April. We wish they would have waited longer, but, you know, they are adults,he is 21 now.
They are trying to find their way as they make faith their own and not just the faith of their parents. KWIM? They both want to go to the next mission trip and I think that would be fantastic for the both of them. Missions changes the one who goes more than the ones they are sent to. He might recall his early years on the field with us, and realize the wonder of what we had and what he can have in his life. He has a hard time believing in his worth, which makes me sad. He has always had a quality of goodness in him. Want him to see that.
So prayers for favor in their jobs as right now our DIL is being told she will be fired if she goes. And CJ needs a better job that will allow this and part time college courses. And that the faith deepens as they exercise it! Thanks for listening!

"But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
and they prosper in all they do."
Keep us posted...
