In the midst of the congregation I will praise you

I will tell of your name to my brothers;
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you: 
You who fear the Lord, praise him! 
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him, 
and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel! 
For he has not despised or abhorred 
the affliction of the afflicted, 
and he has not hidden his face from him, 
but has heard, when he cried to him. 
(Psalm 22:22-24)

In case you haven’t seen the news on social media, let me tell you:

My children will not go blind.

Yes, they will still struggle with night blindness, which will have its impact, but that’s it.

They’ll still be able to see.

Thursday morning, I came downstairs to find Arianna and Justice working on a whiteboard stop-animation. Because they’re like that. And now, I know that blindness won’t take that away.

Thank you for your prayers.

From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will perform before those who fear him. 
The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; 
those who seek him shall praise the Lord! 
May your hearts live forever! (‭Psalm‬ ‭22‬:‭25-26‬)
