UPDATE on Uncle Jeff: Janelle talked to him today, and he’s in good spirits. The doctor says he’ll be able to fix his face (it took 2 hours to stitch him up yesterday). He got a 10-point buck the day before, and Janelle said he was pretty pumped about that. God knew what would get him through. Please keep praying!
And for anyone who was feeling bitter about me and my brilliant potty-er, she peed in her panties a little while ago and pooed in them just now. Rome wasn’t built in a day, eh?
I hate to be the Girl Who Spoke Too Soon, but my goodness, potty-training is going swimmingly. Two days ago, Nina went on the potty a couple times, then peed her pants twice. Yesterday, she went on the potty about 8 times and peed her pants zero.
This morning she went on the potty a couple times, then I left her with Gabe to take Liv and Ave to the bus stop. I’m a few houses from being back home when I see Gabe on the front porch frantically waving his arms at me. Emergency? What’s going on? I start running, get inside, and he points me to the living room. Nude-bottomed Nina is standing by her potty beaming. At her poo. (her first time) We danced and sang and jumped a lot.
So, we’ll see. For now, I’m (cautiously) optimistic.
Thanks for praying for my grandma. They’re keeping her at the hospital until they get test results. She was really dehydrated, so they took care of that. She’s a spunky one, so I’m praying she makes it through this latest ordeal unscathed.
Good news from my friend Amanda. The steroid shots they gave her helped get her blood levels back where they’re supposed to be. Doc said if she goes into labor, they won’t try to stop it. And she should be able to deliver at her own hospital (not go to C-bus). Her hubby Nathan has just 400 more acres to harvest (?) and he’s good to go. Thanks for praying!!
Another prayer request. I just got an e-mail this morning from Gabe’s mom. Rock’s brother Jeff (Gabe’s uncle) fell off a ladder at work yesterday and a conduit pipe fell with him. He cut his face open from eye to lip. That’s all I know right now. Please pray for God’s hand of protection and healing on him! He’s one of our favorite uncles. (not that we wouldn’t pray just as hard if he wasn’t)
I just finished my Bible study homework for A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place. Wow. I’ve read through my Bible several times since I was a kid, and I’ve never liked reading about the tabernacle. I have a whole new perspective on it now, and my heart is swelling with gratitude and amazement and excitement. I long for a deeper intimacy with the Lord, and I’m so thankful to Beth Moore for listening to the Holy Spirit, writing this study, and letting God speak through her words. I’m falling more deeply in love with my Savior, and it’s a beautiful thing.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my cute, sweet friends!! xoxoxo!
