EDIT (7:50am): HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY!! to my darling sister Stephanie!! Please go wish her a happy, snappy day!! I love you and miss you, Stephi!!
I e-mailed Jenny’s MIL (she’s in my Bible study small group) to tell her you guys were praying for Jenny and her dad. She just sent me this encouraging update:
Her dad had surgery again today but is looking better than he has! They hope to be able to sew up his incision tomorrow which has been open since Monday to facilitate repeated surgeries. I guess that is a very good sign. They won’t operate on his pelvic bone, leg, or arm breaks until at least next week after he has regained some strength. Jenny and Keith plan to return Sunday to go back to work on Monday if he continues to improve!
Praise the Lord! Sounds like he’s going to make it! Please keep praying for his recovery and salvation!
Gabe and I took the girls to the Metro Gardens tonight. Fun, fun! The flowers are blooming and beautiful! Gabe got some great pics. (His camera is a Nikon D50, Jess. They don’t make them anymore, but Gabe said the D60 is the most similar to ours.) He thinks he’s going to record a podcast here in a bit, but I’m hoping to convince him to get some of the pics ready for me to post instead.
I got some cool news from Harvest House today. Diapers has sold 4,050 copies already. I think I told you it needed to sell 5,500 to go to a 2nd printing (and get Nichole’s name spelled right!). It’s only been out 2 months, so I’m super encouraged. To put it in perspective, Is That All? has been out for 16 months and has sold 6,700 copies. Blushing never got to 4,000. 🙂 So, it looks like my goal of 10,000 in 2008 is do-able (Lord willing). Thanks for praying, for spreading the word, and just for being sweet in general.
Has anyone seen Expelled (the new Ben Stein movie about creationism)? Gabe went to see it in Michigan while I was doing Pillow Talk. He said it was absolutely incredible and that every Christian needs to see it. We’ll probably go watch it on our next Date Night.
That’s it for now. This was just supposed to be a quick update on Jenny’s dad. Have a great night!
