Updates

Grandpa is home now! His hip replacement surgery went well. Now the hard part--recovery. Thanks for your continued prayers.

My sign language skit went well also! It turned out so neat. It was the story of two girls seeing the miracles of Jesus. One of them (my character) was skeptical, and found the preaching to be exceedingly boring. But at the very end, when Jesus walked up, alive, right in the middle of a conversation about His death, my character recognized His Godhood. As the time for Jesus’ “approach” grew near, my skit partner would get a twinkle in her eye. The end was a goosebump moment every single time we did it.

On the other hand, my novel isn’t going quite as well. I got a chapter written today, but I’m not terribly happy with it. The story just isn’t flowing. Normally when I’m writing a story all I have to do is guide the words a bit as they tumble out. This is feeling more like I have to extract each word.

Please pray for me that either the story would start flowing, or that I would know now is not the right time for this project.

Praise God for your grandpa! Glad to hear he's at home.

With the novel thing, I felt that way with the novel idea I just dropped. Hopefully this new one will flow much easier and I'll be praying yours either "flows or goes" ;)

I'm glad the skit went well. Sorry the story isn't coming easily; but sometimes the things that are the hardest work end up being the best. You can e-mail it to me if you want me to take a peek.
