Monday 5/24

Hello Friends and Family!
Well we received some great news today! God is so good! A huge panel of doctors(20) met this morning to decide if Dave has to have surgery on his shoulder and.....he does not!! Praise God! They believe his shoulder blade will heal well without surgery.

A physical therapist and occupational therapist came to visit Dave today. We can't say that Dave just loved this part of the day but they did have him sitting on the side of his bed. All progress is good! Thank you Lord!

PRAYER REQUEST: We interviewed with TrustPoint (the best rehab hospital in Lubbock) to try to get Dave admitted there when he is released from UMC. They should be making a decision within the next day or so and we will let you know. Please pray he gets approved to go to TrustPoint. Prayer is a channel that God has provided so that we can reach heaven and see the things of heaven done on earth.

Proverbs 4:20-22 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don't lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.

ENCOURAGEMENT: It's time to be strong and of great courage! In every trial or battle courage and faith are needed in a big way. To live in courage we require encouragement. Thank you for all of your encouragement when you come to see Dave and when you encourage him on this blog. It means the world. Encouragement is eternal!

  1. We are praying Dave will be admitted to Trustpoint and are glad to hear about him sitting on the side of the bed. God is good.
    J.R. & Vickie

  2. I have been praying for Dave throughout the day since I received the news.
    Dave has been nothing short of an angel for our family and particularly Grandma Betty since we lost Grandpa. I am so thankful for the blessing that he is to so many and the ACTIVE light and love of Christ he displays through his service to others.

  3. It was so great to see the pictures on the blog and Dave sitting on the side of the bed as J.R. said. Dave, Ginnie, Sean, Trace and Belinda we are praying for you all throughout the day. You all have been such an influence in our lives and we pray for strength for each day. Brent & Pam

  4. "I am leaving you with a gift -- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world can not give. So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:27

  5. Not an hour goes by that we don't think of you and lift you up. As Lauren has said, you have been an angel to mom and our family over the last 3 years. You and Ginny are a beacon of light in our eyes both then and now. We pray strength, encouragement, endurance and peace for you this day. We love you.
    Laura & family

  6. Dave & Ginny,

    You do not know us, but your daughter and her family are some of our favorite people in the world. Our whole family is praying for God's miraculous, healing hand to come upon you in such a way that once complete healing has happened (which we are believing in faith will happen), that people will not have a choice but to give God the glory! Stay strong in Him, and we will continue to pray without ceasing!

    In Him,

    Kim & Ray Don Wideman (Austin, Hunter, and Hope)
