6/14 Update

Friends and family,
What an awesome weekend Dave and Ginnie had!! Dave got to leave the hospital for 4 hours on Sunday! A local church in Lubbock offered their brand new wheel chair accessible bus to take Dave wherever he wanted to go! Wow! Just another case of the Body of Christ functioning as one. We can never forget that we are all part of one body and it is so awesome to see believers loving believers.

Dave and Ginnie continue to meditate on Philippians chapter 4. The entire chapter is written to encourage and Dave and Ginnie are so encouraged as they meditate on this. Dave said he is continually praying the scriptures. This is so awesome. When we pray scripture over our lives, situations, challenges, and even tragedy, we are praying God's will and God's desires. And I can tell you that God's will and desires are always GOOD.

That reminds me, we asked Dave if there was anything specific he wanted to be on the blog and he had 2 words: Goodness and Faithfulness. Dave cried as he told us how moment by moment he is amazed at God's goodness and faithfulness. Wow. That's how good our God is! Dave has been through a lot of tough days and weeks and God continually shows and reveals His goodness and faithfulness!! Praise God!! God is ALWAYS GOOD!

We had a conversation this weekend about how sometimes in life we can't control what happens to us. But....We can ALWAYS control how we respond and react to what what happens to us. Daves response to this accident has been to RUN to God. And God is responding by showing His goodness and faithfulness!! Isn't our God awesome?!?!

Thank you for continuing to pray. Your prayers do not ever fall on deaf ears. God hears our prayers and always answers with both, GOODNESS AND FAITHFULNESS!

Dave and Ginnie are so thankful for visiting and praying for them.

I added a pic to the front page of Dave and "Buddy", they hadn't seen each other for 3 weeks and it was an awesome reunion!!

Thank you!!


  1. Dave & Ginnie....just want you to know that we continue to love you and lift you to God and are so grateful to Him for all His blessings and for what He has shown you both throughout this whole process. You're a wonderful inspiration and we thank you.

  2. Dave and Ginnie - I love the words, "Run to God". Thank you for being faithful in a dark night of the soul. God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think. What a shelter, what protection the Father gives to us his precious chilren. You are beloved and "the family" of God celebrate you for your courage to keeping on going. Today, I tell you, from my heart I love you! Paulette

  3. Dave & Ginnie, we are praying Phil.4 for you also. I am sure you and "Buddy" had a great reunion. We are looking so forward to seeing you on Monday. Brent & Pam
