Thanks again to all of you who have prayed for my recovery, or left words of encouragement for me. It’s been two days since I’ve needed a nitro pill. But that’s not all the good news I have to share. I’ve got two big reasons to smile.

First, I was picked to share the role of the curmudgeonly “Wilbur Hucks” on Brandilyn Collins new blog project, based on her soon to be released novel VIOLET DAWN.

SCENES & BEANS, is the name of the blog operated by the Java Joint coffee house in the fictional town of Kanner Lake, Idaho. Those of us fortunate enough to be picked to participate will write blog entries for our characters.

Wilbur Hucks is a curmudgeon like me, so it should prove to be a whole lot of fun. Thank you Brandilyn!

My second bit of good news comes from last Sunday’s 50th anniversary celebration at a church where I used to work. While I served there as youth pastor, I got to lead over 100 kids to Christ.

But my greatest joy was in leading a whole family to Jesus. The dad, now one of the church elders, gave his testimony. I was so blessed, and you will be too.

Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you all about it.

wow, so cool. Congrats David, on all counts. Hope you give us the link to the blog when it starts. It sounds like it will be great fun. Can't wait to hear more.

What a blessing to have led all those kids to Christ. That is awesome. Praise God.

Glory and honor and praises be to the Father on high for your healing and for the work He does through you.

Many blessings to you and your family.

Rulan let me know you were under the weather (thanks Rulan!) and I've been praying for you. I haven't been around lately but I wanted you to know you've been prayed for and I'll keep praying.

All praise to Him!! For your good days, for the family that now is forever in His hand, and for becoming 1/4 Wilber!

~your friend,
1/3 Jake. :)

woops- "aya" was meant to be "yay"!!!

 

At Tuesday, June 13, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Karen - “aya” or “yay”, either one is a high compliment from someone as gifted as you.

God bless you sister.
