God Bless you,
Sorry you are waiting again. We are glad the family is together for a few days.

Our families from Dallas and Ohio are in Nashville meeting half-way for the holidays.

From the Plaskett and Kuykendall families to the Bennetts, May you have a Happy and Healthier New Year.

Holding the rope,
Kathy

Vicky

You've been extremely lucky to stay "well" as long as you have. I do hope you and your father get over your colds quickly. I know the waiting is not easy, but please know that your friendly "ropeholders" will keep holding on. Our grips are getting really strong. Lots of love and prayers for ALL of the Bennetts from Austin, TX.

Dear Roger & family....They say in every cloud there is a silver lining...and you seem to always find that silver lining!! What Better time to have another delay in medical proceedings than when your family can be there to share some "uninterrupted" quality time with you? As always...God's timing is perfect! I hope the rest of L-5 is doing well, and has been able to spend time with their families over Christmas, as well. May 2005 be the year you are able to get back to "normal" (whatever That is!) and get back in the "groove" of traveling with your group! God bless you & Continue to keep you & yours in His care! Love to all...Brenda

I already had the computer turned off and was about to go to bed when something prompted me to take "one last look". I'm so glad I did. I am sorry your father got sick, and I'm very sorry you got even part of whatever he has. I pray that both of you feel better really soon. How wonderful you'll get to spend some "quality time" with your children before you start "all over again", as you say. I'm sure they will make the waiting much easier. Love to all of you, and please know that my prayers will continue to be with you and your family. For a "mature" (sounds better than 'old') person, I'm getting rather good at holding that rope. Love from Central Texas. :)

Hi, Roger:

This evening I returned to California from North Carolina. While there, I had the worst cold I have had in years (it was starting in California)--so I feel for both you and your Dad. Just enjoy your children while you do your waiting (not that I have to tell you to do that!).

My prayer for the Bennett family in the new year is one of restoration of health and a blessed walk with our Savior. Love you all. Nina

Helen Johnson

You know what they say. . . .chicken soup is the best cure for a cold. Now there is scientific evidence to support what your grannie always knew. While Debbie puts the soup on to cook, we will hold onto our end of the rope with a sure grip of prayer.
Texas-sized hugs,
Helen

Sherry

Waiting is a room. :) Hold steady...

p.s. In one of my Christmas cards I got this year was poem. I would like to share it with you.
FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW
ONE WHITE AND WINTRY CHRISTMAS EVE
IN A VILLAGE,LONG AGO,
A YOUNG CHILD TOOK A JOURNEY,
LEAVING FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW.
CLUTCHED WITHIN HER TINY HAND
SHE CARRIED A SMALL TATTERED HEART,
FASHIONED FROM SOME SCRAPS OF CLOTH,
WRAPPED IN THE CHARM OF CHILDLIKE ART.

A MANGER SCENE WOOD AND STRAW
WAS THE CHILD'S DESTINATION.
HER ONLY CHRISTMAS WISH,
TO JOIN CHRIST'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION.
SHE PLACED HER PRECIOUS HANDMADE GIFT
UPON THE STRAW WITH CARE,
AND BEFORE SHE TURNED TO LEAVE,
WHISPERED A SIMPLE PRAYER.

THE VILLAGERS WHO STOOD NEARBY
RECALL THAT NIGHT WITH AWE,
RETELLING EVERY DETAIL
OF THE MICACLE THEY SAW.
A SECOND SET OF FOOTPRINTS
APPEARED NEXT TO THE GIRL'S OWN,
THEY SEEMED TO WALK RIGHT BY HER SIDE,
TO SEE HER SAFELY HOME.

BUT THERE'S NO MYSTERY IN THE PRESENCE
OF THIS UNSEEN FRIEND--
FOR ONCE GOD'S TOUCHED YOUR HEART,
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE AGAIN.


Hope you liked this

Roger,
Thanks for the update.

I am so sorry to hear that you and your dad are both fighting a nasty cold.

I will continue to pray for you.

game" again, but very thankful for the time with you family.
Love and prayers from Virginia,

Waiting is never fun, and even less so when one has a sense of urgency. I'm so glad Chelsea and Jordan are there to keep the rest of you company. They sound like very creative young people, so I'm sure they can think of some way to help pass the time. Meanwhile, I'm still holding on to my end of the rope. Love and prayers to all of you from this big state of Texas. Felda (isn't that a terrible name to give a child?).

Nancy

Aren't you glad that the One in control of the timing is absolutely perfect, and incapable of making a mistake? I'm so sorry you're under the weather, and I'm sure you'd like to get this ball rolling, but trust in God. His time is best.
Love to all the Bennetts, and best wishes for a happy, healthy 2005!
Holding the rope tighter than ever,
Nancy

Megan

The waiting part seems to last forever, doesn't it? We're waiting with you. Love to you and the rest of your family, with a prayer for patience for all of us thrown in. Megan.

Morgan

We're holding the ropes!!!

Carol Shoppell

Remember...
"They that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength." "Good things come to those that wait."etc.... That works in the flesh also. Giving your body time to renew itself so you are stronger for the future.
I was so happy you got to enjoy our history making Texas Blizzard! ha! My husband (who is from Michigan where they have REAL snow) just laughs at us and shakes his head saying "So much excitement over so little!" And he's actually right. I've seen then shut down our freeways for such as this.
Continuing to hold you up in prayer.
Carol- your friend at MDACC

Sorry to hear that your dad and you have colds and that things are put once again on the holding pattern. Enjoy your few days while you're waiting with Jordan and Chelsea and Happy New Year. We continue to pray and hold the ropes in Iowa.

Hi Bennetts,
So glad to hear you are getting extended family time. Hopefully the crud (my word for this stuff that goes around) will leave you and your Dad very soon. Consider on hold being safely in the Father's hands.
Praying for you all a safe, healthy and blessed 2005.
In His Grip,
Ann Woodward

What I'm Reading Right Now

  • Ron Mehl: What God Whispers in the Night

    Ron Mehl: What God Whispers in the Night
    Ron Mehl is a hero that I never met. A friend gave me this book a couple of years ago and it really touched me. Ron was suffering with Leukemia and had written several wonderful books before this one "Whispers" really got to me. The main thought is why is it that God who IS light, who created light, does so much of his work in the dark? The answer, because that's where WE are. We struggle in darkness, our weakness is more pronounced in the darkness and we feel so alone in our darkness. But....God is not intimidated by the dark! He invades it and speaks to us there! You should read this book asap. (*****)
