We are so thankful things are progressing as expected and that you can be in the apartment for your 25th anniversary and Christmas. I know you are thankful for family and friends that can come. Our prayers continue to be with you during these days of waiting. We want to wish you a very special 25th Anniversary and Merry Christmas. We can be thankful for every day that He gives us and please remember that your rope holders are here for you.

Happy Anniversary--and we appreciate the time you take to give us updates. Enjoy your family at this special time of the year!

Bless you Debbie, Roger is a trouper, we know that. However, you are a real hero too. As your 25th anniversary comes up, I am reminded of our vow,"In sickness and in health." How you have certainly been there for Roger. That is a true example of not only romantic love, but God's love in you. You are both in my prayers.

Ruth Voorhees

Best wishes on the 25th anniversary. You two are a good example of what the wedding vows mean when it says "till death do you part".

We do understand that you will be busy with family, appointments, and all that goes into running a home. Thank you for keeping us informed with all the you do. We all love the two of you like family.

Have a Merry CHRISTmas and a Blessed New Year.

Ruth

Roger and Debbie,

Thanks for the reminder of what Christmas is really about. It is so easy to get caught up the hustle and bustle and loose sight of Christ with us...that is what it is about and it is certain that He is with you two. Grace upon grace and strength for this day is my prayer for you both. My mom always said, "no news is good news" enjoy your time together with your family and have a very special 25th!!! Love from TN. Jeff and Terry

Donna Foster Cates

HI,
Glad to hear things are going well. I can't believe it's been 25 years since we were in the Chapel at SBC and you and the big R said I do. Believe it or not, I still have my bridesmaid dress! That was a very special time for me and a dear memory. What a beautiful wedding it was.
Merry Christmas to you! You are always in my prayers and in my heart. Love, Donna

Carol

Wishing you and your family a joyous Christmas. I'm so glad each of you have received the "Greatest Gift" of all into your life. Now we pray for the wonderful physical gift of healing for Roger.
Merry Christmas!

Dear Debbie,
Howdy, howdy! Praise the Lord we are still in His grip.
I just sent you all a card out in the mail and not knowing you all's 25th anniversary was coming up I did not wish you a happy anniversary in it.
So, since I done sent it out I want to wish you all a very happy 25th anniversary.
I love you all and I pray for you all everyday.
We have a pretty long day ahead of us so I have got to go.

In His Grip,
Mark

Vicky Schnorbus

Roger & Debbie - Congratulations on the 25th anniversary. Not many young people even make it to the first or second these days, so you two are even more special. Of course, we all know that. No one says it's easy to keep a marriage going, but you two have done it.

I'm not surprised that Roger is tired so much. Going back and forth from the apartment to the hospital, and waiting endlessly for tests, visits, etc. would make even the strongest, healthiest person tired. He is to be commended for making it through each and every day.

All of us down here in Austin continue to pray for all of the Bennetts, and we know that since God answers prayers, things will go well with the two of you.

To the Bennetts temporarily in Houston, from the Schnorbuses and Wilsons in Austin - we wish you love and God's continued blessings.

Ruth McKenzie

So thankful for the up-date, Debbie. I wish I had an address for you and Roger and I would send you a lovely 25th Anniversary card. Since I don't, let me (us) wish you a very blessed day on your special day and God's presence with you now and for another 25! His will be done. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Ruth & Bill McKenzie

I would like to take this opportunity to thank both of you for being such an inspiration to all of us during this holiday season. We are so blessed to have a Saviour that we can turn to for comfort and strength in our time of need. You have helped us to grow closer to the Lord as we pray for Roger's speedy recovery. May God bless and keep you as we contiue to lift you up to the Lord in prayer.

"Merry Christmas" from the fans in Arkansas

Helen Swartzentruber

Roger and Debbie, Happy 25th anniversary. I am so thankful you can be together in the apartment, instead of the hospital room on your anniversary. God is so goodand He loves to give His children blessings. I am so glad you take time out to update us by E-Mail. Thank-you for doing it. May God make this Christmas very special to you and your Family! Keep hanging on to the rope and looking to Jesus. You guys are such an inspiration to every one.

Happy Anniversary!!!!!The 25th is a great accomplishment and a testimony in its self.Wishing you all another 25 years.

The Wilson Family

Debbie - The 3 of us are so happy to know that things are still going well with Roger and you in the apartment. Going back and forth would make even HERCULES tired, or SAMPSON even, although they were both extremely strong and healthy men.

A friend of ours (well, more of John that of me) has just gotten back from spending a couple of weeks at M.D. Anderson. His wife is having to undergo lots of diagnostic testing, and none of us think the doctors know what they're looking for. The funniest thing Arnold said when he saw us was, "I would swear I saw Debbie Bennett walking down a hall I was on. But I was too afraid to stop and ask her if she really WAS Debbie Bennett." John said the person would only have said "Yes, I am" or "No, I'm not" to answer the question. Vicky assured Arnold that when they went back down again in a couple of weeks - or maybe it's right after Christmas - and sees this same person, he should just ask straight out "Are you Mrs. Bennett?" Arnold said if it's you, and you say "yes", he'll probably fall over in a dead faint. So I hope you're up on your CPR. :) They've been down there since right before Thanksgiving, and are just now back in Austin for a while. I think Ann will have to go back shortly after Christmas for the next round of tests. We're hoping that this time someone will be able to figure out what's wrong with her. We're calling it CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME, but with a couple of other things added, and those we can't get a grip on.

Enjoy your visitors (I know you will), and remind Roger to run himself at only HALF STEAM, or 1/3 steam, while his dad, Jane, and the kids are there. Save the high speed(s) for when he's released and out on his own.

We all continue to pray for not only the two of you, but for Jordan and Chelsea, and your other family members, as well as the members of L5 and their families. Our hope is that you are able to have a sweet and wonderful experience during this season. We will keep praying daily, for as long as it takes, to get this matter taken care of.

So - From the Wilson & Schnorbus families in Austin, up to the Bennett family in Houston - - lots of love from us, and may God continue to pour his blessings on each and every one of you.

Mary Alice Haldeman

Thank you for the update. We will keep praying for you and your family. This is such an important time of year when God fulfills a promise and we all know God's eternal love. As you say this can be celebrated anywhere--a manger or an apartment!
Peace and Love to you--Merry CHRISTmas! Mary Alice Haldeman

Bobby Pace

I am very thankful Roger is progressing well. I hope and pray he continues to do so. Congratulations on your 25th anniversary and may you, Roger, and the family have a wonderful Christmas. I am looking forward to attending the Celebration Of the Cathedrals get together in March at Birmingham AL with Roger, L5 and the other groups. I was at the Our Cathedral Years performance last year and it was wonderful. If it is the Lord's will I hope Roger will be doing great by then. I am a huge Cathedrals fan and of course love L5 and the other groups that were spun off. May God continue to bless you and Roger.

Bobby Pace Cullman AL.

Yvonne Lewis

Thanks for the good report was so good to read that Roger is doing better. Debbie thanks for all the up dates you are so good to keep the rope holders up to date.
You are both in my prayers and thoughts as I know that God is still in the healing business and what a blessing that is to know.
Love you both in Christ Yvonne

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. (*****)
