Happy New Year, friends! Thinking back on 2016, we have much to be thankful for. This holiday season was a reminder to us again of God’s faithfulness. We took a break from our normal routine, probably a lot like many of you, and spent quite a bit of time with family. Henry got to meet some new cousins, see lots of Christmas lights, and open a few presents.
I’m writing this from a hospital room here in Norman. This morning my grandpa (Vernon Henry Frymire) had knee replacement surgery, so Brooke, Henry, and I are keeping him company. It’s moments like this that we cherish so much, and a huge reason why we wanted to move back here. Henry’s bedtime is coming up and when they leave, I’ll test his skills at Skip-Bo. Don’t let the hospital bed fool you. He’s sneaky good at Skip-Bo. I’ll need to bring my A-game.
I know many of you are wondering, so I won’t delay any longer. Brooke is feeling well and the pregnancy is still going very smooth. The other day, she began having her first contractions. This afternoon, Brooke packed her bags so whenever Eden Grace is ready to meet us, we will be ready too! Her due date isn’t until January 28, so we’re hoping she keeps cooking for a few more weeks.
For the most part, we’ve just been getting Eden’s room ready and enjoying the last few naps we’ll have for quite some time. The same has been true for my responsibilities at the church, in a lot of ways. Things slowed down quite a bit with so many people traveling and students going home for Christmas break. As y’all know, they’ll pick back up pretty quick over the next couple of weeks. January 22 is a big day for us here at Providence Road – the day we launch our second service for the first time.
As often as you think about us, we’d love it if you would remember us in prayer. Here are a few ways you can do that:
