“Everything’s Bigger in Texas”
“One, two, three,” said the ultrasound tech. No, he was not singing a Jackson 5 song – he was counting the babIES appearing on the screen. Reality is still setting in – we are having triplets! The news of all is our babies are healthy (babies are seven weeks along). I have never been busier. Life is in fast-forward. Today, it was as if time stopped. Audrey and I are living in the moment. Thankful for God “entrusting” us with this blessing (as one long-time friend commented today). The text we received was from our friend, Lee Strobel. Hearing the news of triplets, his response was classic:
“Welcome to Texas, where everything is bigger and better!”
We would be honored if you would join us in praying for health and protection for “Baby A,” “Baby B,” and “Baby C” (as the ultrasound tech referred to them!). Our goal is 32 weeks for the babies. Also, please pray for Audrey. My wife is an amazing, independent woman. She has a tremendous faith in God and is the strongest person I know. She is also human and she is overwhelmed … and overjoyed. We are thankful for the amazing supporting cast we are blessed to have in Houston – and thankful for friends, pastors, professors, colleagues, and family all over the world who are praying for us. And to think … there was a time [five long years] we were unable to get pregnant (click here for more) – now we have five children! We serve a great God.
