Update On Jessica and Candyce

I have gotten comments asking about Jessica and the baby so I thought I would post to update you. First of all she made her blog private due to some anonymous comments being left that were upsetting her. I've had some too which is why I have had to eliminate anonymous comments altogether. I know that will prevent my sister and others from visiting but the devil has been on the attack of my beliefs and standards and convictions. So I have had to change my settings of who can view my blog.

Now...as for what is going on with Jessica and the baby. Jessica is in true labor as of this afternoon. She has been having irregular contractions for over two weeks now. She went to the dr this morning and her midwife said she has not started to dilate yet. She has been having VERY strong contractions all afternoon that have been consistently 10 minutes apart and are lasting 2 minutes with each one. We believe this is the real deal now. She is having to stop in her tracks and breathe with each one. She cannot lay down for them hurting so much worse.

Please pray for her and for Candyce...and Ronnie too!! Jessica is weary from lack of sleep due to her contractions keeping her from sleeping lately. She is thinking she may not be able to do this when it gets worse with the pain. She needs all of our prayers right now. Thank you so much. I will post more as I know more. And of course there will be pictures when Candyce gets here.

Hello Julie-dear, I am so sorry about those people who have attacked you via the internet. One verse comes to mind: "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." In a biblical sort of way, this persecution is a blessing - although I'm sure it's doesn't seem so :o(
You and your family are in my prayers. On a lighter note: I can't wait to see pictures of your FIRST GRANDBABY!!

Sis. Julie,

I am praying for a safe delivery for Jessica and Candyce. I am also praying for you as you go through these trying times. God bless you. You are such a blessing to me. I appreciate you.

Love you,
Sis. Becky

How awful to have to close your blog due to cowardly weirdos. No wonder we didn't get any updates! I was afraid that something had gone really wrong, and no one wanted to blog about it!

Please give our best to Ronnie and Jessica and Josh and Kristina. How things change in a few short years!

We are planning a furlough in late 2010. Hope we can get together again!

Thank you for posting this update, I have been reading Jessica's (and Kristina's) blogs for a while now. I will definitely keep her in my prayers for a safe delivery of baby Candyce. I am very sorry to hear that other people have been rude to you girls. If you wouldn't mind, could you please pass along to Jessica that I have always found her blog to be very uplifting and helpful on my own personal walk with the Lord. She is a lovely Christian lady and I do hope that she doesn't take any negativity to heart (and the same goes for the rest of you too).

God Bless you all! Stay strong in the Lord!

Praying for Jessica, Ronnie and Baby Candyce. I'm hoping it's all over now and you all are actually celebrating as I'm typing, but I'll be praying just in case.

Hi,
I just stopped by this morning to see if Candyce is here yet!!!!

Jessica is going to have a tough time of it. I know, because I delievered a posterior baby last year and the pain is FAR more than delivering a baby that is in a normal position. I've been thinking of her all night as I've been wide awake with my own contractions. LOL.

Julie,
Thank you for posting about Jessica and baby. I enjoy looking at her blog, and checked in this week to find out I no longer could look. It is disappointing, but understandable!

Hello,
I have followed yours. Kristina's and Jessica's blogs. It is a shame people have to be so cruel. I hope Kristina keeps blogging, I think she is so interesting. One of the few true young christian people left in this sinful world.

I'm so sorry you and Jessica's blogs have been under attack. I, too, was disappointed to find I couldn't read her blog anymore. Hopefully we can get updates through you?!

Am praying for all of you!
