Thought this was cool:
FACING THE GIANTS hit stores and online retailers last week, and from initial reports, it is proving to be a big winner on DVD! For more than a week, it has been among the top 20 DVDs at Amazon.com, a list that includes television programs and specials. Reports from major retailers indicate that the DVD is just as popular in stores. In addition, local DVD rental stores reported that this was one of their best renting movies last weekend.
When it comes to Christian retail, FACING THE GIANTS is the biggest first-week theatrical DVD to hit stores since The Passion of the Christ in 2004. Reports from Christian retail chains indicate the need for a large number of re-orders to keep up with demand. Talk about an overwhelming response. Thank you for your incredible support!
I am glad it is doing so well. Last night Victor, Kendra and I went to see Tracy in the hospital. It was nice. It was a bit odd that we were watching Gray's Anatomy while in a hospital. A hospital show in a hospital. Was someone watching us too? There ARE cameras in the elevators.
Tonight we are having a birthday dinner with Bob and Julie. It is Bob's birthday. For you who don't know him, he was a roommate of mine in college and we go to church together at Parkway now. They are getting ready to move to Illinois for Bob's work and although they will be just across the river, there probably won't be as much of an opportunity to get together soon. So, in some ways this is a last hoo-rah!
Tomorrow we are going to Columbia to have lunch with my mother-in-law. She has Christmas presents for us from Kendra's favorite Aunt. Christmas in February can be good! Also, our niece Kim just had her third baby and is in the hospital in Columbia. If she doesn't go home today we will stop by and see she and the baby for awhile as well.
Nothing new with my Aunt. She is hanging in there. If something happens and the funeral is Monday I am pretty sure Darla and I will not go. It is supposed to get REALLY bad weather wise here and could be dangerous. It may even be another SNOW DAY! ARGH! Is this winter ever going to end? They are calling for accumulating snow and MORE ICE! YIKES! Sick of this I am!
Dare 2 Share is this weekend. We have just had so much going on (and as you can tell we still do) that we decided this was an event we would sit out on. It should be great and I am excited for those of you who get to go!
Last night, Tracy asked us to bring her Diet Mountain Dew and Cheetos. We also did a sock puppet show for her. She laughed. That is good. So, I have to go get some work done! I'm out of here!
