And the Updating Begins...

Tomorrow is Eden's surgery day. We don't know the time yet... we're hoping for early! I have been so humbled already by all the emails, calls, cards, and kind words you have all been sending. I am confident that the Lord is walking ahead of us and preparing this road for us. I am thankful that He knows Eden so intimately and that He will give wisdom to Dr. Fuchs tomorrow as he preforms her surgery. 

Please pray these things for her and her doctors: 
1. For complete and perfect healing - that this will "solve" the problem and she will not require a shunt.
2. That the Lord will protect her mind for harm = so that she can come to know Him one day. 
3. For Dr. Fuchs and the other medical staff taking care of her - that they would be wise in their decisions and actions and know exactly how to take care of her. 
4. That she would have a quick recovery - free from infection. 
5. That the Lord would grant Josh and I opportunities to share about His goodness in our lives in the midst of difficult circumstances.

From day one, our prayer for Eden has been Colossians 1:9-10... and again, I find myself praying it - asking that the Lord would continue to fulfill this in her life: 

" And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you (Eden), asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in ALL spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God." 

We will keep the blog updated frequently. Thank you again for your continued prayers!

Josh, Steph, and Eden

I am Staci's friend and just wanted you to know that our family is praying for you earnestly today. Also, we are here to support Staci. It's hard for her being so far from you right now. You are very precious to her!
Blessings in abundance,
