Requesting prayer...

UPDATE: 2/24/11 -- Thank you ALL so much for your prayers for my surgery! Everything went so well, and we sensed the Lord's presence and peace in a very real way!! God has blessed with a good recovery, and we're also praising the Lord that all my tests came back clear. Please rejoice with us! Thank you, again!
"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD." Ps. 31:24

Well, this isn't our typical blog post...but this has not been a 'typical' week for our household!! In fact, it's been a week filled with visits to the doctor, emergency rooms, and now a surgery scheduled for this coming weekend! On this past Sunday morning, I [Abi] awoke with severe abdominal pain. Upon arriving at the ER and having several tests run--it was discovered that I have a 4 inch in diameter cyst inside of me. Surgery is scheduled for this Saturday morning (Feb. 5th). We would appreciate if you...our blog readers would be willing to uphold us before our Heavenly Father's throne! Specific prayer requests would be 1.) For God's peace to surround us 2.) Wisdom and skill for the doctor performing the surgery 3.) For my surgery, and recovery to go well!

Thank you in advance for supporting us in this way! We appreciate it!!!
