Oh, Tina and John, I am a complete mess this morning as I read through the blog. We have been busy moving and I've fallen behind. My heart breaks for you and I just want to tell you I love you so much and am praying for you. I also wanted to share with you that my youngest, Morgan, was born on July 3rd also, at about the same time as Eden. May God continue to grant you an extra measure of grace, comfort and understanding beyond yourself and this human side of life.

My Bible study today brought this out and wanted to share it. "Sometimes the circumstances of our suffering may not change, but the circumstances of our hearts are changed in the midst of them through a keen sense of God's presence and a lively perception of His activity." Sending our love and prayers! He is stronger then you need to be and we are shedding tears with you.

Ich bin klein, mein Herz ist rein. Daß niemand drinnen wohnen kann,
als Jesus allein.

I am small, my heart is pure.
That none can dwell within
but Jesus alone.

Oh the joy that life brings. The miracle that Mommie and Daddy could feel growing can never be diminished. God is so wonderfully all knowing and give to us that which we can never imagine. I am so glad that His infinate mercy has allowed my dear Marianne, your Oma, the chance to meet you. To God be ALL the glory, even that which is hard for us to express. We shall meet dear Eden. Love from Omi's Grow Group. Kitty Phelps

Isaiah 41:10
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Philippians 4:6-7
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Our Prayer:
May God continue to pour blessings on all three of you, shower the family in the holy spirit, keep you all safe, and jealously guard your hearts.

A friend of mine who knows your family sent this to us so we could pray could pray for little Eden and we have and continue to do so

Eden our God is God of Miracles. You hold in there and prove Satan and all those doctors who said you would not survive wrong. We speak Life into your body in Jesus Name.
I look forward to seeing what God has in store for your Future. God be the Glory May God give your Mum and Dad Strength
In Christ Love

Thank you for sharing your family and your hope in God with us. It is obvious that you truly know the peace of God just by the looks on your faces. God is shining through you. Eden is a gift from God and we are so glad that you are sharing her with us. She is beautiful! You are in our prayers and on prayer chains in Tx.
