This is Ryan, Stephanie's husband. I usually wouldn't hijack Stephanie's blog, but Steph has just left for the emergency room at our local hospital. She's extremely sick and things only seem to be getting worse. In the Langford family, going to the hospital is usually a last resort (although we're not afraid to consult doctors when necessary), so my wife woke me up at 3:30 this morning to say that she needed to go the emergency room I knew that it was serious. Her neck is quite swollen and she is in a lot of pain, which has progressively gotten worse over the last week and a half.
I would covet your prayers for Stephanie's quick recovery. He has always been faithful, good and kind to us and and I know that he will continually be. I'm reminded again that He has already met our greatest need - salvation from the wrath of God which we wholly deserved - and am encouraged at the many ways (and especially in our salvation) that we have already seen "the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus."
So...we are grateful for what he has already done for us, and ask that you pray with us that Stephanie recovers quickly!
