Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

2 weeks in
In some ways I can't believe we are 2 weeks in and in other ways I can't believe it's only been 2 weeks. Sandra is getting stronger, more comfortable every day. She takes some pain medication but a fairly small amount. The kids were on a youth retreat with the church so it was nice not to have to make plans for them but we are eagerly waiting their return tonight. We continue to pray for healing and Sandra to make a full recovery but are content with what God gives us and are happy for what we still have. Mike
