Hebrews 12:1-3

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!

Hmmmm, I seam to have lost my touch, not sure what happened to the last post. Sandra got to the gym yesterday and did some transfers. Her physio people are very impressed with her progress. She is physically and mentally eager and ready to get to rehab. We were told yesterday that it could still be a week or two. Please pray for an opening because this trauma ward as nice as it is, is getting old. We do see all kinds here and when we look around still thankful for her progress. We have some police presence and her neighbor is cuffed to the bed which gives me a little entertainment. Another prayer request is for Sandra to continue to be free of bed sores. Aparently they are a huge set back and take weeks to recover from. Mike

    Hey! We had heard of the accident and have been praying for you, but have just discovered this Blog! Thanks for sharing and updating! Seems a wise and generous choice... We have also updated Pete up on Wiky: you have been such an encouragement to him and to us as he ventured there...

    I am including a link to a video for you. Mark sang this song at the Met the week before I began my own journey of faith and illness, hope, tears, trust and peace. He told the hospital staff at the time that he understood the "road turns" and it is our job to simply stay the course.
    I trust it will be an enouragement to you all.

    Continue to take very good care of each other and to celebrate the victories, however little they may seem!!
