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!

Physio went well

Sandra had physio this afternoon and did some leg stretches and extensions. The therapist is very happy with her progress. She also was given some weights to maintain her upper body strength. Mike


  1. Sandra,

    You're looking "some shockin' good", I love the big smile on your face.

    You are an inspiration and are a great witnesss to all who see and have heard about your hope and joy in the mist of troubles.

    Looking forward to stopping by soon.

    Praying for you.

  2. All that hard work at the gym is not going to anywhere now that you have weights.

    Reading the blog and people's comments is like having a little bit of church every day. What a blessing and encouragement to me and so many around the world. Today, I am especially reminded to pray for your girls. I watched their baptism video with your parents. God has blessed you with amazing girls! We know it has not been by accident. Proverbs 3:5-6
    Love & hugs,

  4. Dear Sandra and Family,

    Not sure if you remember me, Nicole (Grant and Michelle's niece- Jeff and Ellen's Daughter). Jeremy (my husband) and I are still living in the Middle East, and have been following your blog on a regular basis.

    We are so touched by your enormous strength and faith. We pray for you every day!

    All our love and continued prayers for strength and healing.

    God Bless,
    Nicole & Jeremy
