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!

Rehab here I come!

Good News ... I am heading to rehab tomorrow. There is so many unknowns at this point and Im exciteded but anxious at the same time. Please be praying that my actual trip there will go well, for my room (would love a private room but will take what I can get) and for the people that will be working with me. I'm expecting that it will be a lot of hard work but I'm up for the challenge. God is good and I know He is going before me and preparing the way. Thanks to all of you for praying and for your continued prayers. I love you all. Hugs Sandra


  1. Amazing. You have touched so many while at the hospital.....I know they will miss you. New beginnings are always challenging but I know you are up for it. Let me know where to bring lunch! Love you all.

  2. Praise God! We continue to hold you up in prayer, Sandra.

  4. God is good all the TIME, Sandra. Praying for u and I love u, Fabs.

  5. Hi Sandra,

    It's been many years since we last saw each other; in fact you and Mike were still dating, lol. I was shocked and saddened to hear about your accident and just reached out to Mike today to let him know of my thoughts and prayers for you and your family. Not to mention I just bought a bike again and my mother wasn't too happy given she was the one who shared the news with me.

    Your outlook and faith is remarkable and a witness for others. I've been reading your blogs and it's been moving to see the love and support in every aspect of your lives. I pray God grants you strength, healing, patience, wisdom, energy, and continued love and support.

    It would be nice to see you and Mike again, hopefully in the not too distant future. Keep your chin up and your eyes on the Lord.
