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!

Good Morning to everyone. I have just woken up. I had a great evening, it's amazing how a shower will make you feel, rejuvenated, energized and ready to take on anything. As I was getting ready for bed I was reading my bible and the air ambulance came in, I've been praying for the patient's that having been coming, that they know or will have the opportunity to know my saviour. God has given me such a peace about my situation. He has promised me never to leave me nor forsake me. John 14:23 God was talking to His disciples, If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. God promised that if we accept and have a relationship with him His Holy Spirit will actually enter our hearts, settle and be at home. It's my favorite promise because I never have to do anything alone my heavenly Father is always with me. So its my prayer that these patients and anyone that I come in contact with will have that peace. I am amazed and overwhelmed with the pour out of love, support and prayers that we are recieving. God is good. Julia and Emily have been so well taken care of. Mike and I have been blessed with a abundance of amazing family and friends, it allows Mike to be able to come and be with me here and for us not worry about how they are doing. (They just might not want to come back) Julia has been tired and concerned but starting to deal with what is happening. Emily is just wanting her Mommy back at home. I look forward to being able to snuggle with her again. I miss that! I am so thankful and blessed to have my mind and my arms to be able touch and hug each and everyone of you. You all have a special place in my heart and I can't imagine going through anything in life with out my God and the support of my brothers and sisters in Christ. THANK YOU! I am His and He is mine. What a peace. I love you all and look forward to seeing each and everyone of you. Please be praying for my contnuied strenghth, energy, healing. Pray for Julia and Emily, in the months to come as they are going to be difficult and very different summer than what they have been looking forward to. Continue to pray for Mike, my rock. He has been amazing thought this all. With a thankful heart, Sandra
