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!

Tuff morning but good afternoon
Well we had a tuff morning. I think the hardest part is the unknown for all 4 of us. Sandra and I are planners and like to know the road ahead. We have our 5 year plans etc.... all laid out but we have been thrown a curve. The night of the accident I prayed to the Lord that this won't be life changing, well even if Sandra walks tomorrow it is still certainly life changing for our families and those who have been touched by our lives and this blog. My Aunt shared a song, an oldie but a goodie. Because he lives I can face tomorrow,because he lives all fear is gone, because I know he holds the future and life is worth a living just because he lives. Mike
