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!

You are Mine
Isaiah 43:1 "Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are Mine" there is a lot of unknowns and I've started to think what are the next few weeks, months going to look like, but than God reminds me Sandra be still (which isn't to hard, but hard for my brain) praying for patience! I want to get to rehab and start working to see what can be accomplished. The amazing thing is that God already knows and I just need to be still in the moment and trust. I am His and He is Mine...... Its in His time not mine. Everyday I get stronger and I am able to do more which I am grateful for. The doctors, nurses and physiotherapists are amazed at how well I am doing and encourage me to keep it up. Have to say I might be a little stubborn or driven, not sure but if they tell me half an hour oh I'm doing an hour what ever it takes. Please continue to pray for Julia and Emily. They are doing better everyday but there are going to be some tuff days ahead. I have a goal to have my neck brace off by Julia's grad and I would love to be able to do a few mom and daughter things with her. I am truly grateful for the family and friends that have taken my girls under the wing, loved them and made there days as normal as they can be. It's a blessing that I am so thankful for. Pray for Mike aka My Rock. He is amazing and has just taken over everything. I don't have to worry about a thing. He has been s strong and supportive through all of this. Days will come that will be more difficult and I just pray that he will keep leaning on the Lord for support. Romans 5:3-4 "and not only that, but we also glory in tribulations , knowing that tribulations produces perseverance and perseverance, character and character hope." So I am perseving it's a ride I don't want to miss. I love you all ... Thank you for All that you do. It's always exciting to see how many people have checked this blog it's amazing, I think we are up to 20,000 plus. It's crazy! HUGS Sandra
