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!

With every day I get stronger and learn how to maximize my energy to accomplish more. I didn't realize how driven I could be until I notice I was timing self on everything I'm doing. So 2 hours to get my self ready in the morning with the help of nurses has now been reduced to 40 minutes with limited help. It's official I can dress myself from top to bottom, including my shoes which believe it or not is a huge feat. Yesterday I was learning how to do pop a wheelies, which will help be get over cracks and curbs. Transferring to the car has given me more opportunity to be able to come home. As I write this I'm sitting in my back yard enjoying the beautiful sounds and smells of summer. I don't think it gets much better than this. I'm not able to stay over night yet but it's just around the corning. I can't tell you how much it encourages me to be with family and friends. Please continue to pray that my shoulder will heal, that I would be able to stay in the current room that I'm in, pray for wisdom and direction as we have many disicions to make regarding rehab options and ultimately complete healing. Every morning I look at my big toes and try to move them one day I believe they will. God is able! HUGS Sandra
