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!

Pray for wisdom and healing

Today we spent the afternoon looking at wheel chairs to purchase. It is difficult to know what options and features are worthwhile and how adgile vs comfortable to go. We will get a demo over the weekend to try and make sure we have made the right choices. Thankfully I have a customer conval-aid to help us navigate through this. Sandra's discharge from Ottawa rehab is getting closer, possibly mid July with a few more hurdles to get over. A nurse was saying that Sandra is the quickest person through rehab she has seen. Always tring to get better everyday. Please pray for us as we have decisions to make in what our next steps are. We want to actively persue therapies that give Sandra the best opportunity to improve her condition and ultimately walk again. Tomorrow is Julia's grad ceremony and we(Sandra included)will be heading up to the cottage after. The cottage is a bungalow and actually is laid out better then our house. We can all sleep on the same level there, check up on the kids, tuck them in etc... Something sandra has been missing. Probably no blogs till Saturday night or Sunday Mike


  1. We rejoice with you over every little and large steps along this journey! You are continually in our prayers. We trust that the Lord will guide and provide in ways that you cannot yet imagine. He will sustain and keep you and we will all watch as His glory is revealed through you.

    Keep up the remarkable effort Sandra!

    lots of love,

  2. Have a wonderful time at the cottage. Have been at your parents cottage and know the layout. It will be a nice break away from the rest of the world. Jake and Anne (friends of John and Jeannie) PS We were up there a couple of weekend ago.

  3. So good to be up to date again. Hope Julia's graduation ceremony was enjoyed by her and everyone attending it. Did you get to eat that Swiss apricot pie? So glad you will be spending the week-end at your beautiful cottage which we enjoyed so much last summer with you all. May it be a refreshing time for everyone. Much love and trust in the God of all Hope....Irene and Charles

  4. Thank God Sandra, for getting better and better everyday . I love u and praying for u.
