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!

How are the kids doing?

We get asked this allot and we appreciate the concern. The kids like most of us were in shock the first few weeks. I right away told them everything i knew, shared my concerns with them and it was good. It was difficult for them as they were shipped from friends and family's homes for over 2 weeks. As time has gone on and sandra comes home more it is feeling almost normal again. Our best times as a family were probably spent in the cafeteria having dinner together, it felt more normal sitting around a table then sitting around a hospital bed. The girls realize that Sandra is still the same mom as before, she just currently can't walk. Mike


  1. Ahh...Bless you Mike for sharing so personally with us. Love how genuine you are . Your love & total trust in the LORD is shining through so beautifully.
    What a great idea to share these answers to ? many of us have been wondering...
    Continuing to pray & believe with all of you. May God continue to be glorified in your lives & through all of the circumstances .

    love, Dixie

  2. I like that "currently" can't walk. Keep the faith and trust the Lord has wonderful things in store for those who put their hope in Him. Aunt Carolyn
