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 you doing... No really how are you doing?
So this is the question we get asked allot. Sometimes it depends on when you ask what answer you might get. Under the circumstances we are doing very well. We do have the comfort that God is in control, he has a plan for our lives and this will somehow work out. Probably the best way to sum up our state is we have bad hours not bad days. There are things you don't even think about that Sandra misses, like having her clothes hang instead of always feeling bunched up, having a real sneeze or cough since they come from your lower abs the list goes on and on. Every day is better than the last and we look forward to what the future holds for us. Mike
