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!

Surgeon happy with progress
Today Sandra and I went back to the civic for a follow up appointment with her surgeon. All went well and he was happy with Sandra's progress. We had some concerns about some tightness in her back and he explained that it was healing and would feel better in the months to come. We also talked about future rehab options and he offered his email to get his opinion. It was a little emotional being back in the place that there were so many firsts. Little things like the first time in her chair, outside, ect...Also the place of allot of personal turmoil, wondering what our future would look like and how we were going to get through this. Most of these questions are still to be answered but at that time the wounds were still fresh. We continue to pray for complete healing and are comforted in the fact that God is in control and he will turn this for good. Mike
