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!

A Long road

We have a long road ahead, both in terms of the 401 and in Sandra's recovery. It was exciting and difficult to see Sandra go through her sessions. On the bright side there are people there who have gone through the program that have seen significant gains, but it was difficult to see Sandra have to work that hard. One of the therapist came to me and said "Most people don't finish, they stop and just cry the first time", well she finished and at least we waited to get to the van for the cry. The atmosphere is very upbeat and positive, with patients and staff cheering others on when a new accomplishment are made. Our down time is Tuesday afternoon since Wednesday we just want to get home. This week we met our girls and the Persads at the outlet store for a few hours. Next week might be the Detroit zoo and at some point I will take in the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. Other then that not allot to do in Detroit until the Red Wings start to play. Mike
