Cottage Life. We are back, Mike is traveling back and forth to work for the next two days. Thanks to all of you that prayed us home. Our week went well, we are both tired but will catch up on our sleep over the weekend. Emily had fun with the Persad helping out with VBS at there church and Julia had a blast with her friend Tori in Wonderland. Now we are spending time with my Mom and Dad here at the cottage. Every week I feel a little stronger and encouraged by the many people that we meet. These people all have had a spinal injury of some sort, they have been so kind to share there experiances with us. Daily Prayer... Voluntary Muscle Movement, I would love to be able to start to feel or see some muscle movement in my hips or legs. This would be a sure sign of things to come. Please pray that my shoulder will continue to heal and be strengthened. Continue to pray for complete healing, I'm so looking forward to that day that I will be able to stand and take my first step again. Hugs Sandra
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!
