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!

Cottage Life!

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


  1. Loving to hear you talk like that...we are SO looking forward to that day too! We know that with God all things are possible for those who love Him...and you do. Keep the faith and stay strong.


  2. 22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[f] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” [26] [g]

    Dear Lord thanks that we can BELIEVE that nothing is too hard for you and I pray with faith that Sandra will feel some muscle movement in her hips or leg. Lord you are a healer as well as a saviour, " you went doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the enemy " so thanks that we can believe that you can restore Sandra's movements again. In Jesus name I pray.

  3. I can only echo the words already beautifully written in the last two comments. I will bring you to our Lord every day in prayer, as you continue to journey on this road to recovery.
    "Be strong and courageous, do NOT be afraid, and NEVER be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go".
