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!

Second day in and they are giving me a run for my money. Today they did completely different exercises but I was exciting that they were able to get me up and crawling. After wrapping up my knees and feet to protect them they attached a harness for support. By weight shifting and tightening my core and the help of the therapists I was able to complete one lap around the gym before collapsing in a tired heap. It was exhausting but felt amazing at the same time. I have to say I was extremely tired today and my arms felt a little sore from the 3 hour work out they got. It's a positive atmosphere, as time continues I feel more and more encouraged. Daily Prayer...strength would have to be at the top of the list, that my arms would hold up and continue to get stronger. Feeling extremely blessed. Hugs, Sandra
