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!

Day Two!

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


  1. Sandra, so excited to hear you did a lap around the gym on your first go at this exercise!! May the joy of the Lord continue to be your strength. Great to know your specific prayer requests as we continue to join our faith with yours and several others. With Jesus on your side, it only gets better!

  2. Sandra, It's Lina from Sunstar! I heard of your accident today through a fellow colleague. I knew you were a special person from the day we met, and this blog proves it. My family and I will be praying for you. We have a Caring and Loving God, and I know that your faith will sustain you. You serve as an example of grace though tough circumstances and your journey is a true testament and lesson to everyone. I have never met your Husband, but my heart is filled with happiness to know that you are surrounded by an obviously great man and an amazing family.
    May God bless you and your family, Lina

  3. Oh Sandra, your courage and determination are simply God-given.
    I'm praying for you daily and hope that your results reflect your effort. We were in to see Dr. Leo the other day for our hygiene appts and they're all pulling for you too!! Take good care and get in there and fight! Like Dr. Leo and I were saying..."If there's anyone in this world that has the fight in them for this, it's Sandra." Love and hugs! Claire
