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!

First Day!!

We thought it was kinda cool that
this is sponsored by Chrysler!!
WOW, what a day! Mike and I started of with a relaxing morning getting ready and than we headed over to the center for our first appointment. I spent the first hour working on my core strength, which included me getting up on my knees and hands moving side to side keeping my balance. The second hour I spent doing exercises that allowed me to weight bare on my legs and work my core at the same time. The last hour I went on the FES bike. It was exciting and exhausting all at the same time. We met a fellow Canadian, Mary. Mary injured her T4 just like my self and for three years she was told by several physiotherapist that she would never walk and that she was wasting her time doing any exercises. She read one day in the paper an article on RIM. She gave them a call and went to see them the following day. They told her that she should walk. Well it's been a year and she is walking. Amazing! Mike made a comment that as we looked around the spinal cord injury rehab centre there were more people walking than not. God has a plan, I really feel that He has directed us to this place for a reason. Thank you to all of you for praying me here and for my continued recovery. Daily prayer....Please continue to pray for complete healing. Strength and energy during my Physiotherpy sessions. Pray that I will be able to establish a good routine traveling back and forth from Detroit and home. Pray that the girls will continue to feel Gods comfort. That God would be glorified through this all. Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers. Hugs Sandra


  1. "In the wilderness our identity melts, is pushed down, squashed, stripped down, and broken open. During these times of trials His love heals us and His love fills us. Coming out of the wilderness, we are hopelessly in love with Him and so full of the power of His love that it's going to spill out of us. We will now finally be able to respond to His command to love one another in the way that He loves us (John 13:34)".

  2. Thanks for updating us...so inspiring! We are praying constantly and God is already being glorified through both of you. Keep drawing on His Spirit to believe that He has a wonderful plan for you.


  3. It is so inspiring to read yesterday's and today's blog and see your positive attitude and trust in the Lord. It is our prayer that He will give you the patience and endurance needed for each moment of each day as you adjust to this new routine and look to Him for complete healing... Your girls must be so proud of a mother and a father who are united in their effort to do all in their power to be overcomers. We love you all, Irene

  4. You continue to be in our prayers. Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us. You are truly an inspiration! God bless.

  5. I am so happy that you can go to this clinic and talking with Mary must have really encouraged your heart! Keep taking one day at a time!
