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!

New Every Day

It amazes me that everyday they have new exercises for me to do.  I was a little concerned or even disappointed yesterday that my shoulder was acting up. After icing, rest and prayer...today, I was pleased that I was able to follow through with all of the exercises with out pain. It was weaker but I was able. Everyday Mike and I are reminded of God's blessing on our lives and how He has gone before us. We don't know sometimes why things are happening to us at the time but I look back and see how He has prepared and has given us the grace for the day. Today we had a surprise. Friends from Ottawa (Rudd's) were dropping their daughter off at University and on there way home stopped off in Detroit and had lunch with us. God gives you that extra boost of encouragement when you need it.
Daily Prayer... Please continue to pray for my shoulder that it will get stronger and be able to handle what ever they throw at me. Pray that I would start to see voluntary muscle movement. We are meeting a lot of people, pray that Mike and I will be the example that God would want us to be and that we would have the opportunity to share His love with them. Pray for safe travel back to the cottage. Please continue to pray for the girls as we prepare for school coming up and the daily routine of life. Much love, Hugs Sandra

  1. Thanks for the updates. Many people are praying for you and God is surely at work in this situation in so many ways. Still praying for complete healing for you, for God to be glorified and for others to be healed spiritually through your faithfulness in this.
