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!

Road to Recovery

The van is packed and we are on the road to recovery. We are hoping to make it to Sarnia in time to have dinner with our dear friends the Persad's.  The girls will be spending the next 3 days with them while Mike and I will be spending the night in a hotel in Sarnia and than heading over to Detroit in the morning. I starting my first rehab session at 1pm. I'm very excited to get started. I know God has some exciting things to show me and I am so ready. 
We want you all to know how thankful we are for all your prayers and support. We definitely feel the blessing that God has supplied us with family and friends we need to help us through this time. A few of you who will remain nameless have stated that you would like me to blog more specific prayer request and maybe even more often, so I will attempt to do just that. Daily prayer... Safe travel as we drive to Sarnia and Detroit. Boarder crossing will go well and quickly in the morning. That both Mike and I will sleep well as the next few days are going to be both physical and mentally hard. That I will be able to see gains/progress this week. God promised that He would only give us what we could handle. I'm so thankful for that promise and for the daily reminders that He is in control. We Love You All. Hugs, Sandra


  1. So nice to hear from you, Sandra! :) Thank you for the specific prayer requests, too. We are like the 'persistent widow' in Luke 18, crying out to Him day and night on your behalf. We continue to pray daily, and are looking forward to hearing your updates!


  2. Wishing you safety, peace, healing and some fun too! Give those Persads a hug for us! Love to you all. PJMA

  3. I will continue to pray for you daily and hope that everything works out for you and your family. You are a strong woman and i know you will make it through. Like you said God only gives us what we can handle and what doesnt kill you will make you stronger. Lots of love xoxo Jessica M
