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!

Back Home!

How quickly the time flies. Monday was a little difficult for me this week for some reason, I couldn't get my rhythm but today I was able to tall kneel walk around the track making up for my lack of ability on Monday. It's frustrating when you know you can do it but your body just seems to give out on you. This week they seemed to really focused on exercises that would strengthen muscles in order for me to be able to go from a sit to stand position. This is done with the help of blocking my knees so that they don't buckle. My shoulder was a little sore on Monday but it seems to be holding up, thank you for prayers. Mike and I are continually reminded of the many blessings God has given us. Our families have been amazing. Parents that will stop everything to do what ever is needed. Friends that are continuing to encourage and up lift us in prayer. Meals that just keep coming, thank you. And all you my followers of the blog, thank you for your encouragement and support it amazes me to see how many people (100,000) have kept me/us in there thoughts and prayers. The flexibility that Mike has to be able to come with me back and forth to Detroit. Our amazing girls, Julia and Emily. God has supplied all our needs and has been giving us the grace that we need for each and every day. Thank you all so much for all you do, your encouragement and most of all your prayers. Please continue to pray for complete healing (I'm ready to give this chair away to charity any day now). Pray for Mike as he goes to work that he is able to complete all that he needs to do. For the girls that God would continue to stretch them in there faith and grow them into amazing women for His glory. Hugs Sandra 


  1. I was using you today as a visual aid to what I was teaching the women in our W2W study group on the topic of "Receiving and Retaining God's Comfort at Times of Suffering". We are among your audience to learn what it means to lean on God under the most trying circumstances. I know how many ministries you had to give up, but believe me, God is using you in more ways than you may know. Caring for you and praying for you continually, Irene

  2. I'm praying without ceasing Sandra. Thanks for the specific prayer requests. Be strong and of good courage my beautiful friend. Love and hugs, Keri

  3. I continue to be amazed at how much you have accomplished in 4 months! What a woman! What a family! What a wonderful God!

    You should know that many of the prayer partners on our Church Prayer-Line continue to ask about you and the family as they are hungry to hear your news. You are all covered by much prayer, including ours.....God's Richest Blessings & Our Love, Brenda and Duncan
