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!

Looking forward to being Home!

We are on our way home. I had a pretty good day, my shoulder held up better today but is still a little tender. They gave me some excersises to do at home to help strengthen it. My core continues to get stronger.  I'm praying that my lower core would really start to kick in and help me with my balance, helping me with my transfers (moving from my wheelchair to bed, chair, etc.) Daily prayer.... Please continue to pray for Mike and the strength that he needs to do all that he does (which is a lot), for the girls that God would continue to work in their lives through this time, that they would continue to do well in school. Pray for both Mike and I as it's hard to leave them week to week. Please be in prayer for my continued healing, praising God for all that He has done and what He is going to do. Hugs Sandra 


  1. We continue to be amazed at how the Lord is working in your lives.
    Your trust in Him is an encouragement to us all.
    Be assured of our prayers for you and your family.

  2. "Because he never lost sight of where he was heading, he could put up with anything along the way"...I just read this verse again and realize how much you have to put up with, moment by moment, and day by day. What a comfort to know that we have a High Priest who can be touched with all we go through, and so we continue to look to Him for comfort, renewed strength, and above all, HEALING...Much love, Irene
