So Sandra has been doing a lot of stretching since her accident and I think she is up to 6 foot now!haha no really that is the height of her therapist in Ottawa, small but mighty. We measured Sandra in her chair on the wall where we are tracking the kids growth over the years, she is 4'1" same as Emily when she was 8.
We continue to be encouraged here in Detroit, we are getting progress even though it is slower then we like and it is very taxing on Sandra physically plus it is difficult leaving the kids every week. I compared it with a friend of mine who travels a lot for work, the 1st few times it was fun getting away, staying in hotels and eating out etc.... But it does get old and all the restaurants start to taste the same. Mike
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!
