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!

Tough night good assessment

Well we had a rough night last night, Sandra's tone was bad and wouldn't stop made for difficulty sleeping. It is a crazy injury as it affects everything, nothing is as it was and spirits are being tested. Now this morning Sandra had  her assessment and had some good results. Her core is getting stronger probably 2/3rds of what it was. What I have learned is it all starts with the core.
Sandra's hip flexors are stronger and she was able to contract her glutes (butt). This is exciting as it is a new muscle found and her recovery is moving down as anticipated. The next find we need is for the quads as that extends the knee and with alot of stregth gain this will allow her to stand.


  1. hey, we've missed having dinner these last two weeks, but continue to pray for you. Thanks for sharing the encouraging results of the assessment. It's exciting to know that the signals are making their way down.

  2. We are praying for every inch of your recovery. Praise God for this excellent news and we are so encouraged to hear that your diligent effort is showing results.
    Lots of love,
    Wafa,Mark,Thomas,Phillip & Sarah

  6. Hi Mike & Sandra.

    Thanks for sharing the tough realities of your journey ... I cried when I watched the videos of Sandra working so hard with her exercises.

    May our God who gives endurance continue to strengthen in body, mind & spirit.

    May you both feel the comfort of His Sweet Presence cheering you on & carrying you especially at those moments when exhaustion hits hard.
