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!

Where do the days go?

We have had another week fly by. Detroit went well, focusing on strengthening my core as much as possible but also working on my hips and glutes. Although Mike and I are spending a lot of quality time together we are missing the girls and finding hard to jam 7 days in to 3 when we get home. October is always an exciting month for us, for starters our first born Julia was born on October 25th and second we for the past few years have been able to take a week of holidays and spend it with our dear friends the Martins. Well we had a trip planned to California prior to my accident and the plan is to leave tomorrow morning. I have to say I've been a little anxious, scared and maybe a little fearful of all of the unknown that awaits me but I look forward to building some wonderful memories with my family and friends. So I cling to Gods promise that He will only give me what I can handle and that He will always be with me. We don't know what tomorrow holds but it does make it easier when we know that He's the one in control. Please be in pray for safety traveling that all will go well with the flights, for me as I transfer from plane to plane. Pray that I will continue to trust God for all my needs. That we will build great memories together. Psalms 121:1-8 Thanks to everyone for your love, support and encouragement. Hugs Sandra


  1. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed or broken because Jesus is with us where ever we go. We are perplexed, but we don't quit or give up because God never abandons us. We can get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going. The Lord is the strength of our lives so whom should we fear? He is our deliverer, healer,strengthener, comforter, wisdom and peace. We look to Him and rejoice that we glory in our tribulations so that the power of God might be revealed in us. No tribulation can separate us from God's love and on the contrary we are more than conquerors because of His love for us. His grace is sufficient to overcome every situation. Thanks you Lord for those periods of respite that you give giving this family, bless them in their trip.

  2. I am very impressed that you are still taking your trip! Where in Ca are you going? I am guessing So Cal. But if it is the San Francisco area, let me know and I would pop over to see you guys. Anyway... have a safe flight. I look forward to reading all about your experiences. God bless you guys. I continue to pray!

  4. So glad to hear you are going on your trip! If you are in San Diego on Sunday visit the Rock Church. We went this summer and it was great.

  5. Have a wonderful time and remember that 'God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind' He is with you on this vacation, so enjoy the journey, knowing that our Saviour is praying for you always, as are we.
    Make beautiful memories.....Val.
