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!

wow a week already!

We had a great week enjoying the coast of California, it was uneventful as far as Sandra was concerned. We had this holiday planned before the accident and I am thankful we did because we most likely wouldn't have planned it after. It is a beautiful place to visit, great views and scenery. We went from San Francisco to San Diego doing most of the sites in between. It was a great time to connect as a family plus spend some time with friends. Although it was a great time together it was still difficult for sandra missing out on a few events (trolley cars in San Fran, beaches, kayaking etc...) and just life as it was. We are always "on" looking for accessible solutions, "where's the ramp", " is the rental car shuttle accesable", the days of winging it are on hold for a time things have to be planned out well.
This coming week will bring a few more firsts as I will be staying home from Detroit and Carla (Sandra's sister) will be going with her. We are confident things will go well but pray for a great week at rehab and continued progress. Mike


  1. We have followed you to California in thought and prayer and will continue to do so as Carla will take Mike's place this week in Detroit. May the God of all Hope be your source of comfort and peace....much love to both of you, Irene and Charles

  2. So glad that all went well last week in California. I will be praying for you all as Mike stays for his work and with the girls in Ottawa, and you and Carla have your trip to rehab. Enjoy your time together, as God travels with you both on yet another part of this journey you are in.
    Praying for all you've asked for and keeping you in my heart always......Val.

  3. Praying for continued progress at rehab and a great week for Sandra and Carla.
    So glad you had a good trip. I'm sure that you are all learning a huge dose of patience as you navigate through accessible and not so accessible areas of the world.
    I can't imagine how hard it is to not be able to do all the things you want to do Sandra - you are so full of life and bubbly and fun - I've never seen you back down from an adventure - so to not be able to ride the trolly or traverse the beach must be heart wrenching.
    I am praying for peace and comfort for you.
    Love Keri
