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!

So we made it back in the wee hours Sunday morning. Life is back to the full swing, work, meetings, Dr's appointments, etc..... We had a great time in Mexico, good friends, food and oh yes maid service with a choclate on my pillow at night pretty easy to get used to. Sandra's flight was interesting, it was booked before her acciedent so we didn't think it was a big deal for her and Emily to go on one flight, Jules and I took the milk run. Sandra and Emily arrived in Mexico only to realize that they are being dropped off in the middle of the tarmac with a full flight of stairs to get down. The lack of regulation worked to our benefit as a few mexican's just picked her up and carried her down. I'm thinking in Canada their may have been a few union and safety rules broken but it all worked our and just added to the adventure. Sandra is doing great on her FES bike, doing approximentally 10 miles/per day hopefully 4-5 times per week. It is a great workout for her, gets her heart rate, muscles going. We have our times where one of us is more positive than the other but I guess that is the beauty of marriage, we are truly there for each other and we will get through. Mike


  1. So glad to hear that you all had a good time in Mexico. That must have been something to see, being carried down those stairs. Angels working everywhere, I think.
    Praise God for your beautiful marriage and for the love you share. Your wedding vows certainly come to the surface again at a time like this. But God was with you when you made them, and he's with you now. Never leaving or forsaking you, and you can't break his promises by leaning on them.....so...lean away.
    You'll be in my heart and prayers every day....Val.

  2. Was just thinking about you all and praying for you this morning and then see a new blog post! So glad you had a wonderful time in the sun. I continue to pray for your peace and comfort and healing. Thinking of you all often, Keri

  3. Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus – 1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV Praying that God would reveal his love, compassion, healing, deliverance and be very real and close to you and your family until He answers your prayers. Keeping in faith for your healing. cbonhomme

  4. So glad to have a laptop again and be in touch! Just returned from Florida on Good Friday to celebrate Easter with family. He is risen, and there lies our ultimate hope. It's refreshing to see your gratitude for each improvement...Standing with you, as always, Irene and Charles
