    Hi Michelle,
    We are very excited for you and Mike and all to have him home. Our prayers remain steadfast on your behalf. We went to our church service on Thanksgiving Day and I was inspired by the message. Our pastor was talking about how genuinely hard it is for so many to offer up thanksgiving after the loss of a spouse, or other loved one, or many other tragedies during this past year, but his message was on 3 things everyone can be genuinely thankful for no matter what life has brought our way and they are as follows:
    1. Our lives matter, because God created us with a purpose, and therefore our lives are meaningul.
    2. We can all be grateful for the friends we have to share life’s journey with us.
    3. God offers us His grace (unmerited favor).
    I am thankful, Michelle, that you already display knowledge of these thoughts on a daily basis. I am thankful for God’s grace in your life, and that your friends help carry you and Mike in so many ways, and that His purposes are being carried out by you all as we speak. Praise God. May you and Mike stay strong as you adjust to being home together, enjoying all that this most blessed season offers. Much love, Sharon

    Hello Michelle and Michael:

    I am also thankful for your second homecoming. In football terms, it is like the second half of the game. The first half was rough – the game plan we had worked hard on did not work. We were playing catch up every play.

    But now we have a new half. We still have an adjusted game plan but we have “home field” advantage! We have to stick to the fundamentals! We have to dig deep, for the first half took a lot out of us. We have to play the game one play at a time. We will lose some ground but we must keep after it and never, ever, ever get discouraged. Why? Because of what the Coach said at half time.

    “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses [the fans in the stands and those who read this web site!], let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:1-3

    “But how, coach? How can we win, with so much opposition? It isn’t fair! ”

    “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke [ my game plan for you] upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matt. 11:28-30

    Hang in there Michelle and Mike. The stands are full! The cheering is thundering. The evil one is shaking in his boots because he thought he had you. HA! He does not know how deep the roots go! He will lose again. Hang in there! Push it! Rest in it! Fight the good fight! This is HIS house!

    Bless you,
