A marathon runner will utter or moan “Just one more mile.”
A friend, Jesus, who is in our Friday morning Bible study at Panera often shares, in his journey with cancer, ‘just one more chemo treatment!”
Endurance is the patience which never gives up hope, keeps on moving, one step at a time.
Patience is long-suffering because it looks beyond the present difficulties and trials.
Terry Hannigan Vereline is a former Army sergeant and Vietnam veteran.
She made history earlier this month by becoming the first paralyzed competitor to successfully finish a marathon with the help of a robotic exoskeleton. She completed the New York City Marathon by walking the entire 26.2 miles over the course of three days.
“Don’t give up,” she said in an interview. “The things that I did prior to me being paralyzed, I can still do. It’s just finding another way of doing it.” She is grateful to those who helped her use her exoskeleton to fulfill her dream.
