I Drove My Car this weekend for the first time in 5 years. I woke up on NewYear's Day 2007 with the powerful message that I would drive again this year. After an amazing week of prophetic proportions I got in my car on Saturday and drove around my neighbourhood. Sunday I drove on a country highway about 30 minutes total. It was painful but I will learn to live with the pain as it will not go away. This program and Sparkpeople and my lord Jesus are mighty helpful at giving people courage. Praise The Lord. My next goal is walking without a cane which I have already started practicing - if I get off balance oh well! I will just stumble. Let people think I am drunk who cares. I have also overcome embarrassment about my overheating. I now carry a mini portable fan with me and use it. I have been receiving many compliments and people find it funny so now I am surrounded by laughing people wherever I go. It is so nice to know that I can go out again without embarrasment.
