First of all, no I have not wrecked the van!  In fact, the driving has been going quite well. (Click here to see the hand controls.) All of my work and meetings are in Houston, so I spend most of my driving time on the freeways here.  There is a certain stretch of road on I 10 here in Houston that goes under two major freeways  (I 45 and 59 for those of you in the know).  It is so funny  Every time I make it under these the freeways without veering into another lane, I expect everyone driving around me to smile at me and applaud.  I seem to forget that to them I'm just another car on road. 

I met a young 18 year old man named Chris who had been in a car accident and received the same injury as myself.  It is amazing how relative things are.  Unfortunately, he has no movement of his shoulders or arms.  Because of this, his world is quite different than mine.  Whereas I can drive a car and do many things by myself, Chris will need help doing virtually everything.  Of course, Christopher Reeves would say at least he's not on a ventilator.  The interesting point is:  if we think we have it better than someone else then we do; if we think we have it worse, then that's true as well.  Our perception is our reality.  As for Jill and I, we consider ourselves blessed and in great favor with the Lord.  He has poured his favor on our home and will continue to do so in the future.  I encourage everyone to speak these types of blessings over your life as well.  Changing your reality is as easy as changing your perception .

Quite a few of you have asked about the testimony that I will be giving in church.  I don't know the date yet but will be sure to send out an e-mail when I do know.  It also looks like I'll be giving that same testimony up in Tyler, Texas sometime soon.  I will email that date as well.  On this same topic, many of you have had your organizations and churches praying for us.  Please let me know if there is any interest in having me give my testimony.  Jill and I are forever grateful to those of you that have been with us this through this ordeal and would like to give back to you, your families, and your churches.

Luke 10:41-42, "You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Choose what is better and it will not be taken from you."

Correction from last month:  Jeremiah 10:23 I know, Oh Lord, that a mans life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps."
