Updates on my life!

Its another week and yet another post from me! It is just amazing how many people have told me they are reading my blog and keeping up with my progress. I appreciate each and everyone of you thinking of me and continuing to pray for my recovery. I know I do not post everyday, in fact I try to post once a week. I do not want my writings to become boring and mundane. I am sure you do not want to hear about what I had for breakfast and the latest movie I watched. I try to only post important progress or if I have a message to share with everyone. Please be patient with me and PLEASE continue reading, this is my ministry. One blessing that has happened since my accident is people actually LISTEN when I talk now! HAHA!
The reason for this blog site is not only to record my thoughts and emotions during this trying time but to show others that ANYTHING is possible! This blog is my story it is the way to reach people and for that I have been blessed. It is hard to find blessings in just a terrible accident but in ways I am lucky to have this platform to reach others! I didn't ask for this life, but its the hand I have been dealt. Ive never been a big folder in poker, so I guess I will just GO ALL IN! HAHA! This is the only life I have and it is the only thing that will define me. I have to use this life to the best of my ability and be an example to others. This accident has changed my life and given me a new outlook on what is important. I use to be so concerned with physical things and worried about the stupidest of things. However, my worries and concerns have vastly changed since I woke up in the hospital and was given a new life.
Please understand that I have NOT given up! I will NEVER give up no matter what until I walk again one day! It will happen, this is not an empty statement but a the truth! Faith is something that has to be tested! Right now....I am being tested like never before. I will not fail this test! With the help and prayers of others I will make it through this terrible tragedy and I will make a difference! Prayers are already been answered any my recovery has gone beyond medical science. No one can explain my progress....it is not suppose to happen, BUT IT IS! PRAISE GOD! Thank you all for your continued prayers and concerns on my progress!
THANK YOU ALL,
IN HIM,
BRENT

P.S. 5 posts is really excessive. I read each and every comment and LOVE receiving them . I was pumped to see that my comment number jumped from 3 to 8 in SUCH a short period of time. I logged on to read the 5 new comments only to find it was the SAME COMMENT! HAHA! Good one KB!

P.P.S. HANS! (there I wrote about you)

It's always great to see new posts. I check your blog daily waiting for more blessings. It's always wonderful to hear of your happening even the day to day stuff. Thanks for sharing!

P.S. Your blog is my 3 degrees of KB.
P.P.S. I guess that Mr. Clean was needing a little attention from the infamous Brent, kudos for giving it to him.

Way to Go Brent! You don't know me, but I have been reading your blog since your friends and family created it...I felt I finally needed to leave a comment, to tell you to keep the positive attitude and amazing testimony going! My husband and I are fellow Harding grads, and we know several of your friends there in Leesburg...The Reeds (Jon and Kim) and Brandon Harp. Small world? We live in Tampa and have been praying for your health and strength. God is so good and faithful. All the best, Brian and Wendy Leonard

Brent, It was good to see you at church today. We are always glad to see you join us at worship. Every time I see you I think about the miracles that have happened in your life and continue to happen. One day you will come walking in instead of riding. We are all praying for that time and we will try to be patient with you for that day.
