Chevrolet Miracles, by Frances Allan

With much difficulty, two mighty companions brought my car to me  in Mexico from Utah. It would be primarily for community use. I have found it is no longer practical for me to own a car.  I have had to rely on others to help me with all my logistics. I felt it was time to pass it on to the community here, so I stated my decision to donate it. This felt guided and I experienced great relief at this decision. The car began to be used by the community.

The next morning I prayed about it and felt deep inner forgiveness about trusting and betrayal. Then I was prompted to go look in the car. I walked outside, looked inside, and the stain was gone!  Only three small spots were there! A miracle!! Maybe the big stain had been an hallucination. The true miracle was that I experienced healing of the guilt I had felt about my seeming betrayal of loved ones in the past. I heard the words from the Course:  “You can neither betray nor be betrayed”.  These beautiful words restored my peace.

The second Chevrolet miracle occurred around the need to re-permit the car so it could stay in Mexico.  The only way I was told to get a new permit was to drive the car, with me its owner, to the border motor vehicle registration place and back, a two-day trip.  I was in terror and totally resistant to making the trip with no cell phone, no Spanish and knowing the border towns were all in turbulence with drug “traficantes.”

IMG_1715I prayed to Spirit for help. Then our neighbor, Gustavo, told us there was another way. He introduced us to a government official who could do the car registration through his office, saving time, money and hassle!  Hallelujah!! The car has a new owner, and will soon have Mexican license plates. Now the car is safely in the stewardship of the community, for the benefit of the whole!

I am blessed writing this blog, as all parts of this story have been healing for me.

I love you!
