Thomas W. Glenn Jr.
Tommy was a wonderful man. He was charming, intelligent, charismatic and good-hearted. He could always put a smile on your face.


This prayer circle is for all of those who are suffering from the disease of addiction, dealing with a family members addiction, or those of us who have lost a loved one to addiction. In loving memory of Tommy. September 2,1975-January 27,2001. God Bless


This prayer circle is in memory of Thomas W. Glenn Jr. Tommy was an intelligent, articulate, charming and good-hearted young man. His life ended short at the young age of 25. A true genius, the things he could have achieved if given the chance. On a cold Januay morning he passed away from "bad heroin". His family and loved ones miss him desperately and need prayers. Also, in honor of Tommy the prayers are being said for all of those suffering from the disease drug addiction, families dealing with addiction and loved ones of those who have passed on due to addiction. Tom was a conquerer, if this could beat him...it could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.

WE LOVE YOU TOM!!!

Tom, you are in the Lords hands now and one day we will meet again For now, I pray for you all the peace and happiness in heaven.

Hi ALL,
I didnt get the loan but thanks. I applied for one and won't no for 7-10 days. They told me I made too much money to get a pell grant, so I applied for 8000$ thru the goverment that I would pay back 6 months after I graduate( but thats ok)...as long as it works out for me to go to school and help others at a Doctors office, that would make me completely happy with this new career :-) I hope Kris your health gets better..You are a very strong person and very special and helpful to many. Renee, you are also great and appreiciate all of you in here and your prayers. I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July. We are going out to dinner then at 10pm watching the fire works then boating all day saturday( but I will have my O'duls while the rest drink real beer)...hahahahaha..PRAISE JESUS...Life is good and I enjoy soo many different things now that Im sober, esp helping others and being strong for others. You get such gratification in Knowing that 1 person was helped bye a testimony..God does wonderful miracles. I never was this strong in re- hab as I am now with you guys and God in my life. I continue to pray daily for you all and want the very best for you all. In Jesus Name, I Pray Dear Lord you touch all the above seeking your guidance and much needed prayers, I pray you protect them, heal them, Love them and guide them on the right path, In Jesus name,
AMEN....God Bless all,
LOve in Christ :-)

hi everyone, It seems everyone is doing well. :) Bettyanne, sorry you didn't get the loan. I misunderstood in the last post. I see you didn't let it discourage you though and that's wonderful. I am sure that all will work out for the best. I hope the second loan comes through for you soon. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. It sounds like a great time!
Kris, so much wonderful news! Glad to hear that you are feeling better and that all went well with your mom. Great news, about your brother! You'll have to keep us updated so we can say "hey, that's Kris's brother on the radio/ T.V."! You must be so proud. I'm so happy for you.
You are all in my heart & prayers always. God Bless. Love, Ren

Hello all,

Well, ended up in Reno instead of Vegas because we missed our flight - someone was in a car accident outside my boyfriend's shop and he helped them until the ambulance showed up - so we had to drive to Reno but we had a great time. I did end up drinking some.. thanks for your prayers everyone - one day at a time - i know. My boyfriend is going to court this morning and he actually asked me to write on this site and pray for him. I've never known him to be like that so I think that is a good sign so will everyone pray that the judge treat him fairly and make the right decision? His life is in such turmoil and his ex would not let him have his son last night because he was late picking him up.

I pray today Lord that you can hellp me to focus on my job and to do a good job. I pray you can keep me going on the right path - the path you would choose to have me follow. I pray for all of you ladies on this site - You're very strong Bettyann - I admire your willpower - I'll pray that you can keep it up - Kris, I'd like to check out your brother's web site that's pretty cool - you sound like his #1 fan - what a sweet sister. Boss is coming - will write and pray later - God bless .

HEYQuigley, you know when i read your mail, at first the thing that came to my mind was GOD had sent a detour,to delay yall from going to las vegas, because that was'nt no coincedence,right outside the shop where your boyfriend worked, because of the kind act that he done by staying and helping in such a terrible sitution,yall missed the flight to las vegas.i do believe in someway, GOD was allowing that to happen to keep yall from making that flight,through this tragedy,missing this flight ,count it as a blessing , because GOD had a reason why HE did not want yall to make thAT flight.and i said, im still not giving yp on the fact that i know and believe that you are going to be able to one day ,look at a drink and just wanta put it down forever and wonder why you ever allowed yourself to never quit sooner.i so believe in you Quigley that you can do this, BUT do you believe in YOURSELF .?I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS.AND YOU RIGHT,ONE DAY AT A TIME,MAKE EVERYDAY COUNT TOTHE FULLEST.we're not promised tomorroms,but we do have our todays.and noone is perfect,we all fall short of the GLORY OF GOD,but is'nt it wonderful that HE LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HEKNOWS THAT AND HE LOVES US JUST THE SAME.Iam always going to be here for you.i'm gonna say a prayer for yoour boyfriend and anytime you need to talk or write,my addresses,emails,#is on here.go to anyone of those emails.here is mark's address, where you can go to hear him, you can sign his guest book.let me know what yall think of it.MP3.COM.MARKLELAND ARTIST JENA,LA.YOU ARE LOVED,YOU MEATTER,YOUARE SOMEBODY.LOVEYOU,ALWAYSIN CHRIST JESUS,KRIS.

Hello Kris,Renee,Quigley,
Hope all are doing well and are continuely in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there Quigley, I didnt start drinking and becoming a drunk over night just as I couldnt quit overnight. I tried a re-hab last year and stayed Sober for about 3 weeks then started slowly drinking again thinking only 3 beers or 2 glasses of wine would be ok, until it became a nightly ritual..This is why I try soooooo hard now to totally stay away from booze, because 2 or 3 isnt enough then I smoke when I drink, it goes hand in hand..It's hard still but I seem to be able to just pray and loose the desire when the temptation arises, and when it does I drink O'duls when Im around people drinking, other than that I drink a gallon of tea at night...hahahahhah..Just keep asking for Gods help and BELIEVE ME..he will come to your rescue when he feels your ready..Never give up, he always is bye our side..we just need to give ALL our problems to him since we are to weak to deal with things ourselves( believe me I no)..I had to learn to like myself, love myself so I could give up the booze. I wasnt happy when I was drinking and I didnt like the person I was becoming, calling in sick lots with hangovers, smoking a pack of cigs a day, fighting all the time with my Fiance...Since I have quit we havent gotten into 1 fight yet PRAISE JESUS...in fact he hardly ever drinks now, only a few beers on the boat on weekends so now we get along much better:-)Sometimes God puts us thru trials and tribulations to strengthen us, whey I dont no, but I do no at 39 this is the first time Iv'e ever said NO to alcohol since I was 16..He can do miracles..We may fall and stumble caz none of us is perfect but he is always there to lift us back up.I cant say I will NEVER have a drink or cig again, caz Im not perfect..But I do no for NOW it's been my number 1 priority to stay Sober and I have and feel 100% better health wise..I wish you more energy Kris and great health. Renee hope all is well for you and you have Peace in your heart. Tommy is alive in spirit and I think watching over all of us and helping all of us in addiction..Praise God you started this site.I care so much for you all so deeply and love hearing your stories. Hope you have a great week and good things come your way.God bless,
Bettyann

Hello all - thank you Kris and Bettyann - You have no idea how much it means to me for you both to be praying and believing in me - Renee, I hope all is well with you - I can never express my gratitude to you - I'm grateful that you guys believe in me because I'm losing faith in myself - I am very down this morning - I'm irritable, cranky and hung over and disgusted with myself. I'm afraid I am going to drive my new boyfriend away because I am scared because I'm starting to care for him a lot and I have been drinking more and more - he drinks too but very conservatively and last night I ended up drinking till 1:00 and I had to work at 7:30 this morning and I said all of these mean things to him - he told me this morning that I hurt his feelings so bad and that he doesn't understand why I'm drinking so much - I don't either - what am I doing? I'm scared he will hurt me like the last guy - isn't that dumb? So - what do I do - try to make him leave me so I don't get too attached - am I nuts? I'm so confused - I know it will pass - just a bad day, I need your prayers more than ever today - love you all

HEART OF MATTER;
THE HEART PUTS A BARRIER AND A SHELL
AROUND THE INNER WALL OF ITS SELF.
SOMEHOW TO PROTECT AND HELP IT TO HEAL.
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO ALLOW THE HEART;TO GO FREE,ANDALLOW FOR IT TO FEEL.

A HEART THAT ONCE HAS BEEN BROKEN , CAN BE MENDED ONCE AGAIN.
WITH LOVE THE PIEACES CAN BE HEALEED ,IF YOU ALLOW IT TO ENTER IN.
SOMETIMES YOU HAE TO TAKE A CHANCE
LET YOUR HEART AND SOUL DANCE.
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO LET THE HEART GO FREE.
SO IT CAN PURSUE THE HEART'S DESTINIES.
SO IT CAN FIND IT'SLOVE AND HOLD IT , CHERISH IT,TREASURE AND MEASURE THE GROWTH.
TO NOT BE AFRAID OF LETTING GO;TO JUST SET THE HEART INSIDE A GLOW.
WE HOLD THE PIEACESOF A HEART THAT WERE BROKEN.
SO TIGHTLY INSIDE INSIDE AND LEAVE WORDS UNSPOKEN.
BUT THERE COMES A TIME,WHEN YOU MUST LEAP AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
FOR THOSE PIEACES THAT ONCE WERE TORN APART;
ARE NOW WAITINGFOR LOVE TO BEGIN A NEW START.7-09-03WRITTEN IN DEDICATION TO QUIGLEY .LOVE ALWAYS,KRIS.

Quigley, Dont be down on yourself. You are drinking more now caz you remind me of when I used to do that. You dont want to deal with the feelings your experiencing , fear, love, scared, alone, confused, etc...so its easier to just drink and get drunk then hopefully tomorrow will be better and you will forget your problems..NOT...the problem is it will still be there, all the problems. Whatever your circumstance, you cannot let those"reasons" become "excuses". Easy or Hard,if you remain imprisoned in self-denial, then days, weeks, months, years will continue to be wasted.It's your life and the clock is ticking. Your life is not a dress rehearsel(dr.Phil)..Is today a perfect example? THink about it. Like so many other days, it is now over and lost forever. Whatever you did or didnt do, felt or didnt feel, suffered or reveled in, shared or didnt share, it's done.You can start a Journey to a better, more fullfilling life..Just keep praying and ask yourself what is scaring you and why you are drinking to not feel? It really helps to right a journal. Hang in there. You can do it, you will do it, but YOU NEED GOD'S HELP. YOU CANT DO IT ALONE...We are all here for you..If this man is meant to be God will work it out.God Bless always, hang in there

Today

What do you think,
as you start each new day?
When you open your eyes,
what do you say?
Today is a day
like none of the rest
it gives you a chance
to be at your best,
Some seem so happy,
so bright
and so gay.
This is the time
when all goes my way.
In a blink of a moment,
you look back at the past.
The times were hard
but, flew by you so fast.
Today is a day
just like all of the rest.
But one thing is different,
You're still at your best.
For all of the good,
the happy and the sad,
You can still look back
at the times you've had.
You might want to laugh.
You might want to cry.
Just don't loose the feeling
You shine in God's eyes.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Dear Kris & Bettann,

Thank you both for being there and your prayers and support. I am feeling much, much better today. Kris, No, I didn't know your story and I'm very sorry that happened to you. I can't imagine anyone being able to do such a horrible thing to another person - you are so strong for pulling through that and having the attitude that you do. I apologized to my guy and you are right, I am caring a lot for this person and I wasn't quite expecting that since I just came out of a 5 year relationship 6 months ago. So, I'm going to try and get over that fear - he has definitely got a lot of his own problems with his ex-wife, son and court but I just pray I can stay strong for him because I know he needs me there for him just like I need his support with the not drinking. We are going to Lake Shasta this weekend with the kids and I pray I can be the person I really am inside and not go off the deep end again.

BA - Thanks for your advice - my boyfriend asked me the same thing - he wanted to know what I was hiding from and why I felt I had to drink so much - it hurt his feelings because he thought I had to drink like that to be with him which is not the case. The truth is is that I'm not sure why - except that I don't feel really comfortable around people until I have had a couple drinks and then my problem is I don't want to stop at just a couple. I'll keep trying - you sound like you're doing great - keep up the good work.

Dear Lord,

I pray that I can overcome my fear of caring for B and I pray that if we are meant to be we can both work together at helping each other through our problems. I pray that I don't ever act the way I acted the other night again. Please keep my tongue from lashing out and saying cruel hurtful things and help me to learn not to drown myself in an alcohol stupor. Please help me to learn how to embrace life sober. Help me to focus on my job today and to do a good job - please give me strength to listen to B's problems and to let him lean on me when he needs to. Help me to listen to you and live my life the way you want me to amen

Hi all,
Hotter than heck :-) Going boating this weekend as it is 95 and very hot.Quigley, hope you have a good weekend. I totally understand your story.I didnt like to be around people inless I first drank a few, but like you a few wasnt enough..kept going and going till I was a fallen drunk with a very bad foul mouth...I come from an alcoholic home so I suppose when I was drunk and things didnt go my way I always used harmful and hurtful words to my boyfriend.The next day I felt so bad( that which I could remember)..He always said I dont no why you get this way when you drink..WELL...It's the alcohol..some people can drink and others get mean and drunk like us, so we are NOT meant to drink. It takes time but life is just as fun w/o the booze. I'm going to a concert tomorrow first time Sober,,hehehheeheheh so this ought to be a new experience for me..Just ask and you shall recieve..You no deep down that you have a problem with booze so you just need to TRY to give it up totally..Dont fool yourself like I did thinking well just 2 or 3 will be ok this time..caz eventually its nightly and more to feel the buz!!!!.I enjoy O'duls now, it taste like beer but no alcohol in it..It will get easier trust me. I had a bad day today, went with my mom to the casino and lost 75$..wanted to go bye beer on the way home,,but kept telling myself now where will that get me if I drink 4 or 5 beers? IN TROUBLE AGAIN...so it( the desire) finally left me and I came home said a prayer and made ice coffee. There will be times when you want to drink but just tell yourself it wont solve anything and only get you into trouble and make things worse. I will continue to pray for you all..Like I said, God does things in his own timing..I prayed last year to quit and never did, now this year I almost lost everything, boyfriend, house, job, dogs the things that mean alot to me all over 1 lousy night out partying with a girlfriend and getting home at 3am and causing a fight with my b/f and hitting him.Well needless to say, I was mad he kicked me out for good the next day but look what has happened since..GOD has turned things around for me in more ways that one. We get along great now, Im hopefully going back to school in Sept for Medical asst as long as the loan goes thru and life is good Sober..It will happen for you, have faith, trust and just keep praying and never give up..Soon the desire will go away when GOd thinks you can handle it. God bless to you all and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, I will talk soon,
