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.

It's been a long time since I was here last. It seems like a whole other life has gone by. I have not felt very comfortable dealing with anything religious in quite sometime. At almost the exact same time God showed me incredible light and love, I was also shown how terribly painful this life can be. I have a sense of abandonment by God yet I know I would not have the gift of recovery without God's love. It is a strange place for me because I have always believed so strongly. Everyday is a true gift and I know I am not doing it on my own. I hope to find some peace soon, and this is a good place to start to find it.

"There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go
I never said thank you for that
Thought I might get one more chance
What would you think of me now
so lucky, so strong, and so proud?
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have the chance
And if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God wouldn't let it live
May angels lead yo in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in"

Take care of her Tom!

Hello Bonovox, Your message unlike others here has touched me because I understand your state of confussion. Everyday, and every path that is taken doesn't always make his love or even his existance clear. Just continue to believe...and your heart will see what your eyes and mind don't understand...if that makes any sense. I hope that you are well, I will keep you in my prayers.
You have more support than you will ever know.
Love, Kimmie

DEAR KIMMY;I know sometimes it might seem that GOD 'S LOVE OR EXISTANCE is not clear,but it ishoney,even when we think that HE isnt thre HE IS.AND like you ssaid you have to continue to believe,allow your heart to see what you dont understand.for GOD will give you the anwsers you need inside your heart.it is easy to feel confused ,as was with bonovox,and feel like your alone and the weight is too much to bear at times, that is when HE IS THERE THA MOST ,even when WE DONT THINK HE IS. MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOUFOR THE LOSS OF YOUR BROTHER AND FRO THE LOSS THAT BONOVOX FEELS ALSO .YALL ARE SO IN MY HEART AND PRAYERS.AND I THANKFUL THAT GOD GIVES US STRENGH TO CARRY ON AT TIMES , EVEN WHEN WE FEEL WE CANT .

Hi Kris ~ Wonderful News again! I'm happy to hear that your mom will be coming home. I'd try not to worry much. She seems to be doing much better. Have faith, all will be well. I will keep you both in my prayers. My mom is doing much better now. Thankyou for your prayers. You asked how my friend is doing, my friend is JBVM. She is the best friend anyone could ask for. I am very blessed for having her in my life. Ecspecially right after we lost Tommy, I didn't know if I could go on & she helped me to see that the strength in me had not faded but that I was actually stronger than ever. She always reminded me that no matter where we were or what we were doing that Tom was there having a great time with us. When I was feeling down, she was there to remind me that it's not over & that we will ALL be together again. ( Rainbow Bridge)
There is a post on this site called " a grieving mothers wish list" I'm not sure who left the post. It says basically please let me grieve & let the memory of my loved one live on. One of the requests is not to take down their pictures. JBVM & Spudds88 both have been wonderful. I went to BV's house last week & as soon as I walked into her room, there was Tommy smiling at me. She reminices with me of all the good times we had together. We did have a lot of great times too! BV never lets me forget those days & for that I am eternally grateful. Also, very pleased to see her back here. :) One of the most gifted writers I know, I have seen the prayers that she leaves here on all different sites across beliefnet. Right now, she may be confused & she has good reason. I would be lying to say that loosing Tommy didn't test my faith & still does. It's just so hard to understand why God chooses to take the very best people. Kim, BV & Spuds88 all help me to know that Tommy lives on through Us. All of you who post here, help me to know that Tom is doing the Lord's work & that maybe there was a reason why he had to leave us so soon. As much as I wish that horrible day could be erased from history & that Tommy could still be here making us laugh ..reminiscing about our childhood..( remember the lean mean green machine Kim? ) ..having an all debate with BV ( you two could go for hours! haha ) or telling us all the same story for the 10th time. ( we still loved it! ) lol As much as I want him here, I know that there had to be a reason. I believe that he is still helping people. I know he is alive inside of me, Kim, BV & Spuds as well as all who knew him & some who never did. I truly believe that he looks after all of us here on this site. And I know that his story will save others lives. Once, BV said to me "God needed an angel & who else would be better for the job?" How true. A heart of gold, compassionate & understanding he does make the perfect angel. BV, beautiful post in honor of a beautiful woman. I am sure he did meet her at Heaven's gate. They are probably having a debate right now. (lol) I am so proud of You. I admire your strength. Stay strong for You, and your angels. I am sure that they are even more proud of You than anyone. You are an inspiration in so many ways to so many people. I pray that you can find it inside you to share what you have lived, what you have learned so that others here may find their way to recovery. I know you already do that in other ways. If not here, I understand. Always in my heart & my prayers. Bookends. Love, Edge (Ren)

A prayer for the safety of an old friend. (BV, Kim, Spuds) .. Michelle to us. Topaz to those on this site. Last Time, I spoke with her she was using again, heavy. Unlike the way I dealt with Tom, I didn't have as much patience with Michelle & stopped talking to her. A lot of my reasoning was probably that I didn't want to loose someone else I loved to drugs. None of us have heard from her in over a year now so I would just like to ask Tommy if he could look over her. She may not have always done what Tom told her to do but she did have a lot of respect for him and cared for him. And she knew he was telling her to do what was right.
Lord, I pray that Michelle is in a good place. Please protect her and help her to find peace. Help her to find happiness. Let her know she is loved. No matter where she may be now, keep her safe. Amen

Quigley, I just want to take a minute and say that I not only have faith in You but that I am also proud of You. You have taken the first step and that is the hardest. (What is the saying?) Even the longest journey starts with just one small step. You coming here and praying for help with recovery is a step in the right diirection. I have the twelve steps here ( Thanks BV.. knew it would come in handy) Step 1 is "admitting we are powerless over alcohol- that our lives have become unmanageable." Step 2 "Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity" Step 3 " Made a decison to turn our lives over to God as we know him" Step 4 "Made a searching and fearless inventory of ourselves" Step 5 "Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs" Step 6 "Were entirely ready to have God remove all the defects of character" Step 7 "Humbly ask him to remove our shortcomings" I have seen you do all this just on this site. I know you can quit when you're ready. And it sounds as if you are. So, I pray that the Lord guides You in the direction you are already headed. I ask that He gives you strength. Everyone, deals with addiction, recovery, sobriety different. BA has her O'dulls. Tommy wanted to quit smoking cigarettes so he walked around for a year with an unopen Marlboro Reds in his pocket. Some people find strength through prayer, some rehab, some counseling, some AA meetings. I left that Today prayer mainly with You in mind. Whatever happens today, Tomorrow starts a new day. Don't regret yesterday rather look forward to tomorrow. ( a sober tomorrow) I believe you have the strength inside You. I know that when you are ready you will quit. After all, You do have some wonderful friends in your corner (wink-wink) Just kidding. But You do have us. :) Hope you are enjoying your weekend in the sun!

BettyAnne, hope that you are enjoying your weekend boating as well. Very inspiring words in your last post. Thankyou. I didn't realize just how much alcohol did affect your life. It seems to be much happier and more peaceful now that you are sober. It's nice to see such a positive change. Stay Strong. God Bless Love, Renee

Kimmie~ Thanks for posting for BV. Thanks for letting her know that you are there for her. What you said made sense to me. It's so hard when your heart & your head just don't agree. Like I said, I know Tommy is doing great things now. More than he could ever do here yet I want him here. Selfish? prbably but he was one cool guy. I never imagined him not being a part of our family, our lives. My head still keeps saying how come? why? why so young? Why Him? & then my heart steps in and tells me that he is still very much so a part of our lives.Tommy is inside all of us who loved him. The love we have for him will never fade & as long as we keep him in our hearts his memory will never fade either. A great Man, A perfect Angel.
I never did hear from you. I hope to soon. Ronnie has been on the computer at night so you may have tried & got a busy signal. If you have a chance e-mail or call. Give the kids a hug for me. Hope to talk to you soon. Love You, Renee

Hi Kris, Renee,Quigley...Hope everyone is doing good..Kris I'm sorry your so tired.Hope your health improves soon and you get more energy. Quigley hope your weekend went good. I failed on Friday night.At the concert they had no non-alcohol and I hate pop...I ended up drinking 6 beers from 5pm-11pm and felt like crap the next day( since I havent drank for 1 month)plus b'f and me argued again.I realized there is NO WAY I can ever drink, my body cant take it and I become a mean person. We went back last night to Lover Boy and I had a much better time, I drank water only. Oh Dear Lord, I pray for us all suffering from addicitions that we may continue to stay strong, Sober, healthy. I pray we may not fall into the trap of the Devils hands, I pray you keep the Angles watching over us and keep us free from evil desires.I pray we can overcome any Temptations in any situations, In Jesus name I pray,
AMEN....Quigley, I pray you loose the desire totally and find inner peace within yourself so you dont need the booze.The one night I did drink wasnt worth it again, aruging with b'f hungover etc..Its just a trap, a no end situation..Stay strong and God will help.I have faith in you, believe me if I can do it anyone can do it.We can do anything in Christs name, Renee I loved your poem you wrote earlier, hope all is going well for you and you find much joy in you and your familys life..Talk to you all soon,
God Bless,

I DO PRAAY FOR YOUR STRENGH TO CONTINUE. DEAR LORD ; I COME IN PRAYER FOR BETTYANN. I COME IN ASKING THATR YOU WILL JUST BE HER STRENGH, BE THE ANWSER THAT NEEDS TO THE QUESTIONS SHE MAY HAVE. LET HER NOT FALL INTO THAE TRAPS THAT SO MANY HAVEFALLEN INTO SO MANY TIMES . LET HER KNOW THAT YOU ARE THERE TO ATCH OVER HER,AND SHELTER AND KEEP HER EVER IN YOUR WATCHFUL CARE. LORD , I PRAY THAT YOU WILL JUST TAKE ALL THESE ADDICTIONS THAT HAVE WEIGHED HER FOR SO LONG ALL AWAY, TAKE THEM TO THE NEAREST SEA AND WSH THEM ALL AWAY.DEAR LORD ; PRAY THAT YOU WILL RESTORE IN HER A CLEAN AND RENEWNESS OF HEART. I PRAY THAT YOU TAKE AWAY THE ANGER THAT COMES BETWEEN HER AND HER BOYFRIEND AT TIMES AND LORD RENEW A LOVE THERE THAT ONLY YOU CAN. IN ALL THIS I ASK AND PRAY IN YOUR PRECIOUS HOLY, IN JESUS 'S NAME I PRAY. AMEN.ECCLESIASTESII:I,7,9-10:CAST THY BREAD UPON THE WATERS:FOR THOU SHALT FIND IT AFTER MANY DAYS. TRULY THE LIGHT IS SWEET, AND A PLEASANT THING IT IS FOT THE EYES TO BEHOLD THE SUN:REJOICE.DANIEL4:3-HOW GREAT ARE HIS SIGNS!!!!AND HOW MIGHTYARE HIS WONDERS!HIS KINGDOMIS AN EVERLASTINGKINGDOM, AND HIS DOMINION IS FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.AMEN &AMEN.DONT LET THIS ONE SET BACK KEEP YOU FROM THE GOOD WORK , GOD HAS BEEN DOING IN YOU.

Kris,
Thank you so much for your inspirational words, I found myself crying as I read them.This came to my memory as I read your words~~~~~"Take your life one day at a time. Whether staying away from a drink or conducting any other activity in life, DON'T LET YESTERDAY OR TOMOROW DISTRACT YOU FROM WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY",
God grant me the serenity(today)
To accept the things I cannot change(today)
The courage to change
THe things I can (today)
And the wisdom TOday to know the difference.Thanks for you great encourging words, and prayers. I truly believe I will be fine. That was a small test and one I failed but yet one which made me stronger, because now I no not even 1 drink is worth the trouble and the pain getting drunk causes. I truly enjoy life being Sober and can handle stress alot better w/o the booze.Im glad that God gave me such a supportive, loving man..and one thats not a drunk...heheheheheheheh...I am so glad that I can go back and trust God with all my problems and insecurties and he takes care of me and loves me just the same. Sometimes to those in here life doesnt seem fair, like Death, losses, struggles but God always has a reason and a better plan for us all. I just praise him that this site came available to me and made me open my eyes up and really see and be thankful for what I do have NOW..Gods bless all
Love Bettyann

Good morning, Kris, Renee & BA

Thanks for all of your prayers and emails - hope you all had a good weekend.
Mine went pretty well, except I did drink Saturday and I feel kind of bad because
at times I wasnít very patient with my daughter - she is very slow and not the
typical 8 year old and I get so frustrated with her. I pray I can learn to be a more
patient, understanding mother and person - with my daughter, my boyfriend and
his son. My boyfriendís son really takes a toll on my patience too - he gets so
angry and hits his dad and yells at him in public - itís really embarassing - I pray I
can help somehow but Iím not quite sure what to do. And then there is my
boyfriend who is still dealing with his exwife - and Iím trying my best to be paitent
with him until he gets over his bitterness towards her. So between the three of
them and my own issues of trying to get myself to trust this guy - it was a trying
weekend but I think we all still had fun.

Sorry to hear about your off night and the fight with your boyfriend BA - I know
youíll pick yourself back up and start fresh. Iím praying for you to stay strong and
stay away from the alcohol. I completely understand - Iím sure you know that.

I hope you got some rest this weekend Kris - thanx for the email addresses - it
sounds like you have had a lot of things happen to you in your life - I think itís
great how you have overcome it all - I really admire that - Iím sure being a

way thank you for pointing that out - and I know Iíve said this before but Iím
really thankful to have this site to come to and all of you praying for me - what
would I do without you all??!!

having a great day. You are all in my prayers & my heart - God Bless

pray that I can let down my guard and give 100% to Bís and my relationship.

Quigley,
What type of work do you do if you dont mind me asking? This may be a trail to see how you handle stress and drink?? You need to be first strong for yourself before you can possible be strong for your boyfriend and his problems. If we dont love ourselves completely just the way God made us( which took me years to finally like myself) then we cant possible give our Love to another. Dont get me wrong, I hope things work out but God want YOU to get yourself together before things get better. ANother way of not dealing with the truth and problems is to put the focus on anothers problems( such as b'f and ex) etc...then it takes your mind off your own problems and they never get taken care of. BE STRONG FIRST FOR YOURSELF..THEN GOD WILL WORK EVERYTHING OUT.Thanks for your prayers, and yes Im back on track, still not drinking, just drank water at the 2nd concert and have been drinking ice tea nightly. I will continue to pray for you, as Kris says when one door closes another opens..I find out this Thursday if my loan will be approved for school. Oh Dear Lord I pray this happens( if it be your will for me).Im looking so forward to a much happier life, more fullfilling and enriching. When I was always drunk and hungover I hated myself, life etc..I was just on Robot going through the daily motions..Now I LIVE life and do more things and appreciate the things God has out there..Kris and Renee hope your doing find and feeling ok.Have a good week you all and I will be thinking about you in my thoughts and prayers,
Peace@Love,
Bettyann

Hi Bettyann,

I am a paralegal for a big law firm. So, yes youíre probably right a lot of my stress
comes from there. My problem is that I make good money doing this and I donít
know how else I would support myself and my daughter. Iím sure drinking hasnít
been helping me focus on my job. I thought maybe that was a wake up call and
would help me stop partying, I donít know. Thank you for your prayers - it was
really hard to walk in to the office today and be nice to the one boss who is giving
me all this trouble. Iím glad things are back on track for you. Have to be quick
today - donít want to get in trouble - Hope you have a good day - God Bless

Please Lord, help Bettyann obtain her loan so that she can go back to school and
please help her to stay clean and sober. I pray she finds peace and happiness
without alcohol as I do for myself. And Lord please be with me today and help
me to focus on my work and not make mistakes. And Lord please help B to keep
from getting so down and depressed about his situation. Please help him to see a
way out of this mess and motivate him to do the right thing. Amen

jerjuan - I'm sorry I did not mean to skip over you - my prayers are with you and your family and that you can be there for each other and that the Lord keep you both strong and away from the places where drugs and alcohol are plentiful. God Bless.

Hello BA, Kris, Renee & all - haven't seen Kris or Renee on here all day - hope all is well. My boss & supervisor took me in his office today and told me I needed to be more focused and that they would give me a month to change things. Talk about pressure. Please pray for me that if I meant to keep this job I will because I'm worried what I would do if I didn't have it. Oregon's economy and job situation is pretty bad and right now I'm one of the blessed ones to have a good job. Hope everyone has a peaceful night - I'm signing off for today - 10 hour day and my fingers are tired. God Bless

A Prayer for Healing

Lord,
You invite all who are burdened
to come to You.

Allow your healing hands to heal me.

Touch my soul with your compassion
for others.

Touch my heart with your Courage
and infinite love for all.

Touch my mind with your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim your praise.

Teach me to reach out to You in my
time of need, and help me to lead others to You by example.

Most Loving heart of Jesus, bring me
health in body and spirit that I may
serve You with all my strength.

Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. Amen
