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.

Bettyann~~
I know what you mean about going to a prison!It would be awful to have to live like that!! I pray for those in our prisons, that they may be forgiven, and find Jesus, and the peace and transformation that only HE can bring.
Hope you have a good weekend ( in between the lines: no drinking!).I pray that you continue to drink the O'Dulls! Better than the real thing!!
Father I thank you for BA. I thank You for being her help. I ask Lord, that she continue to turn things and her life over to You. That You keep her in Your loving arms, and protect her. Give her the strength to turn away from the booze, and the lifestyle it brings. Help her to recieve Your joy Lord, and Your peace in her life.All these things I ask in Jesus Name. Amen
Hang in there BA. God can move mountains if we get out of His way and just LET Him!!
Love and prayers,
Cindy

Renee~~ What a friend you are! God has blessed you richly. He has taught you that a tragedy CAN be turned into something possitive, and that seeking his will, He will show you how to do it, and give you the strength for it. God bless You for just BEING. God bless you for letting his will be done in your life. For helping others through your loss, that ones life doesn't have to be in vain. For helping others in there time of need. For having a place to go when they feel that they are all alone, or that no one understands what their life is like, or what they are going through. For people to be led here, so they CAN find the comfort, and friendship they so long for, For the acceptence they find here. You have done a wonderful thing here through your own personal hurt.God has given you the strength, the courage, the faith, and the love to do this. You are truly His vessel.I thank God for you Renee.
Father in Heaven,
I thank You for Renee, and what she has done here. Thank You for letting her reach out to others that they may be helped, and that they may be led to You Lord through here. There are some that may never have known of You and Your love God, if it were not for this site. Continue to bless Renee Lord. Guide her, give her strength, courage, and love to carry on what You have given her to do. Be her shelter when the storms of life come her way. Help us all Lord to seek Your will for our lives, and give us all the courage to carry out Your will in our lives. Thank You Lord, for her cuz Tommy, that his life is being used for Your will, and that through his life, others are helped and led to You. What a wonderful thing You God have done in Tommys life!!

Good Morning Everyone!
I still do not come to this site without tears pouring down my face. You guys have no idea what you all mean to me! Your kind, and loving words, your friendship, I thank God for all of you guys, everyday! Also, for letting me learn to type through tears! hahaha!
I hope you have all had good weekends, and am anxious to hear about them. I spent my weekend with 3 of my grandchildren. Two of the girls, and my grandson. He even got to spend the night with me on Saturday!!!! The girls stayed Fri,Sat, & went home Sun. about 6 P.M. It was great! I so enjoy them! My grandson getting to spend the night is rare(UNLESS She is going to party!).
When he does, I know at least for that night he doesn't have to go through all the yelling, and breaking things, and all the negetive crap he lives in daily. Thank you all for your continued prayers for them. If it were not for GOD'S PROTECTION, I really believe there have been times when he would have been hurt. I KNOW there have been. Thank You Jesus!!!!
Kris, I am so happy to see you are up to posting! BA, thank you for your prayers, and kind words.
To ALL of you: I love you all in Christ, and thank Him daily for you. I ask God every time I come here, to direct my words, and for the Holy Spirit to guide me. So Praise God for answered prayers. I BELIEVE there is POWER in prayer. I have seen many miriacles in my life, and there have been many, many, many answered prayers in my life, that I can praise God for, and has made a testominy for me. HE truly IS my refuge, and my shelter, and my ALL.
Father,
I thank You for another day, that I may be led of You to do what You would have me do. I pray that I will be still, and know whatever it is that You would ask of me. I pray for all of my dear friends here, that You be with each and every one of them in their daily trials, and temptations. That they seek first what You would have in their lives. I pray that I do the same. Thank You Father for Your protection, and love, and grace. Thank You for prayers answered, that are not seen yet by us. Thank You for Faith. Thank You for creating each of us. Help us to all appreciate that, and realize that Lord.Thank You for Your son Jesus Christ, that we may be saved and not perish. Thank You for the Holy Spirit that we may be guided. Thank You for the Angels you have sent to each of our lives. Father, I pray that You keep Your hand on all of us this day, and help us all to make the right choices, and to help those we can. Thank You for being so real to me, and for knowing that You are always there, no matter what. Thank You for the forgivness of sins. Thank You for the life experiences I have had, that others might learn, and be helped. Thank You for Your help in getting through those life experiences.Thank You God, for the prayers of others. Thank You for sustaing me through all of my life. Help me Lord, I pray to plant seeds that are needed, and I ask that You water, and weed, and hoe those seeds so that they grow in Your love, and Your will.
God, I pray in Jesus Name that we continue to grow in Your love, and not to lose sight of Your hand in our lives. Father, I ask that You show me what to do in my situation, as You know what is best for me, and You know I am not happy with the way my life is with my husband. Guide me in the direction YOU will have me to go. I am Your willing and able servert Lord. Let us all remember to give You the praise and glory and honor for every good thing in our lives Lord. Keep us humble when we do have a victory, and remember that without YOU LORD, we would not have the victories! All this I ask in Jesus Holy Name. Amen.
Love you all lots & lots!
Cindy

Good Morning Everyone :) Sorry, it took me a few days to reply. It was my fiancee's birthday, Thursday. We went down to Virginia ( his family has a house on Chincoteague island) My youngest sister came with us too :) We had a wonderful time, a little too short though. haha. Well, we just got in a little while ago & I was up from the ride ( 4 hours + ) so I signed on & sort of scanned over some posts. I missed quite a bit. I'm going to go get some sleep but will be back to reply to everyone's posts & let you know how my trip was.
Kris, I'll send those pictures again but they won't come as Renee. I have one of those personal signatures set on the e-mail. I'll title it REN'S PICS. Check to see if you have anything from Lara. I actually put a pic of one of our trips to VA. ( Me Spudds & Tommy)
I bought a prayer about healing & grief in a bookstore on the island. They didn't have anything on addiction there. I'll post that when I get done unpacking all this stuff. Always in my prayers. God Bless. Love, Ren

Good morning Kris, BA, Cindy, Renee and all,

Itís Tuesday - wish it was Thurs. becuz I have it off! Hope all is well. Kris, I loved the poem about the
church on the hill - I was at work when I read it & trying to keep from crying! Thank you. I hope you are
doing better health wise - Iíve been thinking about you. I have been doing great about drinking - Things
are going pretty good. Work is stressful but I have a feeling it always will be. Iím still here so far - keep
praying & Iíll keep trying. Cindy, I appreciate you trying to help me see things in a different light and no I
donít want Taylor to go to school saying that her mom drinks beer all the time - which I know kids do - she
already has started - I actually donít have her right now she is w/ her dad for 2 weeks but Brett and I have
Tyler a week on and a week off so that helps becuz I donít want him telling his mom that - he already tells
us that her boyfriend drinks all the time - Brett is a big help in my not drinking - he drinks on occasion but
itís so nice not to have to watch someone drink every single night (like my old boyfriend) and me try not to.
Itís almost impossible. Brettís court date was postponed AGAIN - Iíll be glad when this all
settles. Please keep praying that the judge will make a fair decision. And Cindy as far as
your question how is Brett and our Lord - if that is what I think you mean - he believes in
God - he knows I pray for him on this site with all of you - he has a good heart and
believes in always being a good person but he doesnít actively go to church and we
havenít discussed religion in depth. BA - I hope things are going well for you - I pray
that you are staying sober and having fun - and Renee - I have such a picture in my head
(since I have never been to VA) that sounds like it was wonderful - I hope you had a good
time. I must go back to work - love you all

Dear Lord,

Please help Krisís health to improve so that we can have our friend back here on this site -
she is such a blessing and an uplifting soul, please help BA to stay sober and to resist the
temptations of alcohol, Please be with Cindy and keep her strong and help soften her
husbandís heart and touch her sonís heart so that he can stop using. Please be w/ Renee
and wrap her in your arms when she is missing Tommy. I pray Lord that you can help
keep me from drinking and please curb that urge I get for alcohol. Please help Brett and I
to keep communicating and to stay in love with each other. Please help the judge to make
a fair decision when that day finally comes in court and I pray I can keep working hard at
my job doing a good job and that my bosses can see that I am doing my best and
appreciate me as a good employee. I pray for Taylorís happiness and that she is having
fun at her dads. Please let her know she is missed and loved. God Bless & Amen

Good Morning to All!
So nice to hear from all of you. I have to finish getting ready for work, so this won't be too long. (did I hear a sigh of relief there?:)).Well, that's what I say. Maybe not what God has to say!
Kris, I'm so glad you are feeling better, and YOU ARE GETTING STRONGER EVERY DAY IN JESUS NAME!!! I feel you still have alot of the Lord's work to do! Praise God for YOU! And ya know what? YOU ARE LOVED,YOU MATTER AND YOU ARE SOMEBODY!!!!Somebody very special. I was born and raised in Phoenix (I don't live there now:( )., but I went to school with Apache's, and had friends the same. There has always been a big spot in my heart for the indians. They are such a sweet people. At least I see them that way. Just a little F.Y.I.Soooo glad to hear the good news about your Momma! Praise God again. Prayer DOES change things!I will try to e-mail ya later.
Renee,
Glad you are back, and had such a good time. Am anxious to hear about it. Hope all is going good for you and your friends. How is Brian & that situation? Bono, & her Grandma?
BA,
Also glad to hear things are going good for you also!! Just keep trusting in the Lord! He WILL carry us when the burden seems too much for us to carry!
Quigley,
Thank you for your openness.I hope I didn't go overboard! Like I've said before, this world is soooo full of pain, and hurt, I hate to see someone hurt. I know what it feels like, and wouldn't wish it on anyone!Am glad to hear that Brett believes in God. Is he saved? My husband saw this biker rally on a church showI was watching about 2 months ago, and stopped and listened to it, and said,"I'd like to meet him." So, I got up, and called the church, and told them(it was in a different town), and 3/4 days later, this guy called him, and they talked. This guy is a Harley Drag Bike racer.Personally, I think thats the main reason my husband wanted to talk to him. He used to have Harleys when he was a drunk/drugge, and hasn't had a license in 10/11 years. He said the sinners prayer over the phone with him. But whenever he's told anyone about this, he talks about how the guy is supposed to send him pictures of his drag bike, and all about him - not GOD! I've never in my life known anyone who "accepted" Jesus, and didn't have joy over it! I'm not sure why I just told you all that! So happy :) to hear you are doing good with your drinking!!! Praise God!:) Sorry to hear about the court date tho! I know how dissapointing that had to be! But I also know how the court systems are! Par for the corse! Just remember: GOD IS IN CONTROL!!If we seek Him FIRST, he will give us the desires of our heart! One big desire of my heart is to have a husband that loves our Lord, and is a leader in God's will. That seeks first the Kingdom of God.

To all of you:
I just learned some things last nite. About a month ago, my son & g/f's car had the windows broken out with bricks, and dents put in their car overnite. His g/f heard the noise, and they got the cops there cuz she saw who it was. Any way, the car got fixed (insurance HER mom pays). Well, last nite when she came to pick up my grandson, she was ratteling on, and says oh? I didn't tell you? I guess my son and this guy (the one who did this to their car) had been in another town for drugs, and the one guy went in to get the drugs, and the other guy in the car pulled a gun, cocked it and put it to my sons head, and said Give me the money, or I will kill you I sware on my mommas grave. So my son gave him the money, and the other guy that was with my son gave him his personal money, and then was mad about the whole thing, so took it out on their car. They drive a Benz. I guess according to her, he has done Meth a few times in the last month also. PLEASE keep praying for this situation. SEE? God does protect him. Thank You Jesus!
Also, last Sat. when my grandkids were all asleep for the nite, I went outside(my husband was working on this truck he is "hot rodding"(thats a 24/7 thing with him). A conversation we have had too too many times. About our "relationship" Says he doesn't know why he doesn't want a personal, intimate, close, loving, caring, "oneness" relationship. Also, says he is NOT leaving(hes left all his life)The conversation went on for probably 40/45 minutes, and got absoulty no where. He was working on the truck the whole time. Am I expecting too much for him to stop, and take time for us in this conversation? I came in the house, and put my wedding rings in a box. He hasn't noticied. Thats how I feel! I do not feel like I have a husband. Am I wrong for doing that? Please pray before any of you answer that question. I have felt guilty about doing that, sometimes, because I AM married.
Dear Dear Jesus,
This is one of those times when I feel so overwhelmed with life, that I NEED YOU SO DESPERATLY to carry me. My heart is broken over these things. There is nothing I can do except take it to You Lord, and leave it there. Please help me to do that, and not take them back, and try to figure it out on my own. I know I can't do it by myself.
Thank You Jesus for my friends here that I can share things with. Thank YOU so much for that.
Father, I ask that You be with each of them this day. Bring them to a closer walk with You, and me as well Lord. Help us all to be more like Jesus every day. Help us and direct us all in the decisions we have to make. Let us know we are making the decisions that YOU would have us make.
Thank You Lord for all the help, and strength You show all of us. Help us to encourage each other, and to daily give You praise and glory for all things in life. Weather they be victories, or trials to strengthen and guide us.
In Jesus percious Name I ask.
Amen
God Bless You all
Love you guys lots & lots,

Kris, BA, Cindy & Renee:

Good morning, All! It's Wednesday - so I'm off tomorrow but wanted to start my day off w/ prayer and saying hi to all you wonderful friends. Kris, yes I did get your cards and they are wonderful - I got the one this morning and I really needed a lift and it helped so much thank you! I hope you are feeling better - it has to be so hard to deal w/ the illnesses you deal w/. I admire your strength and positive attitude - if only half the people in the world had your outlook on life it would be a much better place. I am feeling funky this morning becuz Brett has started talking about my drinking problem more and more and it is starting to make me feel uncomfortable. I know I need to be honest w/ him but I haven't been totally. I've told him that I drink too much but that I can quit at any time if I feel like it and now he is starting to realize that is not exactly the truth. I got aggravated at him this morning becuz he said that (even tho it is the truth) and I know I shouldn't be. What is my problem? I know he cares that is why he says what he says - he's just not very tactful at it!

Cindy, I'm so sorry that life seems topsy turvy for you right now. I know how that feels when you want so bad to draw someone out of their shell to talk to you intimately and talk about how you feel about one another and the other side has no interest. My last boyfriend of 5 years was like that. I would still be hanging on probably except for that he asked me to move out. Which, now I am thankful. That is when I first found this site and started praying that God intervene in our relationship. And look what happened. So I will say a prayer for you and your husband and your son too.

BA, hope all is well w/ you. I pray that you are staying sober and drinking your O'Douls! I'm sure you can relate to how I am feeling w/ my boyfriend - I know you have been through the same thing.
REnee, hope you are having a good Wednesday - when are you getting married? For some reason I thought you were married already.
Well all, time for prayer and then back to work - which by the way is going better (I think) except that my co-worker now wants to quit and she is soooo hard to work w/ becuz her attitude is so negative!!! She is a friend so I pray that she can overcome her bad mood today -
have to come back to opray

Dear Lord,

Please watch over Kris - help her health to improve and give her the strength she needs to return to the
things that she enjoys - I pray that Cindyís husband can learn to open his heart through you and see how
he is hurting his wifeís heart - wrap yourself around him Lord and show him the way - help Cindyís son to
see that drugs are not how you meant for his life to be spent - let him find other ways to spend his days
and to enjoy life - I pray BA stays strong and sober and Lord I pray that I can stay strong and sober also.
Give me strength Lord and willpower against alcohol. I pray that I can listen to Brett and not be upset at
him for his words. Please help Brett and I to raise Tyler right and when Taylor and Tyler are with us help
us to work as a family unit. Help me Lord, if this is the right job for me, to work hard at my job, and to not
make mistakes and to prove to my bosses that I am capable of doing a good job. Direct me in the path
that you want me to walk and I pray for patience and understanding when Brett is struggling w/ his son
and his issues in court and in his life. I pray for peace, love and happiness for all of my friends on this site.
Amen.

I would like to thank my Higher Power for giving me the gift of sobriety. There is no hell like addiction. I have been shown the way out and it is incredible. I couldn't even get out of bed in the morning without taking pills and having a drink. I couldn't keep food down, nor did I want to eat. I couldn't carry on a normal conversation, and I couldn't remember anything I did manage to say. Today, that is all different. Today is beyond my wildest dreams. Just for today I will not drink or use a drug. When I lay my head down tonight I will thank my Higher Power for giving my another sober day. In the morning when I rise, I will ask my Higher Power to help me stay sober just for the day, just as I did today. It is that simple, I don't have to worry about tomorrow for it has not yet arrived. I will not get bogged down by the thought of never being able to drink again, I will just not drink today. It is a wonderful thing.
Addiction is insanity, and insanity is repeating the same behavior over and over while expecting different results. If bad things happen when you use, bad things will continue with the use. I pray that everyone suffering from this disease takes the path I have. God will show you the way, you just have to do the work, and believe me it's worth it: beyond my wildest dreams. My worst day sober is far better than my best day using. For anyone who knows me and my recent troubles, that last statement speaks volumes.
I also need to thank my Higher Power for my friends and family. There are so many great people in my life that I could never see in my addiction. Renee, my best friend through thick and thin, is my second greatest gift. Sobreity being the first and she helped me get that. She could not be a better friend. I ask my Higher Power and all the Angels to watch over her, especially in the coming days. Tommy's birthday is coming up, and I really know how difficult that is now. The void feels even larger on those days when you know you would be doing something for that person if they were still physically with us. Edge, one thing you don't need to pray for is to be a better friend...you should be the mold used to make friends. Boy I am getting corny in my old age, but it is true!
I ask my Higher Power to help all those still suffering and everyone on this site. Keep giving them the comforting words they provided me, and give them the strength to battle their own demons.
Take care everyone...and Thanks!

Bono
