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.

Father God,
I can sing of Your Love forever!Sing praise! His love endures FOREVER! Thank You God for loving us.Father, You see the broken hearts here. You see their pain. Their tears. They know not what to do. I pray Father that You comfort them in their time of need. I pray Father that they seek a closer walk with You.I pray Your will be done Lord not mine. You are the giver and the taker of life Lord, and I thank You for all addicts that they are still here, which means they still have a chance to come to You Lord, and to make right choices in their lives. They still have the chance to LIVE, and know the Grace You give us so freely. Thank You Lord. I pray You keep Your loving hands on them both the users, and the ones standing by them. They need You in their lives Lord more now than before. Help them Father to seek You in everything they do. To seek Your will for their lives.
Father, keep Ba, & Quigley safe, and help thyem Lord to do Your will. I know its hard to give up self. We all struggle with it every day. Help us all to know and feel the joy of the Lord in the mist of all our trials.To You Lord, be the golry and oraise. Without You Lord, we are nothing.
Father Your Word tells us in Ephesians 6:10 -17 -Finally, my brethern, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might
11:Put on the whole armor of GOD, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darknessof this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13: Wherefor take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand
14:Stand therefor having your loins grid about with TRUTH, and having on the breastplate of righteousness
15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace
16: Above all, taking the sheild of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quinch all the firey darts of the wicked
17: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of god:
18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
Father, help us every day to put on the whole armor of GOD.Help those realize that You are our strength Our guiding light. Father, I pray for my own son that You deliver him from the evils of drugs. Lord, let him be the Dad You intended him to be. Thank You for bring people here, that their strength may be made whole in You. Increase their faith
In Jesus Precious name I pray
Amen
Love and prayers always~~

This is my first time on here in a very long time and I see some familiar names.
Kris, is my sister in Christ and I just love her she perserveres through all the trials she suffer.
I as well haven't heard from her lately butt one thing I'm sure of she may not feel well enough to sign in or pc could be malfunctioning but I know and trust in God that she is somewhere praying for all of you and the many prayer circles she visit. I will e-mail her tonight and see when she respond.
She is covered in the blood remember that!
I pray God answers all of your prayers in His Will and timing for your lives.
For He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to hurt you; to give you a hope and a future.
Blessings to all in Jesus Name, Amen!

I pray the blessings of God to be with each of you. I pray God touch and bring deliverance to all those oppressed by the tactics of the enemy. Whether we hide through drugs, alcohol, mental and verbal abuse we all suffer/
My sister died on August 2, 2003, after suffering the affects of alcoholism, and you know it's the most quiet and frightening thing to be controlled by a force and helpless to it, know it's hurting you but cannot fight back.
One thing I learned to love them and not turn your back, ask God how to reach them, ask God that they may receive you in order to hear of the Good News. One thing I find comfort in is this; she'd given her life to Christ, and now I know she is at Peace and no longer has to fight those demons from hell. She is whole now and I Thank God, yes, she's not here with us in the physical, yet God gave me 40 years with her, and I Thank Him, she was such a beautiful person, yet God loved her best and decided it was time for Him to care for her. I Thank God for His Strength and Peace that has kept me, I want you all to know God is forever Faithful; though we may not see His reasons or understand God knows and is full of Wisdom and Power.
So whatsoever problems you may have God wants you.......Just as our army states,
We're helpless and can't do anything but Glory be to God, go to Him, cry and travail before Him concerning those things you're suffering, even if it's not abuse whatever it is, God is able to do all things.
Remember ask God to give you love not only for family, friends, and those that's good to you but for everyone. Love makes the difference.
Embrace those that's suffering pray for them and show forth the Love of God in all things, and I pray God bring deliverance to all those who suffer and set captives free in the Name of Jesus.
Amen!
I'm sorry to babble but I came to this site several weeks ago and didn't know what to say. I just want to help one person if at all possible. so through all your giving give Love and offer prayer; prayer does change things.
God is beckoning all to Him with outstretched hands; wont you take His hands, He's not asking nothing of you but for you to trust Him. Go to Him with all your problems, addictions, He and only He can make the difference.
Peace, Love, Mercy and Grace to be multiplied unto all in the Name of Jesus, Amen!
Christ Love and mine, Tam~

DUMB I no~~~~ I hope God gets me back to the Sober person the way I was going and I pray school and work full time for 9 months doesnt take a toll on me ora at least let me handle it withoust booze:

Hello all,

Well, I'm still here at work but I called in sick yesterday because I drank myself into oblivion on Sunday - kicked my boyfriend out and pretty much had a breakdown. I need prayers AGAIN - sorry I sound so self centered but I just really feel out there right now. I asked my boyfriend to come back and told him I was sorry - he says I scare him but he did come back because I was sobbing. I pray that I can stop drinking like that and that I can either find a new job or something at my old job will mellow out. I'm so stressed. Lord help me to shake my stress and to put my problems in your hands - I pray for Brett today in depositions that things go as smoothly as possible. I just really need all the help I can get right now.

Dearest Quigley,
We have to hit rock bottom before we are willing to change our lives for the better,Im sorry life seems tough right now but TRUST GOD and things will get better,,As YOU and I sometimes drink to relieve life ( it doesnt work) it makes things worse.Remember~~~~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 TOMORROW DISTRACT YOU FROM WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY. I have learned this disease Chemical Dependency is referred to as a disease of feelings, usually people grow up in emotionally unhealthy families where feelings were not expressed openly. Remember when you want to get drunk or even drink per say after work for an example...ask yourself FIRST before taking that 1st drink "what am I feeling right now, sad, mad, angry, sepressed, lonely etc...THEN try and self talk positive meanings and feelings to yourself or call a friend or a AA meeting..When we discover what were running or hiding from then we can overcome our addictions..Take deep breaths and TELL YOURSELF I DONT NEED A DRINK, I AM HAPPY, HEALTHY, SOBER ETC...It's all what we tell ourselves in the long run that counts. We finally make the choices that will guide our lives..It's hard believe me Iv'e been there, but trust me it will get easier if you talk to God, pray and make the RIGHT CHOICES to stay SOBER..If the drinking is a habbit like I said try drinking O'duls instead and see how great you FEEL the next day and then you will get stronger and stronger..As you see already GOD is showing you booze is ruining your life..Look already Brett is upset with your drinking:::DO YOU REALLY WANT TO LOOSE EVERYTHING OVER A DAMN BEER? You have been strong before and were doing good the choice is yours, hang in there.
Dear Lord, I pray for Quigley that you bind these powerful addicition to alcohol and helo her to say NO, I pray you give her direction at work or another job, I pray if it be your will ,Brett and her come to an agrement and have comuniction in their relationship, I pray you give her peace and lead her on the right path, may she feel your presence and love and find healthy ways to relax, help her to be strong and trust in herself she can do this, In Jesus name I pray,
GOd bless,
Bettyann

Dear BA,

Thank you for your prayers - It lifted my spirits so much when I read it - I really wish I could figure out the
source of my stress. Iím really not sure. I know my job doesnít help - but I would just bring on new stress
by not making enough money. What to do? Brett is actually a big help in not drinking because I enjoy
being around him without a buzz. Sometimes he has a bad temper but I feel like if I lost him right now Iíd
really go off the deep end and drink. I will keep trying and try not to let things get me down so much. I
actually drank so much on Sunday that I thought I had overdosed. That has never happened to me. Brett
and I and the kids went to the coast together for the weekend - (which is where I just moved from 6
months ago and all of these memories came flooding back of living there and my old boyfriend (it was not
my choice to go) my daughter missed it too. I was a wreck and I wasnít very nice to him. Anyway,
enough about me - I wish I had time to answer more of your posts but this will have to do for now and I will
try and come back. Love and God Bless

Dear Lord,

I pray for my friend BettyAnn - I pray that you can take the evil addiction away from her and let her enjoy
her life without booze. Keep her strong Lord give her willpower and watch over her and help her to make
smart decisions.

Dear Lord,

I pray that you can be with my friends here on this site, BA, Kris, CW, Bonnie and Cindy (Angel) - please help w/ all of the issues we are facing - thank you for letting us band together as a prayer team - talking for myself, I don't know what I would do without them - God bless each and every one of my new friends - help BA to stop drinking completely - I pray that CW's dad and sons can stop using drugs - I pray for Angel's son to stop using and her husband to realize what a wonderful wife he has; I pray for Bonnie's husband to stop using drugs and last but not least - I pray for Kris to be alright and to let her know how much she is missed and loved.

Good Morning to everyone.
It has been a few days since I have been on but I havenít forgotten about anyone and have been praying for each of you daily. The only time I have access is during the week. I had to take the day off last Friday because my daughter was sick. She is healthy again and back in school. Monday and Tuesday I had to play catch up at the office, so now I am back on track and it is quiet again. First I would like to thank everyone for your prayers. I am not sure where Brianís head is now, but I am doing my best to be supportive. I do thank God everyday that he is alive and has admitted to having a problem; I just hope he carries out the desire to seek help. He made the evaluation on Friday and then a meeting afterwards, but hasnít done anything since then. He is again out of town working, but this week he has other workers with him so he will not be alone and he is coming home tonight. I pray every night that he is staying straight. I have lost a lot of trust and am having a hard time gaining it again. On Sunday he went to play golf and I was wondering is that what he is really doing or is he getting high. Lord, please help me to release this feeling and gain trust in him. Am I wrong not to have much faith in Brian now? Quigley - Sorry to hear about the bad weekend. I know what memories can do to a person, but please keep the faith. Things will get better. Everything is possible with Godís help, maybe not as easy as we would like it, but possible. I know you have heard this before, but take one day at a time and donít beat yourself up for falling down. Just pick yourself up, wipe of the dust, and continue to travel down the path with all the love and faith you have in God. It sounds like you have a good man in your life and you both need each other now, so keep praying and God will see you through to the end of this nightmare. BA Ė I have to thank God for your words of encouragement. You are a great testament of faith to others. Remember, you are stronger than all the booze and pills that you can get your hands on. Hang on to your faith. I will close this now with a prayer for all of us. God bless you all. Bonnie


Dear Lord, I come to you now with thanksgiving for another day. So many people in this world wake up to nothing, but I do have a roof over my head and food to eat and a loving daughter and a job to go to. Thank you again, all praise and glory to you. Father, I lift up to you all my new friends on this site, please be with them as they fight all the demons that attack them daily and make theirs a closer walk with you. Lord, you know the demons that are facing Tam, please be with her and help her fight back. Please be with BA and Quigley and keep them strong. Show them that they donít need the pills or booze to make it through the day. Lord I ask that you watch over Cindy Wís family. Give them the strength to fight this battle and to remain strong in the faith. And now Lord I come to you with a prayer for strength, courage and faithfulness for my family. Lord you know how I love my husband and just ask that you show him that he is worthy of my love and how to accept it. You know he is a good man and that he has great potential, just like all of your children do, but please open his eyes Lord. Thank you Lord for healing Paige. Please be with the rest of the children that are feeling the pains of this illness. Wrap you loving arms around them and let them know you are there for them. Thank you for all of the blessings in my life. In your name, I pray. Amen.

Morning Bonnie,
Good to hear from you. Let me first say you have every right to feel betrayed and not trust your Husband sometimes, that doesn't mean he can't or wont change it's just Ive learned in the past from Counseling he LIED to you and tole you in good faith he had a drug problem...Let me tell you he must really love you because admitting he has a problem is a HUGE first step:
And acceptance is the answer to ALL my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation---some fact of my life---unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.
I love you all so much and thank God for Renee starting this site, I grow each and every day when I feel Im weak and then come to this site. I drank 1 beer last night then STOPPED and asked myself what am I feeling right NOW or trying to NOT feel? It worked, I prayed then went to water, watched tv and went to bed. I now no why Im trying to drink again sometimes and the Noing is a big step for me to STOP. Im scared and nervous about starting school next week and working full time and Im trying to run and not deal with those scary feelings..BUT today, I woke up feeling different giving it to God and told him to watch over me and hlep me make it thru and not feel this way and run to booze. I feel so much better just giving it to him and TRUSTING things will work out in the long run, I just have to remain strong. Hang in there Bonnie, I no at this time it's hard to trust Brain because you have been decieved but just keep the faith and GOd will work on Brian.We all have to work on ourselve's I realized today then let God work on others for we CAN"T change others only God can..I was so busy trying to help and change others this last month that I forgot about ME and then thats where the booze fit in, I wasn't taking time for me..As my Dad told me last night. "Why worry about things that haven't even happened yet"..That totally changed my perception on life, school, work, etc..Just worry about the things you NO YOU CAN CHANGE and let God do the rest, I pray for Quigley that you be with her today Lord and help her to focus on herself and help her to remain strong and have the guidance and direction she needs in life, help her not to worry about Brett, Taylor, Job, Booze etc...all which only causes more stress with no answers..help her to pay attention only for now on her recovery from booze, I pray you let us no Kris is alright for she is dearly missed, I pray for Cindy that things work out with her Husband, I pray for Cindy W that she and her Dad will make it thru and see a change and give her Dad the will to get off drugs, I pray for all on here that we get stronger each and every day and learn to say no to the temptations in life, that God surronds us with his angels protecting us and that we may all overcome our trials on worries in life,
God bless to you all,
Bettyann

Evening Bonnie & BA,

The work day is almost over, whew! Could have been worse. Bonnie, I think it's perfectly normal to have doubts right now - and to wonder if he is telling you the truth - it takes time to regain trust and he needs to earn it. But it is a fine line with us addicts - so be careful don't make him feel as though no matter what he does you don't believe him because that could make him say "who cares, she doesn't believe me anyway." Good for you BA, I am proud of you about the one beer - you sound like you are having a good day and that makes me smile - keep it up - I went to dinner w/ Brett and had 2 drinks - just enough to make me sleepy. The sad thing is I'd probably of had just as much fun having none. One day at a time - well, I have to go but I wanted to end the day with a prayer. Love you guys

Dear Lord,

I COME TO YOU IN PRAYER FOR BONNIE'S REQUEST FOR BRIAN AND FOR BA AND FOR MYSELF. I JUST PRAY THAT YOUR HOLY SPIRIT CAN COME IN AND DWELL WITHIN. LORD I PRAY THAT YOU WILL HELP KEEP US STRONG WITH THE FIGHT OVER OUR ADDICTIONS. LORD GIVE US THE STRENGTH TO WALK AWAY FROM THAT LIFE AND TURN TO A BETTER LIFE WITH YOU. AMEN

Hi all,

Starting the day out w/ a prayer - I did good on drinking last night - woke up this morning and went a few rounds w/ my daughter - she is somewhat mentally disabled and my patience was not up to par this morn - I'm feeling a little grumpy - hope everyone else's Thurs morn goes better

Dear Lord,

I pray for more patience w/ my daughter and to know when and when not to push her and to be able to tell when you really can or cannot do something (like puting on her shoes) I pray for patience w/ Brett when he says things I do not want to hear - I pray for a job that I can get up in the morn and be happy to go to - help me Lord, to keep from losing my temper w/ the people I love amen.

Greetings my fellow prayer warriors. I have missed you all and think of you every day. Things have been a constant whirlwind. My dad was let out less than 48 hours after he was arrested. I haven't been able to get a straight story. What I do know from my little sis is that he was picked up by the DEA. He is in denial and thinks I was the one who narced him out. I have not spoke to him. I have been down this road with him before. I continue to love and pray for him, but when someone is that far gone and not ready to get help, you can't reach them. My little sister poured out her heart and soul to him. All the anger, sadness, disappointment, confusion, love, betrayal it all came out. She said he had tears when she was done, but she felt like she barely scraped the surface. Our family has always been so close. I love my dad so much, it hurts. I want to wake up and find out it's just all been a bad dream. We fear like the egg commercial. The egg before the frying pan and then, "this is your brain on drugs" after the egg is cracked into the frying pan. My sons are doing better, Praise be to God. They are both working, hard, ligitimate jobs, long days for real money. They still have a long long road ahead of them. I will continue to minister tough love, unconditional love and I pray wisdom from above. I agree that prison isn't the answer. My dad is sick and he needs help. He needs to be in a controlled environment where he can get the help he needs to face his demons. We don't know what turned him back to drugs. Maybe trying to recapture his youth, that feeling of being "invincible", only God knows. I thank all of you for your prayers. You are all so precious to God and so loved.

I don't know any of you and yet I feel like I know you. I lost my real mother, who I never got to know. I only found out six years after she had died that her liver had exploded. She was only 36. Yes alcoholism runs in my family also. My older brother did 90 days in rehab when he hit his bottom. That was 10 years ago. He stone cold and sober. I admire him, he continuous to face so many challenges, but he just keeps praising God. His philosophy is: "I just get up each day, go to work, and try to help someone along the way." I'm his sounding board when he needs to vent and vice a versa. Our family is highly disfunctional by all standards, but thats how we are able to love each other and not stand in judgement of others. "We have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God." I feel like the least of one of His servants everyday of my life, but I keep fighting the good fight. God is good and I am blessed. My foster child who has severe Cerebral Palsy,blind,non-verbal,depends on a feeding tube to live. There isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't smile, or laugh or remind us just how blessed we truelly are. He is an earthbound angel. He doesn't know hate, addiction, unforgiveness. He just loves and wants to be loved. Pain is really all he's ever known, yet he never complains. I feel so ashamed as I so often get on my pity pot. Yes we go through trials and tribulations, but we are never alone. We just think we are, but Our Father and Our Lord Jesus are right there. Right where we left them. Their prodigal children. They lovingly, patiently wait for us to return unto them. How then can we turn our backs on each other or our family. My dad has been entrusted into God's care. God will do a work and a healing. I will wait upon the Lord. My prayers are with each of you, that whatever valley you are in, or tunnel you are walking through, there is light. He is there. God Bless You. God Bless Kris bring her back to us dear Lord. Thank you for each and every soul in this prayer circle. I pray in Jesus name.Amen CindyW

Morning Cindy, Quigley and ALL,

Good Morning to all,
I haven't been on here in a few days, but have been reading your posts, and you have all been in my prayers.
This is such a wonderful site. Where we can come, and be so open and honest with each other. I am truly sorry to hear of your slip ups Quigley & BA. :(
Know that God is on the throne, and watching with outstreached arms, waiting want for us to surrender all to Him. WE cannot do it alone!!! Whatever it is, we WILL FALL if we are not centered in Christ! Jesus LOVES US SOOOOO MUCH!! We are all precious in His sight! I pray you all have a blessed weekend. How come you guys don't post on the weekends? Quigley, I know you said you don't have the net at home. Too busy? Not at home on the weekends? Just wondering????
Father in Heaven,
I come to You in prayer this morning, and I give You thanks for another day, and another night of rest.Thank You for Your word Lord. It is so comforting in our time of need, and when things seem to be going ok also. Help us all to study to show ourselves approved. Keep us in Your word daily.Lets us all find our strength in You. Help us all to do our part unto You Dear Lord.Father, I ask that those on this site seeking to be sober, and drug free that You bring them to an understanding that they cannot get there on their own.And if they DO, it will be short lived without You. Help them to realize what an ever present help You are in their lives, if they will just surrender all to YOU! Our time here is soooo short Lord, we need to be aware that life is precious ~ life is sweet. Jesus bore our sins that we may be made whole ~ by His stripes we are healed and His blood covers all our sins. Let us all feel the love of Christ in our daily walk. Thank You Lord Jesus for friendships. For having others in our lives that we cqn talk to and share with. Father, whatever ones addiction is, I pray healing and cleansing over them in Jesus Name, and ask that we all be filled with Your love for one another, and be aware of Your presence. For all those suffering Lord, I pray that they turn to You Lord for comfort and strength.
In Jesus Name I pray
Amen
Love you all lots!
Keep the FAITH!!
Cindy(Angel)

Hello BA, Bonnie, Cindy, Cindy, Kris & all,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I drank a little bit but I had a really good weekend. I am back on track
today - tired but my spirits feel up this morning - Angel - I need to buy a new computer because the one I
have at home is old and very slow and then I figured why pay the extra money if I have access to the
Internet at home. If I end up not working here anymore, I will definitely get hooked up at home and look
into buying a Dell - I donít want to lose contact w/ everyone. Anyway, Iím going to start the day off w/
prayer - hope you all have a good day.

Dear Lord,

I lift up my friends of this prayer circle, Betty Ann, CW, Cindy (Angel), Bonnie, Kris and everyone else here
on this prayer site for a special blessing. I pray that you hear and answer their prayers according to Your
Divine Will. You know what each one of us needs...please be with us each step of the way
as we struggle with each of our individual issues. I pray Lord that Brett and I can keep
communicating and understanding each other the way we have been. I pray that Taylor can live as
normal and happy a life as possible, I pray that she can lose some of the weight and make new friends in
school. I pray that you can take the urge to drink alcohol away. I pray for help and guidance with my job
and to direct me in the right direction if the right path is not this job. If it is this job, I pray that I can do a
good job. Please be w/ Brett through all of his problems w/ Angel. I pray that you can keep him strong
and that you can help her to soften her heart to what is going on w/ their court situation. I pray that their
court battles end soon . Amen.

Good Morning to everyone here, I hope that you all had a great weekend. BA, I am glad to hear that you were able to control the drinking at the game. I am sure you had a great time and felt good this morning when you woke up. Also, I was so glad to hear about the loan and internship at the doctorís office. Quigley, I will pray for you to have patience with daughter. I have an eight yr old and my patience with her is sometimes not what it should be. I have to thank God for loving moms like you. You are so strong to be able to take this child into your home and love and support to her. Also, I pray for help in finding a better job. I feel the same way about supporting myself and my family needs the income I bring in. Cindy W: I will pray for your father. I am thankful that your sons are doing better. My mother has a slight mental handicap so we have never had a close relationship. She was never there for me, mentally, growing up. I always had to figure things out on my own. By the time I was 14, I was managing the money that came in so we could survive. Looking back now, I know I took advantage of her by not respecting her. Letís just say I wasnít the best kid in high school. I do love her, she is my mom and did the best she could. If I could do it all over again, I would make it much easier on her. I just hope and pray I can be there for my child. Cindy (Angel) thanks for the prayers of encouragement. You are so strong in your faith; it gives so much hope to others. I have to ask you all now to pray for Brian and me. This was not one of our better weekends. He did not come home until 2 a.m. on Sunday. I called and called, but he never answered his phone. Then, when he did come home, I couldnít control myself and just went off on him. He says he didnít get high; he just needed some time alone. I asked him why he didnít call and he said that it would not have made a difference, cause I still would have gotten mad. He feels it is perfectly ok to stay out and not let me know where he is. Am I wrong, or isnít common courtesy something that a couple should practice. I donít know how much more I can take. We fought all day Sunday. I tried not to, but when he acted like it was no big deal, it just made me that much more upset and I let him have it again. Which was really dumb, because Paige was there and she heard it all. I cried and cried and told her how sorry mommy was that she had to hear that. Why canít I just keep my mouth shut? God, please help me to figure out what I am supposed to do. Is this marriage supposed to work or am I supposed to walk away and start over? After our fight on Sunday I went to the gym to work out and am really feeling it today. J I guess that is a good thing. We went to bed without a goodnight or a kiss and then today he is off again to work and out of town for the week like nothing ever happened. Someone please give me some ideas on how to handle this. I know this is a long post and for that I apologize. I just get such strength from giving all of this to God and you. I pray that you all have a blessed day. Take care. Bonnie

Dear Lord, Please be with all of us today and make ours a closer walk with you. Please be with Brian as he travels and is away from us this week. Please bless all of my new friends on this site. Give them all the strength they need to see things through. Please continue to be with Cindy, BA, Cindy (Angel), and Quigley. Lord you know their pains, their wants and their needs. Please help them to make it through another day. In your name, AMEN.
