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.

Bonnie,

I agree with you and I feel for you because I would have done exactly the same thing. I believe that a couple should respect each other and what your husband did was not care about how you were feeling by staying out the way he did and not calling you. Especially with the problems you have been having. Don't beat yourself up for losing your temper and being upset with him - you are only human. I will say a prayer for you - I'm sorry I don't really have any good advice to give you except that I feel how you reacted was completely normal and that Brian should have apologized. It is not a reason to give up on a marriage but then again, it is never just one single thing that makes the marriage crash - it is an accumalitive of things that happen over time - maybe you need to point that out to your husband. It sounds like he needs someone to put a bee in his bonnett. Hang in there girl. You're in my thoughts.

Dear Lord,

Please be with Bonnie today as she struggles to regain trust for her husband and to overcome the hurt he is causing her. Please help her to make the right decisions regarding her marriage and please Lord, let brian see what he is doing to Bonnie's heart and make him realize that a husband should respect and cherish his wife.
Amen

Good Evening to you all!!
We have all had another day to LOVE JESUS CHRIST and I hope that eachof you took just a moment to tell our Heavenly Father how much you love Him! He wants to hear that ya know, just as WE like to hear it!
BA~ glad to hear about the loan :) How are you feeling now about it, with you signing on it? Don't let the booze mess it all up for you two! O.K.? I know you will be busy with work and school ~~ which is a GOOD THING, because you need something to take up the time you would normally spen drinking! :) Keep up the good work ~ I am proud of you for being so determined!! You will get there! One of these days you will just say "OK God, I'm sick of this going back and forth, and I give it to You, and I am never taking it back! It is in Your Hands now and forever!!"
Quigley ~~ same goes for you!! I am proud that you kept the drinking down and had a good time!! :) You keep it up also, and just give your all to God ~ He WILL take care of all your needs!! I didn't know you had a special needs child! How blessed you truly are!! You not only get to know the beauity in this world that God has given to us , but you also get to see it through the eyes that your daughter sees it with! Look at it through her eyes, and see what you find! :) Let me know, O.K.?
Bonnie ~~ I have been where you are, and it's a pretty lonely, sad place to be! :( My heart goes out to you, and the anguish you are going through. BUT!!! I am living proof that you can come out of this situation a BETTER, STRONGER, and more intelligent person!! You NEED to go get books on ADDICTIONS!!! PLEASE, PLEASE DO THAT! You will learn SO much, and with that knowledge, you will learn how to control your emotions. You will figure out how to be an "ACTOR" NOT a "REACTOR" when situations come up. And they will come up! Your husband is going through as much hell right now as you are believe it or not! He's not happy with HIMSELF and until he gets to a place where he is,there's not much you can do to get through to him. He has let you down. He has let your family down, your marriage down, and he doesn't feel worthy of forgivness. He doesn't know how to face this OR you! It's a VERY tangled web, and YOU need to understand the makings of addiction FOR YOURSELF!! Do it for you and for Paige!!! How are you going to help Paige get through this, and understand, and come out of this better, if YOU don't know how? PLEASE I ASK YOU AGAIN TO EDUCATE YOURSELF FOR YOUR OWN SANITY, AND HEALTH !! Believe me, sooner or later if you don't figure out how to handle your emotions, IT WILL EFFECT YOUR HEALTH, AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU DO!! It will effect your relationship with Paige, because kids just don't have the mind capabilities to handle this!! WE DON'T by ourselves! Why do you think GOD made people who do research on stuff like this?? SO WE CAN HELP OURSELVES!! He can't do everything FOR us! Guess maybe I should climb down off this soap box huh? Hahahahahaha! It is just a subject that is so close to my heart, and I KNOW WHAT GOD AND EDUCATING YOURSELF CAN DO! You CANbe FREE of all the emotions, and yet still be there for him! If that's what you want to do. USERS usually don't have much consideration for others. It is the DRUGS you are dealing with NOT the man you married. You need to learn that. To seperate the two. It's not EASY, but if you are determined, you CAN do it! THAT is when you will be able to HELP. :) You are on a very rough road, and I want you to know that I am here for you, as all of us are. Just let it all out to us, and save Paige from it, and WE WILL UNDERSTAND!! O.K.!! I'm done. (At least for now ;)( thats a wink)

You guessed it! I didn't leave for long! ;)Hahahaha!
CW~~What I just said to Bonnie goes for you also. My heart is with you and all that you are going through. I hope that things are getting better for you and your sons. One more thing I can say, and HAVE to say is this: YOU CAN"T FIX YOU DAD, OR ANY ONE ELSE WHO USES! It's a VERY HARD LESSON TO LEARN BUT ONCE YOU ACCEPT IT, LIFE DOES GET EASIER FOR YOU!! I mean truly accept it. We want so desperatly to help those we love, and through the drugs everything we do is usally to no prevail. They will say the things WE WANT TO HEAR, THEY WILL MAKE DEALS WITH GOD ( They don't understand that GOD IS NOT MONTY HALL!!) HE doesn't make DEALS!! When we hear things we want to hear, it is because they are WANTING something from US! Am I right Quigley & BA? You guys know what I'm saying here.Did I hear an amen? Haha! Drugs CHANGE a person soooo totally! You are dealing with the drugs NOT the person! Drugs take over their thinking. Their lives and everything or person their lives touch. Focus you heart and you mind on JESUS CHRIST. In every step you take. Don't take a step by yourself. Seek Gods will in YOUR life, and walk with Him. He will NEVER NEVER LEAD US ASTRAY OR DOWN A CROOKED PATH!! HE LOVE US SOOOO MUCH. THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR MERCIES TO US AND FOR LOVING US JUST THE WAY WE ARE!! :)
Glatians CHAPTER 5 VERSES 22-26
22 BUT the fruit of the SPIRIT is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING (paitent), GENTELNESS, GOODNESS, FAITH,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirious of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Galations Chapter 6 verse 9 says: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap: if we faint not.
These are GODS PROMISES TO US!! In DUE season!!!:) :) Read your Bibles every day. STAY in Gods Word. It will get you to such a better place, and you will be sooo at peace. Just like me with my marriage. We did go to counciling last Friday, (Christian), and we started with a prayer. That was cool:) I honestly don't know where this marriage will end up, but I can say I've taken it to God, and gotten the help I (we) need with it. I want a husband that loves God, and one that he & I can pray together, and take our problems, worries, concerns, etc. to our Heavenly Father in prayer TOGETHER. A husband that I can SHARE life with. Not just go through the motions with - what we are doing:( It's in Gods hands. There are things going on that I will tell ya all about at a later date - when I know what it all means, and what I am supposed to do.
PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD HE IS THE MIRIACLE MAKER JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER!! My son has not done any crack in two months!! :)He still smokes pot. One step at a time! The POWER OF PRAYER! God WANTS us to have JOY unspeakable and full of glory!! I give You ALL the Glory Father. I praise Your Holy Name.
Father in Heaven,
I bring all these troubles and people behind these troubles to You oh Lord. You see and know everything before we even speak Lord, so You know what's in their hearts. Lord, I pray that You comfort those who need comfort, and strengthen those who need strength to fight the good fight. Calm those who are restless Lord, let them know that YOU are in control.For those who are hungry let them be fed by Your Word Lord. Rest for those who are tired. Courage for those who are scared. Let them ask for Your presence, and let them feel Your loving arms around them. Protect those who need protection. Keep those safe who are in harms way Father. I thank You Lord for all Your blessings, and all our friendships, and all our families. Help us all to stay focused on You Lord, and seek FIRST Your will for our lives, and we give You the praise, and honor, and glory In Jesus Precious Name I pray.Amen
God loves you, and so do I~
Faith and Prayers in Christ,
Cindy(Angel)

Good Morning Girls,

Angel, that was very good advice to Bonnie - and thank you for pointing out those positive aspects of having a disabled child. Sometimes I don't see that because of my lack of patience and frustration but I will try to keep that in mind. BA, good luck at school - you will be in my prayers - I don't have Kris's phone no., just her email address. Love you all -

Dear Lord,

I pray today that you can be with BA and keep her sober and on the path you have chosen for her. I pray that she can stop drinking and concentrate on her school - I pray for Bonnie that you give her the strength to be there for her husband and that her husband can conquer his addiction - I pray that I myself can conquer my addiction to alcohol and I pray that Brett, Taylor, Tyler and I can all come together as a family unit. God grant me patience with Taylor and w/ Brett's situation - Give me strength to endure whatever the situation is here at work so that I can support my family - I pray that I can do a good job and if this job is not meant for me direct me in the path I should be going in. I pray for Brett to have strength to conquer his demons and I thank you Lord for giving me a friend like Cindy (Angel) as someone who can help me see a child like Taylor as a blessing - I pray that I can see past her disabilites and realize that.

Amen

Good Morning. First I want to thank God for such a beautiful day. The sun is shining and there are very few clouds in the sky and it doesnít look like there will be any more rain today. I also want to thank God for being with my two of my bossí while they are in Mexico. They are in an area where the hurricane hit, but they are safe and well. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME AND ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD!! Angel thanks for the advice. I have been reading all I can get my hands on about the addiction and I know it is the drug that I am fighting with and not Brian. I know that I have to give everything to God, but why do we always ask him how long it is going to take? I truly believe that God does NOT give you more than you can handle and that this will make me a stronger person. So I am taking it one day at a time and learning how to react (as you put it Angel) not act. I am taking more time for myself so I can spend better quality time with Paige. Does that make sense? BA Good luck in school. I know you can do it. You are right, you should be so tired at the end of the day, that you wonít have time or energy to pick up that drink. I will continue to pray for your strength to stay away from the temptation. Quigley How is the job going? Better I hope. If that door closes for whatever reason, God will open and bigger and better one for you. I pray that things are going well for your family. Thank you for telling me it was ok to be so upset with him. You are right, a marriage can come to an end due to all the things accumulating, but I am trying my best to remember that it is the drug and not him. I know now is not the time to give him an ultimatum, but I have to open his eyes somehow so he will see what he is at risk of loosing. Brian is a big sports fan and he recently found out that a big athlete is going to be preaching at a local church and he said that he wanted to go. I know why he wants to go, but I am hoping that while he is there, he will open his eyes to the Lord and get back on track. I think it would do us all a lot of good to get back into a church. Kristena Ė I am glad to hear that your loved one is on the path to being free of his addiction. We must all remember that they need our support to continue to help them and stay strong. That is my biggest problem, I think, I canít seem to remain strong and supportive. I always want to through it up in his face what all we have lost because of the addiction. I pray that God will help me get over that. I hope that you all have a blessed day and stay strong. Bonnie

PS I just got a call from my boss. They have a flight out this afternoon. Thank God. Lord please be with the pilots that will be flying the plane. Bring everyones family members home to them.

Dear Lord, I come to you now with a pray of thanks for the beautiful day that we are having. Dear God, please continue to be with the boys in Mexico. Wrap a hedge of protection around them and bring them home safe. I pray for their families while they are away. Keep them strong and out of harms way. I know how much the girls miss their dad. I come to you now with prayers for my friends on this site. Lord, please be with BA, Quigley, Angel, Cindy W, and Kristina. Help them to remain strong in their faith and give all things up to you. Lord we love you so and lay everything at your feet. Please help us all to remember that in times of trouble, to GO TO THE ROCK! In your name I pray AMEN

GIRLS!GIRLS!GIRLS!
I HAVE ABSOULTLY GREAT, WONDERFUL FANTASTIC NEWS!!!!!! KRIS IS ALIVE AND WELL!!!!! I CALLED HER LAST NIGHT, AND WE TALKED FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES!:) :) :) :) She sounded GREAT! Her net is down, and won't be back up till October - like the 6TH I think. She said tell everyone hi, and she misses us all, and can't wait to get back on here. and is praying for all. She also gave me BA,Qiugley, & Renee's emails, so I can get you all her phone #. I asked her if you all would be or get upset by her giving me your emails, and she said no, cuz we're all friends. Now, you guys will have mine too! So we can write each other too! :)She had given me her # in the first email I had gotten from her, and I had forgotten about that, but then BA, you asked if anyone had it, and it was like WOW!! I DO! I'm so glad you asked that question BA!! And I had put her emails to me in my filing cabinet, so I got it & called her! It was so good to talk to her! OH! BA, & Quigley! She said to tell you two to stay on the right track, cuz she WILL be back on here fussin' at you all! Hahahahaha!Isn't GOD wonderful??? Here we have all been so worried about her, and praying for her, and GOD says well, BA ask if anyone has her # and I did, and I had even saved it! He KNEW there would be a time when I needed it, and now we can all rejoyce in His goodness TOGETHER that He has kept our dear friend safe, and in O.K. health, and we know that she will be back on here! She has also been worried about all of us and wondering if we are all ok. The Dr. told her that her liver is holding its own!! That is GREAT news!! Praise God! He is just so good to us. Thank You Father! :)

Not done yet!
BA ~~ How was your first day???? I can't wait to hear all about it! It is so great that you are doing this! I am very proud of you! It takes alot to "go back" to school! Make sure you get the rest you need for this and work!I'm sure there will be times when its hard, but you just give it to our Lord,and ask Him to renew your strength,and then accept that renewal, and you will be fine.
Quigley? I don't see you today. I pray you are alright, and things will continue to get better for you. You are a very sweet child of God, and He loves you dearly. NEVER forget that.How is Taylor doing? God gave you this child for a reason. You must be a very capiable person to be entrusted with such a child! :) HE must have great faith in you! Seek HIS will in all ytou do Quigley as I think God has great things in store for you, as He does for us all, if we surrender our lives to Him.It is such a better place to be!!
CW ~~ I don't see you either today. I pray for you, and your family.Be sure and count your blessings today. We all have soooo many blessings even in our DARKEST hour because we have a loving Father who is ALWAYS with us, ALWAYS waiting for us to turn to Him.Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart.You know, God said for us to Honor our Mother & Father.(Hard to do isn't it?) BUT, He did NOT say if WE think they are worthy, or if WE think they are deserving OF our honor. God just said DO IT. It is our obedience to GOD that makes the difference!He has our reward for us! He went to make a place for us, and said if He goes to prepare a place for us then He WILL return for us that we may be with HIM also!! Praise GOD isn't that just GREAT??? Whatever we endure here, whatever our trials, and our tests, we will be rewarded a thousand times over! :)Stay in Gods word.Like this preacher I know says " Stay in God's word EVERY day, because every day in His word is a GOOD day." He is sooo right! You'll have a smile on your face, and a song in your heart.
Bonnie ~~ I'm glad you posted today. It eases the wondering! You hang in there, and keep turning every little thing over to our Father. He WILL see you through this!!I do understand you anger. I was filled with it over drug addictions of my loved ones at one time.You get soooo mad you can't even think straight. You don't know what to do, and you're always wondering - "well, if I do this or that, maybe it will make him etc.. etc.. etc.." Then nothing you do seems to make a difference.You're spinning your wheels, and getting more frustrated by the minute until you just explode! Am I close? It's a VERY hard road to travel. I wish I could just take you by the hand and show you what happens when we simply fall down on our knees and from our deepest place in our heart crying, tell GOD I can't do this any more! I just can't. I can't stand it God. I have nothing left to say to this person. I have nothing left to give, or offer. I have NOTHING but YOU LORD! YOU do something with this situation, and I will thank You for it NO MATTER what Your decision is, because You know so much more than me, and You already know what the end result will be. Help me in my struggles, and take all my fears and worries Lord. I give them to You Father. Do what You will. Give that person you love over to God, and then LET IT BE!! You will truly be AMAZED at what COMPLETELY TRUSTING AND BELIEVING IN OUR FATHER CAN DO !! You will have such a peace that is just unbelievable!I'm really NOT trying to preach here! Hahaha! Just KEEP the faith! :)
KRISTENA!!
WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!!! So glad to hear from you! Thank you for your kind words to me, but I'm not such a powerful person - MY GOD IS A POWERFUL GOD!! :) :) I am His servent, and HE is MY strength! I too am looking foreward to talking with you! You have come to a wonderful site. I don't know what you've read on here, but Renee started this site in memory of her cousin Tommy who went to be with our Lord from a drug overdose. The Bible says "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord."


AngleEthan
9/25/2003 00:40

My post wouldn't go through, so I'll finish what I was saying, and then go to our Father in prayer. I was saying that Renee is a wonderful, caring person, and Tommys life has done wonderful things here, through his cousin Renee.I thank God for this site, and for giving Renee the strength to do this, and I thank God for Tommy too.
Oh Father,
I come to You tonight with praise and thanksgiving for such a blessed life. For such a beautiful day. Thank You Father for being so loving and giving to me. To all of us Lord. There are soooo many who do not even know You Lord, and it makes my heart sad. Every one should know the joy of our Lord, and the peace that comes from knowing You. You are so good to us. Help us Lord, when we start to whine about something, and help us to remember how blessed we are. How much we have to be thankful for. Ease our worries Father as we learn every day to just let go of things. We couldn't even come close to what You can do if we will just get out of Your way, and let You do what You know is best for our lives. Father, I pray for Kris, and Quigley, and Ba, and Bonnie, and CW, and Renee, and for Kristena, and for Kristenas Chris. Lord I lift them up to You, and I pray as You have told us to do in Your word. Father, I break the power of satan in their lives and I claim their deliverence and their salvation. In Jesus Name I pray.Lead them beside the still waters Lord. Let them drink from Your cup. Fill them with Your love. Give them the peace that only You can give. Dry their tears Lord, and comfort their hearts. Give them strength to face each new day, and help them to stand on Your word, and believe with all their hearts. Father,thank You for the Holy Spirit that interceeds when we don't even know what to pray. For making a way when we can't find it Lord. You are so good to us Lord. I thank You Father. I pray for my family also Lord, that my sons come to know You as I do, and love You Lord. Thank You for giving me all You have given. Help me to be an example Lord, that others might see the love of Jesus shine through me. That I can help just one person Lord, that I may be able to plant that one seed that will take root, and cause one to be brought to You Lord. Lead me where You will have me go in this life You have given me. It is a precious gift Father, and I don't want to tarnish it Lord. I want to live it the way You would have me live it.In Jesus Precious Name I pray Amen.
Good night all!
Remember: YOU MATTER YOU ARE LOVED YOU ARE SOMEBODY
Love you all lots!

First of all, Angel, that is wonderful news!!!! I am so relieved that Kris is okay. I will try and give Kris a call this weekend - I miss her so much! Thank God she is okay and will be back soon. I work 4 10 hour days so I'm off a day in the middle of the week - Taylor is doing fine - she is a very happy child - I told Brett what you said the other day and he just smiled and said "You know that's very true - she is always so happy - just happy to be alive and with us - I wish everyone could be that easily satisfied." I do worry about her when she becomes a teenager - I want her to have boyfriends and friends to do things with - because I know that she wants to
Bonnie, hope things are going better w/ Brian - my job is going a little better (I think) - I will know more on Oct. 1 - that is when if I am going to lose my job I will. Thanks for asking. I know something will come up if I do lose it - but lets hope = pray for the best.

Sorry, that was a sudden meeting and everyone was in the conference room waiting - so, as I was saying Angel, I know I need to learn to appreciate Taylor and who she is - I just need to keep praying for patience and understanding. We are very different people in a lot of ways - everything she does she takes her sweet time and I'm always in a hurry - so you can imagine... anyway thanks for the encouragement
Kristena, welcome - I pray that your Chris will stay clean and sober - you are a wonderful person for standing behind him - I know from experience the more people you have pulling for you the more courage you draw from that. Well, BA hope you are having a good, clean & sober day - and CW I'm thinking of you - hope things are settling down in your life a little, Love & God Bless

Dear Lord,

First of all, I want to say thanks for letting our Kris be alive and well, for she is truly missed and loved. I would also like to say thanks for Brett and Taylor in my life and all of the good friends and family that I have because I know some are not as fortunate as I am.
Lord please watch over Bonnie and keep her faith and courage strong while she is dealing with Brian's addiction. Please help Brian to overcome his addiction and to become and stay clean and sober - I pray for BA and myself to stay away from the evils of alcohol - I pray that you are watching over our friend CW and helping her deal with her father and sons drug problem Lord, I pray that I have the patience and understanding it takes to be a good mother to Taylor and a good girlfriend to Brett - I pray I can control my temper when he says things that push my buttons - Lord, help me in my job and help me to do a good job and to work hard - please keep Brett and I from spending so much money gambling - I pray for happiness and peace for all of us here on this site - and in between our happiness when there are sad trying times I pray that we can give our problems over to you. I would also like to say a prayer for my mom who deserves nothing but wonderful things to happen to her. Look out for her Lord, when my dad does not. Amen

A quick note before I leave for the day. I just want to say I can hear the joy in BA's post. I thank God that she is so happy and doing well. I also want to thank God for letting you all find out that Kris is doing ok. I do not know her, but I could tell how worried you all were about her. Thank you for all of your prayers. Things seem to be somewhat at a standstill, but I am not giving up hope. Have a great evening and, until tomorrow, God bless everyone. Bonnie

Dear Lord, I come to you now with praise and thanksgiving for another beautiful day. Thank you for blessing BA with the strength to make the decision to go back to school and improve herself. Lord, you know I am praying on that same decision now. Please guide me in what to do. Lord please be with all of us here as we travel home from another day at work. Please watch over all of my new friends on this site and give them the peace and guidence to face another day. Please be with Brian while he is away from home, again. Keep him strong and help him stay away from the temptation of the drugs. I bring lay this all at your feet. In your name AMEN

Good Afternoon everyone, Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Friday and a safe and enjoyable weekend. Quigley I am so happy that so feel so well. I will pray for you this weekend and everyday to have the strength to stay away from the booze. You know deep in your heart you do not need it and that your family needs you sober. They will love you either way, but it is so much better for everyone. I am also praying for your relationship with Brett and for your patience with your daughter. I had a meeting with Paigeís teacher and she, in turn, had a talk with Paige and things seem to be going better in the morning. Thank God for even the smallest miracles. Kristena, I will pray for Chris to remain strong. I know your fears and feel your pain. Brian is acting up again and I am really dreading this weekend. Isnít that awful to feel that way. After he had told me of his problem, he had made arrangements for me to pick up his check so he wouldnít have the money to support his habit. Well, the past three weeks he has gotten his check and I have no idea what he is doing with it. He is giving me part for the bills, but I am so scared that he is using again. With him being away from home, it is possible for him to do it and me not even know. Please pray that we can make it through all of this. I am at the end of my rope and ready to let go. I have asked God for guidance, telling him I canít do it without him and ask him to open whatever door I need to go through. If it means ending this relationship and moving on, that is what I will do. I do love my husband with all my heart, but I canít live being this unhappy anymore. I want some peace in my life. Hereís to a blessed weekend for all. Bonnie

Dear Lord, I come to you know with prayers of hope for a calm weekend. Lord, you know what is in Brianís heart. Please help him to remain strong and give me the guidance that I so desire. Lord, help me not to question everything he does and to remain calm when things donít go my way. Lord you know the control freak that I am; help me to let go of that and to have a more peaceful home life. Help Brian to see what he is doing to his family. I am so scared that I have lost him. Please be with Quigley and BA and help them to have a safe and sober weekend. Lord, please be with Kristena and Chris. Help Chris and Brian to remain strong and open their eyes to your good works. Please be with CW and Angel and help them with all their struggles. In your name I pray, AMEN

God bless all and in my prayers daily and nightly,\Bettyann

Good Evening to you all:
Cindy I never recieved an e-mail from you? Hope all are well, working this weekend and don't have a day off till Wed but then not really off because Im working all day at the Docotors office to shadow a Medical asst(my choice)..I learn from watching them and the lady like me so I only have 1 day Thurs to finish my cleaning etc..I can't say I have not had any beers the last week but I now have come to a realization:
Im trying to find BALANCE in all areas of my life, so Im no longer going to put myself down when I sometimes have a beer,I will NEVER go back to that alcoholic nightly drinking I was but now after praying, I dont see it a problem having a beer now and then at dinner with friends etc,,I got off work tonight and had 1 real beer and then the rest of night O'duls...You can't get down on yourself when you sometimes fail but I feel Im not failing because I dont now drink nightly and I only once in awhile drink a real beer and not get drunk to escape like I used to, so I feel Ive come along way and if I choose to have a beer now and then I wont downgrade myself because I feel Im doing nothing wrong..Its called a social drinker, before I USED alcohol for every excuse in my life, tried to drink, get drunk and hide from my real feelings.......Now I feel and face my problems face on, and sometimes with people with dinner I do drink 2 beers but as long as Im not harming me or anyone else I dont see it as a problem..I had a bad day at work so thats why I bought O'duls tonight and that works just fine with me. I love school and am learning lots and like the people in my class so that keeps me busy.I pray for you all and feel for you all, and Bonnie you hang in there, I no its hard to trust and addict, believe me Ive been there and kicked out,He has to prove himself and you just have to trust God..It will be either it works out or God leads you to another relationship where there is happiness, all you can do at this point is pray for him and not point the finger at him, somtimes people dont change till they loose everything and then and only then they realized they scrooded up..I dont mean to be blunt but I do no from experience God works in his timing and things really do happen for a reason. I pray for you all to have a great weekend and I will be praying for you all daily.Im sorry if anyone is hurting or going through ruff times but Trust God and things will eventually work out, I never thought 1 year ago I could quit being a drunk and be in school to start over, well......when I hit rock bottom now my life this year is changing, just occasionly drink and now am 100% focused on school to obtain a new career and something I like for once instead of working for the money...It took awhile 5 yrs to be exact praying to god for help but now things are finally on track and we as people have to change our thought and attitude to succeed, remember NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE, THRU GOD...We all make mistakes and fail but God lifts us up to start over:
I pray for you all on this site and welcome Kristena..Keep praying ,it works, I pray GOD is with you all and answers all your needs and wants..In Jesus Name, Amen
Love yah all,
Bettyann

Good morning all,

Well, I quit my job this morning! I can't actually believe I did it but you know what - I feel relieved. I have an interview Thursday at another law firm and they gave me 2 weeks severance pay here so I should be okay as long as I get this other job. Please say a prayer for me because I really need it. I know I shouldn't have quit before I had another job but I just couldn't take the stress anymore. They were actually pretty nice about it. I talked to my supervisor on Fri and I told her I had a job offer somewhere else and she suggested that I take it - so that made me think they were going to fire me anyway. So - you might not hear from me for a week or so until I can get my computer at home hooked up - if it still works. I will be praying for all of you and thinking of you - Love & God Bless

Dear Lord,

I pray that I made the right choice htis morning on quitting this job. Please be w/ me and help me to support the family and I pray I can get this other job - Please help Brett and I to communicate better and I'm still praying for patience w/ Taylor - I was a little short on patience for everyone this weekend. Lord, watch over my friends here on this site - help them w/ the issues they are dealing watch over them and their loved ones and keep them safe.
