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.

Hello all,

Kris, thanks for the advice - I did break up w/ Brett yesterday - I have no idea if I did the right thing or not - I guess time will tell. Being alone is no fun but being miserable w/ someone is no fun either - my friends are starting to be scared for me - I'mm so confused - BA - I hope things get better w/ you and your bfriend - do you mean that he still drinks? I wasn't quite clear on that - I'm not doing very good on being sober - but I'll keep tring. Dear Lord, please be w/ BA - help her to stay sober and bring her life peace and happiness and please watch over Kris and keep her healthy and feeling good - I pray that I can do the right thing when it comes to Brett - please help me to make the right decision and stick to it. Please help Taylor to understand what I'm doing and why - I pray that I can still make it financially w/out Brett's help - please help me to get back on the road to sobriety amen

The Serenity prayer that was Tommy's favorite is also one of my favorites. I am very grateful to the family of Tommy for creating this prayer circle where so many people can come and share their concern for each other and be comforted words of encouragement & with 'God's'love. I know that others are praying for me to have strength to fight the battles that my family is now facing and I am grateful for the prayers--keep praying for me that I will know what to do as far as my daughter Rachael's rehab and the situation with us caring for her baby son Christian. Right now she isn't eligible for in-patient long term rehab because she is still working and doesn't want to lose her job so she won't go in. She wants her baby to stay with her boyfriend's parents. Please pray that tomorrow will be the definite day that her fiance goes into a 28 day rehab. She needs to be away from him--please pray that the LORD will make a way for her and that she will surrender to HIM...
"The Lord hears good people when they cry out to HIM, and HE saves them from all their trubles."
Psalm 34:17

Dear Lord, I ask that you watch over and guide my husband, Jessie, right now. He is an addict and fighting those demons to stop. Satan, In the name of Jesus, I rebuke you from Jessie, from our home, and from our family. Drugs are NO longer wanted in our home. I ask dear Lord that you watch over our family and keep us in your loving care. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Good Evening to all~

The Lord comforts the mourners: Psalm 147:3 HE HEALETH THE BROKEN IN HEART, AND BINDETH UP THEIR WOUNDS. LET GOD HEAL YOUR BROKEN HEARTS!CURL UP IN HIS ARMS WHEN YOU HURT, AND WHEN YOU CRY. HE WILL HOLD YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, IF YOU WILL BUT TRUST IN HIM TO DO SO. CAST ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM. WAIT UPON THE LORD WITH GLADNESS. HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU. NEVER!!!
I Cornithains 14:33 FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION:BUT OF PEACE. DID YA HEAR THAT???!!! WELL, IF GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION~WHO DO YA THINK IS???? YEAH! RIGHT! satan!!!

IF WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO DO IS THE LORDS WILL THEN DO JUST THAT!!!THE HELL WITH WHAT THIS WORLD SAYS, BECAUSE AS BELIEVERS WE ARE IN THIS WORLD-NOT OF IT!!SO WHATS IT GONNA BE?

NONE OF US ARE PERFECT - A FAR CRY FROM IT- BUT WE ARE REDEEMED THROUGH CHRIST! REPENT, FORGIVE YOURSELVES, ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS, FORGIVE OTHERS WHATEVER THEY HAVE DONE, AND ASK GOD TO CARRY YOU THROUGH THIS LIFE WHEN IT GETS SO HARD YOU DON'T THINK YOU CAN MAKE IT. REST IM HIM. REST IN THE KNOWING THAT HE IS IN CONTROL. TURN YOUR LIFE OVER TO HIM, AND TRUST HIM WITH IT.KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIM! SURROUND YOURSELVES WITH HIS GOODNESS AND HIS TEACHINGS, AND HIS PRAISES. SO WHAT IF IT MEANS A WHOLE NEW LIFESTYLE OR ALL NEW FRIENDS??? WHAT IS YOUR PRESENT LIFESTYLE GETTING YOU? ARE YOUR CURRENT FRIENDS GONNA SAVE YOU FROM HELL?ARE THEY GIVING YOU GODLY ADVICE? DO THEY WANT YOU TO DO GODS WILL? I GET REALLY UPSET WITH THE WORKINGS OF satan IN PEOPLES LIVES!! he HAS NO RIGHT TO DO THAT!! REBUKE HIM IN JESUS NAME AND HE HAS TO FLEE!! GOD SAID SO AND THATS THAT!! Every GOOD THING comes from GOD. so if its not GOOD, where do ya think it comes from??? WE HAVE TO BE EVER WATCHFUL! WITH GODS HELP, WE CAN BE.GOD CARES!! ABOUT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT CINDY/ANGLE; WHAT IS GOOD COMES FROM GOD AND WHAT IS NOT GOOD COMES FROM SATAN.YOU HAVE TO BE A SPIRITUAL PERSON AND BELIEVE AND HAVE FAITH AND YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. I AM CURRENTLY GOING TO AL-ANON TO LEARN HOW TO LOVE MY ALCOHOLIC INSTEAD OF HAVING ANGER INSIDE AND GOD IS THE ONE AT MY SIDE RIGHT NOW. TRUST IN THE LORD AND WAIT FOR ANSWERS OR SIGNS WHEN YOU PRAY TO HIM BECAUSE NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT AND IF IT DOES JUST CALL IT A MIRACLE BECAUSE I BELIEVE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. THERE IS NO GREATER PAIN THAT TO LOOSE A LOVED ONE, I KNOW AND I STILL FIND MYSELF WITH A KNOT IN MY STOMACH WHEN I THINK ABOUT THEM. THE LORD GIVETH AND THE LORD TAKETH AWAY TO A MUCH MORE WONDERFUL PLACE IN THE HEAVENS. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND KEEP YOU SAFE.

Welcome All the new people,
Angel and Kris:
Thanks for your words. What I meant Quigley, is yes my b'f drinks like when we go out to dinner or to a football game that we have season tickets too, Kris he is NOT mad that I have a beer here and now He is MAD that I have asked him do you really need to get drunk at the games just because your friends do? Remember I also did this 1 yr ago, all us friends got wasted before the football games at WSU....Now that Im not getting drunk its disturbing to me(his friends) and I get angry and cause a fight..I NO I'm NOT better than anyone else for "god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that Whoever belief in him shall be saved"..I just get angry at times when my b'f or his friends say whats the big deal having 1 or 2 beers? Well yes sometimes I can just handle 1 or 2 beers, other times depending on my day and mood I want more so I stay away from it..I'm just confused lately because I DO love Jesus and I am learning to be a social drinker to get along with all my friends etc,,,I DONT have to drink, many times they see me drink O'duls and accept me for me, but when I have a bad week and get around people at games or go out with friends I DO end up drinking 1 -3 beers then quit while they all get drunk..I feel Ive come along way and yes Kris the choice is up to me, but in time I will no more? I dont drink nightly and I dont abuse it like I used to, you see, Im happy now with my Direction in life so I dont want to mess it up also, I dont want to treat all my friends and family like Im a Finatic~~~~~I dont want to come across better than any of them and I dont want to make them feel umcomfortable, for Jesus loves us ALL just the way we are( good and bad)..I pray for Fiance nightly to get closer with GOd, he believes but thats it, and hes very happy Ive come this far with my past drinking problem, I told him we need to Join church once I get a job with Sundays off and he agrees, he's so willing to go to church and learn. Enough about me, just wanted to VENT and tell Angel and Kris it's not that Im slipping it's that Im growing and now starting to neglect people in my life that dont have God first and thats not right>I need to pray for them instead of Judge them and stay away from them, thats NOT ME..Im a people person and I love all types of people weather they are Gay, Addicts, Non believers etc..I want to try and pray and help them thru my experiences in life for sure( God no's IM not perfect) and I never want to be, whats inportant here is this:
We put HIM first and we never keep not trying to please him, and we Always go to him for advice, peace in our minds and hearts, go to him in times of confusion, basically GOD doesnt give us a license to SIN....but we all do sin and always will, 1 cigertte Kris is no different than 1 beer or 1 hit of pot, etc....It's all addicitons that we all have in differnet ways of coping..I quit thank god smoking in June but still have a beer here and now, yet others quit drinking and smoke...In the end it's all Unhealthy for oour bodies and that's what counts..Miss you all and will say a prayer for you all before bed( which is now 1125pm)..had a good night at school got a 92% on my Final so Im happy:-)
Good night to all, and remember God loves you no matter what and so do I,
I pray all your prayers come true, Trust in God and things will work out one way or another( In His Timing)
Bettyann :-)

Good Morning all~
Just a quick note! First ~ to not hang around with certain people does not mean to stand in judgment of them, and our Heavenly Father tells us ~ do not be uneaqually yoked! We as believers are not to be carrying on, or out partying with non-believers! Its much too easy to pull someone down, than to lift them up!!Maybe God is pulling at your heart strings Bettyann, if you are no longer enjoying being around drunks?Maybe God is opening up your eyes to His understanding? How can we ask God for peace of mind and heart, if we are not doing what He instructs us to do to belong to Him? YES! Pray for them! Pray for your enemies! That doesn't mean you have to BE with them or hang out! Like I said~ we gotta stand for something, and I WILL STAND FOR GOD AND WHATS RIGHT IN HIS SIGHT, BY WHAT HE TELLS US IS RIGHT, AND I WILL NOT WAVER ~ NO MATTER WHAT THE PRICE! I WILL ALWAYS STAND BY MY CONVICTIONS, AND DEFEND MY GOD. I'm sorry Bettyann, but you said you were learning to be a social drinker so you can get along with all your friends. Right? What are THEY doing for YOU to get along with you? I hope you all have wonderful days in Christ Jesus! I will be praying for all of you. I love you all dearly~you mean so much, and are so special! :)
God Bless You
Love
Cindy~Angel

Hey Guys - thanks Angel for the pat on the back but don't be too proud of me because I told him he could move back in today. I missed him and I really want to make this work. We're going to give it another try. Keep us in your prayers. I am really bored at my new job - I'm trying to do my best but I'm still looking for another - boy I guess I'm never happy - BA -I'm sorry you're having such a tough time right now - I have been where you are many times. And I usually give in and just drink w/ everyone. I know it is not fair for me to expect everyone to quit drinking just becuz I did - but it always bothered me when my husband did. Especially when I was pregnant. We fought a lot about that - he said why did he have to stop when he wasn't the one pregnant - and I told him because he was supposed to be supporting me and helping me thru the pregnancy - your boyfriend has to think about it that way because if he doesn't want you to drink - he should help support you by slowing down too. But making him do that is another story. I'll pray for you. love ya.

PS Kris, I got your emails and sent you one back - haven't seen you on here for a few - hope you're feeling ok. Love & God Bless

Dear Lord,
I pray that you can help BA to stay sober and myself too - please give us the willpower it takes to be sober - I pray that BA's bfriend can try to be more understanding about the drinking w/ BA and slow down on his drinking also. Please be w/ Brett and I thru these trying times w/ his ex - wife and court and our fighting -
I pray that you can help Brett and I to understand one another better and to communicate better - please let this court battle end soon - I pray for fairness in all the judge's decisions help me Lord to work hard at my new job even tho I'm bored out of my skull - I pray you can direct me onto the path of the job I'm supposed to be at. Amen

Good Evening guys,
Im at school killing some time since I'm here early. Thanks for all the advice and prayers. Todd my b'f doesnt usually drink all week, it's on the weekends while he's watching Fantasy football or he drinks if we go out to dinner.We are doing good, I just need to stick to my values and choices and drink O'duls then we have no problems..I pray things work out for you this time Quigley and sorry about your job, something WILL come along.I pray you 2 can be there for each other with RESPECT, LOVE, Patience and Understanding. I pray this is a "Healthy" relationship and no violence and bad words( not that it hasn't already happened. I've been there before in the past with bad moods, throwing things, getting drunk and hitting Todd etc...thats when I gave it up and the doct put me on Prozac and it's been 5 months now and my moods and PMS are much better. I read bible today, Matthew~~showed it too my b'f about not to worry about tomorrow for God will take care of us, just worry about today.Just try and take 1 day at a time and think this may be your last and put forward 100% in whatever you want to do, Job, boyfriend, kids, GOD....etc..Only God can chage us around but WE must ask him for help and give it all up too him.Yes there are days we are tempted but Pray at those times and seek GOD and it will pass.I pray for all, Kris, Angel, Cindy, Renee, and all the new folks on here that time will heal all your wounds and pain, and that all suffering addicitions will come to an end. I pray for all on here to find inner strength to get thru each day and TRUST GOD will not lead you estray, He is our only hope, answer and we should only worry about what HE thinks for thats where we will be spending eternal life, I pray for all to have a good week one full of happiness, good health, peace , and I pray God leads you all in the right direction in life and you end up doing His will, ask and you shall recieve, knock and the door will open, as Angel says, we can't serve 2 masters, one will end up wining and the other will loose? We can't loose with GOd so we MUST choose to serve him and all things will work out!!!!!!!!!!! Just Rebuke the Devil and ask for his Demons to flea and they will, In Jesus name I pray,
Amen
God bless you all,
Bettyann :-)

Please GOD my hands are open I give to you these burdens knowing that you will dispose of them and see me through these troubled waters. Please GOD don't let me drown. Thank you Dear LORD for those blessings I do have and I pray that you will help mereflect upon them often. Just to remind LORD there is more to this life than addiction(s). These things I ask in the name of JESUS CHRIST amen.

Hello to everyone. I had not realized how long it had been since I had posted anything. I had read your post, but didnít seem to know what to say. When the devil attacks, he hits hard. I am not sure, but I think Brian may have had a relapse. After working all the daysí straight, they finally let him have the weekend off. Friday night, we went out and had an enjoyable kid free evening together and then on Saturday we had a family day. We had been shopping for about 4 hours, when he said he was tired and wanted to go home, so that is what we did. But when we got home, he said he was bored and needed some time to himself. He stayed around the apartment for a while and then said, ďPaige is getting on my nerves and I have to go for a few hours.Ē Well, a few hours turned into all night. I did the best I could and did not call looking for him until 1:30, but he did not answer his phone He said he came home around 3:00am but couldnít get in because I had dead bolted the door, so he slept in his truck in the back parking lot. He still has not told me what he did or whom he was with, but I do know that he had spent the rest of his paycheck. We then got into it about that and he said he didnít need any money and didnít understand why I was so mad about him spending all of HIS money. I couldnít believe he would say that, because in our family, all the money we bring in has always been OUR money. He works out of town all week and has to have cash to eat on. Did he plan on not eating? That is what he told me he would do. I told him not to call me asking for money and he said he wouldnít even bother to call at all while he was gone. So on Sunday I took the evening and just went by myself driving and thinking and trying to figure out what I am supposes to do. I did more crying and praying that night than I think I ever had. Then I did something really stupid. When I got home that night, I hid my wallet because I was afraid he would take what little cash I had. He must have been looking for it, because he got mad when he didnít see it laying around like it normally is and he told me if I was going to hide things from him, I might as well go ahead and file for a divorce because he didnít want to live with me if I was going to be like that. All I can think is that he must have been looking for it and that makes me wonder what he would have done if he would have found it. Well he did call on Monday night, but it wasnít to ask for money, it was to ask a question about a sports team schedule and we talk like nothing had happened, the fight was never brought up. That is how it always is. There is never a settling talk or an ďIím sorryĒ, it is just swept under the rug and I am supposed to forget it ever happened. Now it is Wednesday and he is in town and he is acting again like things are just fine. This morning he did ask me for money and I had this little smile on my face but never said anything about it. He said never mind and he would just drink tea from home and not eat lunch. I ask him if he felt it wasnít any fun to go with out money. He said that he never said it would be fun, but he could do just fine without money. He later did ask for money because his need for nicotine got bigger than his sense of pride. Am I supposed to keep living like this? Is it ever gong to get better? I am now really at the end of my rope and the knot is getting smaller. I am so sorry for such a long post, but you folks are the only people that I have to talk to. I donít have that many friends around here, or at least ones that will take the time to listen. Guess I need to find a few new friends, huh? Please pray for Brian and I now more than ever. I have figured out that I donít need him in my life, but I WANT him in my life as a loving husband and father for Paige. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I will be praying for all of you. God Bless, Bonnie

PS I will be back with my prayers for all of us.

Dear Lord, I come to you now on bended knee and ask you for your blessing for everyone on this site and all others that are suffering from an addiction, or trying to make a life changing decision. First, I want to thank you Lord for a beautiful day and that I did wake up healthy this morning with food in my home and a place to go to work. I know there are so many people that do not even have these blessings. Thank you for my beautiful daughter who is so smart and loving. She is such a blessing to me God and I ask for your continued blessings with her health and her love for school. Now dear Lord I come to you and ask for your guidance for Quigley and Brett. Lord, you have decided that man should not be alone, please help these two to realize how much they love and need each other and give them the patients and understanding to work things out. I ask this for Brian and myself, also. Also, please open a new door for her where her job is concerned. It makes life so much easier when we are blessed with a job where we feel we can contribute to our families and give back to You. Please be with Taylor during any arguments that might happen in the home. Please let her know that she is loved and that you are watching over her. Lord, I ask that you be with Kris and her family while they attend the funeral of a loved one. Please let them know that the family member is at peace now and will be resting in heaven with you and they will all meet again when you decide the time is right. Please be with Kris and help her be comfortable and bring her ammonia levels down. Let her get the rest she needs to feel better. I now ask for strength and guidance for Betty Ann and Todd. Please let Todd see that she needs his support to handle the drinking problem and let him know that she is not condemning him when he drinks. Help BA to continue to do well in school and to continue to grow in her walk with you. Lord, please be with Cindy and AE. Lord, watch over them and help them with whatever their needs are. I also pray for everyone else on this sight that is dealing with an addiction, whether it is theirs or that of a loved one. Lord please guide them to you and protect them from harms way. Lord, please be with Brian and I. Help us to communicate and to provide a loving home free of insults and anger for Paige. Help Brian to be strong and fight the drug demons. Help me to regain trust in him, so I can feel comfortable when he needs his free time, that I may not accuse him of wrong doing when he returns home. Help him to realize that I need him just as much as he needs me and that we both need You in our life. I ask this all in your precious name, AMEN

It does seem that everyone on this site is having a bad time lately but we have to all remember that Satan roams around as a lion seeking whom he may devour and we have to put on the whole armour of God to withstand the fiery darts of our enemy. It's a good thing that we can turn to HIS word for comfort in our times of distress. I love the Psalms because there were real people with really trying circumstances that we can all relate to. If we keep our minds on HIM the PEACE that passes all understanding will be ours. Jesus said it's HIS PEACE, not the peace that the world gives but the PEACE to know that even in our darkest hours HE'S there--NEVER to leave us or forsake us. Keep on believing, keep looking up...

Good Morning everyone!
I've been ill, so haven't posted in a few days.Am feeling better, and getting some much needed rest!
WELCOME to all the new folks! You have come to a really good place! God is still on the throne!! God is still in control, and God loves us all unconditionally! What a great and wonderful God we have! Thank You Lord for loving us, and never leaving us! The book of James gives us much instruction on how we are to live our lives. I find it also pretty easy to understand. It is also a pretty short book~but very well worth your time to read it! God tells us in no uncertain terms how we are to live to have the fullness of His grace. I pray we all strive for this. We just have to have the conviction in our hearts that what ever the world thinks - just doesn't matter! Gods way IS the only way! There are answers to every question we might have in life, if we will but take the time to read His Word to us! It's all there! Not MY will~but THY will be done Lord.I pray for all to come to this understanding. Our Father KNOWS best for us.I'll be back.

I came across this the other day, that a good friend had given me some years ago, and thought it might help someone out there who is struggeling with a loved one who has an addiction.
To "let go" does not mean to stop caring, it means I can't do it for someone else.
To "let go" is not to cut myself off, it's the realization I can't control another.
To "let go" is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequence.
To "let go" is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.
To "let go" is not to try to change or blame another, its to make the most of MYSELF.
To " let go" is not to fix, but to be supportive.
To "let go" is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
To "let go" is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to let others affect their destines.
To "let go" is not to be protctive, its to permit another to face reality.
To "let go" is not to deny, but to accept.
To "let go" is not to nag, scold, or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To "let go" is not to adjust every thing to my own desires, but to take each day as it comes, and cherish MYSELF in it.
To "let go" is not to critize and regulate anybody, but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To "let go" is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
To "let go" is to fear less, and to love more.
Please read this a couple of times, to allow it to really sink in.
Joni, How are things with your daughter, baby, and boyfriend going? You just keep your eyes on Jesus, and take care of that baby!Christian needs you! Why does she preferr he stay with her b'f parents? If I may ask. Does she blame you for her addiction? A lot of addict children do, so don't be too hard on yourself if she does! I will be praying for all of you. Does her b'f want to go into rehab?Do you keep a journal about Christian? What goes on in his life, in his presence? It's a good idea. A 28 day program honestly just doesnt do much good. Its usually just not enough time. I don't want to dishearten you, just don't want you to think that if it does happen, that every thing will be ok in 28 days. Never give up the fight for that baby tho! God will get you through this~KEEP YOUR FAITH NO MATTER WHAT THINGS SEEM LIKE!
Silverbay~ What a testiment you have! Praise God! Glad you are here.
Overwhelmed~ I am sorry for the loss of your neice. I pray for peace and guidence for her husband, and two children.Also for you with your sons four children. I pray for the strenght needed by all. God will see you through this also.God Bless you. Thank God you are there for these children. They are precious gifts.
Lisa~ For you and your husband Jessie I pray. Its a rough road, but not an impossible one with the help and guidence of our Lord Jesus. Keep your mind focused on Him always.
mstennesse2u~ I pray for whatever decisions you are facing, that God will direct you, and lead you to the best possible answer for your needs. Listen, pray, and search His Word, and let Him direct you. Stay strong in your faith.
Bonnie~ I dont know how long you are supposed to live this way.What does BRIAN want? Or do you know? You said you want him to be a loving husband, and Father to Paige, is why I am asking.As his wife, you do deserve to know where the family money is going, and where he is spending his time. If he were not ashamed of it, would he not tell you? The only advise I can give you is to stay in prayer, and give it all to God, and rest in knowing YOU are doing what God wants you to do.I will keep you in my prayers also.
CW~ I pray things are getting better for you, your sister, and your sons. What happened in court? You stay strong, and give your hurt and anger to God. Look for a way to be able to forgive your Father. You will recieve much peace from it, your burden will be much less, and you will have the peace you need in doing so.
Shelia~ I pray that you stay strong in the Lord~ keep looking to Him for your answers. God Bless you.
Love in Christ-
Cindy/Angel

KRIS, BETTYANN, AND QUIGLEY!
I wouldn't leave you guys out! You are all very dear to me, and I pray for you all daily. Quigley, I hope you made the right decision in taking Brett back, and not just going down the same road that leads to another blow up! If some one is TRULY sorry for things they have done, there are changes made,and not just temporary ones.One thing you said when all this was going on, is that you don't think he would be violent towards you. What do you call knocking over a vase of flowers, and punching holes in beer cans with a knife is? It IS violent behavour, and in your presence, and what is to keep him from going after you, in one of these uncontroable outbursts? WHY are your friends starting to be scared for you? You will never be alone as long as you keep God first in your life, ya know. I am concerened for you and Taylor. How is she handling all this confusion?
Bettyann~ I'm glad you are doing well in school. Hows the drinking going? I really dont want you to be upset with me, but why learn to be a "social" drinker, if what you WANT is to not drink at all? Youre a great person, and I'm sure your friends, and b'f will still accept you, and you can still have fun if you don't drink at all. If they didn't~ then they wern't what you thought they were. I hope you are getting the rest you need to keep up with your packed schedule!! When you work the 1-10 on weekends, does that include Friday nights too? Or do you get at least one night to yourself? Hope so! :)
Kris~ I am sorry for your loss. They are with God, so rest easy. Thanks for the email,and I will try and call ya this weekend as I said before. Hope you are feeling much better, and enjoying each day as God so freely gives us! You are all in my prayers and thoughts always
Love you guys lots!!
Cindy/Angel
