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.

Dear Cindy/Angel: I was really glad that you shared with me. Thank you for taking the time especially since I know it must still be painful...Your testimony gives me such HOPE. All things for a reason, right? Well John goes to court today and it's my prayer that he will be remanded to custody and have to stay in jail. His folks have bailed him out 3x!!!! Talk about insanity taking over. You are absolutely right about my daughter cursing my very existance one momemt and expecting money etc. the next. I have so much guilt because I stayed married to her physically and mentally abusive dad for 19 years and she did not have the secure, happy childhood I wished for her. I always overcompensated for her dad's misdeeds and did not discipline her enough as she was growing up. We do indeed reap what we sow. Her stepdad does truly want her to grow up and be the responsible adult that she needs to be for herself and her innocent son. Please pray that I will keep trusting the LORD with every little detail and that HIS PEACE, which passes all understanding, will keep me and guard my heart.
Thank you KRIS also for your words of encouragement and you too, Bettyann and Quigley--He is truly using all your experiences and words of wisdom to speak truth and healing...Keep up the good work!
I am keeping you all in my prayers.
With HIS LOVE,
Joni

Dear Joni~
Good morning! I am very glad I can be of some help to you!One thing you have to do, is FORGIVE yourself! I too stayed in a marriage like the one you described much too long! We had not had children for 4 years, and so when we divorced my boys were 9,7,&5. I raised them by myself. I am glad for that now, because it allowed us to be very close, and very open & honest with each other. We all have a great relationship with each other now. Ask God to forgive you for staying with him so long, and ask Him to forgive you for carrying that guilt around also, and forgive yourself for it. Then LET IT GO! We are all human, and we all make mistakes ( or what we think are mistakes anyway). Once forgiven, remember GOD forgets it, and that is what we are supposed to do also. If we dont, then we are in effect saying we dont believe God has forgiven us! Rachael is an adult, right? Then EXPECT her to act like one! Tell her you expect her to! When she tells you its all your fault, tell her youre sorry she feels that way, and ask her to forgive you for whatever you may not have done right when she was a child, but she is no longer a child, and her excuses just dont work any more. It sounds as if you have always been there for her, and she is accountable for her own actions! Its NOT easy, & you may have to tell yourself over & over that she IS responsible & accountable for her own actions, but eventually you will have such peace, and be much better equiped to help. NOT save her from her own actions, but help her, support her(NOT money)be there for her. There have been times through all of this with my son that God DID NOT answer my prayers the way I wanted them answered, but in the end, HE WAS RIGHT. HE DOES KNOW BEST, and if we keep getting in His way, He can not work. We have to turn our children over to Him, and let Him work. This too is not easy.TRUST IN THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART!! GIVE THANKS IN ALL THINGS. Even if you do not feel thankful for this situation(which I know you dont), GIVE GOD THANKS FOR IT, AND FOR THE WORK HE IS DOING IN YOU!! IT IS OUR OBEDIENCE TO GOD THAT IS IMPORTANT!! To do what HE tells us to do is the only way! Can you get through to Johns parents? If not, pray every time before you speak with them, so you are not easily swayed. Ask God to keep you of a clear mind, and to not think with your emotions when speaking with them. Stand by your convictions, and stand for GOD above all!! Love in Christ~You're in my prayers.
Cindy/Angel
Kris, Bettyann, Quigley & all else~
I will be back later gotta get to work!
Let us know how the test goes Bettyann! You will be fine with it. Hope & pray you all have a safe weekend, and keep your eyes & hearts focused on Jesus!
Love you all lots!

Dear BA, Joni, Kris, Angel & all,

Things have been going really well this past week - I think Brett and I might have figured a few things out as to why we were fighting the way we do. I know Kris that you are comparing this relationship to one that you have had but I just don't think it is the same. At least I pray that it doesn't turn out like that. I'm sorry that you had to go thru what you had to - no one should have to do that. Brett does have a temper but he is a good man and he is good to Taylor and she loves him. He needs to work on his temper and the things he says when he gets angry but then so do I.
I don't think you can ever find anyone who is perfect and doesn't have flaws. It's just if I'm willing to deal with that flaw. Right now I am. As far as Taylor goes, Brett is patient w/ her and tries to teach her things that I'm not even patient enough to do - he makes the house feel like a home and I know Taylor is craving that. Anyway, I appreciate your concern but I'm happy and I know life is not perfect so... as far as praying over and over for the same thing - well, I understand part of what you said - if I'm not going to make an effort then don't expect miracles but I have made progress compared to what I used to drink and I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to keep praying for that same thing - to keep making progress - that confused me a little. Anyway, I hope you all have a good weekend. We have both Tyler and Taylor and we're going to the rodeo and I'm looking forward to it. Talk to you all on Monday.

Dear Lord,

I pray that you help Brett and I continue to be patient and understanding with each other's feelings. I pray that you be w/ us as a family this weekend and that the kids enjoy themselves - watch over and keep us safe Lord, I pray for my friends here on this site - please help BA to keep her willpower going against alcohol and continue to fight her cravings - help Kris' health to improve - please give Joni the strength to be strong and to help her make the right decisions for her daughter's sake. I pray that I can continue to fight my urges to drink etc. and I pray that Taylor can make new friends at school and at soccer. I pray that I can be patient w/ her this weekend. I pray that she can start to lose some of her weight and that soccer will help do that. Thank you Lord for many friends and family in my life that love me . Amen

quigley;i tried 3 or 4 times to post yours before i finally got it in here, had to cut some out and i will email you later , but i want you know that;s all we want here is for her friends to be happy , to have someone that is going to give them the love and care they deserve and i am sorry i just dont think that brett is going to be that longterm relationship of happiness you are searching and looking for, but as i said for your sake i truly hope im wrong, because i am firm believer in that people can change for the better and turn their lives around and i hope that brett will be one of those . for all deserve second chances, just seems like he has had a lot of them/ i know i said i was'nt going to say anything else about it, well i guess i was'nt finished like i thought.quigley, i see this as almost like the pattern in some ways like was with f. you really did love him too and he hurt you really bad, and it took you a long time to get over that ,are you sure that you not just trying to suffice because as you said , he is good to and with taylor and she really loves him too and he doews more and patience with her than you.that makes me really sad, cause i know you really love taylor and you want the best for her and this baby is special in her own way , inmany ways , she has to have special careand i know she loves brett; but what do you think it does to her when she sees yall fighting or when he gets violent or when yall are fighting;here is two people she loves very much and she is not fully understanding why this is going on. understand what i am trying to say. this is your life, but you also have taylor to think of , you say brett is the best for yall, well quigley, good luck and i wish yall the best. i dont know what else to say, ummmmmmmm!!!!!!im just uuuuuuummmm, wish you the best girl!!!!!love always, your friend,kris

Hi Kris, Quigley,Cindy, Angel and ALL:
I am home sick, just went to the doctor and have Brochitis, didn't sleep a wink last night, left work early 6pm..Im kinda glad caz my b'f and all his friends went to the WSU game and they WILL be drinking so Im glad Im home laying on couch and taking care of myself and oh yes Studing 100 abbreviations for Mondays test!!!!! I mise well be a doctor with all the things they are teaching me hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahhahahahahahh~~~~~ Thanks for all your prayers and I never get offended, it's all from your hearts and past experience. Quigley, I so pray for your situation. I agree with Kris, it's just some signs that are familier that worry's all of us. Noone said anyone of us is perfect but a GOOD MAN does NOT throw things, hit people, smash things, say verbal abuse etc...Not saying that he doesn't have any good qualities but if thats what you like in a relaionship it is YOUR business, we are just trying to help you from what you have written. EXP..police came bye???? DO you want to live that way? DO you think he's changed just because of that 1 incident? I hope so for the 2 of you, but we allow things to happen in our lives, we make our own choices, and if he hits you again, or verbal abuse, etc...You are ALLOWING it to happen, your not setting boundaries..It's all up to you, I wish the best for you and want to see you happy, Job, man, daughter, Soberity, etc..Darling we are here for you but you really need to ask yourself what YOU want and what YOU expect from a relationship, to me this one doesn't sound healthy, Ive been there 10 yrs married, verbal abuse, controlling, jealous and I always said but Hey he's such a good man....YAH RIGHT...he wore me down to having no self confindence then my alcohol abuse started caz I hated life.etc.. What Im trying to tell you is LIFE can be good if you go after what you want. I now have a great b'f for the last 3 yrs, were looking at rings :-) and am now in school to change my career, I couldn't do it without GOD and without the 100% support from my boyfriend. Just please think deeply is this Really what you want or are you just lonely and feel this is better than being all alone? I will pray for all of you, Hope everyone has a good weekend, need to go rest,
GOd Bless all and thanks Kris for nice e-mails,
Love Bettyann

I want to say to Tommys family & friends we are the ones who suffer by this lost but I know Tommy & my brother are out of there pain & are with OUR GOD & ARE FREE AT LAST. I PRAY FOR ALL WHO LOST SOMEONE FROM ADDICTION & ALL WHO ARE STRUGGLING FROM THIS HELL GOD WILL NEVER FORSAKE HIS CHILDREN. AMEN

AMEN to Northstarrising! & Welcome. I am sorry for the loss of your brother, and I know it must hurt terribley in missing him, BUT... you are so right! " To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord" What a joyful message we have in that!
Bettyann!!! 100%!!! Thats fantastic!! I knew you could do it!! You seem to be growing by leaps and bounds, and I am sooooo proud of you!! :) Hope you are proud of you efforts too!! Sorry to hear you are sick. I was there last week. Theres been a lot sick lately! Hope you are feeling better by now! So.... you're looking at rings, huh??? :)Please, even if you don't think you need it, get some pre-marriage Christian counseling BEFORE. It really encompasses a lot, and can be very good for your future together! :)
Quigley~ As I have said before, & Kris & Bettyann,we care about you, and from what you have posted, we are concerned. You never did say why you're friends were starting to get sacred for you. You've said a few times that you think you & Brett are making progress, and then WHAM! its going on all over again. Like Bettyann said, is this the kind of life you WANT? Is it what you want for Taylor?????? Do you want her growing up thinking that this is all SHE should expect from a relationship? From a MAN? I know lots of " special needs" married couples.
In my book, a MAN does not hit , does not call other people names, does not smash things, does not tear up things, does not act like a spoiled little bratt having a tantrum, and as far as that goes NEITHER DOES A WOMAN!!!!(my opnion)You need to focus on QUIGLEY and what is good for YOU, and take care of Taylor!! If Brett is the "one" he will still be there, and he will COMPLETELY understand thats what you need to do. He needs to do the same for himself and Tyler also!! WHY are you willing to go through all of this??? Do you not think you deserve more?? YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, AND YOU CALL ON HIS NAME, SO WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO START ACTING LIKE A CHILD OF GOD??? You pray for God to watch over you AS A FAMILY!!!! YOU ARE NOT A FAMILY!! YOU ARE LIVING TOGETHER - THAT IS NOT A FAMILY IN GODS EYES!! Yes, I am upset with all this, and its because you seem to be sooo close to being able to get it right with God, but then you keep making all these choices that are just bring you down! I will keep praying for Gods will Quigley, you can count on that, and I will be here for you, no matter what happens. Kris' words are not just words!! They are TRUTH!! YOU MATTER~ YOU ARE LOVED ~ YOU ARE SOMEBODY!!!
I love you all dearly, and will be praying for ya all
Love in Christ Jesus,
Cindy/Angel

It's me again! John Tesh is one of my favorite Pop Christian singers, and these are the words of one of my favorite of his songs. Its also my prayer for all.
Open the eyes of my heart Lord,
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You,
I want to see You
Open the eyes of my heart Lord,
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You
See You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your Glory
Pour out Your power and love
as we sing Holy, Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy, Holy
I want to see You
I want to see You
Open the eyes of my heart Lord,
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You
Then the whole thing repeates a couple of times. It's kinda fast, and just BEAUTIFUL!
Next time you are in a mall, or music store, look for it , and put on some head phones, and give it a listen! It's John Tesh - A Deeper Faith.
Talk Later
God Bless you all

Joni, you are in my prayers, and remember: God is RIGHT THERE beside you! :) ALWAYS!!!!

Dear Quigley: I know from the bottom of my heart how you feel when you desperately want to make a relationship work. I, too, lived 19 years with a man who smashed things, was very verbally abusive and a few times even physically abusive. I would always rationalize that he was a good Christian man and I married him for better or worse. It wasn't until I went to a Christian woman's retreat and was telling my friends that I needed God to part the clouds and tell me it was ok to leave that things changed. The speaker without knowing me stopped mid sentence and said someone in this audience needs to know that it is NEVER God's will to live with abuse and submission does not mean living as a doormat. That was the push I needed. I applied for an apt that had a long waiting list but they gave me a place and LOWERED the rent! Now you know that doesn't usually happen. My ex husband went to counselling and things were really good for a while but I did not have God's approval to return home but I did anyway after 9 months and stayed over 4 more years with everything STILL the same. I did not really even know what was normal behavior until I met my new husband. It's my heartfelt prayer that you keep in constant prayer listening for whatever the LORD would have you do and that HIS protection would be on Taylor and you in all your circumstances. I know now that alot of damage was done to my daughter growing up in that explosive environment and she never learned good coping skills that we are seeing in her drug abuse now.

Bettyann: It was great that you aced your test! God truly gives us the desires of our hearts when we acknowledge Him in all we do. Hope you are feeling better this new week.

I also pray that Kris you are feeling better. Your posts mean so much to me. I hope you can write again soon.

Cindy/Angel: Thank you again for keeping me in your prayers. I have not heard from my daughter since an angry message on my machine last week. She still thinks I am only trying to take her baby away and she wants monetary help to get out on her own and angry that I am not giving in. John was supposed to go to court on Fri but I did not hear from his mom which probably means he's back in the house and she is afraid to tell me since she always talks the tough love talk at the family rehab meetings but stays enabling...
Thank you Lord for caring so much about each one of your children and that all the hairs on our head are numbered, all the tears are counted in a bottle and when we are struggling so much under the weight of opression that it is then that YOU carry us.
With HIS Love,
Joni

Good morning to all~
Joni, thank you for sharing your story.There were parts in it that I too needed to hear(bet Kris is grinning reading that statement! haha).What IS emotional abuse? What does it encompass? Anyone? I KNOW what being a doormat is!!
We need not to struggle under the weight of oppression Joni! John 8:36 says" If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed"!!!!(Bind the spirit of oppression!! In Jesus Name) I peter 5:7 Says"Casting all your care upon Him: for He careth for you"!!!(Loose the Lords peace!!! In Jesus Name! Praise God we have His promises to stand on!! HE is so good to us who believe!! HE IS OUR REFUGE!!! I will pray also for John, and his Mom. You just keep standing strong in the Lord. He will see you through this. Remember also: This too shall pass.
Bettyann, Kris Quigley, & all~ I will be back later. I have the day off, so I'm going to go spend time at school with my grandson!! :) :)
Love you all in Christ Jesus our Redeemer!!
Cindy/Angel

joni' hello,how are you.thank you for the things you said to quigley, and i am so sorry that you have had to go through so much trails and pain in your liffe , and i just lift you up so much ,and i think it is honorable the faith you continue TO HOLD FOR OUR LORD JESUS, GOD OUR FATHER,for you know HE IS THERE TO HELP US WEATHER ANY STORM.HE will bring us through them.i am so sorry that you are facing such hardships with your family, cindy knows exactly where you are at, she has been right there.my heart just goes out to you.andit is so hard to want to walk away , but you must and you do have to do this, for your sake and for hers. she is going to have to be willing to do this for her and that baby christian, and right now she does'nt.neither her nor john either one have the means to take care of baby christian and i think that is heartbreaking that they would rather go get high, than spend a night of being entertained on the greatest high they could have, the joy of watching their child .joni, until they truly admit they have a promblem and fully accept the Lord into their hearts as their Saviour;they will continue to be lost to the things that are of any importance ,,because to them, they are not doing anything wrong, to them their way of thinking is it's their life and they will do with it as they please.and that is so very sad , because it is such a loosing attitude and so much suffering is involved. do not let her manipulate or con you!!!!!do not let her fool you into thinking she has changed ,only to get in your good graces, only to do it all over again!!!addicts and junkies are very good at that.they will and say anything, they dont care. me and cindy was talking on the phone last night and i opened a little more and told her about dobber, the last one i was with 13 years ago well actually now it's been almost 14;and i told her about one night when him and a buddy of his that they were both wasted thought it would be very funny to play a very cruel joke on me; so they came in, woke me up out of a sound sleepand LITERALLY degraded me for over an hour. they came with this concoxsion that dobber owed kevin a lot of money for drugs ,and he was going to cut him pieace by pieace , unless i did exactly as i was told,so for an hour, they made me crawl onmy hands andknees like a dog and bring them beers and this guy he probaly weighed over 300 lbs, and he would dobber, you better tell her ,she better do what i say , or she will watch as i cut you inpieaces and then do it toher. so for an hour , i crawled o hands and knees and done everything i was told to do; then when they finally decided to tell it was all a joke,iwent to the bathroom and i broke down and cried so hard, i did'nt think i would ever stop,do you see they dont care, they dont care how bad they hurt, degrade you, humilate you,all that they care about is where they can get the next high.i do hope the day comes when your daughter will wake and realize that this life is a no win situation and come back to reality and be the daughter ,you so long to have back.my heart goes out to you,and here is my email;littlecreekwillow@hotmail.com.my prayers and thoughts are with you. love always,kris.
