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.

Good Morning to all & WELCOME Julsrn!!!
You have come to a place where you are welcomed with open arms. Lots of love in Christ Jesus, friendship, and fellowship. We have all either been affected by a loved one who is an addict, or are addicts. We do understand, and we do tell it like it is. If you haven't read back much, please do. You will find lots of encouragment, love, and prayers. I thank God for Tommy (whose cousin started this site in his memory) because if it were not for Tommys life, we would not all be here in the fellowship we have together. We are close, and are like family to each other. What decision is it that you have made? If I may ask.May the Lord be with you, and keep you always.
Hey everyone else!
How are you all doing? How did the test go on abbrevations Bettyann? How are you feeling? Hope you are better by now!I am so glad to hear you are doing so good with the drinking!!!Praise God To Him be the Glory! All things are possible through Him that strengthens us!!!
Quigley~ Where ya been? Are you still working? I remember you saying you'd come on here during your lunch breaks! Are you O.K.? I do wish you would come back, and let us know how you are! I pray you are alright.We miss you. :( Kris~ Thank you for your kind words,and your prayers. What strength in God you show in your sharing your story with all! God is so good to us, isn't He? I hope it helps just one!! :) Yes, it is always good to talk with you. I look foreward to our talks. Hows your arm? Getting better? Hope so! What have you found out about your Momma ? Joni~ I noticed you were not on here yesterday. I pray that you are alright also, and just keep hanging onto God for your strength! CW~ Where are YOU? Bonnie? YOU?
Heavenly Father,
I come to You in Jesus Name, and ask that You help all those in here in whatever they are needing in their lives. I pray that they are completly surrendering their lives to You Lord, and letting You lead the way through their lives. I thank You for the fellowship in Christ that You have given us here. Help us all to be a blessing to everyone we meet in our lives Lord. I pray that the love of Jesus shines brightly in all of us, so that You may be Glorified. I thank You for all the good things in life Lord, and also for the trials that I go through as I know that they worketh patience. Let us always think on the good things in life Lord, and to always remember how very blessed we are Lord. Help us Lord I pray to be ever watchful for the devil lieth around waiting for whom he may devour. I pray Your Angels surround all those who are in need. Weather it be for safety, for comfort, for guidance, for knowledge, for protection. Whatever the needs are, and let us always acknowledge You for every good thing. Let us never forget to give You Lord all the praise and Glory. For without You ~ we are nothing. You love, and kindness, and longsuffering towards us is what sustains us. Thank You Father for all Your greatness to us. I pray for peace for the addicts Lord, and for those walking down that black road with them. That all may come to know and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
Will talk to ya all later! Have a wonderful day!! God loves YOU!
Love always~

Hi everybody....

Long time no post. I hope everyone is well. As I approach the one year anniversary of my mom's passing, I wanted to thank God for giving me the time we had together. I am ceratinly a better person for it. She now lives on with God and inside me, and my family. She was so incredibly strong here on this earth and now gives me the strength to live sober. I am blessed with over a year of solid sobriety and 5 out of the last 6 years of my life sober. Such a gift, words couldn't do it justice. I continue to pray for all of you and of course my dear friend Renee. I look at pictures of my mom and Tommy every morning when I rise and can't help but feel so grateful to have known them. Their time was so short that only a select few were able to know them. What an honor it is to have been one of the people they touched. Everyone take care and take it one day at a time. One minute at a time if necessary. All unhealthy urges and feelings will pass, be patient and stay the course.
All my love....

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

Kris, Angel, BA, Joni & all,

I have just a few minutes - I wanted to let you all know I'm fine. I have been doing billing since Friday and haven't had a chance to hardly get on the computer - I have read your posts and yes, you all kind of ganged up on me at once and I know it is because you care but everything has been fine between Brett and I. He is going through his trial this week so I've been having lunch w/ him since I work across from the courthouse. This is the trial whether he finds out if he loses his business or not. Anyway, I'm sorry if you were all worried - I feel like this has really gotten out of control. Brett has never been physically abusive to me or to any of his other girlfriends or his ex-wife. Yes, I know he has issues and needs to be on the medication but .. I don't know I feel like if I try to explain anything anymore you will just say I'm being defensive. Kris, what do you mean you are having dreams or visions and you think they are about me??? I love you all but I wish you would slow down a little bit in regards to my relationship with Brett. I have to go back to work - my breaks up. Talk to you soon..

Dear Lord,

I pray today that you will be w/ Brett and his dad as they battle their fight for his shop in court. I pray the judge makes a fair decision. Please watch over Taylor - thank you for helping us find friends thru the soccer team and I pray that you can keep helping Brett and I to understand and be patient w/ one another. Help both of us to not lose our tempers - I pray that you can help me to teach Taylor not to talk back to us so much. She is going thru a real smart alec stage and I pray you can help me to get thru to her on how she should not do that to us. Amen

10/30/2003 01:23

dear joni; i hope you are doing alright,and you are still doing the tough love that needs to be done right now .it is the only way that she will ever learn that momma is not going to be there to bail her out anymore or take anymore of her abuse , because she has chosen this path over her own child and family. i know that it seems so harsh and cruel to turn and walk away, but you are doing it for the welfare of christian and what is right for that baby. and until your daughter can get her self clean and sober , and realize that this is nolofe that she has been living , then the enviroment she has put this precious baby in has been very dangerous and very unsanitory. as i said before, with addicts and junkies, they care for noone but theirselves, and where they can get their next high, fix or drink or all of the above.because to them , that is the most important thing, and that is very sad. but for your sanity and your safety, right now, you are going to just have to do the one thing you never thought you would ever do in your life , walk away . let her get her life together , and i tell you at this point , i believe, i call them rude awakenings , buti think that is what it is going to take to get her to come back to reality and see that this road that she has been on for so lond has been a dead end strret that has led to nowhere, but downhill and devastation.deep down within her heart , she knows you love her ; but at this time ,the life she has chose is more important , but also that love that is buried down deep within , could also be the love that brings her back to reality one day and brings her home to the mother who has loved her unconditionally. love always, kris

Hi All,
What a beautiful poem Bono, I printed that out. I'm in a hurry, have to get to the store then study and do homework all day, another final tonight. I'm still sick but getting better, just have a terrible cough that keeps me up all night. I only drank 2 times since last week, once 2 beers out to dinner with the b/f and 2 beers the other night studying..I no I no..I should be able to over come this but at least Im nothing like I used to be and for the most part O'duls is what I usually have if it;s in the house..I will be back later today, Thanks for all your friendships, e-mails, cards and prayers, I love you all and wish only the best for you all, May God bless each and everyone of you

Hey BA, Kris and all -

I am so swamped at work that I haven't been able to take breaks so sorry if this is short. BA, hope your cough goes away - sorry to hear you have been sick - good job on staying sober - I had one drink last night and it didn't even taste good - we are going out for Halloween tomorrow - I'm a jeanie and Brett's Alladin (the kids are w/ the other parents)_ - Kris, I hate to beat a dead horse but I think I need to clarify a couple of things - first of all, Brett only went off his meds for that 2 or 3 days a couple weeks ago (?lost track of exactly when) and he has been on them again ever since. And I'm not sure where you got the smashing windshields and cars etc. thing because he never did that. Anyway, I hope you all have a good Halloween if I don't get a chance to get back on here - I'm here by myself tomorrow. Love ya God Bless

QUIGLEY; at first i was'nt going to anwser back , because your words were very hurtful and defensive and you wwant to know where i got that from, read back on some of your posts , like go all the way back past november and read over your posts if you've forgotten, because as i have said , we only go by what we are told, and if brett is on his medication, then fine, great , wonderful , so happy for him. but dont go getting as you say beating a dead horse in the ground , over knowing when you have friends here that truly care about your welfare and how you are doing , and honey if you think that is beating a dead horse in the ground , then so be it. you said with your own words these things quigley that we respond to on here. so you can be mad at me , or whatever, i'll still be in the end here , and my friendship will always be there for you and as i always say and as cindy told you i dont say it as words , i say it from the bottom of my heart, you are loved , you matter and you are somebody. all of you on here are so important to me and i thank GOD for the friendships and sisterhood made here, because we have all got really close and when you hear one is in trouble or having promblems , you are going to be there to give your support 1000000000000%, and tell the truth , whether they like it or not, what kind of friend would you be, if you knew one was going through a crisis and you just had the attitude, oh well, she made the bed, let her lie in it, it is her choise, walk away and dont look back; you would'nt be much of a friend would you? because for that friend you are going to be there no matter what, and yes sometimes you may have to say, ok you done your best , the truth is laid out there , it is their choice what they do with it, but that does'nt mean , you are going to stop being their friend or loving them . so you can say and think what you want , that is your choice.as for brett, as i said , we go by what we have seen in black and white, and i tell quigley, it will never be a secure relationship and positive relationship , without truth, honesty and first and foremost GOD AT THE CENTER OF IT !!!!!.IM NOT TRYING TO BE HATEFUL, IM NOT TRYING TO BE A BRETT BASHER, I JUST SPEAK FROM MY HEART, TAKE IT ANY WAY YOU WANT. LOVE ALWAYS, KRIS.

AND SHE IS REALLY SICK AND BOTH HAS BEEN IN AND OUT AROUND ME WITH FEVER AND I AM JUST THANKFUL TO GOD ABOVE SO FAR I HAVE BEEN REALLY BLESSED THAT IT HAS NOT ATTACKED MY IMMUNE SYSTEM.

QUIGLEY; at first i was'nt going to anwser back , because your words were very hurtful and defensive and you wwant to know where i got that from, read back on some of your posts , like go all the way back past november and read over your posts if you've forgotten, because as i have said , we only go by what we are told, and if brett is on his medication, then fine, great , wonderful , so happy for him. but dont go getting as you say beating a dead horse in the ground , over knowing when you have friends here that truly care about your welfare and how you are doing , and honey if you think that is beating a dead horse in the ground , then so be it. you said with your own words these things quigley that we respond to on here. so you can be mad at me , or whatever, i'll still be in the end here , and my friendship will always be there for you and as i always say and as cindy told you i dont say it as words , i say it from the bottom of my heart, you are loved , you matter and you are somebody. all of you on here are so important to me and i thank GOD for the friendships and sisterhood made here, because we have all got really close and when you hear one is in trouble or having promblems , you are going to be there to give your support 1000000000000%, and tell the truth , whether they like it or not, what kind of friend would you be, if you knew one was going through a crisis and you just had the attitude, oh well, she made the bed, let her lie in it, it is her choise, walk away and dont look back; you would'nt be much of a friend would you? because for that friend you are going to be there no matter what, and yes sometimes you may have to say, ok you done your best , the truth is laid out there , it is their choice what they do with it, but that does'nt mean , you are going to stop being their friend or loving them . so you can say and think what you want , that is your choice.as for brett, as i said , we go by what we have seen in black and white, and i tell quigley, it will never be a secure relationship and positive relationship , without truth, honesty and first and foremost GOD AT THE CENTER OF IT !!!!!.IM NOT TRYING TO BE HATEFUL, IM NOT TRYING TO BE A BRETT BASHER, I JUST SPEAK FROM MY HEART, TAKE IT ANY WAY YOU WANT. LOVE ALWAYS, KRIS.

the parable of the sower:
matthew13:1-32

THE SAME DAY WENT JESUS OUT OF THE HOUSE , AND SAT BY THE SEA SIDE.
2.AND GREAT MULTITUDES WERE GATHERED TOGETHER UNTO HIM, SO THAT HE WENT INTO A SHIP, AND SAT; AND THE WHOLE MULTITUDE STOOD ON THE SHORE.
3.AND HE SPAKE MANY THINGS UNTO THEM IN PARABLES, SAYING, BEHOLD,A SOWER WENT FORTH TO SOW;
4.AND WHEN HE SOWED, SOME SEEDS FELL BY THE WAY SIDE,AND THE FOWLS CAME AND DEVOURED THEM UP:
5.SOME FELL UPON STONY PLACES, WHERE THEY HAD NOT MUCH EARTH:AND FORTHWITH THEY SPRUNG UP, BECAUSE THEY HAD NO DEEPNESS OF EARTH:
6.AND WHEN THE SUN WAS UP, THEY WERE SCORCHED; AND BECAUSE THEY HAD NO ROOT, THEY WITHERED AWAY.
7.AND SOME FELL AMONG THORNS; AND THE THORNS SPRUNG UP AND CHOKED THEM:
8.BUT OTHER FELL INTO GOOD GROUND, AND BROUGHT FORTH GOOD FRIUT, SOME A HUNDREDFOLD,SOME SIXTYFOLD,SOME THIRTYFOLD.
9.WHO HATH EARS TO HEAR , LET HIM HEAR.
10.AND THE DISCIPLES CAME,AND SAID UNTO HIM, WHY SPEAKEST THOU UNTO THEM IN PARABLES?
11.HE ANWSERED ANS SAID UNTO THEM, BECAUSE IT IS GIVEN UNTO YOU TO KNOW THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT TO THEM IT IS NOT GIVEN.
12.FOR WHOSOEVER HATH, TO HIM SHALL BE GIVEN, AND HE SHALL HAVE MORE ABUNDANCE:BUT WHOSOEVERHATH NOT,FROM HIM SHALL BE TAKEN AWAY EVEN IF HE HATH.
13.THEREFORE SPEAK I TO THEM IN PARABLES:BECAUSE THEY SEEING SEE NOT; AND HEARING THEY HEAR NOT, NEITHER DO THEY UNDERSTAND.
14.AND IN THEM IS FULFILLED THE PROPHECY OF ISAIAH, WHICH SAITH,BY HEARING YE SHALL HEAR, AND SHALL NOT UNDERSTAND; AND SEEING YE SHALL SEE, AND SHALL NOT PERCEIVE:
15.FOR THIS PEOPLE'S HEART IS WAXED GROSS,AND THEIR EARS ARE DULL OF HEARING, AND THEIR EYES THEY HAVE CLOSED;LEST AT ANYTIME THEY SHOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES,AND HEAR WITH THEIR EARS,AND SHOULD UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART, AND SHOULD BE CONVERTED, AND I SHOULD HEAL THEM.
16.BUT BLESSED ARE YOUR EYES, FOR THEY SEE;AND YOUR EARS; FOR THEY HEAR.
17.FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT MANY PROPHETS AND RIGHTEOUS MEN HAVE DESIRED TO SEE THOSE THINGS WHICH YE SEE, AND HAVE NOT SEEN THEM; AND TO HEAR THOSE THINGS WHICH YE HEAR, AND HAVE NOT HEARD THEM.
18.HEAR YE THEREFORE THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER.
19.WHEN ANYONE HEARETH THE WORD OF THE KINGDOM, ANDUNDERSTANDETH IT NOT, THEN COMETH THE WICKED ONE, AND CATCHETH AWAY THAT WHICH WAS SOWN IN HIS HEARTS, THIS IS HE WHICH RECIEVED SEED BY THE WAY SIDE.
20.BUT HE THAT RECEIVED THE SEED INTO STONY PLACES, THE SAME IS HE THAT HEARETH THE WORD, AND ANON WITH JOY RECEIVETH IT;
21.YET HATH HE NOT ROOT IN HIMSELF, BUT DURETH FOR A WHILE:FOR WHEN TRIBULATION OR PERSECUTION ARISETH BECAUSE OF THE WORD, BY AND BY HE IS OFFENDED.
22.HE ALSO THAT RECEIVED SEED AMONG THE THORNS IS HE THAT HEARETH THE WORD;AND THE CARE OF THIS WORLD , AND THE DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES, CHOKE THE WORD, AND HE BECOMETH UNFRUITFUL.<2TIMONTHY4:10,JERIMIAH4:3,MARK4:19>.
23.BUT HE THAT RECEIVED SEED INTO THE GOOD GROUND IS HE THAT HEARETH THE WORD,AND UNDERSTANDETH IT;WHICH ALSO BEARETH FRUIT, AND BRINGETH FORTH ,SOME A HUNDRED-FOLD, SOME SIXTY, SOME THIRTY.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER ILLUSTRATES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FOLLOW THROUGH. ONLY ONE FOURTH OF THE SOIL WAS READY FOR THE SEED , SO ONLY ONE FOURTH OF THE SEED BROUGHT FORTH FRIUT.JESUS EXPLAINS THE PARABLE IN VERSES 18-23AND WE LEARN THAT:

1.THE SOWER IS THE WITNESS.
2. THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD.
3.THE SOIL IS THE HEART.

Hi All!
I was sitting here reading my Bible,and I was reading Matthew 13!! Then Decided I would sign in, and see what was going on! The Lord does work in mysterious ways, for there I saw Matthew 13!! Kris~ you stopped at 13:23. Here, the Bible goes on to say:
24- Another parable He put forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man which soweth good seed in his field
25- But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way
26- But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27-So the servents of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst tho not sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares?
28- He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.The servents said unto him, Wilt tho then we go and gather them up?
29- But he said: Nay:lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30- Let both grow together until the harvest: an in the time of harvest I will tell the reapers, gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: bu gather the wheat into my barn.
31- Another parable he put forth unto them saying,The Kingdom of Heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed into his field.
32- Which indeed is the least of all seeds; but when it is grown, it is the greates among herbs,and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof
33- And another parable he spake unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was levened.
34- All these things Jesus spake unto the mulititude in parables; and without a parable He spake not unto them
35- That it might be fullfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
36- Then Jesus sent the mulititude away, and went into the house; and His deciples came unto Him saying; Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37- He answer and said unto them; He that sowerth the good seed is the Son of man;
38- The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one.
39- The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels
40-As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world
41-The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom, all things that offend, and them which do iniquity.
42- And shall cast them into a furnance of fire; there shall be wailing and nashing of theeth
43- Then shall the righteous shine forth as th sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
I thought it important to take this a little farther! It is for someone ou there. Hope you hear the message! I am just the messenger.

Hello all~
I haven't posted for a few days, because I have a slipped disk, and am in a lot of pain. Can't do ANYTHING!! Not even sleep for more than 2/3 hours at a time because of the pain, and I have a very high pain tolerence! Today is my third day off of work ( which I can't afford!), but it is ALl I can do to make myself get in the car, and go to the chiropractor every day. Don't even know how I did it!!! I've been spending alot of time with my Saviour! I'm sure there is a reason for it.
Kris, you said it in your post a day or two ago to Joni that "you call them rude awakenings". Need I say more? You have planted seed. I have planted seed. We have done what we felt led to do. It is in GODS HANDS! He can do soooo much more than we! Rest in the assurance that God is in control.I think the fact that both of us got the same message at the same time ( Matthew 13) is confirmation on this.
Set yourselves up for SUCCESS! Have the things in your home that will keep you on tract, and hang out with those that do the same. If you dont, you will be setting yourselves up for failure. Keep taking steps in the right direction, and God will help you get there in the end, for He doesn't want that even one should parish. Take time EVERY DAY to tell Him you love Him.
Joni, I am praying for the trial that you are going through right now. I will be glad to see when you get back here. We are all here to love, understand, and support, and to encourage you in your time of need.
Bettyann, sure hope you are over the cough now! I am really proud of you in your school, and your drinking. Keep up the good work, and keep leaning on God for all you do. You seem to be doing that a little more these days. :)
Quigley, I hope and pray that you find what it is you are looking for, and I pray that it is Christ centered. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Keep trying and keep putting one foot foreward, and learning Gods word, and you will eventually get there. Just remember all we have is TODAY. What WOULD Jesus do?
Bono~ Good to see you back again, and I agree with the rest. Very loving and peaceful poem. Thank You. You are in my prayers.
As for the rest of you, we are all wondering where you are, whats going on, and if you are holding on to Jesus as you walk through your storms. I pray you are.
God Bless you all, and you are all in my thoughts and my prayers.
Love to all
Love in Christ Jesus,
Cindy/Angel
