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 everyone and Happy & Blessed NEW YEAR.
I know I have not been posting lately, I have been sick and work has been really swamped but I have to take a moment to respond to soulspeak.
I can only speak from my own recent experience but I definitely feel your anguish over this dilema with your children and the safety of your grandchildren. I too, face a drug addict daughter and her boyfriend and the safety of my one year old grandson. That is why I went to court and fought for temporary custody in NOV. My husband (my daughter's stepdad) and I could not live with ouselves if something happend to our grandbaby. This has had a good effect on the baby's dad--he went into a 10 day detox (third time) then a 28 day program and now he is in a half way house. My daughter on the other hand has not been so successful. She blames all of this on me, of course, and now she is threatening not to let me see my grandson once she gets him back!!!! I know this is all in the LORD'S hands and that good will eventually come of the separation between my daughter and I.
It's my prayer request that my daughter will get the counselling and drug rehab that she deperately needs but won't seek because she cant afford to lose her job now that she has to pay rent etc in an apartment. We all felt this was not the right thing for her to do to struggle with 2 jobs working 70 hours a week but she refused to go away to any rehab since her ins. only covered 20 outpatient visits. Anyway, things are really strained between us now and I would ask that you lift me in prayers, as well, because my husband feels I am not as strong as I was when we first took the baby and that I keep overcompensating for my daughter's behavior...
Kris it was good to read your posts again. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You have been a good friend.
Bettyann: His promises are NEW every morning and His Grace is sufficient in our times of weakness--don't lose hope--you can do ALL things through HIM, yes?
Angel: I will keep Joe in my prayers since this will be a most difficult time to face without not wanting to deaden the pain with something.
Quigley: This is a new year and it very well could be a new beginning for Brett and your relationship as long as you acknowledge HIM in ALL your ways and scripture says HE will give you the desires of your heart just be open to what that might 'really' mean for you.
Closi01: I will keep you in my prayers. We are all here on this site sharing such pain but also sharing the joy of the Lord and HIS hope for each one of us and those sufferung in our family.
Sharon: It's good to read your words of encouragement. The Lord's love and wisdom shine through you for sure.
With HIS Love,
Joni

Good Morning all~
Soulspeak ~ I cry as I read your post.Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and spirit. I will only tell you what I feel, and what I feel is directed of God concerning the court situation.Above all, if you have to take the stand, speak the truth. It can be very hard at times, because we are worried about the outcome of things, but we have to stand for something, and how are we to answer to our Lord if we cannot speak the truth? Who will protect those babies? Who will stand up for them? Their Mother? Their Father? Drug users have a very hard time with the truth, yet they may want to do the right thing, but the complusion for the drugs is greater than the complusion for LIFE. What about the other children? Children are GIFTS from our Father in Heaven. How are those gifts to be treated? Listen to what God tells you.I will be back ~ I have an incoming call from the hospital
Love in Christ~

Soulspeak, as I read your post my heart goes out to you because you have a very hard decision to make. I thought about what I think the right thing to do would be and the safety of the children should come first in my opinion. Do you think the children are in serious danger while they are in her care? It sounds like they might be to me. Have they asked you to testify or are you volunteering? If they subpoened you, then you can tell Sherry that you had no choice and that you can't purger yourself on the stand. You had to tell the truth. And I believe you can ask the DA to subpoena you. I'm not sure what state you are in but I am a paralegal in Oregon. I realize you don't want to alienate yourself from your grandkids but I think you should weigh the consequences of what could happen to them if you don't say anything. I know this is a hard decision and I pray God will help you to make the right decision and to do what is best for your family - Angel & Kris - thank you for all of your kind words - I am doing better on the drinking and things - Brett finally told me last night that the doctor has upped his medication and that they have also put him on something for being a manic-depressant - so now he is taking those pills plus anti-depressants. He has been on them for a little over a week and I can see a big difference in his disposition - he is only taking 1/2 of what they prescribed to him which worries me a little but at least it is a start. BA - hope your New Year's Eve went well and you are staying sober - I did drink but not a lot and we actually had a lot of fun but I'm back to being good and sober - well, better go and get some work done - bye for now -

Dear Lord,

I come to you in prayer asking that you be with Soulspeak and to help her to make the right decision in whether or not she should testify against Sherry - help her Lord and guide her in the right direction - watch over her grandchildren and keep them safe and I pray that their parents can overcome their addiction problems once and for all - Lord, help BA and I to stay sober and to enjoy life to the fullest without the use of alcohol or drugs - I pray that you can watch over Brett and help him to stay on his medication - thank you for guiding him in the right direction on what medication he needed to take - I pray that you help us through this tough financial time and help business at the shop to pick up so that we can pay our monthly bills - Watch over all of us here on this site Lord. I pray that you hear each and every prayer and cry for help and to guide us all to the places we need to be - Amen.

Joni - I'm sorry - I did not mean to overlook you - I wanted to say it's good to hear from you again. I'm sorry things aren't going upward for your daughter - I will keep you in my prayers and ask God to help your daughter to see that what you do is out of love for her and your grandson. God Bless and stay strong

God Bless you all for the support you are giving me.I live in the great Northern Plains of Nebraska..Our judicial system is so overwhelmed with the epedemic of Meth labs, distribution, and usage in this area that there are not enough hours in the day . I cannot even get a call back from the prosecuting attorney. Daycare turned them in to social services several months ago it took two weeks for social services to respond and then they notified them when they were comming and of course the report came back unfounded..........I can feel the prayers going up for us and today Jerry came to me and we spent several hours talking.He is not high today and I shared chapter 3 out of a book that I gave to all 4 of my adult children for Christmas called "A Purpose Driven Life" He had not started reading his book yet. We were able to sit and talk calmly,laugh,cry, and hug each other and tell each other we loved each other.. When we hugged and I had my arms around him tight I asked Sweet Jesus to just come into his life and drive satan and the addiction from his mind and body and fill him with the Holy Spirit. I forgave him for the taking of the Christmas gifts, he feels very remorseful about it and I don't want the guilt to drive him to use again. Jerry practices Shaminism along with Christianity and does believe that Jesus Christ is his savior but he also revers the ancient wisdom of our forefathers. He is a very soft gentle,loving compassionate person with so much to give and offer until satan grabbs hold of him with the meth.I told him that Jesus loves him and has a greater purpose for his life if he had the willingness to do the hard work of going to meetings and letting the Lord lift him and carry him when he is tempted. I am so thankful for all of you and I have written your names on my list that I pray for everynight and day. I live alone so I talk to God a lot thruout the day and night. The rest of the family is so fed up with Jerry and Sherry they pray for them but will not allow them to dump on them and upset their families and children...J&S 2 older boys are both 11. from previous marriages.They do not have custody of the boys but do have visitation and Jerry's son is with the maternal grandparents. I see him often and he is a wonderful child with very supportive family . Sherry's older boy is with her mother and needs lots of prayers. I don't want to just go on and on but want to answer questions and thank you for your prayers and let you know I am praying for you too...Gods peace to you....soulspeak

hello everyone this has been a serioulsy stressful time and i thank you for all who are out there praying for my self and my family. quigley i personally thank you for your words of wisdom. Just like sharon i believe God has led all of us here not only to pray for our loved ones but to encourage and uplift one another. Thankyou Lord. Welcome to the prayer circle soul speak. remember you can always come here for comfort. and encouragement. i am in the middle of a very serious and important decision. I keep seeing my husband just going around in circles and not stopping. he hasnt used or stolen anything that i know of since the day after christmas but he feels that it is ok to keep drinking and smoking weed. and all we do is argue about this which isnt good for either of us or our children. I am to the point now that i think i just might have to leave him for good this time. to ease my stress and for the well being of out children. So I ask you all to pray for me as i am going through this tough time.
Dear Magnificent Father, I praise you today for all you have given me and have shown me through out my life. I thank you for this wonderful source of inspiration and the people you have here. I ask you today Lord to wrap your arms of comfort around all of them and lead them to where you want them to be. I come befor you today for myself Father God. Give me the wisdom to do as you would want me to do and if that is to stay with this man then I ask you graciously Lord to give me the patience to put up with him until he finally opens his eyes to you will. Ease my stress God, as I am weak. Give me the strength to go on. I will magnify you Lord in all I do. Help me to see your will in my own life. I ask you to create in me a clean heart. amen

Such a nice group here really loving people that have a heart. What a blessing sent from above! God is good. We have to keep our eyes on the Lord. Jesus is first. All of this is a very sad for all those concerned. Because these are people that you have really loved. You know right at this time you might not feel like you still love them but you do. And GOD DOES TOO! He loves all of us. Chrysti your husband is going in circles, but you should be 'RESTING IN THE LORD" THAT CAN BE DONE. Don't know weither you have ever done that or not. If you leave your husband Chrysti just please make sure that's what the Lord is telling you to do. I KNOW HOW ANGRY these people can make a person. Chrysti my e-mail is shinninggold5292@yahoo.com or anyone else that wants it e-mail me if you like or if any one wants to get a message to Kris. i'd be glad to get it to her. She lives 2 doors down from me so it would be of no in convience. YOU ALL ARE SO GOOD TO LET OTHERS KNOW GOD LOVES YOU ON THESE POSSSTS WE ALL NEED TO HEAR THAT WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN OUR LIFE TO KNOW, JUST THINK ABOUT THAT FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS! Well it returned me to Peace quickly. THANK-YOU Jesus. LORD JESUS PLEASE LIFT THE STRESS FROM THOSSE ON HERE SUFFERING FROM IT. And Lord make these people STOP TAKING WHATEVER THEY ARE TAKING, THEY ARE TRULY IN TROUBLE LORD CHASE THEM BY THE POWER OF YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. please LORD open some mighty DOORS HERE AND CLOSE THE DOORS YOU WANT CLOSED IN JESUS NAME. hopefully a word of encouragement i have seen bad spirts leave a room when the name of JESUS IS CALLED ON. I think there are others on here that still are having problems that don't realize the power in the name of JESUS. Ican guarantee you one thing GOD CAN SHOW YOU. I know I"m not alone, i"m blessed. And you are to GOD LOVES YOU> AMEN

Lord God I come to you this morning with Thanksgiving..Thanking you for sending your son Jesus to love and teach and die for our earthly sins so that we may be saved from our sins and spend eternity with you....You are such an awesome God and I praise your Holy Name.........Thank you for giving me this day and my prayer to you this day written by St. Francisis of Assisi IS:
LORD..make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred let me sow love;.....Where there is injury, pardon............Where there is doubt, faith;.........Where there is despair,hope;...........Where there is daekness,light;.and Where there is sadness,joy;..Grant that I may not so much seek To be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand;.To be loved as to love;............For it is in giving that we receive:..It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;.....And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Good Morning my friends, this is my prayer for each of you today I have been so blessed to be welcomed in your circle. Today we all can be lifted up by the words of St. Francis and with Gods help face the challanges we face today...Jesus loves you and I do too...........soulspeak

I hope I am not abusing this prayer circle but I want to answer Kris. My childrens grandmother from Ohio on their fathers side was half cherokee and my great Uncle was an Irish Anglican Priest on the Sioux and Lakota reservations just North of us here in Nebr.In the Dakotas. So all of my life we have lived with the native americans who are Christians. However, because of the simple life they live, they have not lost a lot of the gifts we were all born with.Their medicine men can cure cancer with herbs and their faith is so great they can heal with the laying on of hands. They rarely die of heart disease because of their life style and the Shamans, being Christians, receive visions and messages from spirits that those of us who have "educated" ourselves to make money to live "the american dream" have lost the ability to receive.It is not in conflict with what Jesus preached . We all have spirit guides if we allow them into our lives.Both of my parents have crossed over. I held both of them in my arms as they were crossing and it was an unbelivable experience....At times I walk into a room and can smell my mothers perfume or my Dad's cigar and I know their spirits are with me and I acknowledge them..The long answer Kris is we are multicultural in our family. My children do have native american blood in their veins I do not, just in my heart. In the 80's we sponsored and adopted a Vietnamese family until they were able to make it on their own in America and currently we are sponsoring and have adopted a Sudanise family who came here as refugees. We learn so much from them sometimes I think they teach us more than we teach them. They certainly teach us to be grateful for the abundance we have in this country.
Dear Lord tonight I ask that we accept different cultures and different beliefs and know that we are all called to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all who cross our path......Lord I am just so blessed and thankful that you have opened this prayer circle to me to share your love, and hope and trust with others who are having the same afflictions in their lives...I ask you Jesus to wrap your loving arms around each and every person in this circle tonight and fill them with your Holy Spirit and give them peace thruout the night I ask this in Jesus name.....Amen and Amen.....
I also want to let you all know that my son Jerry is clean and sober today and he brought the children to my home for a good part of the day and I was able to love on them and hold them and pray for them......Jerry and the kids are staying with me tonight and going to church with me in the morning..........Oh, the power of your prayers...don't stop and say an extra blessing on Sherry she is in such darkness.Remember, Jesus loves you and so do I...God Bless soulspeak

Good Afternoon everyone!
Sometimes just reading your posts is enough. Thank you all for being part of this circle, and sharing your love, kindness, thoughts, concern, your beliefs, your strengths, your wisdom, your love of our Lord. It was very renewing to read these posts today.
Kris ~ Joes Mom is still the same - doesn't want to die. Her mind is fine - it is her body that is worn out.She should be brought to a nursing home here tomorrow in the Hospice Care Plan. She doesn't want to. I asked the hospital Chaplin the other day, if he would lead her to Christ when he had time with her. Joes family is so large, that there are rare moments alone with her. There is someone there 24/7 now. Has been all week. Now for a little praise to our Father!! :) You would not believe the work that God is doing in Joe!! He has become the strong one - he is the one everyone is calling on - He is the one that is telling everyone that there are things they have to get done, and they all have to meet, and agree on things, and if one can't be there, then they need to make decisions anyway! It is amazing to watch this transformation taking place! He is thinking about everything he says before he says it, and considering that people will say things at this time because of their emotions. There have been a couple of incidents with his younger brother that Joe has just walked away from. ( I'm sure it would have been much EASIER to just knock him out with what he's said!!) Joes attitude has softened so much. Please keep him in your prayers, he needs all the strength he can get.I could go on, but I will stop for now. Praise God! ALL things are possible. Also I think your net was already gone when Joni went to court - she got guardianship of Christian.
Soulspeak~
I am so thankful for God sending you to this site. Your words, prayers, and thoughts are indeed a blessing. I too, do not have any indian blood in me, but I was raised a little child in the desert of Arizona, and I had Apache friends growing up, and have such a special place in my heart for the indian, Native American people. I still have a couple of friends on the reservation out there up by eloy. I get to see them every year or so. They need so much our prayers. Drug and alcohol abuse are so rampid there.
Bettyann, Quigley, Chrysti, and any one else reading ~ God is with you until the end. He lives in our hearts. His Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts. But when we keep an unclean heart it quenches the Holy Spirit from doing a work in us. It is so important to have a daily renewal with our Father, and ask for forgivness of every day things that we may think, say, or do, without giving it much thought. It is our responsibility once we have heard the word of GOD!! OUR GOD IS AN AWSOME GOD - HE REIGNS FROM HEAVEN ABOVE - WITH POWER, WISDOM, AND LOVE, OUR GOD IS AN AWSOME GOD!!
God bless you all -
Love in Christ Jesus -

Hello all,

Happy Monday. Hope everyone had a good weekend. Kris and Joni thanks for the encouragement - I know how Kris feels about Brett so I appreciate the fact that you are not negative towards our relationship and Joni you have always been supportive of how I feel and I'm thankful for that and I will keep your daughter in my prayers in hopes that she will seek the drug counseling she needs -

I am just so thankful that Brett has finally found medication that will help him. They seem almost miraculous. He is even saying so. It's hard to believe that someone can have a chemical imbalance like that. He feels a little embarassed about "having to take a pill to be nice" that's how he puts it but I'm just thankful to God and everyone else that has been praying for us that he has finally found a medication that can help him.

It's a busy Mon so must go - Love & God Bless

Quigley, I no how Brett feels, Itoo am on Prozac to control my moods, tempoer, severe PMS..It really helps. Im on my first day of Soberity!!!!! Praise Jesus..I got drunk Saturday night and fought with the boyfriend and stayed in a hotel...realizing the next day the "booze" isn't worth ruining my life again nor my relationship...soooooo I'm back to the O'duls and praying daily..I for awhile slipped away from praying, reading and got lost off the right track, needless to say Im very anxious today, feel 100% better, am ready to get back to school and do well in my personal life also, I will be back soon...I pray for you all daily, May GOd bless each and all and hlep us all overcome our addictions of any kind...

BA - hang in there girl - I haven't been doing as well as I would like iether. New Years kind of started Brett and I on a roll of going to friends houses and drinking - I haven't gotten out of control at all and we are not fighting but I'm tired this morning and I felt kind of grumpy. So I know I need to get back on track. I would have never thought that one little pill could make such a difference in someone's personality. I'm just so thankful. I thank God and all of you on this site for praying for us. I'm a little scared tho because it is going so good - I feel like it is too good to be true. His dad has wanted him to get on them for a long time - his uncle committed suicide because he's a manic dep and his other uncle has been in psych wards off and on. He told me the reason why he finally went to the dr. and asked for them was because of him being violent towards me and the horrible fighting and arguing we were doing. Anyway, hope everyone else is having a good Tuesday - I have my 90 day review today and have to ask for a raise so please pray for me - finances have been tight lately - God Bless Q

Dear Lord,

I pray for the willpower it takes to stay away from alcohol and drugs for BA, myself, my brother, dad, Closs'husband, Joni's daughter, Bonnie's husband, Robert and his dad and anyone else that I have not mentioned that are praying for loved ones who are addicts or themselves on this site. I pray Lord that you can help my father overcome his addiction. I pray that you give my mom the strength to deal with the situation and God Bless her soul and reward her for being the angel she is. Please help Brett and I to pull together as a family unit and give Taylor a happy childhood - I pray that my daughter can lead a happy life w/ friends and boyfriends and all the things that kids w/out disablities can do - Please give me the strength to be there for Brett and Taylor when they need me. I pray I can become less selfish and look out for their needs first. Please help my review go smooth today and I pray I get the raise I deserve.

In closing, I would like to say thank you God for all the friends I've made here on this site, Kris, BA, Angel, Joni, Closs, Bonnie, Sharon and anyone else I've missed - I thank you all for your prayers - I truly feel it is because of all of you and God that Brett has finally admitted to a problem and went to get help. I pray that each and everyone of you are blessed in some special way today and that your prayers are answered for your owwn personal issues. Amen.

To all KRIS and I just finished a little while ago praying for everyone on here. All of you on here are such fantastic people for turing to God and praying, as I remember so clearly when i wasn't walking the right walk and God was right there. Oh i realize it now,how he protected me and guided me. But he kept guiding and not giving up on me i believe i gave up on myself perhaps that was the step i needed to take to see i could never do it with out him. SO AT THIS POINT I WANT TO ASK JESUS IN HIS PRECIOUS NAME TO FORGIVE US OF ALL OUR SINS AND SHORTCOMINGS, THANK-YOU LORD FOR YOUR GRACE. AMEN All of you on here make me truly have a warm spot in my heart for you for Turing to God. Please never ever stop loving HIM> I did discover that repenting often helped me have a closer walk with him and helped me realize things that i needed to change. SHARON

We have 6-12 inches of snow today so not sure if there will be school tonight but still have lots of homework to do today. I love you all so very much and really appreciate all of your prayers. I feel God has lead us all here and has very special things ahead for us. I pray all of us with addictions continue to trust God and turn it over to him to heal us and give us the strenght to say no...I pray that he feels our voids and we don't need drugs, alcohol or any other drug to cope with stress in our live's. I pray this new year makes us all see and be thankful for what we Do have and not concontrate on what we Dont have..Life seems to get better when you find things each day to be thnakful for or help 1 person in need a day and it comes back to you..Praise you all, Hope Kris your feeling better, Quigley I pray things continue to go good for you and Brett, Yes that 1 little pill can make all the difference.

Morning all,

Thank you for your prayers Kris, Sharon and BA - as I have said before, I truly believe this site and the prayers that were said for Brett and I are the reason he sought help - things are still going good - although now he thinks that maybe I should get on antidepressants for my addiction. I don't know much about it but I'm not real crazy about the idea. Anyway, I am toying with the idea of putting Brett's transmission shop under a corporation in my name and maybe going in to business together. I own the corporation and he is the mechanic. I need the extra income and he needs someone with good credit and so that his ex wife doesn't take it from him. It's a long story but I think I am doing the right thing by helping him. I pray that I make the right decision in whether or not to help Brett in this business deal. Angel - I'm sorry to hear about Joe's mom - You sound very distraught - I pray that God gives you the strength to get thru this day w/ such little sleep and that you get a good nights rest tonight - I will be thinking of you.

Well, I just wanted to say hey - God Bless you all love Q

Dear Lord,

I pray that you can help Brett and I to stay a happy couple I thank you for his courage to ask for medication. I pray that I can make the right decision on the tranny shop and will do the right thing whether that be be a part of the corporation or not. Please guide me Lord. I pray for inner peace and happiness for all of my friends here on this site Joni, Cindy, BA, Kris, Angel Cross and my mom - Amen

Good Morning all~
Espically to you Soulspeak - by the Grace of God you are here to welcome another day with our Lord. I am very glad that you are O.K. Maybe this will be a wake up for at least Jerry. Life is so precious.
Q ~
Thanks for your kind words.Good insight there on your part with the few words I posted. You are right-I am pretty distraught right now.I went to the nursing home with Joe, but I am not going back. I just can't do it.Went through all this with my Mom, and it is just too hard.Because of all this going on with his Mom, now Joe doesn't want to lose what he's got(our relationship?).I feel more like - too little-too late. So with everything thats going on, I am pretty much a mess.
I'm not sure if I have enough forgivness left in me, to try again with Joe. He has taught me very well, not to belive what he tells me. I told him that last night.Enough about me.
You sound like you are more at peace now Quigley, than I have heard you in a long time:) I am glad for that, & for Bret getting on Meds.I've known a lady for 12 years now, that is bipolar. She also has to have meds to live a "normal" life. You keep staying in control of your drinking! I pray you can live without it at all.:)
Must close, and go back to work today.
God Bless you all, and keep you in His graces :)
Love,
Angel

Soulspeak - What a scary thing to happen - I guess we never know when it will happen to any of us and yes, I am one of those who think "it will never happen to me" I am so glad that you are well enough to write - I hope that you recover quickly. I will be thinking of you and keep you in my daily prayers - God Bless Love Quigley

Angel - I'm sorry to have been right - you are always the strong one on here so hearing that you are so upset makes me realize once again that God tests all of us and it is a lot easier to be strong and optimistic when life is going smoothly. So, since you have always been there to give me advice (which I don't always want to hear but I do listen lol) I will give you my advice on Joe. I think it is fear that is making you think that you have no forgiveness for Joe. I think it is in you but you are afraid that he will disapoint you again. Fear can keep us from living our lives the way God wants us to - I know Joe has hurt you and you need to make sure he realizes what he has done but maybe God is opening a door through what has happened w/ Joe's mom. I don't know, maybe I am way off but it is just an opinion. I pray that God can help you open your heart and forgive your husband - I'm not saying I don't understand - because I do but from what I have seen on here - you are a strong woman who is full of love and forgiveness and I pray that the Lord can help you become at peace with your life and what is going on and to open up your heart to what God really wants you to do.
As far as my life, you are right, I am so relieved that there was an explanation for what was going on with Brett. He is the Brett that I first met and cared for and I do love him. Does your friend ever have relapses even tho she is on the meds? I'm a little afraid this is too good to be true - but I hope not. Well, better close - God Bless - Love Q

Dear Lord,

I pray that you watch over my friends Soulspeak and Angel - help Soulspeak to recover quickly from her heart attack and keep her safe and I pray that you can touch Angel's heart and point her down the path you would choose for her to take. I pray Brett and I can keep communicating and understanding one another the way we have been - help us both to manage our finances so that we can keep the stress that money issues can bring out of our relationship. I pray that his shop can pick up and he can start making money so that we can live and pay our bills. I pray you point me in the right direction as far as a job and help me make the right decision on whether to find a new job or not. Amen
