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.

Kris,

I'm sorry to hear things aren't going very well for you and your family - I hope it is nothing too serious. I will be praying for you and your family to stay strong and for God to help you through whatever is going on.

I was not talking about you or our friendship when I said that in my earlier post - I have friends here in Medford who seem to be that way but I didn't mean you.

Well, things are still going smoothly for Brett and I - I pray that they stay that way. Love you all Q

Hey all Kris I hope all is well with you if you need me I'm here. Quigley Thanx for peaying for me it warmed my heart when I read it. If you and Bret are meant to be then yo will. I firmley believe that God puts people in our lives for reasons. I was once in love well I'm still in love but he is no longer part of my life because of my active addiction. I went to put my daughter to bed and found his picture underneath her covers. It broke my heart. i wish things could be different especially for her sake. It doesn't seem fair for her to have to pay for my mistakes. but we'll see maybe with enough prayer my love will to come back to me. and i can hold my family unit back togther as you do now. God bless everyone and as I am in you rprayers you ill be in mine. lov and light Jessica

Jessica,

Your last post brought tears to my eyes. What you wrote really hit home with me. I have been in your shoes as far as my daughter loved my ex-boyfriend - we lived with him on the Oregon coast for 5 years and one day he decided he didn't want to be together anymore and the next day I moved back to Medford. Taylor was crushed. He never called her or came to see her - he just cut all ties. One night she put his picture at the dinner table to pretend that he was there having dinner with us and it broke my heart because all the while, I was only thinking of my own broken heart. I'm sure that my drinking played a big part in it all (he drank a lot too) but I did move on and Taylor still talks about him and living at the coast. But now we have Brett and she loves him. And he is actually better with her than my ex was - so in the end, I think things worked out for the best. I too believe that God puts people in our lives for a reason and that things will eventually work themselves out for two people if they are really right for one another. I will be praying for you because I do believe with enough prayer anything is possible - your friend, Q

hey jessica, quigley, and ba; jessica and quigley thank you for wwhat you said, and jessica my email is littlecreekwillow@hotmail.com, you can write me there. it was sad hearing the story about the children. they are the ones who seem to suffer the most when things dont work out. it is heartbreaking that it is so hard on them too. i know that in time GOD works everything out. and HE will NEVER leave or forsake you, and in your most trying times, HIS LOVE AND STRENGTH, AND COMFORT, AND PEACE IS ALWAYS THERE. it has been a shock with this with my soninlaw, but we are all standing behind him , we know that GOD IS IN FULL CONTROL, AND it will all work out. my son inlaw worked for the sherrif's dept over and he was the baliff and the sherriff's deputy, and he was also in charge for all the years he worked there from 1996 to 2004, and he was in charge of all the money , he made amistake, and they called me tuesday before it came out in the paper,a nd my family all knew this, but hey said the reason why they had not said anything already was because of my health, and they were trying to protect me, and so one day before this came out in the paper they told me about it, my soninlaw called me himsaelf, there has been no charges ,but there is an investigation. he is a wonderful soninlaw, and i love and cherish him so much, he just made a mistake, and he is willing to take whatever consequences he has to face. so pleasew continue to keep him and our family, in yall's prayers. i still cant talk about it toomuch, because it makes me wanta cry so m, but my faith IN GOD IS SO SO SO STRONG, AND I KNOW THAT HE IS HOLDING him up with this, and HE WILL NOT ABANDON him. i love you all, and yall have a wonderful sunday, kris. thank yall.

Kris,

I'm sorry to hear about your son-in-law. I have known people who have fell into the same hole, and I know they are good people, they just took the wrong path. Neither of them ended up going to jail over it miraculously (sp?) but with your son-in-law being who he is, it is probably going to be harder. I will be praying for you and him both. Hang in there girl. Love Q

Hello all:
Quigley- I am glad to read that things are still going well with Brett. We all worry that things will revert back because some of us have lived through it over and over but God is the God of NEW beginnings and His grace is new every day. Just don't excuse things that you know are harmful to you and your daughter and keep looking to Him for direction EVERY step of the way.
Kris-I really feel for you and your family at this critical time. We will pray for the Lor's mercy in this difficult situation. We all know how the enemy roams around seeking whom he may devour and the believer's family is always a target!!!
Keep trusting that this too, had to pass through the Father's hand before coming to you so He promises to keep you peaceful in spite of the difficulty.
We don't always know why we go through such tough times but we are here for each other to lighten the burden, yes?
BettyAnn-it was good to read your posts. You are very busy indeed but it will all be worth it when school is over and you know all your hard work paid off.
Jessica: It brought tears to my eyes too, to read your post but sometimes just 'knowing' He is closer to the hurting, helps.
Things between my daughter Rachael and I keep going from bad to worse. She is angry at the world but most of all me--for the things that have not gone well in her life. Please pray that somehow she can release her pain to His care so healing can begin. She told me that DYFS said she only has to be evaluated in some clinic in New Brunswick and if they say she doen't need Rehab that that will be ok but that is not what her court order says. She still thinks she is getting Christian back this Spring--we will have to see what will happen.
Thanks for all your prayers.
With His Love,
Joni

3/10/2004 14:32

Hi Joni,

It is good to hear from you. I'm sorry things aren't getting better for Rachael - she sounds like she is in denial. I can imagine how frustrated you must be. You are a strong woman and a good mother - someday she will realize that - I am praying for you both.
It is funny that you said that about Brett because he has been very moody lately. It is starting to take its toll on my nerves. I just hope I am taking the right road. Please pray for Taylor and I that I make the right decisions for us. I think maybe I'm just tired today and whenever I try to talk to Brett he says that I am the one who is moody and mean. AFter a while, start to doubt myself - like I said - I'm tired today better go love you all Q


bapetnut1
3/10/2004 14:34

Hi All,
I will be praying for you Joni, Kris, Quigley and all. Sorry things arent going to well for you Joni, someday she will look back as I did and forgive my mom. We werent close growing up but once I quit blaming her for all my problems and took a look at myself we get along great now. Things will work out TRUST ME...shes young and wants the focus off her, so it's easier to blame you and not deal with whats going on with her. Kris I pray you start feeling much better as we approach spring. Quigley, I hope things work out with you and Brett and he continues to grow and change for the better. I have been very very very busy as this is my last 2 months of school and we are studying the Muscular and Skelatal System..I have to No all the bones in the body their functions and all the nerves etc...hahahahhaahhahahahh but I love it~~~~~~~~ And yes....sorry to say still drinking occasionally...I love you all and miss you all and will be praying for you all..I love that spring is around the corner and the puppy is doing much better and Im getting a little more sleep now that shw holds it 5 hrs..Off to do homework,
God bless to you all,
Love Bettann

Hello to everyone, I know it has been a long time since I have posted, but I have been reading your post and praying for you all. Q, I hope things are going well for you and Taylor. I have found out that if you are meant to be with a certain person, God will make it happen. I have know Brian for over 20 years and God just keeps putting us together. Something in my heart has told me never to give up on him, even when everyone else had. I have to tell you all something special that has happened in Brian's life. I have been attending a new church with Paige and had been asking Brian to go. He said he wasn't ready yet, so I didn't push him. One day, he said maybe it was time to get some help for his problem and ask me to see if the pastor would come to our house to see him. Even after meeting with the pastor, Brian still had a weak moment and turned to drugs. He had been out all night driving around (like he did after all of his "trips")and told me he was lost and crying, when he asked God to either let him die or help him get his life back on track to save himself from the drugs. He said he litterally felt a slap on the back of the head and it was then he knew what he needed to do. On January 28th @ 5:30 in the morning, he asked God into his heart. He called me and ask me to please forgive him and he was ready to get into rehab and turn his life over to God. On Super bowl Sunday, at a gathering at church, he made his decision public and we were both baptized the week afterwards. I would have posted this much sooner, but I have been a bit of a Doubting Thomas and am still wondering if this is the real deal. Please pray for me that I can learn to trust him again and that this is the real deal for him. We have been attending church every week and going to buible study, too. I am so ashamed of myself for feeling this way. Please pray that Brian will remain strong and stay on the path. He has not attended any meetings or gone into any programs, but he has said that the desire for the drug is gone. He has cut all ties with his suppliers and has even turned over all of the finances to me. He never has any cash to "do" anything, so I know it has stopped. Even after his company truck was stolen, he did not have the desire to turn back to the drugs. As a matter of fact, he prayed for the men that stole the truck. We had just came from church, so all of our bibles were in there, and he ask God that He lead the thieves to read the word and help them out. The pastor of our church is named Pastor Miracle, and God has truley sent us miracle. I pray that everyone else who is fighting with the drug demonds, in what ever form, that they will let God into thier life. It has been a blessing for my family and I know it can be for yours. Joni, I pray that your daughter can open her eyes and see things for the better. BA, I pray for you that you can stay away from the beer and that you continue to do well in school. Kris, I pray the your health is improving daily and that your soninlaw is wrapped in God's love. To anyone else that I have missed, I appologize, but God knows all your needs and he will answer all prays in His time. Please continue to pray for one another, there can never be to much prayer. God Bless you all, Bonnie

welcome back bonnie; and what a testimony of just WHAT GOD CAN DO. that is wonderful ,and that slap he got on the back on the neck was GOD WAKING HIM UP , and i am so very glad that he has made the true and wonderful great and mighty move to GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS GIFT , THE GIFT OF HIS SALVATION. OH YES! I AM SO GLAD THAT BRIAN MADE THE DECISION TO ACCEPT JESUS INTO HIS HEART , AND WHEN GOD GETS AHOLD OF YOU , EVEN THE WALLS THAT NOONE THOUGHT COULD BE BROKEN , ARE, BECAUSE LIKE A MIGHTY THUNDER , GOD CAN COME IN AND REMOVE EVERYWALL THAT EVER BLOCKED YOUR HEART AND TEAR THOSE WALLS DOWN , AND START A NEW GROWTH WITHIN. AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!!!!!AND YOU CONTINUE TO LIFT EACH OTHER UP , AND KEEP THE FAITH STRONG IN YOUR HEARTS , FOR WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. LOVE , KRIS

Good morning everyone!
Bonnie, it was really great to hear from you again and what a testimony you have!!!! It gives me hope for my daughter Rachael and for John.
Sometimes, I focus so much on the negative that I forget what an awesome God we have and things can change in an instant. Thank you all for your prayers and my prayers are with each one of you as well.
With His love,
Joni

Hello all,

Bonnie, I am so happy for you and I will keep praying for you, Brian and Paige - that is wonderful news!

I wanted to let you all know that I was laid off on Friday and I am using a friend's computer right now. My boss found out I was looking for another job - don't know how but he did and he wasn't happy. I am okay with it though because that job made me as unhappy as hte one before. I seem to be in a rut when it comes to my employment - I've gone through 2 jobs in the past year. The last job I had for 4 years. I'm going to try and break out of the legal field and see if it is possible. So please pray that I find the right job this time. I am getting unemployment and it will get me by for a little while. Thank God I got so much money back on my taxes. I don't know how often I will be able to post so I will be praying for you all and keeping you in mind. Brett is having problems again and between that and losing my job things have been a little rough. But I know God will see me through. Love you all Q

3/16/2004 17:26

Quig, when it rains for yo it pours doesn't it. I'm sorry to hear about your job but as you say God works in mysterious ways. you can't close one door with out an other one open..i think that,thats how the story goes anyway. hope every one is well i'm on sring brack so the insatnity of classes and worked has ceased this week thank god. Kritie i hope all is well with you bonni hope all is well with your son. lov and light to all Jessica


jonilnowm
3/17/2004 11:06

HELLO ALL:
Quigley: I felt bad to read that you were laid off but we all know how much more we lean on the Lord when we can't do anything else!!! I will pray that a new field will open up for you soon. The Lord can do abundantly more for us than we can ever imagine but sometimes we have to stretch our faith...(oh how I wish we didn't have trials to test our faith-but how else can we 'learn' complete trust?)
Please pray that the Lord's will be done this Friday when John goes back to court. (part of me wants him just to go to jail and be out of Rachael's life)
Rachael still doesn't have a clue about putting her son first even before doing things for John so we are in for a LOOONG road ahead with raising her son.
Kris: I hope this day finds you in better health. How are things going with your son-in-law? You will be in my prayers for sure.
BettyAnn: How's the puppy? It never ceases to amaze me how much stuff you are required to remember in the health profession so I am in awe of your diligent studying. Keep up the good work!
Bonnie: I hope you all are doing well and staying close to HIM.
I hope everyone 'feels' HIS touch somehow, some way this St. Patrick's Day.
With HIS Love,
Joni

I am new and so apologize for not knowing you guys and jumping in here. My son was addicted to drugs and I felt helpless. He died from fetanal (synthetic morphine) patches. He was 36. It has been almost three years since. I feel empty. I love Jesus and wish I could do something in Mark's memory. There is lots to say but I will end here. I read the first page about Tommy and wanted to contribute because it was in 01 that I lost my son.
