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.

hey guys how are u? i'm okay hanging in there i had 4 months on the 26th.Jim and i are working together again at the hosp. and it wasn't even ackward it feels good to be comfortable. were not together but it was like none of the past 6 months ever happened. i start the club next fri. i 'm alittle nervous but i know that i can do this. as for you BA i'm with Kris enough is enough. you are an ALCOHOLIC one drink will kill you and as you can see it never just ends at one.well see you right back to where you started in a couple of weeks i can garentee it. no ?'s asked. what ever only you know when enough is,obviously you don't care. or you wouldn't keep doing what you do,especialy since you know a better life exsists.i'm not giving up on you but i do not pitty you either.you make your own bed i guess you can lay in it. i do love you and i will pray for you.but prayers can only get you so far in life before GOD actually says you need to walk the walk,it's like you call to him for help,as you are dancing with the Devil.what kind of message do you think your saying.i think that yes you may be bi-polar and that in itself is hard,but not an excuse or a crutch. maybe yo need REHAB since nothing else is working for you.....or maybe you need to lose everything.addicts always end up in JAILS,INSITUTIONS,DEATH.....THATS A GIVEN AND PROVED TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
Q-you to girl,give up the bottle now there an oppertunity that i'm sure God is sending your way,does Paul drink?hows Taylor doing? i hope things are etting better. isn't love grand?lol..
Kris-I hope you doing well, it seems that your the only one on here with there life together how much clean time do you have? and where on earth do you get your patience from?and will you share? got to go i love you all. Jessica

Jessica,

Paul does drink but not a lot. He is usually the designated driver. Taylor is doing fine and is excited about moving into Paul's house (the pool seems to be the clincher) He just has such a big heart tho, and he lets people move in and stay there that aren't always the best people to be with. I told him that has to stop - and he said he knows that. He is hoping that I will be good for him and help him to straighten out his life - I only hope it is not the blind leading the blind. Pray for us that we can lead better lives and slow down the pace a little. Things seem to be mellowing out with Brett. I have court again tomorrow to contest his restraining order against me. I pray he doesn't show up. He has a new girlfriend (or about 5) - BA & Jessica - my girlfriend, Jaci read your posts and she felt that Jessica's post was extremely harsh & hypocritical - it would put me on the defensive side I think - I believe this site is for support for addicts and maybe we should choose our wording carefully so that we don't sound "Holyer Than Thou". It isn't up to us to judge each other and if you falter, this should be a place to come where you can air your problems without fear of critisicm. Just our opinion (Jaci & Q).

God bless,

Hi all!
Been a while since I've posted, but sure doesn't seem to matter! Same ole same ole!!
Just finished reading the posts, & one thing I gotta say is this:
LISTEN TO JESSICA!!!!!!!! She is NOT JUDGING YOU!!!!!!! She is right on the money, and the responses are typical ADDICT!!!! Sorry girls, but the TRUTH is the TRUTH!!!! She's telling you like it is, and from around the tables, and she KNOWS the program works, and also that NO ONE gets set free until THEY WANT TO!!!!!!!!!! If it seems she is being harsh, sometimes the TRUTH IS HARSH!!! and hard to handle!!!!
I don't post as often as I used to, because I realized I wasn't getting through to any one!! AND GOD'S WORD TELLS US TO WALK AWAY, IF HIS WORDS FALL ON SWINES EARS!!! Doing what God wants, is the purpose of my life, so I guess if this isn't recieved well, then it just isn't, but I gotta tell it like it is anyway.
I do love you all in Christ, and I hope you get your lives together, IF that is really what you want!!
God Bless you all
In Christ Jesus Love,
Angel/Cindy

ANGEL/CINDY- THANK-YOU SO MUCH YOU SAID THAT WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD IN YOUR HEART IF THEY DON'T GET IT NOW WE STILL NEED TO PRAY FOR THEM. PRAYING IS AN HONOR AND GIFT. ALMOST CRYED WHEN I READ YOUR POST AS I KNOW IT IS HARD TO WALK AWAY FROM PEOPLE YOUR REALLY LOVE, AND I BELIEVE YOU REALLY LOVE THESE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE. I KNOW GOD IS STILL TRYING TO REACH THEM OR YOU WOULDN'T OF POSTED. THEY JUST DON'T THINK RIGHT YET. IF THEY DID THEY WOULD BE PRAISING JESUS INSTEAD OF DRINKING AND GOING BY THE WORD OF GOD. (AS FAR AS THE REMARK ABOUT JESSICIA BEING HOLIER THAN THOU SHE HAS SOMETHING TO BE HOLY ABOUT WE SERVE A HOLY GOD AND THE BIBLE SAYS WE ARE TO BE HOLY AS HE IS HOLY. I AGREE WITH CINDY SHE WAS ONLY TELLING YOU TRUTH. PLEASE BE HUMBLE ENOUGH AND ACCEPT FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. JESUS LOVES YOU DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YET? WE SHOULD LOVE HIM ENOUGH TO WANT TO WALK A HOLY WALK. AND TELL PEOPLE I AM STAYING SOBER FOR JESUS. WHEN YOU WALK A NEW WALK AND TALK A NEW TALK OTHERES WILL COME TO JESUS. NOW GOD LOVES YOU BA AND QUIGLEY PLEASE LISTEN TO THESE THAT ARE TRYING TO GET THROUGH TO YOU. THESE OTHER WOMEN REALIZE THINGS YOU VERY POSSIBLY DON'T UNDERSTAND YET ABOUT TRUTH. SO PLEASE LISTEN TO THEM. THANK-YOU FOR LISTENING. THANKS PRESONALLY JESSICIA AND CINDY.SHARON

Im not mad at anyone certain person, but I feel tonight the site is starting to judge, and GOD is the only judge...What about all the ministers and preists that loved god and served god all their life's and now are being suied for child abuse, melistation, rape..etccc..I can go on and on and on, My b'f wrokd in a prision, take the time to think before you speak..I NO GOD only wants the best for us and its all up to us, but to judge someone for drinking when their our preist out the rapping little boys, etc...It upsests me..NOT another excuse..but I DONT JUDGE CAZ JESUS DOESNT JUDGE.I have 3 homosexuals that work with me and they make me laugh daily,,,,should I tell them your going to hell your a Lesibian? It"s up to GOD not US..we all work and learn and grow in seperate ways and timing..Im finally getting better with my drinking and getting with Todd and counseling this friday for my Bi-polor, but like Q said Im no hipo-crit and I have NO respect for someone that is supposeldy A Christian putting down others when all their life they had problem till they changed. I am happy for those sober now, off drugs, etc...But the rest of us arnt making excuses,,,as you no an addict is an addict and it takes time, patience ant healing to change...Im not mad at anyone, love you all but I need a break from this site...I think my counserlor I see starting friday for my Bi-polar will be more helpfull then you hip o crits "judging: Us..........JESUS never judges, he just wants us to follow him and lately in my car thats all the music I listen too is Christen, so for all of you that make fun of me and Quigley, our time will come and "noone" is perfect, God does things in his timing and I dont feel this site Renee has created is getting anywhere, it used to be uplifting and now its all downgrades,
I wish you all the best,

Angel & Sharon, I'm sure if you think really hard you both probably have your own demons you are struggling with. Being an alcoholic is no worse than being addicted to nicotine or cheating or lying or whatever it is that you do to sin. AND WE ALL SIN. BA and I obviously came to this site for help and support and I think your attitude just plain stinks. With those type of attitudes you will only drive people away who are seeking support and help. I'm not mad either, I'm just very disappointed. You hope a good friend sticks by you thru thick and thin. It sounds as if you are saying you are tired of hearing the drama and the same thing over and over and to be honest it makes me not want to share what is going on in my life anymore. If you want to help people with addictions then you LISTEN and you try to HELP - It seems as though you have both forgotten why you chose this site. It was because you related in some way - now, to me, it sounds as tho you feel superior to those of us who are still addicted. In closing, if anyone would like to correspond with me my email is dutchangel1@yahoo.com - If there is one thing I have learned from the last year of my life it is to surround yourself with positive people, and that is what I intend to do from hereon out - God Bless....

Good evening girls~
I am really sorry that BA & you Q are upset, but I stand by what I said in MY post.If I wasn't trying to help, I would not respond to you guy's posts! I know how hard it is!! I am not judging you either - just trying to get thru to you guys, and the truth(not judging) is what addicts need, because one day it will get through!! Please read my post again,& try not to be on the defensive when you do ok? I pray for you girls, and I believe that God wants NOT ONE to parish, which includes you two! So I have to keep trying! How can I not try, & say I love the Lord & want to do what He says? I KNOW the 12 step program WORKS IF you work it! It really does!!! It just takes time. I do wish you guys would give it a couple of months.If you just get there that first time, its easier the second time.As far as the truth being harsh sometimes - that goes for ALL not just addicts!!As far as the homosexuals BA, YES!!! YOU SHOULD LEARN WHAT GODS WORD SAYS ABOUT THEM, AND TELL THEM!!! Most definitly!!!! We are supposed to do GODS work-which includes telling people what God says in HIS HOLY WORD!!! As far as you not judging people BA, I believe you were calling someone names(hippo-crit) as you put it, and made the statement about someone "supposedly a Christian" What is that exactly, if it is not judging?
Q- NopE! Don't feel superior to any one!
I too am very disappointed!! How many times can you lead a horse to water???Ya know, I'm not gonna say poor Quigley or poor BA, because we all make our own choices, and thats not what a friend does!! Even if the other person DOES get mad, the best thing we can do is to be honest with that other person. Thats being a friend!!Why LISTEN to someone, and then just tell them what they want to hear? Is THAT being a friend, Quigley?? Its not in my book. I make no BONES about what I think & feel about drugs, & booze to MY OWN KIDS!! WHY WOULD I WITH YOU GUYS??? And ya know, MY KIDS have the greatest RESPECT for me!! EVEN MY SON WHO IS OFF THE CRACK, AND ON THE METH!! BUT I WILL NOT BABY HIM, OR SUGAR COAT ANYTHING WITH HIM, BECAUSE THAT JUST MAKES IT WORSE FOR HIM, AND GIVES HIM A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY!! I LOVE him UNCONDITIONALLY so why would I do that? I hope and pray that you two girls understand and hear what I am trying to say to you!I have not given up on you two. I just know we all make our own choices. I've said it I don't know how many times, but I will say it again- when we get OURSELVES right, everything else falls into place!
We can't help others when we can't or won't help ourselves.One day you girls WILL understand if you don't now, when you get clean & sober. God Bless you both, and keep you in His loving care & protection. I will be still praying for you.
Love in Christ Jesus,
Angel/Cindy

Angel and Quigley and ALL,
Like I stated I'm not mad nor defensive with anyone. I look back at my life the past 2 years and IM VERY PROUD of the road Ive been lead. I was a full blown 7 day week drunk and pills addict, lost house b'f, and ALL..Was in rehab and totally quit for 1 month which is when about I joined this site. I have slipped back occasionally into old habbits due too LOTS of stress but I NO GOD AND I have a better plan. I have changed my life at 40, back top school and now a nurse with a degree in 2 weeks..I have given to alot of people and gave up on me in this last year which has made me realize I COUNT , I need to take care of ME...God came to me in a dream too seek hlep because thru my drinking and gambling binges I always cryed and prayed to him at night. THANK YOU JESUS I found out Im BI-polar ang go thry spurts of depression( which is when I drink the most) then I get over excited and hyper and overwhelming with life so I go gamble from 9pm to 5am in the morning, but IM very happy caz Jesus led me to a good shrink I start seeing this friday and b'f is behing me all the way.,since we put our dog down we are getting along great and the medication for my Disease has really mellowed me out, so for voicing my opion to all, QUIT thinking Im on the defensive, I could care less what people think of me as of today, its what I think of myself that got me here and what GOD thinks..I love opionions and suggestions but thats about it.Like I stated, Im not angry with anyone, I joined this site 1 yr ago when I tryed to kill myself, sleeping pills over dose and I look back and Ive come very far, and I no in my heart GOD will take me farther.Im sorry you all took it the wrong way but like Quigely said ..what happened to the uplifting side? Kris I love to death, do you think with her Illness GOd likes her smoking? That is the number 1 killer SMoking? but we get knocked down for a beer or 2???? I'm not judging caz thats not my job, and angel, as far as the gay people I respect them caz I have to work with them and its not MY JOB to tell them its wrong in the bible as is many other things on this site that people think are ok caz its legal, etc......,MY GOAL IS FOR ALL TO BE HAPPY, HEALTHY, FREE FROM ANY TROUBLES OR ADDICTIONS THEY ARE GOING THRU, In GODS timing, what you may want all of us to have GOD for now may feel different. Im doing much better and lost a good friend at work that died yesterday and WOKE ME UP. that LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF It.God bless all,
Bettyann

I will keep praying for all of you. Angel, you and I think differently about the way you reach a person - and we are both entitled to our opinions. God Bless you all Q

hey jessica!you go girl; dont ever be ashamed to put down the truth in here, because what you said was the truth, and i am so standing with you in agreement , and i am glad that you are doing so well. i have been clean and sober for over 20 years. i get my strength and PATIENCE, ALTHOUGH I LOST IT HERE TODAY, from GOD, I GET EVERYTHING I NEED FROM I\HIM. REASSURANCE, LOVE, GUIDANCE, TRUTH, WISDOM, AND FAITH, AND HOPE, AND OH YES I AM SO PROUD OF BEING ABLE TO SAY THAT I AM A CHRISTIAN , AND I AM VERY PROUD THAT I AM WAS BLESSED TO BE RAISED BY SUCH A WONDEFUL LOVING CHRIDTIAN FATHER, AND I AM PROUD TO BE A PREACHER'S KID/ and i take very much offense to what ba said , but then i think why, it is just stupidity showing, and i want dignify that with being as they so call put to us as being the judgers and accusers. it is very hard for me to be harsh and mean and sound hateful, because i dont like to do that, but sometimes we have tom take a stand, and jessica i am so behind you girl for telling the truth. you are tops in my book. i credit everyday that i have with GOD, i thank HIM for giving me such awesome and amazing friends he has put in my path and in my life, and i THANK HIM for acceptance, and pEACE,and HOPE, and when i hear someone say THE SWEETEST WORDS ON EARTH, OH HOW I LOVE THE LORD, THAT TO BE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST spoken testimonies anyone can say, and to proclaim their LOVE for the LORD , and to SHOPUT LOUD AND CLEAR AND TO GIVE HIM FULL CREDIT OF WHAT HE HAS DONRE IN THEIR LIVES. AMEN AMEN AMEN. JESSICA; i stood in front of a card almost 13 years ago in a packed church and gave my testimony , and told them how GOD had brought me from a life that was once lived on the streets, i fell into a deep depression at one time in my life and when i did, i lost all sense of myself and who i was , and i got into the drugs, i never done it everyday, but i had to try it , and i was always the one who couldnt sat no, or that you dared to do something and i did it, so i done the cocaine, the speed and it was done with needles, and i got into alcohol, but i was never able to do it very long, which is a good thing, but it could ahve been very easy for me to have gotten used to the speed when i was younger, that is what i done mostly, and i now can have the oppurtunity to help others because i was oncew where they were, and abuse was a very big part of my life for a very long time, and i use to say just like ba and quigley, ok, take a hit, get stoned or get drunk and it will go away, but it did'nt, i only ended loosing a lot of myself for a longtime til i hit rock bottom , and i knew, i did not want to die this way, this was not the life GOD intended for me. i am so thankful THAT i have the opppurtunity to come forward with my story an help others now, bewcause the last one i was with , i almost died, i ahd been clean and sober for a lot of years, and he thought it would be funny to shoot me up in my chest with 20 cc of crank , i went into a overdose comoand nearly died, i was doa in the anbulance, that was the first time, he would try that two more times, i was so scared of him , that i didnt never try to fight back, and it almost cost me my life, and so that is why I THANK MY GOD FOR MY LIFE, FOR SAVING ME, AND FOR EVEN NOW GIVING ME THE COURAGE TO COME FORWARD AND SHOW OTHERS THAT YOU CAN OVERCOME, AND YOU CAN WIN , AND YOU CAN SURVIVE, AND WITH GOD, YOU CAN HAVE VICTORY, AND HE IS MY GREATEST STRENGTH AND MY COMFORTER. I HAVE INMY NEXT TO FINAL STAGES IN THIS HEPITITUS C, BUT YOU KNOW THAT IS OK, BECAUSE I KNOW GOD IS NOT THROUGH ME YET, BUT WHEN THAT TIME COMES I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING. THANK YOU JSSICA, AND YOU KKEP BRINGING THAT TRUTH FORWARD. AMEN. LOVE AND FAITH ALWAYS, KRIS.

SHARON; THANKS for twhat you said in here too, you spoke boldly and loudly with truth, and i too stand in agreement with you too. it is amazing how noone is willing to hear the truth when it stares youmin the face, and ba is right on one thing, we were there at one time where she is, and that is the difference between then and now, we woke up, grew up, and came forward with trith, they however still choose to live as they live. live your life in the way THAT you would jhave others see you and reconize you, and be able to distinquish the character and backbone of one who overcomes, and one who never learns; one who tries , one who lies; one who believes, one who retrieves; one who conquers, one who lies in defeat. one who rescues and saves, and throws out thelifeline, and one who watches in the background it all fade in the distance. there are those who choose to be a voice, and others who choose to deny it. thank you sharon for being a voice. love and faith , kris

bettyann, quigley, and all on here still struggling, you better start listening, stop this rollercoaster, and stop being mad and defensive at theones who are trying to reach and help you. because , you are going to loose at this. it is a no win situation, and i AM VERY PROUD AND HONORED TO BE CALLED A CHRISTIAN.

bettyann; there is a difference, and it is called righteous anger, because when i got off here, i thanked GOD for giving me the boldness to stand strong, and come forward to give it to your girls the way it is, and you say you are not mad , and you are not defensive, but it is not the truth bettyann, and we all jnow it here. so as soon as you and q get to facing the truth deep inside , then and then only can you be able to move forward and ahead, you are still livivng in a daydream world, and it is time to wake up. i am sorry that i have had to come on here , and be like this, but i am not sorry for telling the truth. so deal with it. that is the WHOLE promblem HERE, AND YOU CAN DENY IT ALL YOU WANT, YOU ARE NOT FOOLONG ANY BODY BUT YOURSELVES. AND YOU SAYTHAT YOU ONLY CARE WHAT GOD THINKS OF YOU, WELL OBVIOUSLY NOT, BECAUSE IT IS ONLY WORDS YOU ARE SAYING, YOU DONT CARE WHAT GOD THINKS AND FEELS AND SAYS ABOUT YOU, BECAUSE IF YOU DID, YOU CERTAINLY WOULD NOT BE ATTACKING HIS CHILDREN, AND YOU WOULD WAKE UP AND SEE THAT HE HAS BEEN CALLING OUT FOR YOU TO COME TO HIM WITH A FULL AND CONTRITE HEART ANDS SPIRIT AND YOU MY FRIEND HAVE NOT DONE THAT. THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ON THAT, TILL GOD LEADS ME TO SAY SOMETHING ELSE. I STAND NOW AND ALWAYS WILL BY THE LOVE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR , AND I THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR ME IN MY LIFE AND CONTINUEWWS TO DO, AND I AHVE TOLD YOU GIRLS TIME AND TIME AGAIN, IF WE DID'NT CARE , WE WOULD 'NT GIVE A RATS PATOOTY WHAT YOU DID, YOU COULD GO DRINK YOURSELVES INTO BALIVIONS , BUT THAT IS NOT OUR STYLE, WE CARE , WE CARE WHAT HAPPENS, AND IN CASE YALL SEEM TO HAVE NOT GOT THE PICTURE YET, WE HAVE BEEN TRYING OUR HARDEST TO SAVE YOUR LIVES, AND GET YOU TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOINFG, AND LET ME TELL YOU HONEY. WITHOUT GOD, YOU HAVE NOTHING. SIT ON THAT AWHILE. I STILL LOVE YALL, AND ALWAYS WILL, BECUASE I FELT A LEADING TO YALL A LONG TIME AGO, BUT I WILL NOT KEEP LETTING YALL PLAY THIS SAME BROKEN DOWN OLD RECORD.

AND DONT EVER EVER MAKE THE MISTAKE OF SEEING THE BAD IN THE GOOD AND TURNING IT AROUND, BECAUSE ALL WE HAVE EVER DONE IS TRY TO BE THERE FOR YOU GIRLS, LOVE AND SUPPORT YALL WITH TRUTH AND HONESTY, AND WITH OUR HEARTS, WE HAVE OPENED UP TO YALL, SO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO PLAY THIS LIL BLAME GAME , AND HIDE BEHING THE TRUTH GAME, GO AHEAD, YOU ARE ONLY HURTING YOURSELVES. I ASK THAT GOD BE WITH YALL AND BRING YALLL TO THE FULLNESS OF HIS GRACE AND GLORY, AND I ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, AND I ALSO KNOW WHAT GOD CAN DO. I ASK THAT YALL FORGIVE ME, BUT IAS SAID, I STILL STAND IN MY TRUTH, BUT I DONT LIKE TO BE MEAN TO ANYONE, BUT SOMETIMES TO HAVE TO STAND IN A FORCEFUL TONE TO BE HEARD IN TRUTH, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. I ASK THAT YOU COME TO THE TRUTH, UNTIL YOU DO, I DONT KNOW. LOVE, FOREVER, KRIS

WOW ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS WHERE IS THE LOVE ON THIS SITE FOR ALL OF US ADDICTS? ON MAY 14, 2004 I WILL BE CLEAN AND SOBER FOR 7 MONTHS. I am so Proud of myself for coming this far in my recovery. A lil update on me and my family..... Well it has almost been 1 month since my children have been back home. It has been a up and down road. Things are going pretty well however; there is some issues that I am facing with the adjustment of the children comign home. It's getting better as long as I stay focused and follow thru on what I say. U know talk the talk and walk the walk. There is other areas of my life that is trippin me the heck out. On April 14 I almost blew up. Someone wrapped cardboard soaked in some type of flamable substance and I was getting ready to take my son to school and the truck caught on fire. I was like OMG Y would someone want to hurt me? Well the only person that wants to see something bad happen to me is my childrens father. He is so ANGRY that I have gotten my children back for CPS and he choose not to do anything that CPS asked him to do. Then on May 1st, Someone poisen all of my PIT BULL puppies. They all died except for one male. I tried everything possible to keep these puppies alive but they still died. I am ok wiht that now, it just was so hard to accept the fact that no matter what I did they all still died. Then on May 5th Someone stole the mother of all the puppies. She is an Pure Bred American Pit Bull Terrier. Then on May 6th , someone tried to break into my van. The drivers door will not close now, so I have a bungy cord to hold the door close so I don't fall out. SO with all of that trials and tribulations going on I choose to focus on my relationship with GOD and my children. I am ok with life today I am just thankful for all the things that god has done for me so far. I know that everything happens for a reason and God doesn't give u anything that u can not handle. It just makes us stronger ppls. I just pray that I am safe and things will get better soon. I pray that each and every addict whether still suffering or not finds a relationship with GOD. I ask that father god places the sheild of protection over me and my family, that father god guides me in each and everything that I say and do. I pray for the breast plate of rightessness and the fruit of sprit surrounds me and my children. I pray that each and everyone that comes to this site finds the love , peace and help that we all have.AMEN NEVER GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT U ARE GOING THRU GIVE IT TO GOD AND DON'T TAKE IT BACK BECAUSE AFTER ALL WHY WORRY ?????? GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
with that I will close with ALOHA AND MAHALO for all of ur support,
Anne

I had a chance to get on and say hi and when I read the posts, I was shocked! I agree with Annie - where is the love? I've also had other friends from this site email me and say the same thing. What is going on????

I hope that everyone can let go of the anger (or whatever you choose to call it) and go on trying to help one another. It is a shame to lose all that has been accomplished here. And I feel like I have accomplished things here - that is my personal opinion about myself - I believe BA feels the same way. I think the key is to keep trying no matter how much you fail and never give up and I will never give up -I am sorry if I offended anyone with the things I said. I certainly never meant for us to strike out at each other.

I hope BA that you are doing well. I pray that you are staying sober and have the willpower to fight those alcohol urges. Annie, it sounds like you have had a very rough time of it. I'm sorry to hear that but you sound as though you are staying strong through it all. I will be praying for you and your families' safety.

I have another friend staying with me (more of a friend of a friend). I would like to ask you all to pray for her (Cassy). She is homeless and needs a good, safe, place to stay. She also needs a job and I pray that she can find those two things to start her life on a new path. Lord, give me the strength to be here for those who really need me. Keep me strong. Help me to stay away from drugs and alcohol. Thank you for the job opportunities you ahve presented me and i pray that sooner or later this path will lead me to what it is I am supposed to be doing with my life.

I pray that you can take all of the drug and alcohol urges from my body and help me to live a life of peace, love and happiness as i pray that for each of us here who take the time to talk to each other on this site. Please help all of us overcome our differences of opinion and unite together in prayer and help one another amen.
