    Abuse and Alcoholism

    December 6, 2022 Dear God, Good morning. Today’s reading from God’s Promises for every day says Jesus is your deliverer.” I truly believe you delivered me from the hell of alcoholism and from trying to kill myself with pills and alcohol, and from being killed by my former abuser Josh. Two-thousand and eleven was the worst year I encountered. My boyfriend, Josh, physically attacked me at four in the morning. Josh’s head-butted my head, and I felt pain so severe I blacked out. I woke up to Josh strangling me with his left arm. I was choking and starving for air. I turned towards his left bicep, which was choking…

    Health and Recovery

    October 30, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I”m starting to feel better. Thank you for nursing me back to health. Three more days of steroids and rest. The book God’s Promises for every day writes, What to do when you are in doubt about yourself?” I doubt myself all the time, and I second-guess everything I do. Because my self-esteem determines how I feel emotionally. There are days when I feel strong, and I know you have the Holy Spirit lovingly watching over all of us. The Bible says, “So don’t worry, I am with you. Don’t be afraid because I am your God. I will make you strong and…

    Worry in Recovery

     October 28, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s topic in the Bible from God’s Promises for every day speaks about worry. It writes, “What to do when you feel worried.”  I am worried about Roman. He’s in the hospital again because the people on the second floor of this apartment act ghetto. They look for fights, especially Desiree. She puts negative thoughts into Roman’s mind. Like the Latin Kings are friends with Desiree. And poor Roman thinks that the Latin Kings are after him. Because of what Desiree told Roman. If we all move together to a beautiful apartment in a town called Amsbury. It would be perfect if we…

    Death and Dying

    October 25, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s reading in God’s Promises for every day writes, “What to do when someone close to you dies.” Wow, this one is a painful topic. Death sucks! Last year I lost two friends, Dan and Danny. Dan and I were close, and we talked every other week. Dan was like an older brother to me. We went to karaoke, and Dan’s voice was incredible. Dan and I sang the song “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and Don … we sang as a duo together. A bunch of us in the fellowship went to the VFW, where they had karaoke, and we were…

    God’s Promises

    October 22. 2022 Dear God, good morning. It’s early four a.m. And I’m a little tired. In my little brown book, God’s Promises for every day, I write, “What to do when you are unhappy? I was disappointed with myself for drinking again in twenty- twelve. I thought I could be a social drinker even after years of sobriety, and I was a sick cookie. I wanted to drink alcohol like a social drinker. In my case, I tried to drink normally. I tried, and I could not stop the compulsive drinking, it consumed me every day. I was unhappy because I was searching for that happy good lucky feeling,…

    Faith and Tragedy

      September 11, 2022     Dear God, good morning. I’m up early again and can’t sleep. Today’s topic is faith. Today marks twenty-one years since the Twin Towers were destroyed, and thousands of lives were lost that day. It was such a sad day for our Country, and I still get emotional about that day. I came home and cried when I saw the planes hit the towers. I was teaching in Hamilton, Massachusetts, and we had terrified parents coming into the daycare to pick up their children on that day. My prayers go out to the families still suffering from that horrible day. Today, Gary and I are…

    Alcoholic and Alcoholism

    September 8, 2022   Dear God, good morning. Yesterday I did not want to deal with the world, and all I did was rest, and I fell asleep early. On Tina’s hour, we spoke about the 24-hour book, The Thought for the day writes, “But for the grace of God, there go I.” When I see active alcoholics drinking, walking down the street with a paper bag. And the one who is waiting at the liquor store to open. I never look down on an alcoholic or drug addict. I don’t like that statement. “But for the Grace of God, there go I.” Yes, the active alcoholics and drug addicts…

    Anxiety and Depression

         September 5, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Fernando is sleeping, and it is raining hard here in New Hampshire, please Jesus, you know I am afraid of driving lately. Please guide us home safely. I was depressed yesterday, and I went to take a nap and ended up waking up at eleven p.m. Fernando asked if I was okay, and I told him I was having anxiety and felt depressed. Both combinations make it hard to function. I fell back to sleep. I woke up this morning and went on Tina’s hour. The topic is what to do when you fall short. In our fellowship, we have topic discussion’s…

    Adversity in Sobriety

      August 14, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Please, Jesus, help Gary, Roman, and myself. Poor Gary is so upset, and so am I. Roman refuses to tell the truth about what happened yesterday. Roman got increasingly aggressive with Gary. Gary was nice to let Roman use his phone so that Roman could call his father. Roman’s dad, Richard, hasn’t gotten Roman a phone yet. More adversity for sobriety. When Roman wanted to call his father, Gary said OKAY. But then, when Gary needed the phone back for the meeting, he said to Roman, “I need the phone at eight, and you can have the phone at nine.” Boom! Roman snapped…

    Spirituality Versus Adversity

    August 13, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Please give me patience this morning. I need all the spirituality I can get. Gary told Roman we were going to John’s cookout, but he couldn’t go. Roman started getting aggressive and worse. He got upset when I told him the cookout was private. Roman was demanding to use Gary’s phone. Gary told him to leave, and Roman forced his way into Gary’s room. Gary got up, and Roman physically pushed Gary. Gary was shaking and upset. Gary told Roman either you go into a day program, or if not, Geri and I are moving. Roman proceed to destroy my bedroom. I ended…
