Away From Home

This move has been very hard on me because I like to be very independent and the place I am in now is not home.  It’s just a house that is not made to accommodate what I need to have to live by myself. I feel like I have gone backwards on my recovery. I know I can’t change the past and I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me so I have to hold my head up and go on. God tells me to go on….so I do!

  1. Thanks for sharing Mike. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to go through this.

  2. Keep the faith Mike, and remember there are many others who are going through the same challenges you are. Thank you for your faithfullness to our congregation in greeting them every Sunday morning. I especially look forward to your being there with a smile a laugh and a handshake. Pastor Blaine
