It is my practice not to use a guy’s real name when I tell his story, but guys and their families always recognize them. This time he gave me permission in advance. Thought you would appreciate it. GAB
Most anniversaries are for good stuff…NOT THIS ONE
March 24 2006 – The Longest Night Ever. On this date 8 years ago, I had hit “Rock Bottom”, having squandered my recovery from drugs and alcohol addiction. More tragically, I failed those nearest to me- my family – who had sacrificed SO MUCH for me, to help me recover.
But, PRAISE GOD for HIS infinite love, HIS gift of salvation through Jesus, HIS redemption, restoration, reconciliation, and renewal. And HIS Power through the Holy Spirit. HE loved me enough to save me from physical death, pull me from the abyss, and set my feet on solid ground. And HE chooses to continue what HE started…but I won’t jump ahead too far!!
