Getting critical

Well - I got the official notice of the foreclosure's in 2 weeks. I have to meet with the attorney on Monday to see if I can buy some more time........I have no one to blame but myself, and I cannot help but think I'm a disappointment to my son. It doesn't make it any better that his mother drinks WAY too much and doesn't seem to care that this has affected him greatly. My own drinking was (is) certainly a problem, but it has been easier to not do so because of him.........I did not drink today. Day 387........

Maybe it's time for a fresh start.......I have to face this latest hurdle head on.....


387 days , that's amazing!!!    
"No matter how critical your circumstances, you have much to be proud of and to celebrate! Congratulations on 387 days!!!! You are being tested, it is just a hurdle and you will and can make it!!! The Lord loves you and allows you to be tested, so you can prove your faith. Do not give up and carry on with faith!!"

Your Son    
"You may have not been a great example in the past, but think of the example you are setting now. You are sober and doing all you can for him. That is a great thing. Our kids don't have to see us as perfect people. Seeing us recover from mistakes and take responsibility can be great for them as well. Feel good about the fact that you're doing the right things now. Do all you can and then let God handle the rest. Congratulations on your sobriety and good luck with the house."

Keep up!    
"Keep up the hard work! It is great that you are sober. I pray that whatever happens with the house is God's will and that it will only strengthen you and your son in the end!"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
