Last one standing... God

I had only spoke to my brother Shane since he got out of jail one time, until today. I didn't have to much faith that he would change but still I hoped that he would and the Church was praying for him. Today I called him to see how he was doing and to see if he had spoke to our brother-in-law. I figured he would get back to his GED classes but what I didn't expect to hear was that he had been going to Church for the last couple of Sunday's and that he had been baptized last Sunday. But that is exactly what he told me. How do I feel about it? I am happy but still cautious. I am glad that one of my siblings has found God and that my prayers were answered but it also brings a whole host of new prayers. Prayers for him to stay on the right path away from drugs, for him to find strength in God rather then trying to find it some way else, that he will take this serious ... you get the idea. I am hoping he is taking this for real and that it isn't some joke to him.

Oh my poor sister. I hope that her time in jail will reform her too. She is still in jail, the person over bond said she had $750 cash bond for both (2) charges that she has. I don't reckon anyone has heard from her husband and the last words to me was that he was probably going to take the kids and go to FL and leave her. I don't know about it at all.

Then David...he is still doing his stuff until March 26th. I don't have anything to say about his whole mess. Other then I ain't stupid I know what happened but I wish it had came from his mouth instead of me putting 2 and 2 together.

My real mom isn't talking to the oldest two. Though she really can't say to much because they are doing exactly what she used to do. Such a good example right?

My hope is that my brothers, sister, and a mom all get there acts together. Shane is trying and for that I am happy for him. I am not saying that my life is perfect or completely sin free because that would be a lie. But I am trying and making a conscious effort to make my life better for my son and myself. I still have trouble with prayer...not a strong point in my faith but I am working on it. So here is to miracles! Let's hope that God continues to work them in his ways!!


  1. What a wonderful post. It's heartbreaking to see all the pain, but wonderful how you are laying them at God's feet.
    Found you through Mama M's personals and am now following you.

  2. Are these the same people you commented on my blog about (asking me to pray for)? I've prayed for them and I definitely hope things are changing for the better :)
