ROMANS 6:19-23

I will respect [redacted] wishes and no longer write to him. I fully understand the disgust and anger towards the person I had allowed myself to become. I share it! Sadly, until 1995 I was basically that same person. The short story is that is around the time that events (my son's questions and a year-long treatment program) worked together while I was at the Fox Lake Correctional Institution to get me to truly see see the person I was.

I was devastated! I didn't even feel worthy to breathe the same air as everyone else! I hated myself! With the help of my friends, the treatment facilitators, and treatment group members I was encouraged to face the truth but not to give up on life. The bottom-line is that I could either continue to be a coward or I could face my fears and face my past as well as my present and my future.

The truth is I am no longer the person Daniel knew in Germany but I am also no longer the person who committed murder. People can choose to continue to hate me for the person I was 30 years ago but that person is already dead!

Unfortunately I cannot undo the past and all the pain I caused. But I can honor God and life by giving Him my adoration daily and never doing anything I know is wrong. And through an intimate relationship with my Lord and Savior I will continue to live a victorious life no matter where I live it!

Praise God!

I Told Her She Needs To Find The Recipe. I Am Still Driving Trucks. Had I Stayed In The Army I Would Be Retired By Now. I Was In Just In Oconto For Hunting Last Fall. Everything Has Changed. Well Not The High School Its Still The Same Crap Hole As When We Were There. Well Buddy Keep In Touch And Let Me Know What It Takes To Drop In And See You Next Time I'm Up That Way.

GLORY TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just discovered your between the bars site. Just want you to know that I am still praying for you. I just got a windows 10 laptop which is very challenging for an 83 year old lady! I bought a book "windows 10 for senior dummies" but I'm still reading the first chapter. Oh, well. Anyway, I love you and will continue to pray for you! Donna Hanson (Self Help)
