    Its the book youve life to me thanks to king David

    Dear Irene; the Lord Jesus loves you, and doesn't hold any hard feelings about the past; but He said that He wouldn't ever mention those things to us again, after we've turned from them and now do right. We are in very dreadful times, and we all have family members who are out there, still in their sins and in grave danger. We bring them to the Lord in our prayers and stay true friends regardless.

    Anne, that was just beautiful. I so regret I 'backslid' during my children's pre-teen years - for the next 34 yrs. and now they are into drugs, in and out of prison, but for the last almost 3 yrs., since I'm back with the Lord, He hears my prayers. It is SO important to raise them in the Word of God. They are our responsibility, not our hindrance to our own lives.
