Words for Life's Journey...

When Mother Teresa received her Nobel Prize, she was asked, "What can we do to promote world peace? " She replied, "Go home and love your family".
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3

I had a drug problem when I was young.

I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
I was drug to family reunions, no matter the weather.
I was drug to the bus stop to go to school every weekday.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers.
I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents.

Those drugs are still in my veins, and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin; and if today's children had this kind of drug problem, the world might be a better place....Amen
