I will keep Con in my prayers. I truly hope she finds herself, and her inner strength, before something tragic happens. I enjoyed our "conversations ". She asked me questions from time to time that I tried to answer, but it never seemed that she was having any kind of trouble or doubts. I 'm sure you did what you could, but when someone is fighting their personal inner demons, they're the only ones who can fully defeat them. And sometimes those closest to that person need to take a step back before they become collateral damage. I hope her daughter has someone close to help her understand what is happening. It's so sad when children get caught up in adult issues.
Keep in touch and take care of yourself. You won't be good to anyone if you don't take care of yourself, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Thank you for your kind words and your prayers for Con and me. Early last summer she even stopped going to church, I know she is fighting alot of demons(A lot of them I did not know about until after we were married) I did what I could, she started counseling and after 2-3 trips she stopped that.The drinking got worse,she missed alot of work and got "written up". The priest who married us knew something was wrong and I told him what was going on, he tried to "reach her" but she just avoided him like the plague. She just got totally out of control and I seen it looked like she was/is determined to have a train wreck, both of my ministers told me also that I had no choice but to get off the train before it crashed and I would be destroyed too. The last time she got SO out of hand I was forced to get the cops involved, Today she still hates me for that and the divorce, but she does not understand I WAS FORCED to do what I had to do.I know most men would have punched her out but I was raised a man never hits a woman. I think highly of you, 15th and Barry, we did have some strong disagreements but at days end we remained friends and on good terms.Keep in touch, and I will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.

you're in my prayers.
this all might go back to something she mentioned along time ago about her father. it would be worth investigating and perhaps be considered in counseling.
any way i always enjoyed our discussions and even our disagreements. it challenged me in new ways and broadened my understanding of the issues.

Barry there is a MOST EXCELLENT book I have read and I HIGHLY recommend it. It will challenge everyone on what they believe and practice, but one must read the book until the end where it all comes together. The title of the book is Muscle and a Shovel by Michael Shank. You can order it directly from him at Michael Shank Ministries. it is $14.95 and more than well worth the price. I got my copy early April and I am on my third time through it. For every christian is it a MUST Read. It is a true story, the author lived and worked not far from where I work in Nashville.Thanks for your prayers for me and Con. I really hope and pray each day she can get the help she needs, yep her Dad and her childhood still haunts her. I know some folks are not able to put things behind them, as I told 15th Dalai about one of my best friends who ended up drinking himself to death over things that happened "over there" back in the day. For the most part he could not accept that it simply was not "our time" as to why some folks came back and others did not.

ITB, Barry, Dalia, I just wanted to ask that IF ever Con gets back on the thread for the record you all do not know anything about all this I told y'all, she would be mad as a wet hen.I doubt she comes back on anytime soon, but I felt she needed the prayers of some more good people. Thanks!

This is not "born again Christian dogma"....it is Scripture from the infallibly Holy Sacred Word of God. Quote: John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
This is not B.S...it is truth: Christ referred to God the Father as Holy Father. It is blasphemy to call the pope or any other man by God's name.
I will NOT repeat this dire warning ever again! Listen and follow up what I have said instead of ignoring it completely!

"Only fools like you and everyone else that followed the Born Again Christian dogma would support a costly war on Iran and Syria which would destroy our country and our economy as well! Get real and get off your blasphemy argument B.S.! Atheists and Catholics have more credibility and more reputation than all of you Born Again Christians fanatics have ever come up with your nonsense religion!"

That is what I have called Christianity Zionism!

Abby Sunderland = A Born Again Christian Fanatic

I wished she had died a long time ago because praying to god did NOT help her at all! Without the emergency beacon then she would have been dead a long time ago!

God helps those who help themselves!

"God helps those who helps themselves." A well know "quote" that is not in the Bible. There is something similar in the Quran, "Allah helps those who help his cause."

Everbody dies eventually. Nobody lives forever. An emergency beacon does not change that. Otherwise do you have a point?

RPP: stupid can't be fixed. Radical nut jobs like yourself that blaspheme God will soon join their father.

Lucifer was of the 'misquote' club --- yea, hath God said.

Even Lucifer knows. Why do you want him as your father?

You people are full of hate and would like to usurp authority over others and command their thinking. You try to tell other what they should think and how they should act trying to play god of this world. Fortunately, yourselves are the only one's deceived. The Holy Ghost of God dwelling within provides evidence of things not seen.

You are completely clueless and that is NOT true at all that you completely said that "Nobody lives forever."

They do live forever if they have all of the right ingredients for a life extension.

Abby Sunderland would have been dead a long time ago on June 9, 2010 if she did NOT have the emergency beacon at all!
