So, because I worked a health fair yesterday on Memorial Day, I had the day off today. I got so much done! It was wonderful!

And I had a conversation also with an addict who is halfway in recovery, which any addict in recovery knows full well means not in recovery. I told him flat out that you can’t dabble in recovery. You either decide to get help or you are still living in a bed of lies in addiction. I told him so and haven’t heard from him since. I will pray for him.

Both of these tie together and also relate to Memorial Day we remembered yesterday…


Freedom is a God-given right. It is worth fighting or dying for against any level of evil that rises against us. It is worth working to break the bonds of slavery of addiction or oppression. It is glorious and worthy and a blessing when received. Praise God for freedom! Let us always strive for it and know the high cost is worth it!❤️❤️

Wear Thankfulness

Put thankfulness on. Wear it. Have thankfulness on you all day, ready to use and be. Our amazing, loving Heavenly Father loves you so much, has given so much. His Holy Spirit is with you now. Be thankful.😃❤️

The Advantage of Surrender

Those of us who learn and run the hard way into addiction have an advantage over everyone else once in recovery. The advantage is surrender. Humility. Our addiction was winning, killing us, the hold a demon had on us was vivid and real. There was no doubt of our sins, they were obvious to all around us. We can’t pretend to be perfect, to not need Jesus. We can’t. But at some point, God showed mercy on us and pulled us up from death to life, like new birth, being born again. All from us laying our addiction down and surrendering to God for help. And because we surrendered ourselves and had this new birth, we are humble enough to receive salvation. Surrender is the key, the advantage. And after surrender, God’s love floods in and strength keeps us close to Him. Closer relationship with Christ is the reward for surrender. And that trust we can have in Him is sacred, the most important thing. Surrender is the best thing we can do.😃❤️


I wanted you to know that the daily addict blog has inspired me (not directly, but through her writing) in recovery to mentor a relatively young new friend who is struggling in recovery to keep on track or get back on as the case may be. The road is rough and we need to help each other when we can.😃❤️
