Time For a Change

Thank you to all that 
are here on the soup,
you have helped me so 
much and have been a great group.

I have taken all your comments
and kind words to heart,
now it is up to me,to
make a fresh start.

It's time for me to reach
out and seek GOD'S hand,
listen closely to his words,
and try to understand.

I know I can't change,
unless I put up a fight,
it is now time for me,
to make things right.

Every morning I wake,
I will reach for a goal,
say a prayer,
and cleanse my soul.

Don't think I didn't listen,to
all the advise you gave to me,
I know that love and prayer,
will be what sets me free.

         DEDICATED TO ALL YOU SOUP MEMBERS WHO WERE THERE FOR ME!!

                         YOUR SOUPER FRIEND
                             COLLEEN

I heard John Astin sing a song today in church; "No wave ever leaves the ocean; nothing that arises ever escapes the sea; there can be no returning to what we've always been." The imagery reminds us that even when we seem to wander off, or forget, or deny, or resist, the essential truth of our being is that we are a wave in the Great Ocean of God's Love. I find that comforting. This is a beautiful poem Colleen. You've turned your gaze back to Truth. Remember-Praise, Gratitude, Love, Compassion

This brings so much joy to my heart this Sunday afternoon, Colleen!! I can hear the change in your words! Please keep on writing, keep on praying, we'll be praying for you too! Ask God to send some good people into your life for support and friendship and whatever you do ask him first. He's always with you, you know that. Look how far you have come!! Take care. Peace, Audrey

I do love this, Colleen. You have set a good goal. God can set you free and cleanse your soul. You just have to hold on with both hands and all of your heart. Forgive mistakes...yours... and others. And make a fresh start each day. God bless you, dear child of God, Colleen. You are in my prayers. Love to you. Dane Ann
