Thank-you for sharing your testimony with us. God was able to turn the negatives around and make a positive. Kim + God= a winning team!
I also felt the pain in your testimony. We might grow but sometimes past memories can still make us cry. Just ask me... after-all I am sometimes such a cry baby. My mom when I was ten years old and home sick from school, decided to take an overdose of pills and tried to kill herself. When I realized what mom had done I ran as fast as I could to a neighbors house for help with mom.
Then there was the adolescent fascintion with the occult....plus my attempts at smoking pot. From the beginning I did not like pot and only smoked twice. With the smoking of Pot the paranoia increased; I believed everybody was talking about me.
Thanks again Kim and may God Bless You always!
For you sister!....
It sounds like we have a lot in common! Is your mom ok now, later in life? I do hope so, but please feel free to share your heart (if need be)...and by all means, my prayers are with you and yours! My mom tried different ways to kill herself too. Pills with alcohol, drowning, and she tried to gas herself with a gas oven. I was unaware of these attempts because she begged her sister not to tell me. That's one thing, I do not hold it against her for not telling me, but in actuality...when a person is in a delusional state of mind, I feel it best that those who are close should know what is going on. Not only for the sake of those who care, but also the one who doesn't want everyone to know. I always wished I could beg her not to do what she did...to let her know that I loved her. I really don't think she would have done what she did, if she had realized the consequences...plus missing out on her grand-daughter.
Yes, I'm a big crybaby at times, lol. But one thing I must admit, I thoroughly hate sad movies now. If it's sad, I don't want to watch it...I know because I've had enough with the crying business, hehehe...why pay for what I've already got or had?...lol
God bless you Al,
