About MeThis is a brief passage of where I was, where I am now. Please ask if you want to know more. I spent 26 years of my life in alcoholic addiction. I stole the peace of mind from my family, I stole money from my family, I did what I wanted to for alcohol. I cheated, stole, created mayhem for 26 years. Lost my driving license twice in 2 years, slept rough of and on for 3 years. All in the name of alcohol, every defect you could think of I had because of alcohol. I came to Alcoholics Anonymous at the end of 2005, got sober. Never had a drink/drug since. I was up until January 2011 an avid, angry atheist. I despised the church and I had a issue with race. I blamed God for everything even though I was an atheist. Since the middle of January 2011, my thinking has changed, in January I met a Sister of the roman catholic faith, she is also Polish. This lady touched my soul like nothing I have ever felt before. They say God/Jesus can work through people.I have met people in AA that are serene, at peace with themselves, have that special inner peace but this ladies presence hit me like a sledge hammer. Even though I have fallen back at times with my feelings, are they real, am I really feeling this at peace with myself, have I been touched by God/Jesus to feel this serene. All I know is since that day in January, I read the bible, don`t really understand but open minded to know more about Jesus and Gods plan, I pray for others, I can feel my prayer inside my inner core when I pray, not every time but most of the time I feel it. I no longer feel alone as I did when I was drinking. 2001 I first read the `Footprints In The Sand` poem and immediately felt a lump in my throat. A bass player of a group I listen to mentioned the `The Prayer Of Salvation` when his father died, I listened to it, it put a lump in my throat and a tear came from my eye. Now this lady of the catholic faith has touched my soul. I sometimes feel as though I have a strong presence near me. I am interested in knowing more about Jesus. Please share back with me.
