This is a testament to God’s loving kindness and grace. Of myself, I would be a slobbering drunk. But with God’s help I am a sober woman today. What a blessing.
As I drove away from the meeting and to work, I started to cry. If I were more phony, I would tell you it was tears of gratitude. But it was actual sadness. When I saw that XXIX, I really realized that all those years have passed. I am no longer a young mother of three little ones. I am no longer a wife. I am no longer many things. I am so much older.
But I am no longer a drunken, ashamed woman. I am sober. And there are people who actually say I have helped them. What a deal. Twenty-nine years sober.
By God’s Grace Only.
Only by the Grace of God.
