  1. Let the person who needs help check these guys out: Passages Malibu AA makes people constantly say, "I am a recovering alcoholic or drug addict." And every week they would sound as though they were in the perpetual state of hopelessness and always on the verge of failure. Passages Malibu looks for the ROOT cause and believes in a cure so one does not struggle their whole life. They believe you can be healed. I also believe in complete healing and like the way they set things up. Although I have not been there, I have been to Alanon which did me no good and to Celebrate Recovery which was good only because I met real faith-filled people among the 12 step doers. I found that I cannot fix other people and had to work on me if I ever wanted to be free of the damages alcoholics/addicts have inflicted on me. I always tried to fix them. They have to fix themselves and me ~ myself. And that was the biggest thing I learned there. In TWI we were taught God first, others second and myself third and that is not true. You have to put your oxygen mask on first before you can help anyone. And helping someone and feeling responsible to FIX someone are two different things. I saw God work for those that pursued him. http://www.passagesmalibu.com/home.html?kmas=3&kmca=MedIMP+-+OL5OCPAGEC4&kmag=p455y34l1qf2&kmmt=p&kmkw=passages+malibu "World-Class Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center Perched over the Pacific Ocean, our five magnificent estates elegantly stretch across ten acres of Malibu coastline, offering you the perfect setting to heal your body, mind, and spirit.

  2. Very Glad that you and yours are okay. Do you have access to food? Grocery stores, etc? With the electric out I bet the stores had to throw away lots of stuff. My parents lost their home in a hurricane and it hurt them deeply, emotionally, financially and the trauma trigger Alzheimers in my step mom. When I saw the path of Sandy and the homes I was VERY VERY concerned and in prayer for you and yours. Did your house survive? Minnie? On the news they showed lines for gasoline, people without power and people who did not have food. It was frightening. I was trying to figure out how to UPS some food if you needed it, but when I tried to help my Father like that, they said all road signs were down and nothing would get through. Many "angels" went out and bought ice and took it to the people, paying for it themselves, as it was SO HOT and sticky and there were many elderly. Of course the "devils" came out as well. So glad you and yours are well. Your poor sister. When she returned home was everything okay? I hope your MOM did not have to pay for those extra weeks as she was stuck there, but I am glad she was safe.
  3. Anyone hear how she and her family is?
  4. When she says your thoughts become a part of your biology ~ it gives one pause.
  5. oops neuroscientist not neurologist
  6. On one level.... We are not alone because God is with us. But on a more human level, you have been one of the most loved people I have ever met. Wherever you have ever gone, people are touched by your love and compassion and genuinely have liked/loved/adored you. You have that kind of affect on people. If it is panic you feel, I understand and have had panic attacks. If it is worry because someone else is hurting and you feel helpless ~ that is a hard place to find yourself in. You find your way into my prayers on a regular basis and I am praying for you now. I am sorry for whatever troubles your heart and ask God to help you.
  7. Thought this might generate interest. She has given me some ideas to help people with Alzheimers and speaks of "thoughts" and scripture in a logical format of Biblical perspective and Science both.... -My link

  9. Voted for her! Is that you in there with her? Nice to finally SEE you!
  10. Roy Over the past few months, perhaps years, it seems you are going through something. Questions, deep thinking and searching for answers or seeking a resolve. I did listen to your video. I hope you find what you are looking for and can rest in the answers you find.
  11. Well Kit, I am counting on that.
  12. Kit: For years, I have said that I choose life over death ~ however, I would have chosen nonexistence over existence... if given a choice right before conception... I too, had a sucky life... (It is great now with Groucho, but in its total. I would have rather to have not been born)
  13. TWI had us convinced if anything happened like that, it was evil. Maybe some things are. But I do not believe it all is ~ without exception. I think TWI had it wrong. When Isabel came to me it was so amazing. She did not speak by opening her mouth but rather it was a knowing of what she was giving me. Peace, love, healing, wholeness... She was very lit up and wearing white. She comforted me. The kindness palatable. It was a dream and yet it wasn't. Like Moses on the mountain, thing. I do not know if I told many or any people about this. And just about 2 weeks ago, someone close to me had the same experience with someone who had passed in his family. He felt her presence for a few days afterward and it was a comfort to him. Matthew 17:2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. 17:4 Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." I guess I can believe what I want and I prefer to think that death is an enemy but nothing happens that God does not allow. So, even though I am not sure; I choose to believe God has it in his control and the dead are taken care of. And I prefer to see them already in heaven having escaped the misery of this life. Otherwise, we just decay in a box for no good reason till JC comes back, rather than live. I do think PRECIOUS in the sight of the Lord... it costs God something. But if God said it is not time, there is nothing that could take them. So, I choose to believe he greets them and takes them home, immediately.
  14. With all my heart, I want to believe the dead are alive and in heaven. And yes I have had an experience with someone who passed. It was not devilish, it was not scary and it did not cause any harm. It was healing, loving, peaceful and created great resolve with me. It was my best friend in grade school who had been hit by a car and died. Separate from that, my friend Marcus died and it made no sense at all to me, that God would take him, or allow him to die ~~ to just sleep in a box. If he had allowed him to pass to take him to a place, which is so much better than earth, then my brain and heart could handle it. Otherwise, I was mad a God, to just allow a very young man to die, to what? Decay in a box so that in 1000 years he can get up again? That does NOT make sense to me. If the choice was live on earth or decay in a box ~ then I would have to think God allowed some creepy things for stupid reasons. To take someone from pain or heartbreak to immediately surround them with love ~ seems more of a wise or okay thing and much less creepy. I have looked at scripture and it seems to indicate that they are asleep. But what a waste to allow a person 32 years old to die…. I finally, had to leave it alone and just tell God, whether he sleeps in you or whether he is productive in heaven right now, I have to believe that he is safe, peaceful and trust he is well. Isaiah 57 57 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. 2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

  17. He smokes and we talked about these ads. Anyone who smokes concerns me. I do not want to see this happen to anyone and the answer is quit smoking. That has to be easier than dealing with these tragedies... IT is a super big UGH ! I agree with you!
  18. Roy, I think Geshia spoke the truth and she did it in love. Also, I tried to email you a nice farewell from Groucho and myself and your email said it doesn't exist. Please make sure you have it correct. I checked and I used the address you provided.
