Advent prayer for children in homes with substance abuse

Sunday, December 7, 2014AA022283

For those whose families
are impacted by alcohol use, narcotics,
gambling, eating disorders …

God, grant them the serenity
to know and believe
that what happens at home
is not their fault,
the courage,
to find the ways
to take care of themselves,
and the wisdom to understand
how addictions pass
from generation to generation. Amen.

    Maren,
    Did you mean to say: “how addictions pass
    from generation to generation”?
    (not additions)

    I love your poetry and the messages.

    Have a blessed holiday season!
    Bernadette
    PS—Diane Karr knows me as Bonnie. I almost became her sister-in-law back in the ‘70s.

      Thanks, Bernadette, I did catch the “c” but not for those who view it online without clicking through … there are a lot of those that slide past!!!! But much appreciated because it is so easy to “read” what I expect to read. And my goodness — how small the world is!
