I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us and for our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered death and was buried. On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. AMEN.
This is a hard one for me to answer considering I drink. BUT that being said, I’ve never done a single drug, I don’t care to. I don’t know the lingo, the slang, or what paraphernalia is associated with what. I have alcoholics and drug addicts, both recovered and active, in my family. And seeing the torment and the downward spirals they’ve gone through have been a real eye opener to me. Currently I volunteer at a men’s rehab facility about 30 miles south of where I live. My mom and I cook dinner for these 20+ men weekly. I absolutely adore it because it’s given me a new outlook on what drugs and alcohol have done to these men and our society. I have a zero tolerance policy (aside from an occasional drink with my friends). BUT that being said as well, people will do what they want, I just ask that you all be careful when you’re using/drinking. I’m not judging anybody, I just don’t care to do it myself. :)
One moment I remember more than anything is the first day he left me. I told him I’d wait. I knew it was a lie. I wish I could relive that moment and make it all better, but I can’t. We’ve all moved on, things have changed, life happens. I’m happy with that.
