Hope Hayes 1987 (Tupelo)

My past is dark and cold. Full of bad decisions and regret. Full of anger and rage. So much heart ake and loss. My past is full of sorrow and tears. Mistakes were made and my life was consumed with drugs, and the night life. Partying for days and nights. Birthdays were forgotten , special events were canceled. My past was very lonely and empty. Never knew true happiness. Before I knew it children got older, people past away. And lives were changed. I've seen and  hurd alot. Been in wrong places. Dangerous areas. But things are not the same. I've been tamed. And im definlly not ashamed. God found me. He found me when I was in my darkest place. He found me when death was knocking on my door step. He found me when all hope seemed so far away. God showed me that their was a better way. He showed me how to love and how to be loved. He tought me not to steal, lie, or cheat. Showed me write from wrong. Loyalty and honesty. God restored my life and my family. Cause my God is in the restoration buisiness. H we showed me my strength and not to give up. When others asked me how I did it. I responded God showed me.
