This is a concave sculpture at Mt. Vernon the home of George Washington.

Because I was sober I was able to make a trip to Gettysburg and Washington DC. I was able to visit the Vietnam Wall....it turned out to be very emotional and also healing....without sobriety I would have never been able to hold up.

God is doing for me what I could not do for myself.

mountains

For years I tried to walk around the “mountains of truth.” I thought there was an easier softer way to get to where I wanted to be. What I wanted in life was peace and serenity, health and prosperity, friends and fellowship. Everything I truly wanted was out there, but this mountain stood in the way and had to be climbed. When you see mountains in the distance they appear to be closer than they really are. For years I walked on the path of self-centeredness without ever reaching the mountains. Along the path I found little short cuts that I thought would lead to peace and serenity. There was one called booze, another called psychedelics, one called amphetamines, and another called lust and greed. Taking these short cuts was fueled by the fear that I would never make it to the mountains. They always ended up in dead ends and I had to come back to the main path to continue on my journey. After years of useless wanderings, I gave up. At this point God sent fellow travelers along to lift me up and to walk with me. They were there to help me see the direction I needed to take and to help me avoid the dead end short cuts. Today I am in the mountains. I have a valley every now and then to cross, but with each valley I am able to still climb higher yet. The mountain I am learning to overcome is myself and I need you to help me by holding the mirror so that I can see myself in truth. Thanks for letting me share. God is doing for me what I could not do for myself…………toad
