My prayers go out for your son, Kindeyes, and although I am not Catholic, I often pray to St. Michael the Archangel who drove the devil back to hell. He's my personal saint when I need one, as my son shares his name and also fights demons.

It's all out of our hands, dear Kindeyes, all we can do is light a candle and turn it over.

Big gentle hugs to you, no mother should ever have to ever walk in our shoes.

Thank you for your kinds words and prayers. Even though I couldn't check in earlier, I have no doubt that your prayers kept me going today at work. I managed to have a busy productive day.

In answer to some of your questions, I have not called the police. I don't know where my son is so I couldn't tell them where to find him. I don't know where the man who shot at him and beat him is and don't know his name. My son is convinced that this man will kill him if he presses charges. I simply can't get in the middle of it. Reporting the crime is up to my son. And he isn't making much sense....sounds very paranoid and his behavior has escalated to a fevered pitch trying to get me to "react" with text messages that make little sense.

I am concentrating on reading my Al-Anon and Nar-Anon literature and trying to find my serenity. Praying. This matter is truly in God's hands.

Thank you again for your prayers today. I really needed them this morning as I wasn't doing well. I've got my wits about me at this point and also have the support of my family group friends.

Time will reveal what happens. It is out of my control. I cannot fear that which I cannot control.

gentle hugs

I am so very sorry. Although I do not pray, you are in my thoughts & sending strength your way. No mother should have to go through what you are going through. Although my little girl is only 4, I can only imagine the devastation & crushing pain. Also brings up to the surface all of the incredible pain I've brought onto my mother as a result of my addictions. ((gentle hugs))

My message of comfort for yourself and your son are sent in my prayers.

I feel that you gave the most loving gift a parent can give, that being
your love for him as only this can come from a kind heart and soul.

Dear Kind Eyes, I hope that you have a good day today. This is a terrifying situation that you are dealing with. I pray for you and your son that he finds his way through this. Even if his texts aren't making sense, at least you know that he is alive.
Praying for your peace and giving you strength for today.
TT

Kindeyes,

You are fearlessly staring down the "what-ifs." And you can be certain that for every person who posts their prayers and gentle hugs for you and your son, there are many others here who are praying, as well.

Kind Eyes....

I am speechless at the moment.

First by the situation

Secondly......humbled by your grace.

I join you and the others in soulful prayer.

Kind eyes,
Praying for you and your son.

I've always felt that our H.P. has a plan for each of us.

The hard part is trusting our H.P.

Faith and prayers coming your way.........
