"Now that the winter's gone, the earth hath lost
Her snow-white robes, and now no more the frost
Candies the grass, or casts an icy cream
Upon the silver lake or crystal stream;
But the warm sun thaws the benumbed earth,
And makes it tender; gives a sacred birth
To the dead swallow; wakes in hollow tree
The drowsy cuckoo and the humble-bee.
Now do a choir of chirping minstrels bring
In triumph to the world the youthful spring."

- Thomas Carew, The Spring, 1630

     I was drinking and smoking crack on a daily bases. My life was a mess and dangerously on the edge of death. After a three day binge, I was too tired to continue. Broken and beat up, I knew things had to change. I have been to The Salvation Army ARC before and knew that I needed to go back, if I wanted to get better.

     I have been working the trash compactor on docks here at the Adult Rehabilitation Center and have the opportunity to work with a great crew and supervisor. I know that, if I were still in my addiction, I would be dead right now, but through Jesus Christ, The Salvation Army has truly saved my life. As of right now, I have four and half months clean and Jesus is now in control of my life.

     Upon graduating the program, I know I have the tools to succeed, and plan to take Jesus with me to guide my life and keep me on the right path.  I know that I can make better decision, and with Jesus' help my additive life is behind me and heaven is in front of me .
