How many times in our lives have we anticipated an event that was really important to us, only to be disappointed when circumstances altered our much anticipated plans? I am sure we have all experienced this.
I personally am so excited to be H.O.M.E. for Thanksgiving! Our certified dietician, Tammy Becerra, has already led us into the holiday season with her famous banana split cake, and pumpkin pie made by H.O.M.E. graduate, Philip Wallum. We have ventured into the season with a jubilant and grateful spirit.
“My name is Alexis Petty. I am 22 years old. I used to be a meth and heroin addict but really drugs weren’t my problem. Sin was my problem. It was so much easier to be selfish, hateful and self-destructive. Now that I have a relationship with Jesus, I live under Grace and now I love my life. He has mended my relationships with my family, but not only that, he has given me a new family as well – The House of Mercy. I couldn’t be more grateful for what God is doing in my life! Also, I can’t wait for what he has in store for the future because I know he has a plan that is greater than mine. So, I have to give my savior, Jesus Christ, all the glory, honor and praise.”
