Imagine a house that had been shut up for several years. A blanket of dust covers everything. signs of decay abound" cobwebs in strings like party decorations. Stuffy and stale odors of mildew and mold. Unrecognizable knickknacks on the dust-covered mantle. Forgotten and faded pictures on stained walls. Eerie feelings that hover like ghosts from years gone by. We can't wait to open all the doors, to pull back all the drapes, to vent the shut-u[ rooms. We turn on every light and expose each da...

WE admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.


     We may be afraid to admit the nature of our wrongs, because we don't understand how God could love someone as bad as us. But child he so dearly does. Hosea was a prophet in a rebellious nation of Israel. God used him to show us his unconditional love for us.

 Step four for me, I think was the major one, that changed my life. It was then by working the steps, that I began to see that my heart was "not" has clean has I thought it was.
