Years Have Gone By
Eric has been in prison a long time. He is my son -- much loved. The years have been a learning time for me. Here is a blog from the past.
Shake the Shame
This brand new blog is written by a mom who has walked a personal journey that has taken her through depression, shame, guilt and feelings of failure. I've walked through it and you can too. Please come back. We'll talk about all this and more.
This post was written in June of 2007. 2007 was not the beginning. No! My son had been in prison several years by 2007, but by 2007, I had reached a point where I no longer experienced those feelings of depression, shame and failure. By 2007, I realized that the choices my child made had put him in prison -- I had not. The choices my son made did not bring about the depression, shame, built and feelings of failure that I experienced. Those choices had been made by me.
Now it is 2012. I visited my son recently. He is doing well. He says he is living for the Lord God, whom he calls Yeshua. Today I believe him. He has a parole hearing coming up and it is possible that he will be a free man within the next several months.
This free mom is grateful for freedom, too. God the one who frees us. May you walk in freedome today.
