If you could change something what would you change?
I can only change my past by changing my future, I know that doesn’t make much sense, but stay with me here.
I cannot change the things I’ve done, I can’t change the person I’ve been, but I can learn from the mistakes I’ve made and change who I am going to be, thereby growing from the roots of my past mistakes.
I would never change my walk with God and Jesus, only wish I could have made the journey sooner.
If you could relive one day, when would it be?
I would relive my Baptism day, everyday again and again for the rest of my life, if that was my Groundhog Day, I would never tire of life.
What’s one thing that really scares you?
Now I found God in my life, it scares that if I stop counting my Days, I might also lose my walk with God.
What one dream have you not completed yet, and do you think you will be able to complete it?
My ultimate dream would be to rebuild my relationship with my Partner, under the love God, I don’t know whether that dream will ever come to fruition, but I’ll keep praying.
If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
I don’t deserve to be anybody other than myself, my shoes are mine to walk in and I will live and die by my mistakes, my failures, my triumphs and my achievements.
I wouldn’t wish anybody else the pain of walking in my shoes either, for one thing they smell a bit, plus I’m only a size seven (UK size), a bit small for most normal men.
I was over at Lisa’s blog – who posted your testimony! That a super-great one!!! God has done a fabulous job in you, you know that?
Well I just wanted to say that I SAW YOUR PICTURE! So that’s what you look like!!
You have a very, very cute smile. 😉
love you buddy,
Thanks, I hate having my picture taken, I always feel so unnatural, but thanks anyway.
Haven’t heard from you is several days. Just checking up on you. Hope you’re all right.
love you buddy,
Thanks for the follow. When you have time you could check out my writing and music pages! Sue
Thank you for looking in and following my blog, I will take the time to have a good look round yours, I look forward to reading more.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yours looks really interesting. Will peruse it a bit more. Blessings!
That’s no problem, thank you for returning the visit, I hope you enjoy it.
What an inspirational story, even though so far I’ve only uncovered a tiny bit of it. (Much more of your blog to see!) This story touches close to home for me… Someone VERY close to me has been a closet alcoholic for years. I didn’t know it until recently. And I didn’t know just *how* bad it was until VERY recently. It’s funny that I didn’t see it sooner. I was just a kid, I guess… Anyway, good for you for finding your new life. I find this inspirational and encouraging. And thank you for your interest in my blog…
Thank you for stopping by and I am so glad that you have found my writing of some help. My intention initially was to give a testimony that may help other alcoholics, I never realised that it would also help many people who have lived with alcoholics, whether they were aware of it or not.
Thank you for your kind comment, comments like this inspire me to keep writing.
“To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy–to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages now and forevermore! Amen!” Jude 24-25 He’ll never let you go!! Blessings on your living for Him–one day at a time! Thanks for checking out my blog and for “liking”.
Thanking for returning the compliement and the your wonderful comment.
Why don’t you put a “Contact Me” Page up? It’s the little square icon just above the Bold/Italics icons on the new post page. You can make a Page from it and it will show up on the top of your blog. You probably already know how to do this but just haven’t gotten around to it yet [?] Or maybe, you don’t want people to contact you this way [?].
Here is a post by a blogging friend, that you just HAVE to read.
love you buddy,
Dear Wayne, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog last night. Thank you for all the Likes. Your support means so much to me. I use my blog as a way to heal, experiment with a broad palette of emotions and, at the same time, hope that what I share connects with another person’s heart in some way. Illuminates a deeper truth. Breaks down the wall of illusion. I can see from what I’ve read so far that you’re at a crossroad in your life. All that you wish to heal and achieve I support you in your efforts to do so. May you reconcile fully with those you love. I look forward to reading more of your posts later today and following you on your path. God bless you, dear Wayne.
Hi there, friend! Thanks for stopping by my blog this week. I think it’s very sweet that your favorite day is your Baptism. Praying today for God to restore your relationships and bring healing in all areas. (I am a fan of Groundhog Day as well… one of my favorites!). Blessings to you! Keep walking with HIm.
Hi Wayne, thank you for dropping by my blog and deciding to follow. I hope you won’t be disappointed. It’s wonderful that you have found peace and faith in God. May He continually bless and encourage you. Always remember what it says in Psalm 68:19 my friend.
Hi there! I found you while poking around “Far Fetched Friends.” The title of your blog JUMPED OUT at me like something very, very familiar. I have been sober for a few 24 hours, by the Grace of God. I’d love it if you’d come visit my blog; I’ve got a page up about my journey to sobriety. Definitely going to follow you on your journey – it can be a challenge but it can be such a beautiful thing 🙂
You write so well!!!!! You realising your past has already made GOD answer your prayers.Your partner will feel it and I am sure.Stay blessed forever family man:)
Wayne – Powerful words that no one else could have provided the words for except yourself. As a multiply addicted individual I’ve stripped away at layers for 20+ years. It wasn’t until I took the 12 Steps seriously and worked each one honestly for each of my addictions that I had any hope of moving towards recovery. Wayne, you continue to encourage me that being in recovery is truly one day at a time and I’m the one that must believe I have the power to do this, along with my higher power (in my case, God). Thanks for a thought provoking blog. Sheri
Hi Wayne…I am loving the hope and inspiration in your blog; and the authenticity. Alcohol addiction has had an effect on my life as the child of an alcoholic, and as I share two children with an alcoholic (both are in recovery now). I have seen their lives crumble to the ground, leaving a path of destruction-and then begin to rebuild. There is hope for your relationship- my own parents divorced when the alcohol took completely over… they both moved on with other partners (which didn’t work out), then they reunited, after over 10 years later!
Thank you for sharing that with me, it came on a day when I was feeling all hope slipping away, I know I have to keep holding on and let God work in us both, but you have helped to rekindle that hope.
We all have a story, Wayne–and God knows it from beginning to end, and the middle. I, too, am grateful that He saved me by grace–and continues to save me each day that I walk with Him. God bless you abundantly today, and always.
Hi, Wayne. I’m so happy you’re visiting and following my blog! Your questions and answers above are straight from your heart. Thanks for letting us into your life and your thoughts. You’ve made a great start on your recovery journey. Congratulations! Keep writing, keep singing and keep talking about what’s happening. Your life is important.
Thank you also for visiting and following my blog, thank you also for your kind and encouraging comment.
Are you a martial artist?
Yes, I am a 4th Dan black belt in Shotokan karate, been doing it now since I was six, it’s been a long journey and in the dark days of my drinking, it was probably the one thing that kept me alive.
Sooooo cool!!!!!! My brother loves martial arts!!!! And I also have a fascination!!!!! Sooo coool!!!!!!! Wow every since you were six?!?!?!
When I read that you would like to relive your baptism day, for a moment I went “?”, with the picture of a baby in my head. Then I realised you probably have been baptised as an adult. 🙂
Just wanted to say “hi”, while I am hopping around your blog, reading…
Wish you all the strength you need! Take care!
Dear Wayne, hope you feel much better Praying for you 🙂
Sounds like you have been through a good little bit in your life! But you have come to the Lord…the old man has been put off and the new man is now put on. Good for you. Thank you for the visit and following, I will be returning the gesture…
