Singing this song to my daughters, I thought to myself, “One small change to the song, and it has special meaning to me.”

Jesus loves me! This I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Addicts all to Him belong,
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

It’s so amazing that God loves me in my worst and at my best and all in between.  I am so weak and depend on Him to help me live my life, as they say in recovery, “One day at a time.”

Today, Castimonia celebrates 4 years serving our Lord and King, Jesus Christ!  I could not have sustained this without His mercy and grace, without the love and patience of my wonderful wife, and the amazing men who have stepped forward to serve in the ministry.  I also thank the Holy Spirit, who speaks with an English accent, for planting the seeds and having the confidence in me to start this ministry.

I thank all of you with all of my heart and am truly grateful for all God has done with this ministry.

    Thank you for the work you are doing. Thank you for the encouragement you are to others in their journey to fight this addiction. This “thank you” comes heartfelt from a spouse who is fighting this battle with my “dear husband.” We are celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary today and we too are depending on Him “one day at a time.”

    Congratulations to you and all the men who stepped up beside you to make this happen. God delights in working through His people. Many men are glad you listened, no matter what accent the Holy Spirit had. LOL
