This just takes the cake…
So we have just fired the second staff person at the Village. Yep…sure did. Why? Well, boils down to people with drug addictions are only as strong as they allow God to be. The first staff guy, we'll call him “Sleepy” for the sake of anonimity. He had been into drugs before, but said that he had 2 years clean. He had worked with several other programs in the state over the past years. Well, he fell back into drug use and soon swiped a loot of money from the guys in and over the program. I am not sure where he is right now, but we still pray for him.
Now we have, we'll call him…”Doc.” He is ultra-knowledgeable about drugs and their effects. how to pass a urine test when you are using drugs and all. He was here for a short time…about a month or so. Ends up swiping a lump of loot, the Village scooter, and some donuts. Drug binge overnight and now he is packing his stuff. We have been able to get the scooter back, but the money is gone. The donuts…sadly, were smushed and molded in the storage compartment under the seat of the scooter.
While this is a sad day just in the fact that there aren't really a ton of people that we can really trust, it makes me thankful for the friends and family around me that I have been blessed with. Oh how easy it is to pass by the ones who you call friend and not encourage and remind of your appreciation.
Let your friends and family know of your love.
