"Finding God"

When I first started working for this company I had a supervisor who was one of the nicest guys I've ever met. Upon several conversations I guess he had some run-ins with the law and almost got some serious time. He said after that he started reading the bible and actually had a copy of his arrest warrant from that night in it to remind him of where he was and how long he had come. Thats all fine and dandy but then, years later this guy shot someone at work in the back. The other guy was walking away from him. Found God huh? And did god tell you to shoot him? I bring this up because we at work recently got a letter from another ex employee. She was a "work friend" of mine..pretty much because she was my age and we could talk about stuff that well the older people around here just wouldn't get. She was from what I understood a bit wild outside of work. Well she walked out on the job a while ago but she still had an account with us for some merchandise she purchased. Well she had missed like the last 4 payments so our collections dept. started calling her. Her mother told us she was in jail and was awaiting her sentencing. We looked her up in the city court website her is her list of charges: Possession of Marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of heroin with intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm. All I got to say to that is WOW. At this time she was with this married guy who she was "in love with". So we get a letter from her, she got 35 years, with 30 suspended, so shes only got to serve 5 years barring she doesn't fuck up in prison. In her letter she stated that she found god and that now she is devoting her life to him. Shes still with her love although she did not say how much time he got as he was involved as well. She said she is going to get her G.E.D. in prison and really turn her life around. Again this was gods way as she might have ended up dead. Now without me going of on a tangent of my beliefs as I'm sorry to say you're not going to find god. But why the fuck does everyone go and look for him when they get in trouble with the law??? You think god is going to change your sentencing? You think god is going to protect your ass from Nasty Nate in the pen? No hes not, and odds are when you come out you are going to be just as fucked up as you are now.

when people have no where to turn and no positive outlooks on their future/life in general, "finding god" is a way to start fresh and have new hope (on an otherwise shitty life). i'm all for people "finding god" as long as they really try to be better and don't shed their beliefs on other people.

didn't really know god was lost, but I am glad she found him. i was worried he'd never turn up

update on getting multiple people on this blog? or do i need to create my own?

i have some interesting thoughts on the mind that i would like to put on paper. if i made a blog i wouldn't update it often, so it would be more fun (for all of us) to add to this blog.
