LETTER FROM PRISON

   THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WRITING TO ME. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW GREAT IT WAS TO RECEIVE YOUR LETTER. I AM GRATEFUL TO
TO HEAR FROM YOU.
   JUST RECENTLY I GAVE MY LIFE TO GOD, I’VE DONE IT MANY TIMES BEFORE IN THE PAST, BUT RIGHT AWAY I’D BE BACK TO MY OLD SELFISH WAYS. THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT, I’VE NEVER FELT THIS WAY BEFORE. I WANT TO PLEASE THE LORD, I WANT TO SERVE HIM, I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE FOR HIM. ON JANUARY 9,2010
I GAVE MY LIFE TO GOD, AND I’VE NEVER BEEN SO SURE OF ANYTHIING. THIS TIME IS FOREVER!
  I AM 32 YEARS OLD, BORN AND RAISED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. I DON’T GET MUCH MAIL, PRETTY MUCH NONE AT ALL. I’M LUCKY IF I RECEIVE 3 OR 4 LETTERS A YEAR FROM MY MOM. SHE’S VERY DISTANT. IT MAKES ME SAD THAT NOBODY OUT THERE CARES ABOUT ME. I ADMIT THOUGH THAT I’VE EARNED BEING TREATED THIS WAY. YOU SEE, SINCE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, I’VE BEEN IN AND OUT OF JAIL. MY FAMILY HAS GIVEN UP ON ME, AND I DON’T BLAME THEM. I NEVER DID ANYTHING RIGHT. ALL MY LIFE, I LIVED LIKE THE WORLD OWED ME SOMETHING. BUT, I’M A NEW MAN NOW, AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO A BRIGHT FUTURE. I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ME AND I’M READY TO FULFILL IT.
   I CONSIDER IT A BLESSING THAT I’VE BEEN IN PRISON FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS, BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT IT FINALLY TOOK FOR ME TO GROW UP. IF I CONTINUED DOWN THE PATH I WAS ON, I’D BE DEAD RIGHT NOW. AND WORSE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER GIVEN MY LIFE OVER TO THE LORD.
                           SINCERELY;
                           A BROTHER
