    I thought my dad was doing good since he has sold his business (Midwest Utility Trenching Services) and I thought he was going to be doing better. But now, I am realizing that my father is going into some depression. The way I figured that was that he doesnt seem to want to do much and he is starting to pick up the booze and coke a bit. I am really starting to get worried about him and I am doing my best in trying to take him fishing. But he still doesnt want to go! So what I am asking from the BOC is that you all give my father a prayer request so that he may get over his depression and start his life over again. Thank you BOC!

    Tony,
    I don't know all the details and don't need to because my GOD knows our innermost thoughts and desires. He knows what's bothering your Dad and knows what to do about it.
    Prayer is a powerful weapon but LOVE is even stronger. We, on the BOC, will continue to pray for you and your Dad. You continue to LOVE him, even when he does things you don't understand or approve of.
    GOD will answer our prayers and you will have your Dad back. I sincerely believe in the power of GOD. HE loves us all and wants only good for us all.
    Sometimes SATAN is allowed to claim small victories but GOD is in control of ALL.
    God Bless!!

    Prayers from Greenville, SC. My father was depressed, too, Tony - and he also drank. But he did like to go fishing with me, which is something that I will always remember. Do your best to spend time with your dad in any way possible. Even though he's living with his family, he's probably feeling very lonely, lost, and misunderstood. Let him know that you love him, and that you're willing to talk with and listen to him whenever he needs.

    Tony, may faith be with you and your dad. Have you tried getting him interested in the BOC...? Collectively, I'd be willing to bet we could steer him down a straight and narrow path...:big_smile:
