Editor, the Advocate:
For me, 2017 was a year of learning a lesson.
July 19 was a day of not thinking positive or thinking about consequences. A call to the authorities was the beginning of a new journey.
District Attorney Steve Tyler got my attention and held me responsible for my actions. It was not what I liked at the time, but it was the best thing for me and mine.
Sometimes we do not measure our wrong actions; however, we are under an earthly law. We also have our heavenly law for which one day our actions will be applied to us when Jesus comes back for us.
In the meantime, we have to obey and try to do our best - so we don't have to go through painful consequences.
Shame is a part of healing and a sign of wanting to do better.
Would I make the same mistake again? With prayer and thinking back on my consequences, absolutely not.
If I ever forget that I am solely responsible for my own actions, there will be someone waiting for me to show me what is next to come.
In all this I thank God and Mr. Tyler for having so much grace for me - because it could have been worse. But that does not mean there will be a second soft chance.
My change has made my life way better - and my loved one's life, too.
Thank you Steve Tyler for committing to protect our community. God bless you always.
