Flatlanders is…

An offer from God… a pivotal choice

The right path in the midst of darkness
A place of comfort… mingled with pain
A house full of laughter
with moments of bursting anger… mostly my own
It is where many friendships have been formed
as well as the occasional enemy… to chisel my character
I have found acceptance and forgiveness here
along with a growing sense of my own contentment and purpose
I have faced some of my worst fears during my time at Flats
and it is the place where my sobriety has finally taken root
which literally means the world to me
Of course it’s not always easy living here
and there have been many difficult times over the years
but my soul has been truly enriched by this place I call home
