The Program offers so many opportunities for improved behaviors and better attitudes about daily life, it really is to my advantage to utilize all that the Program offers. Fortunately, I do have a Higher Power in my life, and He helps me stay on track, especially when it comes to my sobriety, and the changes in my behavior. Not procrastinating is just one of those changes that are needed in this new life – so today is a good day to practice the positive traits of being accountable and reliable.

  1. My soul rests with you, my Anamchara.

    I went to Oliver Wingo’s funeral yesterday afternoon and enjoyed some precious moments with many dear friends in my long life.
    I also enjoyed many memories of association with Wingo, my special buddy.
    It was held in a country church which would in stretch mode accommodate seating for a couple of a hundred people yet there was overflow standing outside.
    The preacher commented, “What a testimony to Wingo’s life”.

    Wingo, according to the preacher said there were three things that were important in life; number 1 was to love God, the 2nd was to love family and the 3rd was to love one’s church.

    God of my understanding said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your might and the second is like unto it, love your neighbor as yourself”.

    Do these two plumb lines jibe?

    Thank you,God, for the plumb line of Paul’s ancient words.

    In our fellowship we call them guidelines.

    The point is God in his various manifestations gives us guidance if and only when we reach a level of maturity and humility sufficient to receive.

    I’m Harry, grateful 12th stepper. – Georgia, US of A.

    ps I have a round block of wood on which are inscribed the word TUIT.
    Get it?
    A round to it!

  2. Quiet, peaceful, grateful, connected to the All.
    Wanting nothing, having everything and finding it impossible to put any of it into words..
    Gently knowing we are surrounded in love, by love and through love.
    Used to be I’d wake up with a hangover dreading to hear what carnage I’d created the night before.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. I am accountable and reliable to do the right thing, but sometimes it takes time. My road of recovery is not a straight road. It has many turns, peaks, and valleys, but never a dead end. God has provided me the ability to make the right or wrong choice. Thank God for giving me the wisdom and ability to make the right choice.

  4. Top of the snowy Colorado morning family,
    Self posture: put off what you can today, for tomorrow I can put it off again. In earlier recovery, my well’er use to ask me, where in our manual is “into thinking or into tomorrow?” We both have a good laughing over my past and present….

    Procrastination also exists in my life as indecisiveness, agitation, and fear. These traits are the prices I pay to cover up an inner conflict. The distinctive bullseye is the danger of making a wrong decision. All this masks my defected character of Pride. My gluttony of self doesn’t likey/want to appear weak in the eyes of this world.
    This design for living in His light, has shown me some patience. A major part of my problems aren’t problems. By simply waiting, they just go away. It’s been revealed to me, if I splash my hands around in a bucket of water, the water splashes about. If I don’t place my hands in the bucket, the water “stays” still. hummm?!

    My prayer life, Divine Mercy, I’m available, do what You want with me. Show me what to do/next action item. It’s always the hard right over my easy peasy wrong timing. Self is always available in prayer. Today, I’m learning to be reliable/accountable outside of prayer.

    It’s a good day to enjoy this day.
