Back At It

I am still in a learning process, and gratefully still able to comprehend new ideas, and new ways of viewing and dealing with old problems. It doesn’t seem to matter how old I am, or how long I’ve been in recovery, new lessons appear, almost daily. I’m learning patience – with others, with life, with God. I am still learning to give unconditional love to others, and to be open to the love I receive from others. I am still learning that I, myself, am not important, but what I do can make a difference to others, if I am giving and trusting. I sincerely trust in the truth that I am right where I am supposed to be . . . that all will work out in God’s plan, if I can just Let Go and Let God. Just for today, I have today…and that is a BLESSING! Back to meetings and step work, a NEW LIFE!

    THE CHALLENGE OF FAILURE
    In God’s economy, nothing is wasted. Through failure, we
    learn a lesson in humility which is probably needed,
    painful though it is.
    AS BILL SEES IT, p. 31

    How thankful I am today, to know that all my past failures
    were necessary for me to be where I am now. Through
    much pain came experience and, in suffering, I became
    obedient. When I sought God, as I understand Him, He
    shared His treasured gifts. Through experience and
    obedience, growth started, followed by gratitude. Yes, then
    came peace of mind—living in and sharing sobriety

    I have a mechanical dresser top clock since 1970 which has made over 1,456,000,000 (that’s 1 billion, 456 million) tick-tocks and 3,034,080 dongs. She has began stopping unexpectedly causing me to have to take the clock works out for cleaning and re-lubrication which I have done a few times over the last 45 years resulting in renewed tick-tocking and happy donging on the hour and half-hour. You
    I don’t mind doing this necessary maintenance and renewal on this old friend just as I’m sure God in his enduring grace and mercy doesn’t mind doing for me – and you.

    A short time friend of mine for the last few years in cyber land recently had a slip in her personal encounter with alcoholism and we in this community are wholeheartedly welcomed me and her back into our midst and giving her all the encouragement we can muster.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted 12th stepper.

  2. This morning as i sit on our porch all snowed in from the years biggest storm I again ponder why a while back Bonnie said, ” apology accepted” when I cant imagine intentionally hurting my friend of some years now. I do know I get off topic everytime a squirrel goes by which is like everyday but I looked back a couple of weks shares and dint see anything directed at her however i am sorry I often get off topic and dont take the time everyday to thank for the lead share which is always very thoughtfully wrote out. So here’s my apology again, ” sorry Bonster if I hurt you and thank you for taking charge where we all need you so very much” God bless. I’d like to be more specific but still not sure what i did or didnt do.

  3. Top of the morning family,
    We have the choice to focus on the promises of Divine Mercy or to focus on the problems of our lives. Our problems will be with us until our death. This big blue marble will never run out of problems. His promises, His truth will continue throughout eternity. Today, my hunger must be on Him; and not focus on my problems and all the ways that things can go wrong.
    Divine Mercy keeps His promises.
    Today is a good day to enjoy his warmth.
