  1. My soul rests with you, my Anamchara.

    Forgiveness; something I had never given much thought to and my experience is things that I have never given much thought to have never been done.
    No wonder I carried so many resentments!
    And resentments are our primary offenders; says so in the Big Book!

    Funny thing is I had the idea that alcohol was my primary offender and from that spring all kind of blame such as chores wives, circumstances, police officers, people bringing lawsuits etc.
    I felt all were contributing to this life I had and if you had my life, you’d drink too.

    WE FORGIVE . . .
    Often it was while working on this Step with our sponsors or spiritual advisers that we first felt truly able to forgive others, no matter how deeply we felt they had wronged us. Our moral inventory had persuaded us that all-round forgiveness was desirable, but it was only when we resolutely tackled Step Five that we inwardly knew we’d be able to receive forgiveness and give it, too.
    — TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 58
    What a great feeling forgiveness is! What a revelation about my emotional, psychological and spiritual nature. All it takes is willingness to forgive; God will do the rest.– – Daily Reflection

    Much as I tried to forgive out of my heart is just seemingly wouldn’t come so what did I do?
    It says I just need to pray for willingness and God will do the rest.
    I prayed for willingness.

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

  2. We talk about resentments and forgiveness a lot.
    And we stress the need for forgiveness, too, as we should.
    But just how do we forgive?
    Well, page 552 of our “basic textbook” shows one that’s worked for me.
    I’ve since read of others, but the method in the BB is simple and straightforward.
    I have used it successfully to break the stranglehold that my resentments against two people had on my spiritual development. So have others to whom I have showed it.
    So there it is…a spiritual tool, laid at our feet.
    Grateful for the Gift.

  3. Top of the morning family,
    sweet pic!
    – they see us rollen & strollen’
    – don’t be haten’
    Every day is a happy day when I choose to accept Divine Mercy in my life. When my hand stays in His hand, every day I’m on a happy vacation. Why not, didn’t our Heavenly Father promise to handle all of our responsibilities? That’s His job. My job/journey is doing His works. All I have to do is wake up, pray, trust God, and leave all the consequences to Him.

    Even though it’s Monday, it’s still TGIF: Today God is First.
