Once Again, I Surrender!

I have surrendered to the reality of my life, and accepted responsibility for it. I believe that it is possible to stretch our wings and become whomever we choose to be. The disease of alcoholism does not condemn me for an eternity – I can change, I can grow and I can be a better person in sobriety than I ever was when I was in the throes of my drinking. Today, I have reconnected with a God of my understanding, who has shown me that I am capable to change, capable of growth, and capable of sharing my experience, strength and hope with others. Today, I know that my future is not limited by my past. My mistakes of yesterday can be stepping stones for tomorrow if I work to do something about them today. As our good friend Tom S generally concludes with……GRATEFUL FOR THE GIFT ❤

    God has all the time in the world. God has waited with hope for you, for what would grow within you when you were finally ready. -Br. Curtis Almquist

    Some people get mad as hell about proselytizers.
    That was the attitude Bill W had towards Ebby when he visited him So what a relief he had when it be said, “why don’t you just choose a God of your understanding?”

    That’s my feeling.

    I am so uplifted by my beliefs.

  2. Quietest of times in the earliest morning, just on the edge of first light.
    Darkness receding, the gloom of night stealing away and the first tentative bird announces life triumphantly present.
    My surrender time, when heart tenderly seeks Divine Union with its author and pledges fealty.
    Grateful for the gift.

  3. Top of the morning family,
    Love them beach/ocean pics.
    Upon awakening, ego awoke right next to me,(my will); and the world starts demanding my time…
    At what time do I seek His will?
    What human weakness is alienating me from His mercy?
    Is my relationship with God in the presence today?

    It’s a good day to take two rubber bands and be flexible day.
