The Change….And It’s Not Menopause, LOL

God has done for me what I could not do for myself. Today I am capable of change and growth, I know that my life continues to change through the Program, and my willingness to “work” the Steps. Through persistence I have grown spiritually and now work to be of service to others. My Higher Power helped me to begin the process of change we call recovery, and I was able to stop using and abusing my body with alcohol and drugs. Amazing changes have taken place in my life, once I stepped over the threshold of the A.A. door. There is a positive spiritual behavior for every negative one. When I am unsure of what my reaction should be, I remember this and try to turn my behavior from negative to positive by practicing one of the Spiritual Principles. And now with an awesome suggestion from Tom S,  “come to a full and complete stop, look both directions, disengage the transmission, set the emergency brake, turn off the ignition, unfasten my seat belt, exit the vehicle and close the door. Then get on my knees and pray for stillness and peace.” 😎

  1. The people of faith don’t just think of saints as people who are extraordinarily holy. Sainthood, for us, has little to do with being extraordinarily good. In fact, the biggest barrier between you and sainthood is this: you’re still alive.

    Rather, every November 1st on All Saints’ Day we remember the Communion of Saints, which is simply every person who has died believing in God as we understand him’s love and grace.

    I feel a special connection, a communion with Bill W., Dr. Bob as well as each and every participant in our fellowship who hopefully are joining together in the Big Meeting in the Sky”.

  2. Nice to getup early enough to catch up on a little reading of your posts for the last few days. Be of service to others is the key for me. God bless and Amen.

  3. Top of the midday day family,

    A saint in not even close to being perfect, but one who is in a right relationship with Divine Mercy. Just ordinary folks/peoples who follow God- with all their heart. By living in a manner that honors and glorifies Divine Mercy, is a nice start point to saint hood.
    His ways aren’t my ways
    His plans aren’t my plans
    His purposes aren’t my purposes.
    His timing isn’t my timing.
    His plans are for our own goodness. Today, trust I must!
    By staying in His light, my faith is stretched beyond my comprehension. My faith is no longer weak and inexperienced.
    The goal of our lives isn’t death, but to live forever in His paradise.
    And that is His victory!
    Papa Francis, “To be a saint in not a privilege of a few, but a vocation for everyone.”

    It’s a good day to have a good day.
