There doesn’t seem to be any shortage of things to do in my life. And while I enjoy the fact that I have things to do, I also need some “rest” time, as my energy level is not what it used to be.

So – when I stop and look at my life, I am blessed to say that I do have something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for….I love being able to write to you each day and the bottom line is that I love my life – everyday, in every way. I love the fact that I can put my skills to work in the Program. My life is useful, full of people I love and who love me! What more could I ever need????? GRATEFUL!

  1. A Morning Resolve

    I will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.

    In particular I will try to be faithful in those habits of prayer, work, study, physical exercise, eating, and sleep which I believe the Holy Spirit has shown me to be right.

    And as I cannot in my own strength do this, nor even with a hope of success attempt it, I look to thee, O Lord God my Father, in Jesus my Savior, and ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit.( God of my understanding) Amen.

  2. Top of the morning family,
    – Do I know me?
    – Do I realize Who God is?
    Essential for me is first things first. Am I listening, am I learning, and I interacting with the One who created me?
    – Am I leaning on my own understanding? Or will self allow Divine Mercy to do for me what I can’t do for myself. He created the universe; seems so logically to direct my little journey…
    It’s a good day for breakfast burritos.

  3. Oh dear Sister, thank you for sharing your recovery thoughts. I am reminded by your words that I do better when I am involved. A sense of purpose and gratitude gives me a more peaceful path to follow.
    I attended my home group mtg last eve , it is a step study and we are on step I. When reading out of Drs Opinion the words about drinking made me grateful I do not need to drink to cover up my emotional insecurities. Thanks again kt
