A Novel Idea



“My friend suggested

what then seemed

a novel idea.

He said,

Why don’t you choose

your own conception

of God?”


BB p 12


It may have not been a new idea to the world

but it was a revelation for Bill.

When most of the fellowship read it for the first time,

seeing Step 3, it was really novel for us too,

” your own conception of God.”

Most drunks do not like being told what they should

or must believe, therefore, giving every alcoholic

the option to believe as he wants to concerning his Higher Power,

we are allowing the pathway to Spirituality,

the main route for recovery,

to be placed in each individuals control.

Today, let your concept of  a Higher Power keep you sober.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
