Fear

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“Notice that

the word “fear”

is bracketed alongside

the difficulties with

Mr. Brown, Mrs. Jones,

the employer, and the wife.

This short word somehow

touches about every aspect

of our lives.”

.

BB p 67

Fear grows when we believe that we are not in control,

spirituality grows when we have the faith to believe

that a Higher Power is in control.

Today, repeat the beginning of the Serenity Prayer

as often as you need to:

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;  (Mother Nature and other people)
Courage to change the things I can; (Me and my attitude)
And wisdom to know the difference

and practice the steps in all of your affairs.

This suggestion diminishes fear

and leads one on the path to serenity,

peace of mind and a life worth living.

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.

.

.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.

Amen.
