We Were Reborn

Lowes flowers 4-09 015

“As we felt new power flow in,

as we enjoyed peace of mind,

as we discovered we could

face life successfully,

as we became conscious

of His presence,

we began to lose our fear

of today, tomorrow

or the hereafter.

We were reborn.”


~ BB p 63


Panic time,

where is the next drink coming from,

do I have the money to buy the booze,

what story did I tell the boss, the family, the wife.

As we turned our lives over to a Power

greater than ourselves and we began to clear

the wreckage of the past

our lives began to change for the better

and the panic moments stopped.

Today, with a faith in the Higher Power

of my understanding I no longer fear life

and I enjoy serenity and peace of mind.

Today, don’t panic, pray.

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.
