“Someone who knew
what he was talking about
once remarked that pain
was the touchstone of all
How heartily we can
agree with him….”
Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions pp 93 – 94
The emotional pain, the guilt and the shame
one must endure when the alcoholic honestly
reviews their lives, list their short comings and
makes a moral inventory of all of the wrongs
committed while under the influence
of the disease of alcoholism.
But, however, the program is not about living in the past,
it is about clearing the wreckage and then ,
and more importantly, beginning to live a life that
does the will of a loving Higher Power,
that does the next right thing.
Today, keep your side of the street clean
and enjoy the painless spiritual path.
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.
