Humility First

walk around the block 042


We found many in A. A.
who once thought,
as we did,
that humility was another
name for weakness.

By their example
they showed us that
humility and intellect
could be compatible,
provided we placed
humility first.”


As Bill Sees It, p. 36
Twelve and Twelve, p. 30


If you think you are humble … you’re not.

Humility comes from working the first three steps,

there is a God and it is not you or me.

Humility comes from working steps six and seven,

when we let go and let God.

Humility comes from working step eleven,

seeking to increase our conscious contact

with our new found Higher Power.

Today, follow the example set by those

who have what you want,

those who have done the work.

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.
