A Faith Which Works

lania flowers August 007


“. . . provided we

placed humility first.

When we begin to do that,

we received the gift of faith,

a faith which works.

This faith is for you, too.”


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


Humility is easy, just put God and others before self.

Have faith, no fear, what kindness and love you give

will be returned a thousand fold.

If you don’t believe this, just ask a few million

happy, joyous and free recovering alcoholics

that live the program of A.A.

This faith works even better when we begin

to let go and let God and we become willing to admit that

God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

Today, say a prayer, the words that refresh faith.

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.
