Step Six Again

Pine Island Sunset 019



“6. Were entirely ready

to have God remove

all these defects

of character.”


BB p 59



More ego deflation.

If it hasn’t happened by now,

it will happen when we have completed Step Six.

God will have removed the obsession to drink.

What we could not do on our own,

what the family, doctors and clergy could not do,

God will do for us; if we have been honest,

open-minded and willing.

Since it worked for our drinking,

how about the rest of our lives.

Step Four listed our sins, Step Five shared them

with God and another soul, now in Step Six

it is time to be ready to have all of them removed.

Be realistic, it will not happen in a day,

always remember it is progress, not perfection,

so just keep on doing 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.
