The Disbeliever

Pine Island 3 mos after fire 023

.

“They said God made

these things possible,

and we only smiled.

We had seen

spiritual release,

but liked to tell ourselves

it wasn’t true.”

.

BB,   p. 55

.

The newcomer, the agnostic

and the doubting Thomas’s of this world

are usually skeptical when they first encounter

the stories of alcoholics who have stopped drinking

because they had a spiritual experience.

Time, patience, honesty, willingness and following

a few suggestions will lead the soul who truly seeks

relief from the compulsion and obsession to drink

to a point where they will realize

that God is doing for them

what they could no do for themselves.

This is the true spiritual experience.

Miracles do happen.

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.
