‘the boys and the men’

Pine Island 3 mos after fire 051


“So the difference between

‘the boys and the men’

is the difference between

striving for a

self-determined objective

and for the perfect objective

which is of God.”


~ Twelve and Twelve,   p. 68


The boys (the drunk) is concerned with self,

‘it is all about me.’

The men, those who seek sobriety,

become concerned with doing God’s will,

of being service to others.

Today, grow up, think of others,

concern yourself with doing the next right thing,

seek to do the will of God.

If you do not know what God’s will is for you

feel free to take one or more from my favorite list:

be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving and compassionate,

be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

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.
