A Spiritual Kindergarten

October Roses 042



“We are only operating

a spiritual kindergarten

in which people are enabled

to get over drinking

and find the grace to go on

living to better effect.”


As Bill Sees It,   p.  95



The Big Book makes no claims other than to say

that if you do what we have done

the compulsion and obsession to drink

will be removed.

The rest of the story, living a better life,

a life beyond your wildest dreams

are only promises that may happen

if you find the grace of a loving Higher Power.

A. A. will teach you the rudiments,

the basic A,B,C’s of making the changes

to recover from alcoholism,

the remainder of the education last a lifetime

and it is up to each individual as to what direction

and how that life should proceed.

Today is not Graduation Day,

it is Commencement Day,

so be ready and willing to change

and move on to a better life,

a life that is happy, joyous and free.

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.
