my spiritual condition,
by giving away
what has been so freely
given to me,
I am granted
a daily reprieve.”
Daily Reflections p 247
The best spiritual condition is achieved when
the individual places doing the will of a loving
Higher Power above their own selfish concerns.
For the recovering alcoholic who has quality sobriety
the reprieve from the compulsion and obsession to drink
is a blessing that is atop their nightly gratitude list.
By working the Twelve Steps of A. A. the alcoholic
is given the opportunity to clear the wreckage of the past,
to help another alcoholic and eventually find out how
to maintain their own spiritual condition.
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.
