My Spiritual Condition

lanai 022


“By maintaining

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.
