Voluntary Reaching

November Roses 004


“We saw we needn’t always

be bludgeoned and beaten

into humility.

It could come quite

as much from our

voluntary reaching for it

as it could from

unremitting suffering.”


As Bill Sees It,   p. 211


The most amazing thing is to hear a sober person say

that humility gives them a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Humble is doing the next right thing,

doing the will of a loving Higher Power.

Having to say that you are sorry all of the time

is not being humble, as a matter of fact

by doing God’s will you will discover

that you rarely ever have to apologize

for errors of omission or commission.

Today, reach out to help another soul

and know that humility will find you.

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.
