Stained-glass Windows



“People are like stained-glass windows.

They sparkle and shine

when the sun is out,

but when the darkness sets in,

their true beauty is revealed

only if there is a light from within.”


~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross


A wise man in AA told me that inside the chest of every soul

there is a God Hole, and in that God Hole there is a candle.

For those who drink, the alcohol is trying it’s best

to douse out that candle.

In recovery, the candle begins to grow brighter

and the more we do for others the brighter the candle glows.

Those souls in recovery who have what I want glow the brightest

and even in the darkest of hours,

the stained glass windows of their God Hole

shows the way to recovery for any who wish to follow.

Today, be the light.

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.
