A Clear Light

.

A clear light

seems to fall upon us all-

when we open our eyes.

Since our blindness is

caused by our own defects,

we must first deeply realize

what they are.”

The day the excuses died.

A.A. suggested that I honestly seek out

my defects of character  and stop blaming others

for all of my problems.

When, with an open mind, I became willing

to change those things that I could change,

me and my attitude, the light bulb

inside that foggy brain finally turned on.

Working the steps, following the suggestions,

life in the fellowship has become a clear light

that shines brightly on the spiritual principles,

the pathway to 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.

The Constant Effort

Dec 1 pansies 008

“To these problems,

there are certainly

no pat answers.

But part of the answer

surely lies in

the constant effort

to practice all

of A.A.’s Twelve Steps.”

Many a drunk shows up in the rooms with additional baggage,

be it family, legal, mental, physical, other addictions,

or whatever the problem may be,

if one does not stay sober, non of the other problems

are going to go away.

The constant effort to work the steps, stay sober

and do the next right thing usually helps to resolve

any additional issues that the recovering alcoholic

may encounter.

Today, stay sober, one step at a time,

one problem at a time.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
