A Full And Thankful Heart

.

“I try hard to hold fast

to the truth that

a full and thankful heart

cannot entertain

great conceits.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 37

I wanted what I wanted and I wanted it

immediately.

The selfish, self-centered drunk has a problem

with distinguishing between wants and needs.

Today, most recovering alcoholics are able to be

thankful for what they have and to understand that

wishes and wants are a pathway back to a place

where they do not want to go.

Recovery is learning to be grateful.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

“11.Sought through prayer

and meditation to improve

our conscious contact with

God as we understood Him,

praying only for knowledge

of His will for us and

the power to carry that out.”

.

BB,   p. 59

Life is a journey for the recovering alcoholic and

the spiritual path is life’s most important aspect.

Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic

and since we can never be cured of the disease

constant contact with a power that relieved our suffering

must be maintained.

The blessing is that the more we maintain our contact

with a loving Higher Power

the stronger our spiritual foundation grows

and the more we can find serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
