A Wholesale Miracle

.

“Since the

original Forward

to this book was

written in 1939,

a wholesale miracle

has taken place.”

.

Big Book,    p. xv   3rd Edition

Forward to the Second Edition

.

.

And every day that a member of A. A.

continues to stay sober

the miracles never cease to stop.

It is not A. A. that keeps one sober,

it is a loving Higher Power that

gets one sober and keeps one sober,

A. A. is just the suggested steps

to finding that spiritual path.

Today,  don’t drink , go to a meeting,

help another alcoholic and remember to thank

the God of your understanding

for all of the miracles.

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.

First The Pain

.

” … pain was the touchstone

of all spiritual progress …

for we know that

the pains of drinking

had to come before sobriety,

and emotional turmoil

before serenity.”

.

Twelve and Twelve,   pp. 93 & 94

.

Why do so many show up in the rooms of A.A. ,

most will tell you that they were sick and tired

of being sick and tired.

When the pain of the guilt and shame is sufficient,

those that truly seek to understand their lot

will be blessed if they can find the fellowship

and following their suggestions,

find a way that may not be easier and softer

but is definitely more rewarding.

What keeps them sober,

not wanting to return to the pain,

to be able to continue the spiritual path

that allows them to enjoy a life

filled with 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,
