AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
When we see a man sinking into the mire that is alcoholism, we give him first aid and place what we have at his disposal. For his sake, we do recount and almost relive the horrors of our past. But those of us who have tried to shoulder the entire burden and trouble of others find we are soon overcome by them. – Pg.132 – The Family Afterward
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
It doesn’t cost a lot of money for us to recover. It cost a lot of time. We have to be diligent and program consciousness from this hour to the next, every hour for the rest of our lives. We ‘have’ to do it, until we ‘want’ to do it.
I embrace our program in gratitude.
A Still Small Voice
I will have faith. I will follow that still small voice within me. When I have doubts, which of course I will have, I will reach down within myself and pull up something that I thought wasn’t even there, I’ll pull up faith that things will be all right. Whether or not things are going just the way I want them to, I’ll have faith that they will somehow right themselves in the end. It will work out, or it won’t work out, but still, all will be OK. I will give myself the gift of faith.
My faith sustains me.

‘For a time we are living inside a scream where there seems to be no exit, only echoes. The small cares that seemed so important yesterday seem like nothing, and our daily concerns become petty and irrelevant. When we finally reclaim ourselves, as we ultimately do, we are changed.’ -Kent Nerburn, Simple Truths
Cooperating with God is the easier softer way.
