IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

07.15.07

We all need time alone. Then we can get to know our Higher Power better too. When we were using chemicals, we were afraid of being alone. We didn't want to think too much. So we got high.
Today I am grateful...
  • that Mary L A has joined our recovery blogging community
  • for the afternoon of art with Matt, then dinner afterwards
  • to have made great progress on a commission piece that is not in my usual style (will post a picture after it's finished)
  • to have life at my disposal after a lifetime of keeping my door closed
  • that today I get to see Boston at the Came to Believe meeting, have breakfast, paint some more, nap and spend the evening with the guys. Today I consider myself lucky.

Now we know we're never totally alone. Our Higher Power is with us. We can relax. We can rest. We can think, read, and meditate. We can our own best friend. ~Quotes from Keep It Simple

dave, always cracks me up.

i am so impressed that you've been putting out so much work. maybe it's always been like that and you are just talking about it more?

as a dabbling painter, i envy your passion.
