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

You can make your life a triumph in spite of every adversity. Or you could make your life a mess in spite of every advantage. ~Ralph Marston

Today I am grateful...
  • that I am back to doing artwork for me. Finished a small painting last night (will post it later).
  • to not have to search sordid places for enough or more
  • that every day I concentrate on turning things over and letting them go in an attempt to express my gratitude to my Higher Power. I strive for trust.
  • for prayers for those who no longer come to meetings at Lambda. There are newcomers that will not know their experience, strength and hope.
  • for the strength and encouragement working the program of AA has given me

We in A.A. have the privilege of living two lives in one lifetime. One life of drunkenness, failure, and defeat. Then, through A.A., another life of sobriety, peace of mind, and usefulness. We who have recovered our sobriety are modern miracles. And we're living on borrowed time. Some of us might have been dead long ago. But we have been given another chance to live. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

Like your sister, I'd like to see a Paintin' Hun, too.

I love the 24 Hours a Day message.

Good for you about the painting. I know that the newcomers will have your E, S, and H.

I think we get more than 2 lifetimes. I think I am on my 5th or 6th. And really glad too.

Love the quote about the privilege of having lived two lives. When I was new in program it was a miracle to look at the world with new eyes. Love your posts and art.
