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

If you aren't surrounded by people who inspire you, I recommend you find some. It's the only way to fly. ~David N

Today I am grateful…

  • that sometimes my thoughts try to get the best of me. They try really hard. Really, really hard—but my Higher Power tries harder to keep me sane.
  • for my favorite AA axiom – This Too Shall Pass
  • that today I can walk a path of faith
  • that if I trip I have tools to help me right myself, and if that fails I can turn to another alcoholic, my Higher Power, or just wait

The way of faith is of course not confined to A.A. It is the way for everybody who wants to really live. But many people can go through life without much of it. Many are doing so, to their own sorrow. The world is full of lack of faith. Many people have lost confidence in any meaning in the universe. Many are wondering if it has any meaning at all. Many are at loose ends. Life has no goal for many. They are strangers in the land. They are not at home. But for us in A.A. the way of faith is the way of life. We have proved by our past lives that we could not live without it. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day
