Doing it my way

God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him, "Lord, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what you did in the 'beginning'."
"Oh, is that so? Tell me..." replies God.
"Well, " says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of You and breathe life into it, thus creating man. "
"Well, that's interesting . Show Me."
So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil.

"Oh no, no, no..." interrupts God, "Get your own dirt."


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am happy using God's dirt and everything else he created

for the large amounts of water He has sent us this week; personally, I think we've had enough to last until next Tuesday

that I am flexible enough to change plans at the last minute and not go crazy

for the AA story I heard yesterday -- someone whose life has been totally opposite from mine yet we ended up at the same place and with the same feelings

for sponsee meetings and phone calls

that I'm meeting with my sponsor at 6:30am today - our new time

the Astros re-signed Roger Clemens (I sit corrected because I was sure he'd sign with JJ's boys in Boston)

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.

loved the story... love God's dirt... glad you didn't get washed down a bayou down there!! And I can so relate to the quote, about having things now that were once wished for. It seems that this alcoholic sometimes finds it impossible to just be satisfied at times. Those are the times I find myself furthest from HP.
