Revealing More

"We finally came to the bottom. We did not have to be financially broke, although many of us were. But we were spiritually bankrupt. We had a soul-sickness, a revulsion against ourselves and against our way of living. Life had become imposssible for us. We had to end it all or do something about it."
Twenty-Four Hours a Day, June 9

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Bill W. and Dr. Bob

for a day off from stress-producing responsibilities

for awareness of things I never knew existed before I stopped drinking and got into recovery; things both in myself and in the outside world

that I am no longer spiritually empty; having instead a growing and evolving sense of a Higher Power and its importance in my life and of those lives around me

that today is JJ's 2-year sobriety birthday

THE MORE THAT IS REVEALED, THE MORE THAT IS REQUIRED OF US.
