The Key Word is *CONTINUE*

senior biker's bar

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that we read some power writing yesterday morning from pages 84-88 of the Big Book.

... we continue to take personal inventory and continue to set right any new mistakes
... it should continue for a lifetime.
... continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment and fear.
... we turn our thoughts to someone we can help.
... love and tolerance is our code.
... we have ceased fighting anything or anyone.
... the problem has been removed.
... we are not cured of alcoholism.
... we have a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.

These ideas are covered in 3 paragraphs. Amazing.

The Promised Land always lies on the other side of a Wilderness.
- Havelock Ellis

I think it's fabulous when old people are willing to go to any length. The fact that they are all parked correctly is impressive for "bar parking".

The wilderness I went through was worth it because the promised land is glorious!

Love and tolerance, cessation of fighting, setting right any new mistakes--it is a lifetime journey for sure. Thanks Dave.
