We talk a lot in recovery about courage and fear. Is it possible to feel courage but remain in fear over the little things in life?
Fearing God's Will
It is so easy to help and guide our brothers and sisters in the fellowship when they are in pain. "Trust your Higher Power; pray to know His will" are my words of wisdom. But what happens when the pain belongs to me? It is not always easy to follow my own advice.
Fear and Resentments
We may be uncomfortable about our first attempt at Steps 4 and 5 but we know these are a "must". Yet, I have found that some postpone these because they are in fear that their resentments will be with them forever and the steps will have been done in vain.
Fear is a four-letter word that many of us wish would disappear from our vocabularies and our lives. It can be a thing of the past but only when we can face it with honesty.
Father's Day! Remembering our dads and our relationship with them. These are personal thoughts of my dad. How do you feel about yours?
Faith Without Works
Faith in a Higher Power, in ourselves, and in others is a wonderful thing. Until we put that faith into action we will never know how alive and free we really can be.
Faith in Action
Women's meetings are so vital to recovery. We may not even share the same addiction but if we are in recovery we have an obligation to extend a hand to our sisters. Be a meeting maker from the ground up!
New Year's resolutions are passe but focusing on a meaningful mantra to live by is not. If you haven't thought about adding anything new to your repertoire of words to live by, try these....embrace life!
Easy Doesn't Always Do It
The phrase "easy does it" is familiar to everyone. But easy doesn´t do it when we pick and choose which steps we work. Recovery means working all 12 Steps, not just the easy ones!
DUI is Everyone's Problem
State laws are becoming stricter in the effort to control DUI's. They are made for anyone who drives while under the influence, even the "normal" drinker. Are these new laws too harsh or not harsh enough?
