Arrow Twenty-Four Hours A Day for 5/13/13

*~*~*~*^TwentyFourHoursADay^*~*~*~*

A.A. Thought for the Day
In A.A. we find fellowship and release and strength. And having found these things, the real reasons for our drinking are taken away. Then drinking has no more justification in our minds. We no longer need to fight against drink. Drink just naturally leaves us. At first, we are sorry that we can't drink, but we get so that we are glad that we don't have to drink. Am I glad that I don't have to drink?

Meditation for the Day

Try never to judge. The human mind is so delicate and so complex that only its Maker can know it wholly. Each mind is so different, actuated by such different motives, controlled by such different circumstances, influenced by such different sufferings, you cannot know all the influences that have gone to make up a personality. Therefore, it is impossible for you to judge wholly that personality. But God knows that person wholly and He can change it. Leave to God the unraveling of the puzzles of personality. And leave it to God to teach you the proper understanding.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may not judge other people. I pray that I may be certain that God can set right what is wrong in every personality.

Your so very welcome and thank you for responding. I have been late a few times lately so I want to thank V for taking up the slack.
Today I have 9 yrs so I wanted to celebrate it with all of you.

Congratulations!!! That's awesome, with 9 years you aren't exactly a newby!! I'm in the Central time zone, so I'm always a bit ahead of ya'll!! I appreciate what you do for SE, I'm in early sobriety and need lots of inspiration.

I hope you have a great birthday, doing the things you love with the people you love!!

Congrats on 9 years, Newby. That is awesome.

As far as the TFTD - I sure am glad I don't have to drink today. I have also been experiencing difficulty with judging other people unfairly. I know it is wrong, and am working through it with my sponsor and getting all sorts of nudges in the right direction with readings like this.

Congrats Newby,
And thank you so much for taking the time to post the readings. Today's reading is something I could actually do with reading everyday.

I don't mean to pry but how is your health? I wonder about you a lot and how it's going.

Love
CaiHong
