Big Book Quote

"If you persist, remarkable things will happen. When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when we put ourselves in Godís hands were better than anything we could have planned. Follow the dictates of a Higher Power and you will presently live in a new and wonderful world, no matter what your present circumstances!"

It was suggested early in my recovery to create a God box, and write down all my desires and wants and put them in the box. Leave the box on the shelf for 5 years. When I took it down and looked inside, many of those hopes had come true. The ones that didn't I realized I didn't want anymore. Amazing how God was taking care of all this. Who better to know what I needed than Him?
Sure makes living a lot easier when you finally figure this out!

Pipparina I was suggested to do the same. It is something to look back on.

To be a rock and not to roll.
