Good morning. Sometimes my sinuses like to go crazy depending on the nutso weather this time of year. Not sick. . . it isn't a cold. It is just me. And on these morning there is not enough coffee in the world to make my snot sogged brain come alive. LOL!

oh, thank you for your support, it means a lot, I was afraid that of negative judgment and it looks that my fears were just that fears.
I find this and though it may be good idea to share today with all of you






Faith is the bird that sings when the dawn is still dark.


—Rabindranath Tagore


There may be many things in our lives that seem unsure or doubtful. Whatever our hope or personal need today, we are not given the knowledge that tells us how things will turn out. In the predawn darkness we don't know how the day will unfold. Sometimes faith is simply a matter of continuing with our program in the midst of our doubt. Then we can be certain that whatever direction events take, whatever pain or trial we must deal with, we will still have ourselves because we have been faithful today.

Ultimately, it is when we have ourselves and our integrity that we are on the recovery path. It is our faith that keeps us there regardless of the setbacks and personal moments of darkness we each must meet.

I will be faithful to my program, even in the darkest moment of doubt or fear, and it will carry me through.



Prayer for the Day


I pray that I may have such trust in God today that I will not fear anything too greatly. I pray that I may have assurance that God will take care of me in the long run.

I will love to say that I wrote this but the true is not, my eloquence is very low almost none, but went I read this I know they help me, and I thought of you guys/gals and that you may like too.

24 more for this inactive alcoholic/addict.
