JOYFUL DISCOVERIES

<i>We realize we know only a little. God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.</i>
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 164

Sobriety is a journey of joyful discovery. Each day brings new experience, awareness, greater hope, deeper faith, broader tolerance. I must maintain these attributes or I will have nothing to pass on.
Great events for this recovering alcoholic are the normal everyday joys found in being able to live another day in God’s grace.

<h2><b><u>Big Book Quote</u></b></h2>

<i>”Reminding ourselves that we have decided to go to any lengths to find a spiritual experience, we ask that we be given strength and direction to do the right thing, no matter what the personal consequences may be.”</i>

~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, Into Action, pg. 79~
<h2><b><u>Keep It Simple</u></b></h2>

<i>I noticed my hopelessness was because I had lost my freedom of choice.<i>—AA member

By doing a Fourth Step, we start to see ourselves more clearly. We see how we’ve acted against ourselves. Soon, we hear a little voice inside telling us to stop before we act. “Are you sure you want to say or do that?” the little voice asks. Then we make a choice: we do something the same old way, or we try a new way. One part of us will always want to do things the old, sick way. This is natural. But we’re getting stronger every day. Our spirit wants to learn new ways so we can be honest and loving. Sometimes we don’t know how. But we still have a choice. We can ask for help.

Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me listen to the little voice inside that helps me see that I have choices.

Action for the Day:
Today, I’ll make a choice between old ways and new ways of acting. I will call my sponsor this evening to talk about my choices.

<h2><b><u>Daily Horoscope – Cancer</u></b></h2>

You can rely on your friends and coworkers to support your efforts today. Magically, people seem to show up with the right skill or piece of information just as you need it. Thankfully, the Moon’s receptivity in your 11th House of Networks enables your actions to resonate within your larger group or community. Nevertheless, you might worry that trouble is brewing beneath the surface. There is no reason to be shy; ask questions to bring unspoken feelings out into the open. Author Terry Pratchett wrote, “The best research you can do is to talk to people.”
