Big Book Quote
“We found that as soon as we were able to lay aside prejudice and express even a willingness to believe in a Power greater than ourselves, we commenced to get results, even though it was impossible for any of us to fully define or comprehend that Power, which is God.”
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, We Agnostics, pg. 46~
Keep It Simple
If you would be loved, love and be lovable.—Benjamin Franklin
We all want to be loved. and no matter how much we’re loved, we always want more. How can we be lovable? What does the mean? Should we try to be perfect? Should we act cute and helpless? No, being lovable means that we act ourselves. We let others get to know us. When others love us, we enjoy it. We tell them. We let them know that their love isn’t wasted on us, that it’s important to us. We are lovable, and we are loved!
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me accept the love of others today. Help me be lovable.
Action for the Day:
Today, I’ll list all the little things others do that show that they care for me.
Daily Horoscope – Cancer
Although you prefer the familiarity of your daily routine, you might feel a sudden urge to break free from your safe and secure world. However, it’s not likely that you’ll quit your job and head overseas today, even if you’re struck with a seemingly incurable case of wanderlust. Follow your instincts to widen your horizons by learning about a subject that’s outside your regular sphere of reference. Attorney Gerry Spence wrote, “I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.”
