Riding

Riding a bike is one of my favorite things in the world. During a beautiful sunrise ride in the fleeting coolness of a summer morning, I feel the nearness of my Creator.

And now I am off to church for an hour of silent prayer. Then a full day of work. Then an AA meeting. Then I get to come home and go to bed and thank God for another sober day.

"We finally saw that faith in some kind of God was part of our make-up. Sometimes we had to search persistently, but He was there. He was as much a fact as we were. We found the Great Reality deep down within us." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 55

I am still looking for some slutty grandmothers reading the Big Book getting pedicures!

Today I am grateful for the Great Reality. And you.

A full day of service.

I am now wondering why Scott and Mike are up this early. Or is it this late?
