Pre-Dawn Drive to the Gym

This morning I woke up early enough to get to the gym before going to the 6:30 meeting and then go to breakfast with the women of the group.  What a morning!

Last night I went to church with the woman who has asked me to be her sponsor for confirmation.  I had no idea I was going to be standing in the front of the church, and laying hands on and praying for all of the elect.  It was a very powerful experience.  It took a lot of prayer to get over myself and think about them instead of worrying about ME!  Standing in front of the church!  

I am grateful to be sober.  I am grateful to be this person who God has taken the time to make.

That fear sneaks up on us sometimes!

I have, in my mind's eye, the picture of God's hand on your shoulder as you place your hand on another.

Good for you MC. God will speak through you when we let him.
