Sometimes...

(blogger will not let me post a photo today - sorry)

It is nice to find out you are wrong.

Yesterday I wrote my post about the proliferation of "self-esteem" and "feel-good" literature preying on AA members as their target market. And honestly, a lot of meetings seem to center around this kind of psycho-babble.

But after I wrote this, I got in my car and drove to my usual 6:30 a.m. meeting. The meeting I really go to out of convenience, not out of any great love any more. And yesterday morning I was absolutely blown away by the message of recovery from alcoholism in that room. It was all centered on the steps and on God.

My faith in mankind is restored for another day.

One day at a time.

I plan on staying sober again today and I hope you all will join me, OK?

I remain in awe of how God uses us imperfect vessels to carry his perfect message.

Blessings and aloha...

I'm with ya MC... another sober day for me as well...

your post the other day got me thinking... it's not a good thing, that we revel in the fact that we had "one of those really good solid AA meetings" the other day. Those ought to be the rule, not the exception... good point, we've strayed and gotten all watered down.

Faith. That's what it's all about. Came to believe.
