WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS...PRAY
Why not BEFORE all else fails?
Probably the following--lost password--will be #70 on my list of 48 Stupid Things I've Done in Sobriety:
Omigosh, I had written several blogs ahead (Alcoholic? Me?) in a database program, and, naturally I put a password on the whole thing. That was to 'protect' all of this ultra-sensitive, top-level, eyes-only trash springing from my mind. All these highly-secret documents would have, in a matter of a few days, of course, appeared on "steveroni" for the whole world to read (Ha!)...
Bottom line: I forgot the new password, it was just something I had read at that moment--a long word--with the spelling changed a bit. Woe is me, my whole life was recorded in that ddb file, which I began in 1996.
Oh well! Ya win some, ya lose some. Know when to hold, when to fold.
Does anyone remember to whom we pray to "find" a lost password. Is it st Anthony? As usual, when I need help, I exhaust all earthly possibilities, then, as a last resort, I pray for whatever. "When all else fails...pray". What a mantra! When, if I had prayed to begin, I'd have saved all that time and anxiety.
Never weary in prayer. When one day man sees how marvelously his prayer has been answered, then he will deeply, so deeply, regret that he prayed so little.

So that's it for today, so far--it's only 4:30AM here in Naples. Lots more awaits. Thank you, God! Let us all LIVE AND LOVE AS FULLY AS WE CAN...WITH GREAT JOY!
