A CLEAN SWEEP






I LOVE Sunday. (Well, I love EVERY day! That's the TRUTH!)

This morning is again AA meeting time, 7 AM.

Choir Rehearsal

Sing at 1100 mass

Visit daughter in treatment (only on Sundays).

Another AA meeting @ 1730

Meet with sponsee after meeting...hopefully.

Call a friend.

The day is over, the week is finished. Enough!  Amen!

This coming week is already scheduled as busy.  For me it is really exciting!  For years I have been wondering what surprises God has in store for me, who is there to meet?  Who might I help?  Who might help ME? I know God will use me somehow. Will He let me see that?  It does not matter,


Simply having witnessed now how it works lets me know that Great Things will be happening.
 

Alcoholics Anonymous has done that for me...given me back a life, my life, and added many years to what might well have been.


OKAY, It is time for a joke...to end this week of seriousness:

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married..

One broom was, of course, the bride broom, the other the groom broom.

The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom, 'I think I am going to have a little whisk broom!'

'IMPOSSIBLE !' said the groom broom.

'Why...we haven't even SWEPT together!'

And Peeps, One thing I believe which always
was, is, and shall be, forever and ever is LOVE.
Sort of like an attribute of God, Hmmmmm?

It leads me to PEACE!
(Those Green Pastures by the Still Waters?)

May we all enjoy both Love and Peace...and Sobriety.
Today!

Steve, Thanks for the meaningful comment you left yesterday. I was writing about my dog and my adult kids, or my kids and my dog. It truly is all about Love. I am so happy that your life is exciting these days. I know you worked hard to get there and I admire you for it. Enjoy the day!

I'm always going to remember you. You're one of a kind. So glad you aren't drinking away the days.

Gaia said...

Steve you have a great sense of humour. Guess that's one way we heal, to learn to laugh at ourselves too. Bless you and loved ones.

Thank you for your comments to me, and I look forward to learning more about you and your Mrs. : ) I have to take a day and catch up on posts from the beginning. I'm glad you had a good visit with your daughter. I love your enthusiasm for not knowing, but being open to how God wants to use you each day! Awesome way to start the day!

This post was very informative. Thank for the info and as a recovering addict I found it very helpful. Getting a drug and alcohol intervention can be really hard but, make sure you work with a center that is caring and supportive.
