Life I love you, all is groovy.
~ Paul Simon ~
Working the Twelve Steps is more than recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction. It’s also about how to enjoy life.
Our illness pulled us toward death. Our spirits were dying, and maybe our bodies were dying. Now our spirits are coming to life. We feel more alive than ever before. Our feelings are coming alive. We feel hope and faith, love, and joy, and even hurt and fear. We notice the sunshine as well as the clouds. We know life needs both sunshine and rain, both joy and pain. We are alive!
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me let go of my fears and enjoy life. I haven’t always known how to enjoy life, but You can teach me. All life is from You, so teach me to be free in Your light and love.
Action for the Day:
Right now, I can think of at least three things in life that make me feel like sunshine. What are they?
