A little time…

On vacation this week and getting some time to just be. This is as important as the times I spend actively pursuing recovery in journaling, meeting with folks, reading and listening to teachings on different subjects. Sometimes, just letting the presence of God descend into places that we don’t fully open up without the relaxing… Continue reading A little time…

The 11th or Thy Will be Done

Life has been a bit up and down lately, but I have been drawn back to step 11 tonight, so that is where we will land with tonight’s entry. “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry… Continue reading The 11th or Thy Will be Done

Fighting for purpose

Earlier, we looked at prayer and God's purpose. And that prayer is meant to be a 2-way conversation between us and God. As we dig more in to what that all means, and spend some more time listening during prayer, sometimes we'll wonder what we're to be doing with our lives. I know I do.… Continue reading Fighting for purpose

Personal Prayer

Boy, the character flaws are coming fast and furious as I enter the fourth year of recovery. If they were bricks to the head, I would be getting a CAT scan for the resulting concussion. Attending group tonight, and as usual, really enjoyed the music (guest musician) and the teaching by one of our group… Continue reading Personal Prayer

Tucking In…

Ah, the day after Christmas. It's chilly, but not raining, so grateful for that. Sorry for the extended break in this blog, but I have literally not had a moment's peace in several days to collect my thoughts, and I didn't want to just send out recycled meh, and call it a happy holi-daze rerun.… Continue reading Tucking In…

Time takes time…

Still cold. Like, really cold. But sunny too, and that's really nice. I like that a lot more than gray, gray, gray. 😎 Spent time with a friend today, and got to share some of my progress. I found that I am quite passionate about my healing and my journey. Our conversation was about a… Continue reading Time takes time…

Web of grace…

Today was an odd weather day...cold, a tiny patch of blue sky, rainy...it seemed as though the weather had multiple personality disorder, in other words, it was a typical PNW day. So, not sure if any of you recall or even ever saw an old television show called "Hee Haw". But basically it was a… Continue reading Web of grace…

Trenching along…

The snow is beginning to slowly melt off of the ground. It is cold, drizzly and wet. No real out doors time today. But I did spend some time helping a friend with some chore work. And that was good, through I should use gloves more often as my hands are a dried out wreck.… Continue reading Trenching along…

Prayerful Gratitude

Saw that our trees have mostly lost their leaves, but some are hanging on like someone has them super-glued to the branch. Which means it is virtually meaningless to clean the driveway at this point, but I do it anyway, because it appeals to my sense of tidy-ness. I have been spending a lot of… Continue reading Prayerful Gratitude
