Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

AA Thought for the Day

Sometimes we can’t help thinking: Why can’t we ever drink
again? We know it’s because we’re alcoholics, but why did
we have to get that way? The answer is that at some point
in our drinking careers, we passed what is called our
“tolerance point.” When we passed this point, we passed
from a condition in which we could tolerate alcohol to a
condition in which we could not tolerate it at all. After
that, if we took one drink we would sooner or later end
up drunk. When I think of liquor now, do I think of it as
something that I can never tolerate again?

Meditation For The Day

In a race, it is when a goal is in sight that heart and
nerves and muscles and courage are strained almost to the
breaking point. So with us. The goal of the spiritual life
is in sight. All we need is the final effort. The saddest
records made by people are those who ran well, with brave
stout hearts, until the sight of the goal and then some
weakness or self-indulgence held them back. They never
knew how near the goal they were or how near they were to

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may press on until the goal is reached.
I pray that I may not give up in the final stretch.
