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

After that first drink, we had a single track mind. It
was like a railroad train. The first drink started it
off and it kept going on the single track until it got
to the end of the line, drunkenness. We knew this would
happen when we sat down at a bar to have the first drink,
but still we couldn’t keep away from liquor. Our will-power
was gone. We had become helpless and hopeless before the
power of alcohol. It’s not the second drink or the tenth
drink that does the damage. It’s the first drink. Will I ever
take that first drink again?
Meditation For The DayI must keep a time apart with God every day. Gradually I
will be transformed mentally and spiritually. It is not the
praying so much as just being in God’s presence. The
strengthening and curative powers of this I cannot
understand, but I can experience them. The poor, sick
world would be cured if every day each soul waited before
God for the inspiration to live aright. My greatest
spiritual growth occurs in this time apart with God.Prayer For The DayI pray that I may faithfully keep a quiet time apart with
God. I pray that I may grow spiritually each day.
