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.

Keep it Simple

Charity sees the need, not the cause. —German proverb—
As charity is not just giving money to good causes, it is having a heart that’s ready to give. It can also

be helping a friend at two in the morning. Charity is going early to the meeting to put on coffee

without being asked. Service is how Twelve Step programs refer to “Charity”. Service and charity are a lifestyle. We see a need, so we try to help. Our values and our heart will guide us in how we help. Service is a big part of our program. Service helps us think of others, not just of ourselves. We stop asking, “What’s in it for me?” The act of helping others is what’s in it for us. Sobriety is what’s in it for us. Serenity is what’s in it for us. Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, You have given me many talents. Help me see how my talents can make the world a better place. Giving of myself is believing in You and myself.
Action for the Day:   Today, I’ll list my talents and I’ll think of ways I can use them to help others.
