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.

Thought For The Day

A.A. teaches us to take it easy. We learn how to relax and
to stop worrying about the past or the future, to give up
our resentments and hates and tempers, to stop being
critical of people, and to try to help them instead.
That’s what “Easy Does It” means. So in the time that’s
left to me to live, I’m going to try to take it easy, to
relax and not to worry, to try to be helpful to others,
and to trust God. For what’s left of my life, is my motto
going to be “Easy Does It”?
Meditation For The DayI must overcome myself before I can truly forgive other
people for injuries done to me. The self in me cannot
forgive injuries. The very thought of wrongs means that
my self is in the foreground. Since the self cannot forgive,
I must overcome my selfishness. I must cease trying to
forgive those who fretted and wronged me. It is a mistake
for me even to think about these injuries. I must aim at
overcoming myself in my daily life and then I will find
there is nothing in me that remembers injury, because the
only thing injured, my selfishness, is gone.Prayer For The DayI pray that I may hold no resentments. I pray that my mind
may be washed clean of all past hates and fears.
