I got to reading my morning devotions late today. This one reminded me so much of you, I had to post it. I mean this says Dallas B inside and out, and I'd like for you to have it "for desert" on top of that steak you were talking about.

Inspirations never go in for long engagements; they demand immediate marriage to action. - Brendan Francis
God speaks to us in many ways at many times. If we are spiritually alert, we will know it when it happens. A stray thought occurs; we overhear a bit of conversation; a passage in something we are reading suddenly stands out - and we know we have connected. A feeling of assurance and peace comes over us.
The trouble is that we might acknowledge this contact only briefly, and then it slips away. The time to act passes. The favor we could have done; the advice or support we could have offered; the help we could have given or received - all are missed opportunities.
When God speaks, we must do more than listen.
Today I will act when inspired.
Oh! Was that ever something for me to digest this evening. Brings tears to my eyes. What a reminder! Thanks brother for your constant care in reminding us alcoholics of the 100% hopeless variety: "action, and more action."
You help me much more than you'll ever know.
God bless always,
