I could phrase it "these are the steps I continuously heard/complained/had opinions on/avoided/critiqued etc etc all those years I was in and out of AA and then finally took and was amazed that the damn stuff was true".
Today I try to stick to sharing on the experiencing I have had not the opinions on experiences I have never had
Now today I hope to have a grand 1234th day of sobriety and I was just poking about and thought wow 1,2,3,4 how cool is that to drop by the site and share. Today I do not try to advocate how someone connects with God but I love this little blurb that I just read on silkworth dot net :
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and may not have charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
I think I will try to be of service today.
Ciao, all!!!!! The sun is shining the birds are singing. It's a long way from 1 2 3 4 days ago;-)
