Why would God laugh at my plans
when He was the one that asked me to make them as part of Step 11?



(That has always been my comment -- when I've heard the comment above) :lol: :lol:

God is laughing at your plans for you, not at his plans for you.
That's how I understand Step 11.

Big Book: page 86 wrote:On awakening let us think about the twenty-four
ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before
begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking
that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking
motives. Under these conditions we can employ our mental
faculties with assurance, for after all God gave us brains
to use. Our thought-life will be placed on a much higher
plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives.

Kermit the Frog famously said, "It's not easy being green", but this Mr Green has a big, toothy smile because he's happy, joyous and free!
