Grapevine Quote of the Day ~ Oct 28

Posted by 28 October, 2016 (0) Comment

“In this life we shall attain nothing like perfect humility and love. So we shall have to settle, respecting most of our problems, for a very gradual progress, punctuated sometimes by heavy setbacks. Our old-time attitudes of ‘all or nothing’ will have to be abandoned.”

“What Is Acceptance?”
AA Co-Founder, Bill W., March 1962

When I forgive someone I guess what I really mean to say is that I admit I judge others. Forgiving and condemning are God’s business, not mine. Only He has the mercy to judge and to accept at the same time. My job is to achieve enough humility to see myself in others and to accept both myself and others, by identifying. The willingness to make amends will grow from this act of love.
– The Best of the Grapevine [Vol. 2], p. 162

Thought to Ponder . . . Forgiveness is the final form of love.

AA-related ‘Alconym’ . . . H O W = Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness.

I have a purpose in life.

Posted by 27 October, 2016 (0) Comment

I can help other alcoholics. I am of some use in the world. I have a purpose in life. I am worth something at last. My life has a direction and a meaning. All that feeling of futility is gone. I can do something worthwhile. God has given me a new lease on life so that I can help other alcoholics. He has let me live through all the hazards of my alcoholic life to bring me at last to a place of real usefulness in the world. He has let me live for this. This is my opportunity and my destiny. I am worth something! Will I give as much of my life as I can to A.A.?
