Your Daily Reprieve for Monday November 23, 2020
From Waynesville, NC
Every problem contains within itself
the seeds of its own solution.
If everyone were clothed with integrity,
if every heart were just, frank, and kindly,
the other virtues would be well-nigh useless,
since their chief purpose
is to make us
Love of money often makes a person a coward,
but love of power always makes a person a brute.
It is the most degrading love of all.
Love of material well-being seldom hurts others,
but love of power and glory always does.
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change,
the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.
~~ Lech Walesa
Big Book Quote
“Most of us have been
unwilling to admit we were real alcoholics. No

1289 Total Years of Sobriety
A.A.”s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.
A.A. Thought for the Day
I no longer refuse to do anything because I cannot do it to perfection.
Many of us alcoholics use the excuse of not being able to do something perfectly
to enable us to do nothing at all. We pretend to be perfectionists.
We are good at telling people how a thing should be done,
but when we come to the effort of doing it ourselves, we balk.
We say to ourselves: "I might make a mistake so I'd better let the whole thing slide."
In A.A. we set our goals high, but that does not prevent us from trying.
The mere fact that we will never fully reach these goals
does not prevent us from doing the best we can.
Have I stopped hiding behind the smoke screen of perfectionism?
Meditation for the Day
"In the world ye shall have tribulation. But be of good cheer.
I have overcome the world." Keep an undaunted spirit.
Keep your spirit free and unconquered.
You can be undefeated and untouched by failure and all its power,
by letting your spirit overcome the world;
rise above earth's turmoil into the secret chamber of perfect peace and confidence.
When a challenge comes to you, remember you have God's help
and nothing can wholly defeat you.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may have confidence and be of good cheer.
I pray that I may not fear the power of failure.
"Many oldsters who have put
our A.A. 'booze cure' to severe but successful tests still find they often
lack emotional sobriety. To attain this, we must develop real maturity and
balance (which is to say humility) in our relations with ourselves, with our
fellows, and with God."
"HOLD YOUR FACE TO THE LIGHT"
Believe more deeply. Hold your face up to the Light, even
though for the moment you do not see.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 3
One Sunday in October, during my morning meditation, I
glanced out the window at the ash tree in our front yard. At
once I was overwhelmed by its magnificent, golden color!
As I stared in awe at God's work of art, the leaves began to
fall and, within minutes, the branches were bare. Sadness
came over me as I thought of the winter months ahead, but
just as I was reflecting on autumn's annual process, God's
message came through. Like the trees, stripped of their
leaves in the fall, sprout new blossoms in the spring, I had
had my compulsive, selfish ways removed by God in order
for me to blossom into a sober, joyful member of A.A.
Thank you, God, for the changing seasons and for my everchanging
