Your Daily Reprieve for Friday November 1, 2019
From Haverhill, MA
"Open-minded people don't care to be right;
they care to understand.
They know it's more important to see where someone's coming from
than it is to change their mind."
"What you resist persists.
What you look at disappears.
You cannot experience yourself as what you are
until you've encountered what you are not."
~Neale Donald Walsch
because there has never been a person like you
and there never will be again."
AA is more than a set of principles;
it is a Society of alcoholics in action.
We must carry the message,
else we ourselves can wither and
those who haven’t been given the truth will die.”
~ Bill W., July 1955
Big Book Quote
“Cling to the thought that, in God's hands, the dark past is the
greatest possession you have; the key to life and happiness for
others. With it you can avert death and misery for them.”
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, The Family Afterward, pg. 124~

0328 Total Years of Sobriety
This starting expansion brought with it very severe growing pains. Proof that alcoholics could recover had been made. But it was by no means sure that such great numbers of yet erratic people could live and work together with harmony and good effect.
A.A. Thought For The Day
I have hope. That magic thing that I had lost or misplaced. T
he future looks dark no more. I do not even look at it, except when necessary to make plans. I try to let the future take care of itself. The future will be made up of todays and todays, stretching out as short as now and as long as eternity. Hope is justified by many right nows, by the rightness of the present. Nothing can happen to me that God does not will for me. I can
hope for the best, as long as I have what I have and it is good. Have I hope?
Meditation For The Day
Faith is the messenger that bears your prayers to God.
Prayer can be like incense, rising ever higher and higher.
The prayer of faith is the prayer of trust that feels the presence
of God which it rises to meet. It can be sure of some response from God. We can say a prayer of thanks to God every day for His grace, which has kept us on the right way and allowed us to start living the good life.
So we should pray to God with faith and trust and
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may feel sure of some response to my prayers.
I pray that I may be content with whatever form that response takes

"Taking this book down from our shelf we turn to the page which contains the twelve steps. Carefully reading the first five proposals we ask if we have omitted anything, for we are building an arch through which we shall walk free at last. Is our work solid so far? Are the stones properly in place? Have we skimped on the cement put into the foundation? Have we tried to make mortar without sand?"
c.1976 AAWS, Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 75
Thought to Consider . . .

Gently Releasing All Conscious Expectations
I CANNOT CHANGE THE WIND
is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and
rest on our laurels. We are headed for trouble if we do, for
alcohol is a subtle foe.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 85
My first sponsor told me there were two things to say about
prayer and meditation: first, I had to start and second, I had
to continue. When I came to A.A. my spiritual life was
bankrupt; if I considered God at all, He was to be called
upon only when my self-will was incapable of a task or
when overwhelming fears had eroded my ego.
Today I am grateful for a new life, one in which my
prayers are those of thanksgiving. My prayer time is more
for listening than for talking. I know today that if I cannot
change the wind, I can adjust my sail. I know the difference
between superstition and spirituality. I know there is a
graceful way of being right, and many ways to be wrong.
Before your God.
Let your God look upon you.
That is all.
God loves you
With an enormous love,
And only wants
To look upon you
With that love.
Let your God
