Poem

There are two days in every week
About which we should not worry
Two days
That should be kept free from fear and apprehension

One is yesterday with all its mistakes and cares
Its faults and blunders, its aches and pains

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control
We cannot undo a single act we performed or erase a single word we said
Yesterday is gone forever

Then there is tomorrow
With all its possibilities, it’s adversities, its burdens, its rewards

Tomorrow’s sun will rise
Either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds
But it will rise

Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow
For it has yet to be born

That leaves today
Anyone can fight the battle of just one day
It’s when you add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow
That you break down

It’s not the experience of today that drives a person mad
It’s the remorse or bitterness of something that happened yesterday
And the dread of what tomorrow might bring

Therefore, it only makes sense
For peace of mind and hope
Live simply one day at a time
Live today!

                 My Spirit

 

                 My spirit, you exist within omnipotence.  

 

                 May your name be holy.  

 

                 May your kingdom incarnate itself within me.  

 

                 May your power unfold itself within me, on Earth and in the  heavens. 

 

                 Give me today my daily bread, that I may recognize my wrong

                 doings and the truth. 

 

                 And lead me not into temptation and confusion, but

                 deliver me from error. 

 

                 For yours is the kingdom within me and the power and

                 the knowledge forever. Amen.

Serenity Prayer

 

 God grant me the serenity
 to accept the things I cannot change;
 courage to change the things I can;
 and wisdom to know the difference.

 Living one day at a time;
 Enjoying one moment at a time;
 Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
 Taking, as He did, this sinful world
 as it is, not as I would have it;
 Trusting that He will make all things right
 if I surrender to His Will;
 That I may be reasonably happy in this life
 and supremely happy with Him
 Forever in the next.
 Amen.

  --Reinhold Niebuhr

Young man you may be in the world, but you are not of it!

 

            Today is a Gift that's why they call it the Present!

 

            Spirituality = Honesty Openmindedness + Willingness

 

            Religeon is for those who want to avoid Hell,

            Spirituality is for those that have already

            been there.

      

            Resentments kill more than alcohol does

 

            Stick with the winners

 

            Having problems with relationships?

           

            You may be suffering from an illness that only spiritual

            principles can resolve.

 

            Years after you put down the drink you can still be sick,

            miserable, nasty and mean. You are probably suffering

            from untreated alcoholism and can't solve the riddle.          

            You have tried will power but it hasn't been helpful enough.

        

            Contempt prior to investigation keeps us in everlasting ignorance.

 

            Fear is an evil and corroiding thread  

 

            The spiritual path is an inward journey to find your Higher Power.

            Deep within us there is peace and stillness.

               

            Seven days without a meeting makes one weak!

 

            Carry the message not the mess.

 

            Are you a bad person trying to get good or

            a sick person trying to get well?
