February 1 - God is the energy you call imagination. God is creation. God is first thought. And God is last experience. And God is everything in between. Page 198 - Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1."
God is the only constant in this world. I know this because it is only He that has always been with me and has carried me when I could not carry myself. For this I am grateful.
This past Saturday night was Birthday Night at Lambda. There were 37 participants with a total of 529 years. I was blessed with being able to claim 18 of those for myself and I was one of those 37.
Sobriety is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I do not feel that I ever will abandon it. I am committed to my sobriety like I have never been committed to anything else. It has been a gift from God and therefore a Miracle.
And yes, I am signing off for now. I find that blogging has become a chore rather than a joy as it used to be. I have talked to my sponsor about this and he agrees that I should probably step away from it for awhile. I am not shutting it down because I may drop a Post every now and then. I do check y'all's blog from time to time, I just don't comment much anymore.
My health is getting better all the time. I'm still doing the Aquatice therapy 3 days a week and am up to 25 repititions on each of my exercises. It has made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and I can walk much better than I have for a long while. Being dibetic I have had neuropathy in both of my feet and that can wallop one's ballance. The exercizing has hellped that tremendously. Mental health is doing well also and I am now on a once a month therapy schedule with my psychiatrist. For the past 8 years I have gone from two or three times a week, to weekly with 2008 and 2009. 2009 I started biweekly, then to every three weeks and now monthly. Progress.
I love and highly respect every one of you.
Tonight I am grateful for:
- God, my Higher Power.
- My Sobriety
- Mamie, my miniature schnauzer.
- My Sponsor
- My Spiritual growth that is an ongoing work in progress, it will never reach perfection.
- Friends of 4 and 5 decades
- My sober friends that call me on my crap ever so gently.
- All y'all
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!
