DAY NINETEEN OF A FORTY-DAY PRACTICE

MY MISSION STATEMENT - I am devoted, dedicated, committed to experiencing Your Presence, Father consciously, consistently within me and everywhere present. I want to know, to realize, to live for Your Will for me, empowered by Your loving grace. My mission in now clear, I need, I want to share all I am given with whomever You Will, Father. I look to You as my only Source to provide me with everyone and everything it takes to carry out the Mission You gave me. Thank You.

TODAY: SOCIAL EQUIVALENT

It is hard for me to believe the social change that I have experienced since I came into this Program. Early in the Program I believed, if no one would not try to lock me up I would be OK. If no one would try to talk to me I could get along. Before I knew it, I could not wait to get with my home group. Not only was it OK to be around other people, I wanted to take part in A.A. even 12 Step work. I had not realized until then how hungry I was to share my life with other humans or how lonely I was. Now I spend from eight to twelve hours a day sharing our Program. I am so grateful that I have something of value, I can share; my life now does make a good difference.

For more than fifty-one years I have been in the position to have the way, the place and the means to share our Program. I sold my business in 1981, I kept an office where I share our Program, and I am well provided for. I have been writing workbooks, workshop papers and doing workshops, retreats and study groups for more than twenty-five years. I hold meetings in my office, and I share with others one-on-one. This website has served as a useful way to share for the last ten years. I realize the One Source of all of this I am so very grateful.

All the above are miracles, everyday miracles. I received the grace to share with so many that have a willingness to continue to grow. If I gave you the impression that these miracles come by any other than our Father's grace, I mislead you. I question my social skills and my ability to communicate our message. I do not question our Father's guidance, love and tender mercy. I accept with joy the willingness of others to freely share, what they received. There are so many who do not have a Program in which they can share their love with others, we do, we could share our love 24/7 if we were of mind to.
