I heard a favorite preacher say don’t let reality limit you. (Dr. Tony Evans) Don’t deny reality; just don’t let it limit you.
The reality is everything has changed because of COVID-19; getting careless could invite all kinds of trouble. My reality is limited!
But that reality doesn’t need to limit me from enjoying what is my world today.
GRATITUDE is a choice I can still make when so many choices are not really mine to make.
Also, a friend reminded me to look at the ordinary, and be appreciative; the “ordinary” for many folks is hard going. The Benefits of Gratitude
Being sober today; maintaining coherent thoughts, and managing my emotions, and having relationships with people I trust is a good thing.
I miss the meetings – seeing people, and hearing their voices. So much of what makes my daily progress is remembering what others have said. Even when they are describing hurts and failures – there they are sharing, not using.
I am still pretty restricted of where I can go – I am glad for a computer and The Grapevine. And for favorite preachers who can speak truth into these strange and wonderful times than are today.
Love in Christ,
Sober and Grateful
