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.
Thanks for reading! What are you learning in all these uncertain times about recovery?
Love in Christ,
Sober and Grateful
