Greetings all!

Happy Halloween!

The number one suggestion that my sponsor made to me is “no matter what, don’t drink today.”  In sobriety,
I have good days and bad days, but when I take that one piece of advice everyday, my life
is slowly improving and I am beginning to see God’s grace.

Quick Announcement:  Plans are in the work for Thanksgiving.  Please stayed tuned for more details!

Prayer for the day:

First Step Prayer
Dear Lord, Help me to see and admit that I am powerless over my alcoholism. Help me to understand how my
alcoholism has led to unmanageability in my life. Help me this day to understand the true meaning of powerlessness.
Remove from me all denial of my alcoholism. (This prayer is developed from the chapter, More About Alcoholism)
