not so bitchy Tuesday!

It's amazing what a good night's sleep can do for one's perspective...

I'm feeling much better today, of course it helps that it's my wife's B-Day... She's coming over to the office in a bit to open gifts then were off to have an early supper. So, that'll be nice!

RCIA has been great... I'm really feelling as if I am learning alot and that my faith is growing a lil bit too. It is starting to remind me of what it was like once the fear of meetings wore off, early on in recovery. I couldnt wait until my next meeting, the next revelation to be revealed, the next really great conversation to be had. That's what the RCIA process is turning into for me.. love it! I had no idea that the Catholic faith could be so awesome, so personal and real. I have always had a TON of crappy organized religion stereotypes in my head. I really think that the old Herbert Spencer standard applies here.... the quote from the "Spirituality" Appendix 2 in the Big Book about contempt prior to investigation...

Prayer for the day...

God/HP/JC, thanks for giving me the gift of sobriety for another day. I pray that I might use the gift as You've intended, to help others. I am especially concerned about a friend/sponsee. He left the program after about 10 mos sober, and is going thru a tough time. I am trying my best to maintain contact, without proselytizing. I want to be there for D in case he wants to reach out but I dont want to chase him off... God/HP/JC, please help me carry the Message as You would have me carry it... Help me too, to help my wife enjoy her BD. I pray for Your WIll and Grace in our lives, in the lives of our families, friends and alkies/addicts.

peace to y'all!!
