Sunday morning reflection

Good morning all! It's another Sunday morning, the usual pre-Mass warm up lol. I love blogging onSunday mornings, it's quiet, peaceful and a great time to get my spiritual engine roaring before my family and I head off to be with the Lord.

It's been a busy but good week. Work's been busy so that's good. I got our very first organizational meeting set up with the county commsioners and administrator to get our "Save Our Homes' task force going. That's kool, I am very excited about that. I've met some new blogger friends both in and out of recovery, very nice! Kari in Phenix in recovery, and my new Catholic friend James. To cap off the week, we're doing the family "hang out and spend a bunch of time together before our weekends get really busy next month" thing. If the weather holds, we'll have a fire out back and Ian and I will pitch the tents and sleep out. He's been dying to do that...

I have to say this... all the posting I have been doing about ym wife and I struggling to communicate well, struggling with one another's moods and what not. Well, for Mother's Day I bought her a couple books that I thought might help her along the lines of attitude and positive thought, etc (a classic "loving, al-anon meeting needing" move on my part, no doubt). Well, one of these books is "The Secret." She is already re-reading it which that alone is pretty freaky because she doesn't like to sit and read but here she's been reading it every nite since she got it. Well she ordered a copy from me and can't wait for me to read it and for us to rent/watch the DVD. I have noticed a profound change in her disposition over the last week or two... Frankly, I am at a loss to understand nor do I care or need to. I am so happy to see her enjoying her life a day at a time, etc. Nothing about our circumstances has changed and well to be honest, I have been the more grumpy on this past week or two lol. I haven't gotten grumpier, she's gotten way less grumpy and uptight so now by comparison lol I am the one who needs the attitude adjustment lol. I am excited for her, to see her getting into something that seems to bring her peace and happiness and the ability to see things in a positive light. I can't wait to get my copy of this book... I may just eat it! I am also curious to see what the coming weeks bring! I figured with all the bitching and moaning about things I had been doing, I damn well better post an update on things, especially after the turn they've taken...

Prayer for today...

JC/HP/God, please help me stay sober just for today, and please continue to releive me of the obsession to drink, take drugs and smoke ciggys. I am so grateful that you've seen fit to remove these insanities from this alcoholic/addict. That tells me that my message of hope to my inmate riends yesterday was spot on! Thanks for using me ot share Your Word and Good News. I pray for Your Will and Grace for my two sponsees (or well geeze Scott cut the cord: former sponsees, lol) who are out there as living testimony to me that things aint gonna get better if I choose to drink. Thank You God for Your Son and Your Church. Please help me grow in my faith an understanding of Your Word, that I might become a better servant and teacher of Your Word. Please help me prepare to teach this fall by guiding me to learn what You want me to learn in my upcoming classes and by reading Your Word. Thank You for this day with my family and in Your presence.

may peace be with you all!
