1,000th post!

This milestone sort of snuck up on me. I am shocked to realize I've been blogging for over 5 years, to the tune of 1,000 posts. It seems that I ought to have some really wise and pithy thoughts to share on this occasion but alas, I am just grateful lol.

I've gotten so much from meeting all of you out there in the blogosphere that I cannot imagine life entirely without blogging (although the occasional break seems necessary in my case lol). My faith that AA and humanity are divinely given to us has been strengthened by all of the amazing sober people, writers, poets, and bloggers I've met along the way. There's just no way I'll believe this is all man's doing combined with a random system of coincidences.

I know that everything in this world happens for a reason, and that God is at the center of all good things. He is the Source of all good things. Today, I strive to live my life as I understand God would have me live it, and I fall short often. But, I continue to seek His will and follow along. Since adopting this attitude sometime during my first sober year in AA, my life has improved dramatically. It's really that simple.

prayer for today...

God, thank you for today. Thank you or my health, sobriety, AA, family and friends. I pray that I use this day to give glory to You and all the gifts You've given me. I pray that I might remember my calling to serve you and those around me, knnowing that I will be given all I will ever need. I pray that the alcoholics and addicts who are out there suffering might find the Grace I found when I finally realized that I needed to quit drinking and drugging. Thank you God for the gift of your Son and the Holy Spirit, an thank you for the inspiration to write and meet people via blogging.
