for my highest level of good. Out of this situation only good will come. I am completely safe in a loving God's arms. Say it in front of the mirror while looking deeply into your eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul. So, speak to your own soul and remove the negativity from your head.
I received a lot of bad news in July and August. I did not react so great, often walking around frustrated or driving around thinking only of my burdens. I decided that upon my birthday, I was going to lay all of these burdens down. In particular, I was mourning the death of three people, one of whom I knew very, very well as a great buddy. Another was a friend from many years ago, but I was ot that close to her. I think that I chose to suffer. Finally, another was a brother of a good friend who just got sober with the Twelve Steps. Looking back, my choice to grieve was mine. God called these people home. They are free from any more suffering.
What I am saying is that, often, I do not cause misfortunes. So, logically, I should not question the author of death, life, health, sadness, happiness, etc. in the lives of others. As I can not control anyone but myself, I hereby thank God for the chance to know those with whom I have made acquaintance here on Earth. If they are gone, thank you God. If they are still here, thank you God. Either their memory or presence helps my light shine so that others are not in the dark. Thank you God for all.
I pray for more emotional sobriety, thanking God every day for relieving me from the addiction of white wine. Thank you. Gracias. Merci.
