My topic...

I went to an AA meeting tonight and during the second moment of silence(anybody have a topic?) a gentleman across the room says, "I wanna talk about Step Three."  I felt as if I had been set-up! This was just the meeting the doc ordered for me. Funny how that works huh? I heard a lot of stuff I needed to hear. I shared some things I needed to share. It's so cool to be reminded that sometimes Step Three is an ongoing thing.  It may take a while to sink in. I need to lighten up on me. I actually said that my face hurt, because it had been a while since I had laughed. The funny thing is, I'm usually the one making people laugh. Blogger is acting strange, so I will publish this. I feel much better about things today. You are never alone with AA.

Almost like what some call, a "God Shot." I am prescribing some laughter for you. Be sure to follow directions and laugh lots.

Wow, so true. It's amazing how sometimes these meetings seem "pre-arranged". I'm so glad for you!

Certainly, for me, Step 3 is a daily process. A way to approach virtually every situation.
As soon as I begin neglecting Step 3, my life goes awry (again) and my spiritual existence ceases to be.

I am chairing a meeting @ 10am, unsure of the topic. Thanks for being God's messenger, AB. Step 3 is exactly what I need today (and every moment of every day).

We judge ourselves much harsher than anyone else could possibly judge us. Lightening up seems so simple doesn't it, but it's practice daily is what makes it so hard. You will get through step 4 and boy when you do...you will feel amazing :)Have a great day!

This must be going around!
*goosebumps*

We talked about Step 3 nd "Faith," in general at the women's step meeting I went to last night. It was absolutely amazing to hear how HP is showing up and working in the lives of these women. What's more amazing for me, is that my faith is being rekindled, too, and I am experiencing the presence of my HP in my life once again.
