Wednesday 7/22/09 - "GOD IS GOOD"
"GOD IS GOOD"
I know that no matter how things may appear at any given moment - no matter how difficult - God is good, cares about me, cares about those I love, and is always ready to scoop us up into His loving and powerful hands.
I am grateful tonight as I so often repeat - for prayer. I am grateful that I believe in the power of prayer, that I pray often, and that I have been given proof in seeing prayers answered in my life and the lives of others.
I am grateful that others are so loving and willing to pray for me and my loved ones. I know that I have been prayed for, I feel those prayers, and I watch the results of those prayers play out in my life.
I am so very grateful as I also often say - that God gave us the Alcoholics Anonymous program without which we would perish. I watch lives transformed in front of my very eyes. I watch God do for me and others what we cannot do for ourselves.
I am grateful that after a very, very long day, I will be able to lay my head on my pillow tonight knowing that God is completely in charge and is holding all of us in His loving hands.
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
