Let us recognize our loved ones once more
When I first heard this song, it
made me wish I could write lyrics so beautiful.
"Lately I don't recognize you The fire in your eyes is fading into embers So while you're out there in the darkness I'm praying you'll remember
You were made to shine You were made for life Even if you've lost your way Turn and you will hear love say You were made for more..."
I pray that many of you will take
the words in deep, as addictions can change who people are and how they respond
and relate to their families. Jesus came to bring us out of the darkness into
His glorious light. I'm praying the Lord will give me more on these lyrics but
for now It's Thursday and a great day for recovery in the state of
Florida. Go to a meeting, spread some love and hope and work your program! Make
a gratitude list and truly think about what you are writing down and what you
have to be grateful for, we ask for grace today as we pray for those in recovery
and their families:
Complete Serenity Prayer
give us grace to accept with serenity the
things that cannot be changed, courage to
change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it is, Not as I would have it, Trusting that You will make all things right, If I surrender to Your will, So that I may be reasonably happy in this
life, And supremely happy with You forever in
the next. Amen.
