"The Promises; Alcoholic Anonymous" (‘The Big Book’) pages 83 – 84
I needed to talk with you today about the promises. In a few months I will be doing a talk on the hidden promises of OA in a workshop. I would like to know your thoughts about it. If you were going to a workshop on this, what would you want to learn from it? Do you know what the hidden promises are and where they are found in the Big Book? Do you like someone to just talk or do you prefer interactive workshops where you can say something as well? What do you think you would want to gain from this workshop?
Ok... I am going to probably do an interactive workshop since I am that kind of person. I want to learn as well as teach. Right now I have thoughts of putting one of the promises on card or some kind of item you could take with you. All of the promises will be on some kind of item. Everyone will choose an item to take with them and then we will have that person discuss how their promise has either come to be or not and why. I thik most of the time we know why our promises do not come to be. For instance, I could get the fact that one of the promises is finding that fear is under control, that it doesn't rule my life. Then I could close with how through surgery I felt the peace within due to knowing He had it all under control. What do you think?
Well, almost time to get ready to go to church so I will cloise fo now. Have a blessed day!

Yesterday I went to Michael's after going to the doctor. Just felt like I needed to take some time alone to relax. Well, before leaving I felt a nudge pulling me towards the basket area. I never go over there! Well, guess what I found... Yes... another key! This time it is 15 inches and very heavy. I'm going to mail it to her today. Oh... price was $7.50! Unreal isn't it! I am truly amazed at how things worked out for her. HP surely has been busy!
Just to update you on my surgery... All went well. In fact, it went great! The doctor went to do the biopsy of the pallup and it wasn't even there! She said apparently it was just a shadow in the ultrasound and they had thought it was the real thing. I believe my HP was working and got it taken care of before she got there! That I can believe!
Well, I need to do some work around the house. Just wanted to let you know how HP has been blessing me this week and that I am doing fine. You have a great week!! I will be keeping you in my prayers. Remember... all we have to do is ask and He hears our prayers!

So, how are you feeling this morning? Are you feeling loved? Do you feel like you could use a friend today to put their arms around you and tell you all will be fine? If you do, stop for a moment and look inside. Take a deep breath and search for your HP. He is there for you if you seek Him out. Now...take His love and put it into your heart. You can do it! Have an awesome day. Probably no thoughts tomorrow due to surgery, but will be back. HP is in control!!
