Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Thoughts For Your Tool Box. “A prophet is not without honor save in his own country.” This helped me understand why I do not honor myself. I know the history of my shortcomings and defects too well. No wonder I need our Father to do for me what I cannot do, alone and unaided. The happy person is the one who has really forgiven their self and others. You could say that person is able to enjoy the scenery even when they have to take a detour, or just don’t get their way. They’ve realized they’re not called to live up to others responsibilities or standards nor blame anyone else or the seasons, but accept their part. Ownership of their stuff gives them the power, the right to surrender everything to the Big Boss for upgrading or transforming into assets. When they see others commit a wrong or fall in an old negative ditch knows it is not a permanent state of being, in fact there’re willing to help them get up and running, ASAP. Sounds like a real friend to me. “Everything comes to him who waits, if he works while he waits.” “A closed mind is like concrete; thoroughly mixed and permanently set.” A.A. suggests that there are three essentials of recovery – willingness, honesty and open mindedness. That’s a triple threat to alcoholism by practicing those three in our daily life, it makes staying sick unattractive to say the least. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
