Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Regrets? “We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.” Alcoholics Anonymous is where miracles happen and promises are kept. My regrets for the things I did have been tempered by loving forgiveness. By our Father’s grace some of my major defects were transformed into workable assets. I do regret the wrongs and harm done, and the good I didn’t do, yet His Loving grace changed those very things into a useful fulfilling purposeful way of life. I feel great saying, “I’m a grateful alcoholic.” However, I can understand why someone outside of A.A. thinking that I must be insane or callous, uncaring irresponsible person. I love undoing my wrongs and doing the good things not yet done, ASAP. If our Father wants those things done or not; He will give us an opportunity and whatever it takes, or He will just take it away. I cannot do anything to change the decisions or actions I made in my past, but I can choose once again. My future, today, holds many opportunities to make a good difference, no matter the size. Let me be the best son and brother to all; lover, healer, teacher, forgiver I can be, for I shall not past this way again. My heart’s desire has opened my eyes to see our father’s Presence, Love and the ears to hear His Holy Voice within the invisible silence. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
