11th Step

Things are working out well. I did not feel spiritually fed by my ministry class and withdrew from it a few weeks back. That really opened me up to do other things which are much more nourishing, heart and soul stuff. The ministry class had some spiritual exercises which were worth while but it was fundamentally intellectual.

Now, I've been to an 11th step Meditation Meeting twice that I really like and I've been accepted into a Bible study group by some of the men in my morning group. I have time to volunteer for an interfaith homeless program in it's start up phase. My higher power and I are in better accord now that I can slow down to show up in spiritual places. I pray with hope & gratitude each new day to know God's will.

That's what's good about today.

  1. Sounds to me like there's a LOT of 'good' about today for you, Carol. I'm glad!

    Few years ago I went through a phase--for FOUR YEARS--of volunteering (playing violin at daily mass, and 5 masses on weekends), doing classes, joining TOO much/many 'church' stuff. I like to went crazy, don't really YET know why.

    For about a year now I've settled into a single program--immersed, ya might say--called Alcoholics Anonymous. Even though a sober member for many years, it has become a vibrant way of life for me at this time in my life.

    It just seems like everything I need is there, volunteering, service, prayer, meditation, growth, letting God use me to help others.

    (Just felt like 'talking' tonight--sorry for the length!) PEACE, Carol!
