HOPE is always a good thing...

On Jesus's birthday (april 6th) I wanted to recognize his grace in helping me get past the 50 day mark...
nothing but the mercy and grace of God has ennabled me to get to this point.

I do what I can to eat healthy, exercise, read/pray, be honest/open, be unashamed, connect with others (family/friends). (NO TV for me.. just a membership)

There are many aspects of my life that still need attention & god has been whispering those to me line upon line... but I'm just stunned and humbled that God has seen fit to grant me 50+ days of sobriety.

I've been thinkng a lot of the scripture..
"and they waxed stronger and stronger in humility."

it seems like the more and more that I realize that I of myself ultimately CANNOT MANAGE my life... and that I desperately NEED God's grace.. that the more recovery I am blessed with. I love where my life is going.. and I love God so much for his miraculous hand in my life lately.

I've been viewing everyday as DAY #1.. but it's nice to see some success, Thanks to God.


"Way to go! Sounds like you've got some good stuff going. Keep it up!"

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
