I missed out on writing yesterday. My day was enhanced by progress at the hospital. I got to see my friend awake and responsive for the first time in many days. He seems to be doing somewhat better.

Today, I started my day pretty dry of any inspirational thought, except for surrender, but I did run across a tidbit that reminded me of self-serving’s hold on me before Step Six. It was Proverbs 5:22, “The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; and the cords of his sin hold him fast.”
