Abstinent Today:

I am a recovering compulsive overeater, abstinent by the grace of God one more* day at a time.  †




From today’s entry in Voices of Recovery:

“Through prayer and meditation we align ourselves with a higher spiritual power which gives us everything we need to live to our fullest potential.” — The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous, p. 98

This idea of spiritual alignment helped me out a lot.  It doesn’t matter what shape my spirit is in, or what size, color, texture, mood, altitude, range, depth, or degree of perfection; but only that it is in alignment with God – an agreement of purpose – an attitude that permits communion between and intercourse with God.  This spiritual practice of agreement doesn’t always take words, although verbal affirmations do help me most of the time.


I’m afraid that’s all for today.  God bless you with a day free from what wars against you!
