Security -- I want my Blankie!

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may go each day to God as a refuge until fear goes and peace and security come. I pray that I may feel deeply secure in the Haven of His spirit.

***I got a little giggle out of this one***

Pay it Forward for Yesterday: Even though I'm still under the weather, I got up early and made ziti for my daughter's after game tailgate party. I'm not saving the world with this stuff, but it's a start.


Instead of going to God when I have a little paper cut, I usually wait too long -- until my arm is severed and I'm bleeding to death. Ha, I think that video had more of an influence on me than I realized.

I think I used to feel that relying on God for every little thing showed weakness. But I don't believe that anymore. I know now it shows faith.

If I can't rely on my higher power for warmth, comfort and protection, then who can I rely on?


Short and sweet today because the prayer says it all. Happy Labor Day to All!

Live my life to the What?

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may live each day as though it were my last. I pray that I may live my life as though it were everlasting.

*** You couldn't get me to do this in a million years***

PAY it FORWARD for Yesterday: I won the 50/50 at my daughter's game and donated it back to the team even though I really could have used it.


I always love a good prayer. What prayer can be bad, right?

(PEE or Applejuice -- Life's Eternal Mystery)

Well, today's daily prayer -- I had a trouble with it. Before I became sober, that's exactly how I lived my life -- as if each day were my last. Look where that mentality almost got me... in a coffin, nearly taking some others with me.

Sue, I don't think the prayer means that... The key is Everlasting. You must live your life each day with the light of your Higher Power as your eternal guide.

Since I'm still confused, I'm decided to change the prayer to something more comfortable for me:
Live today with all the kindness, forgiveness and grace that I would muster as if I knew it were the day I was going to meet my Maker.

It's okay to change a prayer, right?
