Aug. 6, 2014 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden


serenity prayer 1Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is the lightning that does the work.
 — Mark Twain

Thunder demands our attention. From the ear-splitting boom overhead to the faint rumble in the distance, it is an impressive part of nature. Yet, it is the lightning that discharges electricity from one cloud to another, or to the earth.

We are sometimes like thunder. We may shout our intentions to family members, or quietly tell our dreams to friends. No matter how we say it, it is the ability to follow through that is most important. When we’ve completed what we’ve set out to do, we will feel a sense of satisfaction and energy. With this energy, and the knowledge we can finish what we set out to do, we will make our dreams come true.

What is left incomplete that I can finish today?
