Sept. 1, 2014 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden

serenity prayer 9Monday, Sept. 1, 2014

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

A.A. Thought for the Day
Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burden of those two awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives us mad. It is the remorse or bitterness from something that happened yesterday or the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Am I living one day at a time?

Meditation for the Day
I give God the gift of a thankful heart. When life seems hard, I look for some reasons for thankfulness. If I seek diligently for something to be glad and thankful about, I will acquire in time the habit of being constantly grateful for all God’s blessings.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may be constantly reminded of causes for sincere gratitude.
