The Serenity Prayer

A Day at a Time
Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014

Reflection for the Day
The longer I’m in The Program and the longer I try to practice its principles in all my affairs, the less frequently I become morose and depressed. Perhaps, too, there’s something to that cynical old saying, “Blessed is he that expecteth nothing, for he shall not be disappointed, but instead will be delighted daily by new and fresh evidence of the love of God and the friendliness of men and women.”

Does someone, somewhere, need me today? Will I look for that person and try to share what I’ve been given in The Program?

Today I Pray
May I be utterly grateful to God for lifting my depression. May I know that my depression will always lighten if I do not expect too much. May I know that the warmth of friends can fill the cold hollow of despair. May I give my warmth to someone else.

Today I Will Remember
To look for someone to share with.
