My morning program

All this is free on the internet. First, Daily Reflections:
http://www.aa.org/pages/en_US/daily-reflection

Then I say a prayer, "Lord, thanks for this day. I pray You will keep me sober and healthy, that You will strengthen and guide me, and help me to peacefully enjoy this day. I love You and thank You, Amen."

Then, Hazelden's Twenty Four Hours a Day:

Then, what the Good Old-timers used, The Upper Room:
http://devotional.upperroom.org

Followed by a period of mediation planning my day (sometimes I check the weather first).

Takes about 15 minutes. I did it on my phone when I was hospitalized.

1. Great program! One of my sponsors calls it "lectio."

But then, she thinks Latin-y stuff sounds cool.

I, too, have a regimen of short readings, prayer, and meditation that starts my day. As recovery has continued, I've added other "checkpoints" into my day as well... a short series of physical exercises in the late afternoon, after work is (mostly) done and before the evening's dinner and relaxation activities. And writing an entry in my "gratitude journal" before going to bed to sleep.

In the tide of unsanity that threatens to sweep me away, sometimes, these storm anchors keep my recovery boat afloat.

appreciatively,
Bright
