|Some flowers from my friends.|
Last night I spoke and if I was to do it all over again I think I would have shared this prayer, it is beautiful and it really says it all!!
From The 12 Step Prayer Book
If I speak in the tongues of men and even of angels, but have not sobriety, I am a noisy gong or a clanging symbol. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to move mountains but have not sobriety, I am nothing. IF I give away all that I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, bit have not sobriety, I gain nothing.
When I am sober, I am patient and kind. When I am sober, I am not jealous nor boastful, not arrogant or rude. When I am sober, I do not insist on my own way. When I am sober, I am not irritable or resentful. I do not rejoice at wrong as I used to do but rejoice in what is right.
When I am sober I can bear all things, believe in all things, hope all things, and endure all things.
Sobriety never ends and never fails.
When I was using, I spoke like an arrogant child, thought like a stubborn child and reasoned like a rebellious child. When I chose sobriety for my life, I gave up my childish ways.
So faith, hope, love and sobriety abide, but for me, the most important has to be sobriety, for without it, I cannot have the other three, nor can I ever have the serenity I yearn to possess.
