Dec. 25, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time
Friday, Dec. 25, 2015

Reflection for the Day
Today is a special day in more ways than one. It’s a day that God has made, and I’m alive in God’s world. I know that all things in my life this day are an expression of God’s love – the fact that I’m alive, that I’m recovering and that I’m able to feel the way I feel at this very instant. For me, this will be a day of gratitude.

Am I deeply thankful for being a part of this special day, and for all my blessings?

Today I Pray
On this day of remembering God’s gift, may I understand that giving and receiving are the same. Each is part of each. If I give, I receive the happiness of giving. If I receive, I give someone else that same happiness of giving. I pray that I may give my self – my love and my strengths – generously. May I also receive graciously the love and strengths of others’ selves. May God be our example.

Today I Will Remember
The magnitude of God’s giving.
