Jan. 5, 2016 – A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time
Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016

Reflection for the Day
“Vision is, I think, the ability to make good estimates,” wrote Bill W., co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. “Some might feel this sort of striving to be heresy against ‘One Day at a Time.’ But that valuable principle really refers to our mental and emotional lives, and means chiefly that we are not foolishly to repine over the past nor wishfully daydream about the future.”

Can I believe that “A day has a hundred pockets when one has much to put in them …?”

Today I Pray
I pray that the bright colors of this day may not be blurred by muted vagaries of the future or dulled by storm-gray remnants from the past. I pray that my Higher Power will help me to choose my actions and concerns out of the wealth of busyness that each day offers.

Today I Will Remember
I will not lose for today,
If I choose for today.
