April 3, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time
Monday, April 3, 2017 
Reflection for the Day
In almost every instance, the returned slipper says, "I stopped going to meetings," or, "I got fed up with the same old faces," or, "My outside commitments were such that I had to cut down on meetings,"  or, "I felt I'd received the optimum benefits from meetings, so I sought further help from more meaningful activities."  In short, they simply stopped going to meetings. A saying I've heard in The Program hits the nail on the head: "Them which stops going to meetings are not present at meetings to hear about what happens to them what stops going to meetings." 
Am I going to enough meetings for me? 
Today I Pray
God keep me on the track of The Program. May I never be too tired, too busy, too complacent, too bored to go to meetings. Almost always those complaints are reversed at a meeting if I will just get myself there. My weariness dissipates in serenity. My busyness is reduced to its rightful proportion. My complacency gives way to vigilance again. And how can I be bored in a place where there is so much fellowship and joy? 
Today I Will Remember
Attend the meetings.
