"The actual experience of turning myself inside out for the first time in the presence of an AA member left me drained and numb; but when feeling started to come back, I found that I had changed. For the first time in my AA experience, I could feel the sunshine of God's love on my wounds, and true peace of mind."

This is a remarkable quote. Until we give up everything and accept Gods love we cannot accept ourselves. I used to find joy in the bottle, yet I know it is not the right decision, it was a band aid for my lack of acceptance. I pray every day to find joy in the little things and to give me wisdom and strength to find joy away from the bottle. This quote reassured me of that today. And I am grateful for Gods gift of life today.
