A Beginning in Springtime
I watch the new life and feel its awakening.
EACH spring, as I watch the green shoots in the earth struggle towards the light, I am reminded of another spring and another struggle. As I watch the buds on the trees begin to open, as if they were awakening from a long sleep, I am reminded of another awakening, ten years ago, an awakening within me.
Often in our meetings I have heard it said: "I can accept most of this program, but I just can't accept this God business." Although these words are strange to me now, they were also my agnostic words when I first read our Twelve Steps.
