Love doesn't just sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.
—Ursula K. LeGuin


I looked outside of myself for years to find love. What I came to realize when I came into recovery, and my son got caught up in his addiction, I passed a lot of my fears along to him. I did not know how to express love, our family was not demonstrative. My sister's and I had a reunion, it was sad, not a hug to be found.

A saying I heard more years ago than I care to remember, about a little boy who was asked who God was. He replied, Teacher, everyone knows, God is a feeling."



If I had to add a feeling to God. It would be love. It is unconditional, forgiving, and caring.

God is as He reveals Himself to me in today. The key for me, is to keep looking for Him. When I think I KNOW who God is, I might just stop looking and listening for Him.

I looked for love and happiness and in recovery, I found it was an inside job.

God is great. God is good. Let us thank Him for this food. For the food and everything else in my life. He has been very good to me.

God is Good. Good is God. God is Love. Love is God.
