Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is emotion. “Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you" (William Arthur Ward). They're so many ways we encourage one another in Alcoholics Anonymous, starting with staying sober, shows up at meetings, sharing our stories; we can all list the times we were encouraged. Today let us “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative." Let our hearts and minds be filled by the love we are. Our love is a healing power touching everything into wholeness. Our love is an extension of our Father’s love. Come let us inspire each other to love more, to heal, to teach and to forgive. Let us encourage each other to accept our Father’s Love and His Will. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
