“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Lord, help me to fall into and trust your divine direction, your Good Orderly Direction because only You know what is best for me. We have to trust you are there, too, for the addict in our lives and as we pray and rest in Your mercy and glory, we can trust there is a Spiritual battle going on that we may not know about, but to understand you are working in Your perfect and divine timing to free the addict, and to free us from the chains of secondary addiction. Thank You, In Jesus’ Holy name, Amen.
Out of our own sorrows and joys
Out of our own losses and gains
Out of our own knowledge of ease and disease
Out of our own store of wealth and poverty
Out of our own efforts to walk through the darkness of disappointment and grief,
We here in this place join hands and heart.
Knowing that life isn’t always easy
Knowing the rewards aren’t always tangible
Knowing that this Earth walk takes Courage and Support…
Dignity and Faith,
In Unity…leaning on each other,
We reach out to those in need
And wrap them, with gentle gossamer strands of Love light,
In a healing embrace…in a Sacred healing embrace,
And whisper words of encouragement…
Because we are all One on this planet,
We and the Earth…all One.
Every Human, every Animal…One.
Every Winged, Finned, Creepy-crawly creature.
Every Plant. Every Stone.
All who have come before us and will come after us…
One Sacred Circle of Life.
And we commit ourselves to the Stewardship of this Sacred Circle
And to this Sacred Planet, Earth.
And ask that our efforts be blessed with Grace and Approval.
We must succeed in this endeavor!
There is no other way, but Love.
There is nobody else, but Us.
As we heal ourselves, we heal each other.
As we heal each other, we heal the world.
So be it.
