I am thinking about a name change for my blog. What are some ideas? I know that I haven’t been that creative in the past. I have a newfound creativity to work with.
I think I will change it in the next 21 Days. That would be 3 weeks to see if anyone has a suggestion for the new name. That would be November 15.
I signed up for a service from KLOVE. I think the reason for my new found creativity is the fact that I did not have a firm foundation when I was 13 or 14. At 54 I find myself in a unique situation. It could take up to a year, but I am playing it eafe with Gambling. As far as my issues with Food, that was a different story.
Today is Tuesday October 25, 2016.
As I think about my new found freedom, I just finished Day 10 in my readings at the back of the Celebrate Recovery Bible. Also I got a visit from the Senior Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church. I will see how November goes, but I have decided to stay a Presbyterian through November. I am a member at Westminster Presbyterian Church for now.
I read through Ephesians 6:10-20 on Sunday Night, and I sent out some emails yesterday. I decided to move on to Principle Two (Step Two) yesterday. There are 8 Principles and 12 Steps. I am not sure how long I will be on that Principle for.
I have to recover at my own pace. Tomorrow is Wednesday October 26, 2016 according to my Casio Watch. I will get the Participants Guides for my Apple iPad next month when John goes shopping for an Amazon Gift Card. Enjoy the World Series with the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. The Sacramento Kings open up Wednesday on the road, then they play their first home game on a Thursday at the Golden 1 Center.
Thanks to Tecarta Bible app that I downloaded on my Apple iPad.
There are a few activities on the schedule for today here at Gramercy Court. If you think you might have a problem with Gamblimg, be sure and check out a meeting near you. I plan not to Gamble.
I talked with the Business Office here at Gramercy Court, and it looks like they have found a way to get me the four participants guides from Amazon.
Today is Saturday October 22, 2016
Right now I don’t want to say what Day 7 is about in the CR Study Bible eBook at this point. I just read what it says. For now I am glad that I have Step One / Principle One down.
I spoke with Social Services yesterday about my appointment with the Behavioral Psycholist.I will probably wait until Wednesday to determine if I can move on to Step Two.
As I recall from last night I spoke with one of the residents sons are who does Video for some of the local teams that helped me out. He suggested that I might have done Step Two already. That may be true, which means I have some extra time to wait until I tackle Step Three.
I forget whether today is the day that I read the GA 12 Steps off of the website. They haven’t sent the yellow combo book yet.
Well there is always a few other options right now.
– I can read the 12 Steps off the GA website
– I can read the 8 Recovery Principles by RickW.
– I can watch the 12 Steps on the YouTube Video
There may be others, but I don’t want to get overwhelmed.
At this point I will have to wait until at least Monday for the participants guides. I will download them from Amazon to Kindle on my iPad. I might try and contact the SA office for help. I saw a place on the internet that provides counseling for SA clients.
I should probably wait and get some sleep in before I take on the task. A Day at a time, and I plan to cover Day 8 tomorrow.
I just read the Day 5 Daily Meditation in the Celebrate Recovery Bible, and I plan to do Day 6 tomorrow. I know that yesterday morning I was on Step One / Principal One. My plan on October 20, 2016 is to remain on that step until November 2016.
I was supposed to meet with my Behavioral Psychologist on Wednesday, but I never really met her yesterday. She may have come in but hopefully I can meet with her next Wednesday. I plan to do the Day 6 Daily Meditation sometime on Friday.
I posted something on my Facebook blog. I know that everyone doesn’t use Facebook, but I do for right now. It would be nice if I could post my blog on Facebook, but at this point I am trying to step out of denial, and turn my life around.
I also have a Tecarta Bible program on my iPad, and I use both of the Bible’s. At this point I choose to believe that I am a Presbyterian. I joined Westminster Presbyterian Church, but I don’t attend. I am hoping to get a Celebrate Recovery Small Group started in the next six weeks. They are looking into how to get the first four Workbooks. I have a sample of the Participants guide 1 on my iPad.
That is all for now, and I look forward to the Holidays ahead. I just don’t want to see Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.
Today is Thursday October 20, 2016
I am sitting on the Patio here at Gramercy Court. I know that tomorrow is Day 4 in my reading the Daily Devotional. The question that I have at this point
is what to the do for three Hours until dinner.
This.is a picture of a television in Stuart House that I took about 30 minutes ago. I went over there and I am supposed to meet with someone Tomorrow at 2:00PM. That is where I find hope.
