What to Celebrate?

People like to Celebrate. What I are some ways that you can? I know that one of the ways that I like to Celebrate is at a birthday party. Earlier today I was looking at Google Maps on my Apple iPad, looking over some of the places where I grew up.

I was sitting in the Lobby here at Gramercy Court while listening to some music and I stopped by the Dining Room for the Baking for Benefits where Chris made Cookies.

As I think about the first three steps of my recovery program, I am looking forward to getting into a CR step Study. I imagine that there are other Christian Recovery Groups that deal with some of the things that I am trying to find Victory. I can rest in the fact that because I ask for something in prayer groups, God doesn’t always answer my prayers. As a Christian in Gamblers Anonymous I find it good to know I can always call the GA helpline if I consider placing a bet. I remember the combo book and I don’t have one right now.

I am trying to start off with a clean slate. I know that there is a list of meetings that I can attend. I find that prayer is a lot more freeing now. I am looking forward to Bible Study next week, when Pastor Flood will serve communion. I read through Ephesians on the Tecarta Bible App on my Apple iPad. I started on Romans, but that is a longer book. I will try to finish it before next Monday.

I checked the Calendar and it looks like there is a church service on Sunday at 2:00PM. I can always check the score of the game without calling a bookie. I believe that it is a non-denominational service on Sunday so anyone can attend.

Now if I can just find a way to get YouTube to play clips again I will be really happy.

Sponsor for my Recovery

As I think about all of the people that I have asked to be a sponsor for my recovery program, it looks like I will have to start a new list. I know that today’s Daily Meditation covered the the subject of what to look for.

I will have to pray about my search. I know that from some of my experience that it has been difficult to explain exactly what the role of a sponsor is. Fortunately the Meditation for today, which is Sunday October 23, 2016 has a scripture verse with it. I read the verse out loud.

The primary issue that I have with my GA experience is what else to say about my other recovery issues. The good thing is that in the Golden State of California there has to have been one other person who I can contact to be a sponsor, accountability partner or temporary sponsor.

I do have the CR Bible eBook that I got this past Sunday, and I spoke with someone in the Business Office about ordering the Participants Guides for my Kindle on my Apple iPad. I have been through a CR Step Study before, and Participants Guide One covers the first three steps of any recovery program.

Of course my issues regarding SA and SimCityBuildit, which I thought about this past Friday I know that every support group has their own little control code. I don’t believe that I am actually addicted to the game on my Apple iPad. I have other things on my IPad besides SimCity. I have another Bible that I got from Tecarta. I will have to wait about six weeks to be able to ask someone.

My Home Church is Westminster Presbyterian Church for right now. That is in Sacramento. I joined them when I was living Downtown at Pensione K. I can listen to past sermons online and watch videos of some of the past M.A.N. Concerts. I listened to last weeks sermon on my iPad last night. This was during dinner in the Dining Room.

Day 5 Daily Meditation

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.
