A Place Called Home

Last night was unbelievable. I drove out of state to a new meeting I found through the CR web site ( see link below). I typed in my zip code and chose a meeting at least fifty miles away from me. It was the best decision I have ever made. I was 15 min late to the meeting as I walked into the church. I hate being late but it so happened my phone GPS seemed to take me in the most expensive route with tolls. I took the long way there and finally the GPS=God’s Protective Service kicked in. I was welcomed with….Would you like to do a reading?  I responded with a “sure”. When it was my turn I read loud and clear. It all seemed so right. I would later find out that I was in the right place. Everyone had their bibles in the closed meeting. I wanted to bring mine but I left it behind remembering how at my last meeting I was stopped when I wanted to read from my bible. The last meeting brought me shame. This meeting brought me hope…..Will I go back again? Yes!!!!! I will make the drive across state borders like a refugee. I seek refuge and comfort in what this new CR meeting has to offer me. I can feel accepted,loved and renewed in knowing there is help for my hurts,habits,and hangups. I am moving forward in the right direction.
