Down And Out

I met a man holding a sign yesterday that said…….Need help with X-Mas and lights and gas. God Bless.Thank you. I was at a very busy street. I pulled over and talked to him. I heard his story and gave him some money. As he walked away, I called him back and gave him some more money and some quick advice. It was something he told me that made me believe he was truly genuine. It wasn’t the sign story but his personal story. I guess I have a knack with that…..Getting strangers to open up within minutes of talking to them. Down and out on their luck. I wonder how many addicts are out their searching for their Christmas fix. There is only one fix called recovery. Whether it is a Christ centered recovery program or a Twelve step recovery program, it is a discovery in life without addiction. Recovery gives us hope in a new way of living. We can either keep coming back or go back to our old ways of living. I will always take the gift of recovery over my former addictive life of deceit. 

Messages for recovery: You are worthy to be recovered and free from addiction.
