"I had a higher power when I was using; drugs as I understood
them." - Jack B.

One day while reading our recovery text, I saw the criteria for a
higher power. It was to be an all powerful, all loving, and all
caring power. It took a few minutes for this to sink in. This
thing called a "higher power" was a beautiful thing. I did not
realize what was about to take place in my life. Early recovery
was painful. My mind was tired. My body ached. My spirit was
weak. I heard the pain was in the resistance. I wanted to stay
clean. I decided that I was willing to do the footwork. I went
out and bought a dictionary. Meetings were my higher power. I
felt safe at meetings. A few days later a colorful rainbow
appeared in the sky. I had lived in Florida for 15 years. I had
seen hundreds of rainbows. None of them ever affected me like
this one. It was a warm feeling that made me smile to myself. I
was learning to feel. I was learning that I could see my higher
power everywhere, not just in meetings. All I had to do was be
willing to look.

"My trust in a higher power that wants me to survive and have
love in my life, is what keeps me moving forward."- Kenny Loggins
