we pause... ...and ask

As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action.

Alcoholics Anonymous, page 87

Today I humbly ask my Higher Power for the grace to find the space between my impulse and my action; ... to accept the moment which allows judgment to become discernment; to defer to silence when my tongue would rush to attack or defend.


the above was taken from my Daily Reflections book for today, January 20th. i am thinking there would be a bit of wisdom in the thought that i should read it when i wake up and start my day, rather than give it a glance when my day is over.
