April 17, 2022 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation


Sunday, April 17, 2022

Today’s Gift from HazeldeBetty Ford Foundation is:

Laughter is the effervescent form of holiness. — Anne Lamott

For a long time, we didn’t really laugh. It’s surprising when we think about it: we hadn’t really laughed for so long …we almost forgot how good we could feel. It feels so good to laugh again!

Now, our spirits come more alive each day. Now, we feel what alcohol and other drugs stuffed deep inside us. Pain, fear, and anger come up. But so do happiness and joy, thankfulness and a sense of humor. In early recovery, we work through the hard feelings. As we grow in the program, we have more and more room for happiness.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, wake me up to the joy and laughter that today holds for me. Don’t let me miss it!

Action for the Day

Today I’ll spread some laughter. I will learn a joke and tell it to three people.
