Good afternoon! My name is lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I saw this quote and laughed a little, but it's kinda true. If I don't keep myself busy, I will get into trouble. Idle hands are the Devil's workshop. When I start thinking too much, I can also get myself into trouble. But that't when I know I can pray. I can also call my sponsor, or talk to my husband, or call a friend. I am not alone. Sometimes I have to remind myself of that. Sometimes I also have too many irons in the fire too, trying to keep myself busy...writing books and blogs, photography, working, being involved in AA, all while being a mom and wife. Sometimes I think I'm going crazy, but on the other hand, it's called having a life. Before all I did was work, sleep, and drink or use. Today keeping busy helps keep me clean and sober. I like that. :) Don't forget to check out my store. Also I have a photography website now too! www.laurenyoderphotography.com. But to purchase anything, it will bring you back here. But please check it out! Thanks! That's all for today! Have a great one!

Wow......after reading some devotionals and recovery material this morning, I posted about this very thing. Trying to find balance is sometimes difficult so I pray for God's guidance to lead me.

Keeping busy will only last so long. Find out what feeds those voices will last forever!
