Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. When people "change" they usually say they are turning over a new leaf. I really like how this quote puts it. That we should actually be pruning our tree so that new leaves blossom. The Twelve and Twelve Traditions book says on pg 94, " . . . we know that the pains of drinking had to come before sobriety, and emotional turmoil before serenity." Sometimes we have to grow through the pain. God is continuing to teach me. In the Bible, John 15:2 says, "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit." So we aren't just turning over a new leaf, we are cutting back all the bad branches, so new can grow. What a great thing! That's all I have for today! Have a great one! Don't forget to sign up for my book drawing.
