Bronze Medallion

Sunday night was the final lesson of my 26 week Step Study. I got a bronze medallion to commemorate the HARD work. Sometimes I can't believe how much healthier my spirit, mind, and body are. God is using Celebrate Recovery to change my life, my marriage and my family in amazing ways. Yes, I still struggle at times. I'm sure I always will. I am human, but now I have hope and the assurance that I am never alone. I am learning to allow God to direct my path.

By the way, I started another Step Study. It should end in the Spring. I have so much more work to do. I've only begun to allow God to scratch the surface. I want to go much deeper.

Here are just a few of the little saying, key words, concepts, or terms that I've learned at Celebrate Recovery. Some are new to me, some are old. Some are precious others are corny and trite. I love them.

Progress, not perfection.

Keep coming back.
It works if you work it.
So work it,
You're worth it.
