We react sanely and normally, and we find that this has happened automatically. We will see that our new attitude toward [food] has been given to us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes! That is the miracle of it. (Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 85.)
I went in the kitchen, like I was throwing myself off a cliff without a parachute.
I went in the kitchen like the little girl trusting her father’s invitation to jump down into the black hole of the deep well where he was working. (poem)
“Jump!” he called to her. “I’ll catch you.”
I went into the kitchen taking no thought beforehand what I should eat. In no way did I prepare myself to confront food or control myself around it.
Fifteen minutes later, I find myself being invited by the Lord to do the only thing He wants me to do:
Record the miracle. Tell the story to anyone who will listen. Invite anyone who is ready to ‘let go absolutely.’
So here’s the miracle for this morning: I weighed, measured and ate 2/3 cup cottage cheese, 2/3 cup peaches without sugar, and 10 raw almonds.
