THE AA CAMEL

 


 

The camel each day goes twice to his knees.

He picks up his load with the greatest of ease.

He walks through the day with his head held high.
And stays for that day, completely dry.

 

One Day At A Time

 

God grant me Serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can,

and Wisdom to know the difference.

 

 

Dr. Bob would explain prayer by telling how the camels in a caravan would kneel down

in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. “It's the same with prayer,” Dr. Bob said. “We get on our knees to unload at night. And in the morning when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day.”
