Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?
 
Quote
Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
~Adair Lara~
 
Meditation
Make it your purpose to give of what you have…even if it’s just a smile to brighten another’s’ day, or a helping hand to lift someone up in their time of need.  When your focus is turned outward, and your attentions are toward meeting the needs of others, you will find that in your giving, you yourself lack for nothing.
 
Thought for the day
Have I really changed any since I walked through the doors of this fellowship or am I still about me?  Do I attend meetings to get a shot of sobriety that will last me till the next meeting I attend or have I grown spiritually to the point I am mindful of those I can reach out to?  Do I attend meetings to talk about my stuff and hope to get answers to my personal dilemmas or do I speak about recovery for all?  Do I exit meetings right after the bell?  Do I make sure to only give a dollar so I can fulfill my obligation or do I give according to what IÕve received?  How about sharing my treasure?  Am I about my 2nd or 3rd home, my Volvo, Lexus, my office with all the latest gizmos, my blue ray video collection and my 50Ó, 60Ó, 70Ó or 80Ó digital TV?  Am I a taker or a giver? God already knows the answerÉ.do I?
 
Scriptures
If you give to others, you will be given a full amount in return.  It will be packed down, shaken together, and spilling over into your lap.  The way you treat others is the way you will be treated.   ~Jesus – Luke 6:38 (CEV)~
 
[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings.  Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, "prompt to do it") giver [whose heart is in his giving]. ~2 Corinthians 9:6,7

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
