December 17, 2012 Round One: I am tentatively beginning to feel this power, and without conjuring up magical images. It is not anything that can be described in words, it can only be felt and experienced.
Maybe I should be holding myself back. Although I do not feel Knowledge is holding me back. I can always feel the power of God if I still my mind and allow it to sidestep all confusion and doubt.
P.S. It is interesting that I am revisiting this Step today on February 9, 2017, the day my husband and I went to the registry office in Moscow and officially sealed our bond twenty-four years ago in 1993. I remember choosing the Romeo and Juliet picture for this Step because I was reflecting on my relationship with my husband the day I did it for the second time. I often think of our relationship as my weak link, but is it? (“You will not go any further than the weakest relationship that you cherish.”) We are still together against all odds, through thick and thin. This is still my food for thought today.
P.P.P.S. Another year has passed. It is February 9, 2020. And what I said last year holds ever truer today.
