After having been at a retreat for several days, I realized that I needed to get back to my Alcoholics Anonymous and Club 24 roots. I decided to let nature guide me on an hour-long walk through the woods, which helped me see the beauty of creation, of God as I know him, and of natures peace. While walking, I pulled out a card from my wallet with the third step printed on its face. It was then I decided to not just read words from a card, but to memorize and live by the third step words. Alcoholics Anonymous is not just a book of principles, but it is a way of life in itself.
