Just For Today

2021 has started off to be somewhat rough. In March 2021 my only brother, Harold L. Able Jr., was in a fatal car accident; God saw fit to bring him home. To say I am devastated would be a massive understatement but I also know that my brother’s life had a major impact on many people - God used him mightily.   Throughout many of his adult years he struggled with drug addiction. I watched his struggle and the tug-of-war he would often engage in until he was able to fully surrender his struggle over to God. When he did, I watched his life blossom in a way that allowed him to help others who suffered with addiction. He became a Peer Recovery Counselor and jumped in head first in leading others to recovery.   One of the things that happens in N.A./A.A. meetings is rewards for the amount of days someone has been clean.   As you can see from the picture above the various colors represent Clean & Serene for:   Purple = 6 months Red = 90 days Green = 60 days Orange = 30 days White = Just fo

Girrrl! 2020 was indeed a noteworthy year - quite unforgettable! It was a year like none we had ever seen before. I have to admit, I’m a bit of a wordsmith but I had never heard the word ‘pandemic’ prior to 2020. A new word was introduced to me last year as well as a new way of life. We had to quarantine, wear masks and isolate ourselves from others which for many people turned out to be an arduous task. When we would come out with masks on, it was still stressful because you never know who could be among you with the virus as many carriers are asymptomatic. This level of not knowing, uncertainty caused angst for people that eventually led to fear. We were now in a place that we could not even imagine before: not being able to hug loved ones, not seeing our friends, not attending church services, and just being in isolation.   As the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 1:9, “…there’s nothing new under the sun”. When I think of quarantine and isolation my mind goes to the lepers. Lepers were qua
