Thank You mamac! I have been in recovery for 6 years. When I first started a twelve step program I was an atheist. Now I know that there is a Power Greater than I. Just recently I started again at the first step. Admitting my problem. I agree that it is necessary to follow them in order too. Thank YOU for your words of wisdom.

To me: God is everything beautiful: Love, light, mercy, beautiful, smart, wise, sympathetic, empathetic, funny, helpful, understanding, tasteful, wonderful, counsellor, trustworthy, honest, keeps His promises, rich, forgving, Father, best friend, amazing, beyond description or explanation, awesome, warm, romantic...

I am still in the process of discovering HIM...every day.

Thanks for sharing your prayer mamac!

Thanks for sharing your positive belief as of today with me Ras!

I know with certainty a Higher Power exists and is there for me. I know that I will be guided if I open myself up to the universe.

I am truly amazed that the people on this thread are so willing to share with me something so personal. I appreciate that no views were forced on anyone and that we are all allowed to believe as we may. It is a spiritual awakening for me to know that God can be present if we believe.

It wouldn't surprise me if there is a God. If it turns out there isn't that would shock me either.

Still when I look at the pieces that are laying around, I get this feeling of "hey you could make a God out of that." It's that whole big bang thing that makes me suspicious.

My guess is that God is an omnipresent mind. That would be "his" main characteristic. Everywhere. Forever.

____Letters to God end up in ocean, unread_____

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Some of the letters are comical (a man asking God to let him win the lottery, twice), others are heartbreaking (a distraught teen asking forgiveness for an abortion, an unwed mother pleading with God to make the baby's father marry her). The letters — about 300 in all, sent to a New Jersey minister — ended up dumped in the ocean, most of them unopened.

I wonder - Is the creative potential in human beings that is the image of "god"?
