Just a bit o something that I've been thinking about and going through these past few weeks I was out. It's mostly rambling, though.

In the chapter "We Agnostics", Bill W. and Dr Bob wrote the following:
"We finally saw that faith in some kind of God was part of our make-up, just as much as the feeling we have for a friend. Sometimes we had to search fearlessly, but He was there."
And to that, I wrote this:
So, even if I cannot fully comprehend him, god is still there showing me the way. And even if I cannot fully give my faith he's there with no strings attached. I can't say that about any human I know, with the possible exception of my children.
I have faith that every day when I pull up to the school, my children will be there. And I have faith that when I'm driving down the road, the person next to me will stay in their lane and not drive me off the road. But yet, I can't seem to find a blind faith in god. What is it with our spirituality? Where does it get so warped? I don't even know what my conception of god is anymore. When I started the program and chose my "god" and what I needed him to "be", I thought I knew all the answers I needed. I even did a character sketch of god, three pages worth. And, ten years later, he's not that "character" anymore. He's not the same god to me. What do I do with that?
