OA BLOG 2019

May 5, 2019

Oh Yeah! The blog is back! I had a great retreat and listened to an awesome speaker who had a unique approach to her program and enlisted in lots of ladies to help bring back the blog.I want to make sure that something is always on here but I need lots of help. I gave out my email address out at the retreat and I should also say put OA BLOG in the subject. I got several emails and cards in my lovely basket.

If you’ve never been to the OA retreat it is a a wonderful location at the Jesuit Spirituality Center in Grand Coteau, Louisiana which is near Lafayette.  The location is peaceful and surrounded by greenery. One nice lady sent me a picture and I know my twin takes pics every time we go so perhaps I can persuade her to post some pics on the blog.

Some comments I got:


“This is  my second time at our OA retreat and I’m glad I came. I encourage everyone to make one OA retreat. It will really enhance  your recovery!”


“Important take aways from the retreat 1) Abstinence is when I’m surrendered my food. Recovery is when I work the steps. 2) Pause and be mindful! 3) Practice stillness. 4) There is always enough time to do God’s will. 5) I cannot recover in isolation. 6) If I don’t know what to do, I can work on my relationship with my Higher Power. 7) Am I kind and loving toward all including myself? 8) Unconscious eating is an expression of my lack of conscious contact with God.
