The Camel - AA, Alcoholics Anonymous Recovery Medallion
Truly a unique Wooden recovery Medallion!
The camel is a special symbol to members of Alcoholics Anonymous! This beautiful Alder wood token is laser engraved with a friendly Camel and the number 24 (number of hours in one day) on one side and the following text on the opposite side :
"The camel each day goes twice to his knees.
He picks up his load with the greatest of ease.
He walks through the day with his head held high.
And stays for that day, completely dry."
The Camel teaches us spiritual principles: Prayer, Faith, Spirituality, and Sobriety Ã± One Day At A Time!
Dr Bob, physician, and a cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous - "...would explain prayer by telling how the camels in a caravan would kneel down in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. ÃItÃs the same with prayer,Ã Dr. Bob said. ÃWe get on our knees to unload at night. And in the morning when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day.Ã" Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers (1980), page 229
CAMEL PRAYER "The tasks of the day can pass with ease when a camel or I start on our knees. One Master we serve, the camel and I, and stay for that day completely dry."
