In Need of Serenity...

Sometimes someone sends you something that is serendipitous in timing. I have been less than serene for the past few weeks and today has been quite wobbly, Michelle Styles sent me this and it hit the spot. Still wobbly but working towards serene, I figure even if you don't believe there is still a message there.


The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.
