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.

I woke up this morning with this prayer on my mind. So, I decided to post it for I feel it speaks to the times we are living.
I have no power to change what is happening, so I must just relax.
I need to learn just to live one day at time.
I am trying to accept these hard times so that I can find peace during them.
Those are just some added thoughts that I am feeling at this moment.
So dear reader, maybe you do not believe in prayer, but maybe try to find a way to apply the perspectives found in the Serenity Prayer.
For all the rest I would encourage you to stop and say the Serenity Prayer. I hope in doing so that you will find peace flow throughout you today!
