Serenity


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 . . . accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.

Taking, as He did, this 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.
