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 worldas it is, not as I would have it; 

Trusting that He will make all things rightif I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with HimForever in the next


                                   Trust in the LORD with all your heart
                                   and lean not on your own understanding;
                                   in all your ways acknowledge him,
                                  and he will direct your paths.
                                       Proverbs 3, 5-6

                             --by Reinhold Niebuhr
