Serenity and Beyond

April 17, 2018

You’ll know this first part, I hope —

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.

— Yup, that’s The Serenity Prayer.  Reminds me of something Tammy Pfrang wrote and let me share here with you yesterday: “Make a choice and make a move to change the things in your life that you can!”

Pop Quiz:

1) What is there you need to start to accept today?

2) What is there you need to start to change today?

Don’t rush too quickly past those two questions; you’re worth the time and effort your answers will take.

I hope the rest of The Serenity Prayer seasons both your acceptance and your changes — 

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.

— Somebody say Amen, and let’s meet back here tomorrow.
