You Can’t Control

January 17, 2022

Stephanie Vozza, at Fast, says this —

With the roll out of the vaccine, a light at the end of the tunnel seemed to get closer.

Then came the delta variant and now omicron.

One habit that you may need to break is recognizing that you can’t control what’s going to happen with the pandemic, says Ethan Kross, author of Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It.

— which reminds me of this —

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.

— which is used in a variety of groups, and can be found on a lot of refrigerators and bulletin boards, has even made its way into our current United Methodist Hymnal, and is traceable back to Reinhold Niebuhr.

And which is well worth you and me holding onto this week.
