The Serenity Prayer

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.


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

What I am thankful for today:
The ones who accept me for who I am
my children
new opportunities and endless possibilities
positive attitudes
hearing from random people that I am a pleasure to be around because no matter what, I am always smiling!
knowing that life is too short to walk around with a frown
