Serenity

Merry Christmas and may God bless everyone in the coming year…

The following prayer came to mind this morning and I thought it would be appropriate for so many reasons…  Many are in despair throughout the holidays and some are just going crazy and killing people for reasons beyond our comprehension… 

May they understand the meaning of serenity and accept what cannot be changed even if they tried… 

Lit Angel

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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.

Amen.
