A prayer for wisdom and serenity
Tuesday, October 08, 2013
The Chinese characters on my Spark background have a meaning - Serenity.
Serenity is a state of mind. Calm. Peaceful. Tranquil. Unruffled.
Well, I'm not calm. I am decidedly ruffled right now.
The people we have elected to govern our country are playing a dangerous brinksmanship game with our national economy, and it has to end.
So, here is my simple prayer.
Lord, give our elected leaders in Washington the wisdom to set aside their petty games an do their jobs.
Grant me the serenity to let go of the fear and worry their actions have put on my heart, and trust that my family will thrive, no matter the political landscape.
