I have the first part of the Serenity Prayer posted in my home. I heard the second part for the first time a few years ago, and really find it helpful to "take things as they are" and remember where my true happiness is. Thanks so much for sharing it.

If you google serenity prayer, a bunch of neat things come up, including the origins of the prayer. The original was worded a little different, and it is the official prayer of Alcoholics Anonomyous. I love the part about accepting hardship as a way to peace. We cannot run from our problems with food, drink or drugs and grow spiritually. We have to hang in there and bear our crosses and then we grow spiritually.

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Amen. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God. :)

Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Failures keep You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only God keeps You Going!
Amen!!
