God Grant Me The Serenity


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship 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.

When things are especially difficult, this is almowst my mantra. It is a good thing to be reminded I am not alone, and if I will allow it the toughest times do get better
