The Serenity Prayer

My good friend sent me this very familiar prayer yesterday.  I of course knew it was the Serenity Prayer by the first sentence, but soon realized that is all I knew.  She said it changed her life, and I know why.  I have a feeling it could change some of yours as well.  So I urge you. Print this off put it up where each morning you can read this to start your day.  What a beautiful reminder to start your morning.  Blessings this weekend my friends!

God, give me 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.
