Serenity Prayer - Reinhold Niebuhr

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.



  1. Amen. Happy Thanksgiving to you!!!

  2. I hope you had a lovely thanksgiving, Karen. We don't celebrate it in the land down under, but we wished hubby's parents a happy one too :)

  3. How are you ? Just checking in. Have a great Easter. And yes I did have a lovely thanksgiving.
