Poem: The Serenity Prayer

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;  
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;  
Accepting hardships 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. 

Reinhold Niebuhr
