This EASTER season I have been focusing on the Serenity Prayer.
I’m sure you’ve heard the first couple of lines a million times…
but have you read this prayer in its entirety?
God, grant me
The serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can;
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 this this life, and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
I hope that the miracle of this season shines in your heart today and always.
P.S. Friends and family– can you guess which kid this is?
