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 rightif I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.
I keep stressing about things I can't do anything about. To the point that I spend every waking moment obsessing over it all. I asked Justin what he thought I spent 95 percent of my day thinking about...he said Cole...I said no...he said the new baby...I said no. Its about all this stress that I can't fix. That was an eye opener. Why worry about others when I have the MOST amazing husband and son to worry about. MY family needs to be my first concern. And right now they are in 2nd place. Not anymore!
I love the serenity prayer...it fits me today!
