God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
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.
Reinhold Niebuhr 1892-1971
