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.
Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr

Praying for your hearts and for you to sense God's love for you and Anchise. And for His protection for her.

Yes, there's a good reason that this prayer became a "classic." I feel your pain in these posts, and I just hate it for you, Stephanie. I pray He will wrap you in His comforting arms today and show you just how very, very good and loving He is.

My heart is just so sad for you. Praying that God will give you peace through this heavy, heavy sadness.

Oh Stephanie
She is so precious. I'm so so sorry. I desperately wish this hadn't happened.
In Him, Laura

Praying for all of you.
