For all...

Post by Jace » 1 week ago

During these times..

Grant me the ability
To accept the things
I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can
And
The wisdom to know the difference.

Substitute serenity for ability and you have " the serenity prayer" used in 12 step programs.

I’m sorry but I was wrong; the serenity prayer was written by a theologian in the fifties! I thought I read it in the Bible! It’s one of my favorite prayers! I googled it 😋. Should have done that first.
