Serenity Prayer

O God and Heavenly Father,
Grant to us the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed; courage to change that which can be changed, and wisdom to know the one from the other, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
- Reinhold Niebuhr

I find I keep coming back to this prayer over the last couple of months.


Because I'm a 'fixer'...I try to fix or make everything okay. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes, well...I'd be better off talking to a brick wall.

I've always been this way...the more I try to change that aspect of myself, the more I find myself 'fixing' things.

So, I'm working on the WISDOM part of the prayer because Lord knows I need to if I'm going to make it through the next months/years and then maybe the Serenity will follow.
