Serenity Prayer

Not much to say today because I have such horrible allergies. Tonight at CR I get to do the Serenity Prayer, which is one of my favorite (and shortest, and easiest to remember…) CR traditions:

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.
