Cooperate With The Inevitable

"God grant me this serenity to accept the things that I cannot change...
courage to change the things I can...
and the WISDOM to know the difference."

- Reinhold Niebuhr

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 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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.

- William Spence
