You know the one...
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.
The part about accepting the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference has always been hard for me. But I have made a vow to myself to try a little bit harder to figure out the difference and to accept those things I deem unchangeable. No matter how badly I want to change them or they need to be changed for the sake of others.
Can I get an amen!
