Sunday Inspiration: Serenity

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

Reinhold Niebuhr

There is such deep wisdom in this simple prayer.  Participants in Alcoholics Anonymous have used these words for many years to help them achieve sobriety, but they can help all of us cope with change and chaos in our lives.

Moments of serenity?  Moments to reconsider your path through life?  What a wonderful prayer to begin the process.
