Peace Starts With You

Peace Starts With You

I just heard some bad news about my niece from a close family friend. Although the news is bad, the result was good. The outcome could have been worse than it was. I'm an ultra-sensitive person, so I experience a lot of emotion, so much at times that it can be disabling. I'm choosing right now to have peace. All I can do now is pray.

The Serenity Prayer

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.

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;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
