    Prayer Of Acceptance

    God grant me the seranity to accept
    the things I cannot change,
    The courage to change the things
    I can, and the wisdom to know
    the difference

    Amen.

    This is a Prayer by St. Francis Of Assissi.

    I wanted to share it with you all.

    God Bless,
    Mary

    I have this printed out and leave it on my piano where I see it often. I wish I were better at following it. Wishing you good things Mary.

    Is finally saying, "Thy will be done, not my will be done." We are so busy making our plans and trying to be in control that is is very difficult for us to admit there are some things over which we have no control. When we have the wisdom to see this, we can go with the flow and find new creative ways to give meaning to our lives.

    I used to date a recovering alcoholic and attended some meetings. They say this prayer at every meeting.

    Love, Mikie

    Thank You so much for sharing this wonderful prayer with all of us. This is one of my favorite prayers.

    Just because there is something in life we cannot change (whether temporary or permanent), doesn't mean we have to live in darkness.

    This prayer was passed on to me by my Father many years ago,after he had quit drinking and had joined AA. I was so blessed to have 18 years of my Dad being sober and getting to know like a real Dad. He passed away in 1995, but I think of him each day and thank the Lord for all the great memories My Dad and I got to share. Bless you Mary.
