Serenity Prayer


God, 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.


It's Sunday and this prayer popped into my head.  
My mother used to recite it whenever she hit a bump in the road. 
Since she hung it up in my father's study, I wonder now if it was he that she needed help with (wink), or any of her three children.

This post is not about sewing, it's about living with grace.
Whatever your denomination, today I wish you all peace.

These are very powerful words which are so true. They can be quite comforting as well. A psychologist I know uses them alot with her clients.
