Acceptance


(photo courtesy of  Sir Samuel J. Butcher)

It is sometimes difficult


 to accept things 
as they are and
 it is so easy to be in denial.


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.
Amen.

--Reinhold Niebuhr





 ~ You have to accept
 whatever comes 
and the only important
 thing is that 
you meet it with courage 
and with the best
 that you have to give. ~
