April 14, 2010

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.


  1. I memorized the full version after a speaker at an open AA meeting shared it as part of her story. It has been a blessing to me in times of distress and mental confusion. Thank you for posting it.


  2. Have a lovely and productive day.
    If you so choose.

  3. I am so grateful that I have those words to turn to when things get difficult. Really needed this today. Thanks!

  4. I like the full length version too. Nice to read it here.
