IN OTHER WORDS


God grant me the serenity 
to accept the people I cannot change, 
the courage to change the one I can, 
and the wisdom to know it's ME.

I really like this variation of the prayer. I need to remember it every day.

Hi Karin, Is that YOU in the picture???? I have a feeling it is... Great picture.... That statement is hard, isn't it????? My best friend and I are kinda on the "OUTS" now because she has made some choices and decisions that I disapprove of. I love her --but I can't change her... It hurts!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Betsy, it's not such a clear shot, but yes, that was me last Christmas!This was an anonymous quote I found and thought it was definitely necessary for me to remember that! God is still at work changing me - I can't seem to do it myself!
