AA has saved many lives, but it has also given us a prayer that has saved many a soul.

The serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
I think we could all use a healthy dose of serenity right now. I certainly have been thinking and praying about peace, contentment, and that the final puzzle piece be found to the 1000 piece puzzle I call life.
I know serenity exists. Its in the voice I hear during meditation, its in the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains that Suzy and I went to because we both needed to just get away even, and its in the smells of honeysuckle and the memory of burning leaves when I was young.
(Sometime I will try to convince you that if we only went back to burning leaves as opposed to leaf blowers and big green bags the world would be a better place, but that’s for  another day.)
Serenity is out there, or should I say is inside us all. We merely need to search for it deep down inside where the Holy Spirit resides.
