..GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY ...
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CAN NOT CHANGE
THE COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS
I CAN
AND THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
 
. . . living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
                 taking this sinful world as it is, 
not as I would have it;
trusting that you will make all things right
 if I surrender to Your Will;
    so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
              and supremely happy with you forever in the next.

               Many people spend their days in anger
 and aren't aware of it.

         The conditions of work and life make
 many of us angry;
we feel powerless to change them,
and our frustration angers us more...

If we examine our lives fearlessly,
               we may find many things that are
 in our power to change.
Since we cannot change,
or do not choose to change some things,
we'd do well to accept them,
           instead of spinning our wheels
 in unproductive anger
or turning the anger in,
against ourselves

And when we summon the courage to change 
the things we can,
our lives will bless us.

I been dealing with some anger this week,
I came across this on the net just now
and thought I would share it.
It is so true if we choose to follow it.
peace and God bless ......ds
