THE SERENITY PRAYER

God, Grant me the Serenity
to Accept the things
I cannot change,
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 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.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~




The New Ten Commandents

1. Thou shall not worry,
for worry is the most unproductive
of all human activities.
2. Thou shall not be fearful, 
for most of the things we fear
never come to pass.

3. Thou shall not cross bridges
before you come to them, 
for no one yet has succeeded
 in accomplishing this.

4. Thou shall face each problem as it comes. 
You can only handle one at a time anyway.

5. Thou shall not take problems
 to bed with you, 
for they make very poor bedfellows.

6. Thou shall not borrow other people's problems. 
They can better care for them than you can.

7. Thou shall not try to relive yesterday
 for good or ill, it is forever gone.
Concentrate on what is happening in your life
and be happy now!
8. Thou shall be a good listener,
for only when you listen
do you hear different ideas from your own.
It is hard to learn something new when you are talking,
and some people do know more than you do.

9. Thou shall not become "bogged down" by frustration,
for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity 
and will only interfere with positive action.

10. Thou shall count thy blessings,
never overlooking the small ones,
for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.

The This is Not intended in Any Way to
minimize God's Commandments!

May God grant you always ...

The A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel
So nothing can harm you,

Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you.

And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.

You'll Never Walk Alone


When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

You'll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

You'll never walk alone
