Reinhold Niebuhr Quote: “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.

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.
