December 31 Reflection of the Day
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 – living one day at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking this world-full-of-wrongs as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that my Higher Power will make all things right if I surrender my willfulness to a Divine Will.
Do I strive above all for those qualities – serenity – courage – and wisdom – that form the cornerstone of my new life?
Today I Pray
May I look back at this past year as a good one, in that nothing I did or said was wasted. No experience – however insignificant it may have seemed – was worthless. Hurt gave me the capacity to feel happiness; bad times made me appreciate the good ones; what I regarded as my weaknesses became my greatest strengths, I thank God for a year of growing.
Today I Will Remember
Hope is my “balance brought forward” – into a new years ledger.
