Grant Loved One the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, (the past);
the courage to change the things they can, (the future);
and the wisdom to know the difference, (this present moment).
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as the pathway to their inner peace.
Taking, as You did, this sinful world as it is, not as Loved One believes it should be.
Trusting that You will make all things right if Loved One surrenders to Your will;
That they may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
