Alpha Post

Sometimes life comes at you hard. It's your reaction to these tough situations that matter most. Instead of reacting right away, take time and process the situation. It usually helps to have a little talk with God. In the end, you will find that serenity, courage, and wisdom will get you through any situation. It is with this modus operandi that I initiate my alpha post.

The Serenity Prayer
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;
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.

-Reinhold Neibuhr
