Today is the anniversary of the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous. May God grant serenity to those who still suffer.
Learning how to live in the greatest peace, partnership, and brotherhood
with all men and women, of whatever description,
is a moving and fascinating adventure.
~ Bill W., co-founder of AA
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
