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.
Psalm 30: 11-12 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
