Serenity Sunday, October's First

The last of the little Impatiens.
 As I consider the importance of having a day of Serenity, my thoughts automatically drift to nature. As Summer is closing on us I will miss the beauty of my Coleus. The most stunning I have ever grown, these are about three feet high, did not send up flower spikes and have remained full and hardy in intense heat and periodic downpours. The colors are so intense that they overshadow everything around them. However, they are like sentinels who guard the quiet and peace of the garden, therefore, Serenity.

We have spider webs, everywhere.

Welcome border.
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 Niebuhr
