Seeking Serenity



God, grant me serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and
Wisdom to know the difference.

The unrelenting stress continues from all sides. Though this blog is a joy for me and I will endeavor to read your blogs, I must go on leave. For those of you who are praying folks, pray for me. For those who aren't, think well of me. This is an unbelievably tough time.

Muffie said...

You are in my prayers, and I will storm heaven that you get rid of these stressful problems and receive peace.

Thank you, all. Your words, which I have read many times today, bring tears to my eyes. Your loving support means a great deal.

Judy my thoughts are with you. Your words have brought me sanity when I needed it and fed me food for thought when I needed that. ... and made Patti laugh!

Thank you while you find what you need.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Patrick, I can't think of any greater compliment of my poems than their having made Patti laugh.

This too shall pass. If I had a dime for every time my mind has said that to me, but it was always true. (( ))

Judy at Peace Be With You said...

Diane, I keep hoping. I seem though to keep accumulating dimes. Hopefully soon I will be able to cash them in.

Judy -- It has been quite some time since I've written on my own blogsite -- I've been going through months of difficulty and just today went online to your site to reconnect. I was shocked to turn to your blog today and find that you are going through some very difficult times. i am sending you my best thoughts and wishes. Like so many people, I will be wondering how you are doing and wishing, wishing for only good things for you.

Judy at Peace Be With You said...

writingms, I am sorry you too have been going through a rough time. In my case, things have eased a bit which only means the Richter scale is at a 7.5 instead of a 9. I too send you my best thoughts and wishes.

Tina said...

Just sending you a note of love and encouragement, Judy <3 I pray that the Lord has been renewing and strengthening you, dear sister in Christ...

Judy at Peace Be With You said...

Tina, thank you so much for your love and encouragement. And your prayers.

I am stopping by to say hello...you are missed in the blogworld. I hope you are getting better nowadays

Judy at Peace Be With You said...

Kim, thanks for stopping by. I actually miss my blog, but am holding myself back from restarting. I need to rest more than anything. While the number of balls in the air has diminished, my MS also kicked in. The stress has taken its toll. So ... I need to continue resting for the near future. Thanks for your concern.

Laura said...
