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.

Easter colors! Christ Jesus has risen 🙂
from my religion class homework essay prompt excerpt…
“… At the same time,with my church doctrine considering it as a sin, I have been forced into a moral dilemma – to follow what I believe is right or to follow what others have figured from their analyzation of the Bible. After reading many articles about homosexuality and a couple controversial experiments that say that homosexuality is genetic rather than something that we can figure out by ourselves, I feel necessary to move away from the church in that sense to my own view. This, of course, brings into conflict with how should I go from here? What is my faith? I feel myself moving away from the general acceptance of everything that the church has taught me to feeling myself once again burdened with waves of doubt. Is it ever possible to truly, truly believe in God? Or am I only acting myself?…”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, submit to him, and He will make your path straight.
