    ( The Complete )

    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. Amen.

    we should do the lot cuase it jabs on about ODAAT.... but we dont and i wonder why that is. maybe it mentions this next life to much for out 'spirituality' lable. ,,,, hmmmm can a next life be spirituality based? or is it then religious.. who knows,, who really cares,, its not going to change anything.
    What do Recovery Realm and a rubber duck have in common?
    They both keep you company when you're getting clean.

    Thank you so much for the post. I never knew that there was more to the serenity prayer than what we say at meetings. I think I would have to agree with duckling. It would be a great thing for us to use the whole serenity prayer as it is very fitting to alcoholic/addicts in recovery. Again Thank you so much.

    Amen. I'm offering this prayer to my daughter who is struggling with addiction. She's currently staying with my mom in Tennessee. I'm praying that alcohol abuse rehab programs will respond to her well. I love my daughter, please pray for her recovery.
