“The Way of Serenity” Day 5


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change

“Work as if everything depended on you, and pray as if everything depended on God.” -Ignatius of Loyola

“The serenity we seek arises partly from knowing that we have done all we can and the rest is up to God. There is a true peace of soul that comes over us when we have put forth our best effort. Like a farmer who has tilled his field and sown his seed. He can now sit back to wait for the crops to grow. When we have done our part we can rest with the assurance that the fruits of our labors ultimately depend on God. A life with God can be conceived as a collaborative effort, a joint venture, with God always the major business partner who works alongside us, and makes up for our deficiencies.” Page 28



About connieszone

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
