2011.03.02 Serenity Prayer for Today—and Tomorrow

Today's version of the Serenity Prayer, aka Lyn trapped in a den and din of words, trying to sort, sift, order, disorder, love and hate—and all in order to write an intimate letter to strangers! (That’s what writer Pico Iyer called writing and I call memoir writing.) Sheesh. 

God, grant me the serenity to hate my life
the courage to love what I hate
and the wisdom to know the goddamn difference. 

AMEN

Lyn,
As someone who says the Serenity prayer on a regular basis, I absolutely love your version of it! So funny and true.

Peace and blessings,
Leslie
