“HOW CAN WE EXPECT RIGHTEOUSNESS TO PREVAIL WHEN THERE IS HARDLY ANYONE WILLING TO GIVE THEIR-SELF UP INDIVIDUALLY TO A RIGHTEOUS CAUSE? SUCH A FINE SUNNY DAY, AND I HAVE TO GO, BUT WHAT DOES MY DEATH MATTER, IF THROUGH US THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE AWAKENED AND STIRRED TO ACTION?”
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
It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.
If it is right, pursue it with all of your heart, your skill, and your grit.
If in the end we are but dust and vapor, then may our dust be fertile and our vapor pure. May we grace gardens and orchards and coastlines. May we intertwine and find each others atoms in the fruit that grows, the flowers that bloom, the waves that crash. May we seek out trade winds to travel to new homes, and make the earth good and whole again. May we bring life.
The stars in the sky glimmer with the hopes of reflecting in your eyes.
Generations have sped past, worlds formed and civilizations were built and conquered.
All just passing time to wait for the day you arrive, you look at me, and you smile.
