    I found this on Wes


    (long version)

    God, grant me the Serenity
    to accept the things

    Taking, as He did, this
    sinful world as it is,

    surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy
    in this life, and supremely
    happy with Him forever ..

    Self-seeking slipped away.

    My whole attitude and outlook upon life ..
