The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the


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.


He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Nancy, his brother, Charles Greene and his in laws Lester & Rose Bue.
