Please pray for my Bonnie – what Lorraine said today

This group is very spiritual. They love to pray and sing hymns. Some of their thoughts today:

Trisha, please pray for my daughter Bonnie. She has four daughters and she is only 46. She has leukemia and is very ill.

My grandson, Brian needs prayers, too.

How about the military men and women, we should pray for  them, too.

I would like to say the Serenity Prayer that I learned when I was in AA, a 12 step program.  I did not have a very happy life. Never knew my father. He left the day I was born. When I was 21-years-old, my mother told me who my father was. I never met him. I wasn’t able to even think about how I would handle if he didn’t want to meet me.  It hurt so that he left me when I was just born. I had a great earthly mother and a wonderful Heavenly Father who is my best friend. How about if I say the Serenity Prayer and then everyone will be able to  repeat the words after me?

The Serenity
Prayer
Path God 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;
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.
Amen.

–Reinhold

In
loving memory of
Fr Bertram Griffin — 1932-2000
Requiescat in
Pace

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your
own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct
your paths.

Proverbs 3, 5-6
