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;

that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.

I fume and I fume and I fume against it until I realize that fuming is fruitless, the situation doesn’t and hasn’t changed and there is nothing I can do in and of myself to change a situation. I believe this is when God wants you to give it to Him. Let it go. There are certain things that we were not made to carry. Jesus said,:
