Stop and Rest

 Day Ten –  lent challenge – challenges  

Stop and Rest

A sore throat – garden to water
Head that aches and throbs – dog that needs grooming
Body tired and needing to rest – washing to hang out
Eyes that don’t want to focus – plants that need watering
Wheezy exhausted – emails to answer
Bed warm and comforting – sun shinning garden calling
Sleep and rest – learn to stop
Stop – you are no good to anyone ill
Relax – delicate
Challenge myself to stop and rest .


The Serenity Prayer

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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.

(prayer attributed to Reinhold Neibuhr, 1892-1971)
