Dancing in the Dark


“I learned inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic,
striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we
must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime
it with a little solitude and idleness.” – Brenda Ueland

“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.

-The Serenity Prayer
