THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Jette Black and Her Seven Friends”

Kortnie Carter of Los Angeles, California, says, “Jette Black and Her Seven Friends is an excellent story because it lets children know that they don’t have to be ashamed or try to hide who they are just because they might be tall, overweight, or because of their ethnic background. They can grow up to be what they want to be.  And not let other people get in their way of getting a good education. Very Inspiring!!!!”

TODAY’S QUOTE

PLEASURE IN THE JOB PUTS PERFECTION IN THE WORK.

TODAY’S BLOG

We should always remember the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr:

 

God, grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And the wisdom to know the difference.

 

What does it mean?

Serenity” is calmness.  So, we are asking for calmness in our spirit or soul so that we can accept what we cannot change.  As I see it, the main thing that we cannot change is other people.  Only they can do that.  We can tell them what we see in their behavior, but they have to make the change.  We’re asking for courage to change what we can.  We can change the way we think and act—if we’re shown good reason to do so.  Wisdom to know the difference keeps us from wasting our time in fighting losing battles; enables us to choose wisely.

What do YOU think?
