Faith practice journal

For my ‘A’ contract I need to turn in my faith practice journal.

The syllabus said to do so via the blog. Since I did my journaling in a notebook (a particular notebook that helps me find release), I will work over the next few days to turn those notes into a presentation on my blog. Below is an idea of the bizarre methods (blurred at the moment) of journaling I have done while practicing the Thomas Merton Book of Hours, as well as the journal I use.

Serenity

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.
