To accept the things I cannot change; 
Courage to change the things I can; 
And wisdom to know the difference. 

faithFaith In Myself - Marjorie Holmes
God gave me faith in myself,
not only on days when I'm going great and winning
and nothing seems impossible
but on days when the whole world looks lousy
and I'm losing and the road ahead seems too hard.
When I wonder if I'm brave enough, smart enough
and I must be crazy to try,
don't let me quit Lord, not ever.
