Probably John, exacerbated by too little exercise.
I always was an 'economy of effort' man 😉 and I get bored to death doing exercises for exercise's sake😤
Didn't last a month at the fitness centre.
Was bad for my blood pressure - all those pretty ladies in tight shorts 😲
Re St Francis; sure he knew a thing or two, but apparently there are no sources to attribute that wisdom to him.
Mine is one of the more popular variants of the Serenity Prayer, by the American Protestant theologian Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr in 1942.
Being an agnostic I removed the God reference (was only arrogant enough to say atheist in my youth😉) Cheers, Doug 😎
Sorry to hear the wheels fell off your chair 😱
You just can't get quality these days can you!?😁
The original Serenity Prayer-
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
if I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Full version of the original (ca. 1942)
Amazing where a mundane topic like wire can lead!! (No pun intended🤔)
