I feel helpless; I have felt helpless; I know I am helpless; but, I try; I get involved; I worry; I distance myself; I cry; I write; I fuss; I fume; I become angry; I cry; I have no answers; I have no power, but I think I do; I try to forget it and put it out of my mind; It’s not my business; but isn’t it? Am I my brother’s keeper? I don’t think so; but I want the best for all my brothers and sisters-shouldn’t I?
Two people are better than one.
They get more done by working together.
If one person falls,
the other can help him up.
But it is bad for the person who is alone when he falls.
No one is there to help him. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 International Children’s Bible
I may be helpless; but I am not hopeless! A friend sent the following to me today. It spoke to me; it reminded me from whom all help comes; I can’t-but with God-all things are possible!

The Serenity Prayer
The full text of the original Serenity Prayer written by Reinhold Niebuhr 1926
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.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship 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
