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;

So that I may be reasonably

happy in this life

And supremely happy with Him

Forever and ever in the next.

      I love music boxes. I have a special one that my MIL gave me. This lens is lovely. I learned about music boxes, but also about the serenity prayer, I had only ever heard the first three lines. Interesting.

      I've always loved music boxes and Elliot makes some of the most beautiful ones around. You might also like The San Francisco Music Box Company. They do more of the traditional one with gorgeous wooden boxes and complex mechanisms.

      You just brought back sweet memories for me of how Shelly and I saw music boxes in a shop in International falls as children and chose a blue metal box with jewels on top to save our allowance for. We were so plased with our purchase and I inherited the box when we were older. You have chosen some beauties to show here! Nicely done and a pleasure to visit!
