Serenity Now...

I often find myself at work reciting the classic Seinfeld line "Serenity now!" as well as the Serenity Prayer, "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change..." Now as I think about it, they kind of contradict each other. I of course being the controlling, detail oriented, I want it "my way" type of person just wants "Serenity now!" but the latter is probably something I should work towards.

The Serenity Prayer:
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.
--Reinhold Niebuhr

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3, 5-6

Whats new with me
  • Job #3 is done....the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes survived the trip from my place to their destination. Even with highway travel, incorrect Google map directions, the heat, gravel roads....a literal trip to the boonies: aka Booneville (sorry if I offended anyone that lives there, but when you are trying to transport cupcakes with buttercream frosting on a hot and humid day...Booneville is the boonies).

  • I treated myself to a new and fab cup from Starbucks today! LOVE IT! Doesn't it look like the real cups they give you??!! It's insulated and will be perfect for my homemade Grande Skinny Iced Caramel Macchiato.
  • Looking forward to next weekend and helping my friend's from Ephemera Stationary Studio out by passing out free cookies at the Des Moines Downtown Farmer's Market... so if anyone is around next weekend, come see me and get a cookie :)

  • I am weirdly excited to go grocery shopping tomorrow. I don't think I have cooked a meal in about 2-3 weeks. That = a lot of eating out. Sure I have been baking A LOT, but an actual yea its been a while. Example: Exhibit A below...super late dinner...and when I say super later dinner...lets just say I ate lunch at 5

I like the cup, does it insulate well? Hope you are finding some serenity in your days.
