Thinking of Serenity 40.


The quality or state of being serene.

Serenity is the wisdom of knowing who you are, and understanding your place in the greater reality. Only by "seeing" the greater truths can you remain calm while everyone around you is losing their temper and blaming it on you. A spiritual friend explained to me that the ability to remain calm and serene in the middle of a battlefield is the mark of a truly spiritual person. Four U.S. Army chaplains--two Protestant, one Catholic, and one Jewish--were aboard the Army transport ship U.S.S. Dorchester when it was torpedoed and sunk in the North Atlantic, off the coast of Greenland, on February 3, 1943. The four gave away their own life-jackets so others might live. They stood on the deck while the ship sank. Serenity is a gift from God to His children. If you don't own it, seek it today.

"Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm."
