Mystery

via Daily Prompt: Mystery  

So many mysteries.

My inner toddler inquires Why?

The jaded, busy adult often ignores, claiming she “knows the difference*”

Its a mystery, not my responsibility.

But is it? A mystery?

Inquiry first, then acceptance.

Acceptance of mystery invites enjoyment

Hmmmm.

 

*from The Serenity Prayer, written by theologian Reinhold Neibuhr in the 1930’s, and now widely used, particularly in 12-step recovery programs.  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.
