I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't
granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and
brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to
make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as
He loves me.
God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

"To the world you might be one person, but to
one person you just might be the world"

"May the Lord Bless you and keep you,
May the Lord Make his face shine upon you, and
give you Peace.....Forever"
