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 up. 

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 byproduct 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 things. 

I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

God said... Ahhhh,
finally you have the idea. 


  1. That was nice.

    Sadly, I can't see the photos; it's actually a problem for me often but only on your blog, so I'm not sure what the deal is.

    But I think they weren't really necessary for this post. :)

  2. That's weird. My blog is photo blocking you. It's too bad because the little photos move around and make faces and are really cute.



Got your panties in a bunch? Dig 'em out, get comfortable, and let's chat.
