    I asked God to take away my pain.
    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.
    Her spirit was whole, her body was 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 earned.

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

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