a beautiful prayer

I found this email print when I was cleaning up my room dated 10 of March 2003 in a file
the title was "Why God said "No?!?"... It's actually a prayer... in it says


I asked GOD to take away my habit. GOD said, NO.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give 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 by product of tribulation. It isn't granted. It's 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 wordly 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 in 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.

If you love GOD, send this to 10 people and back to the person that sent it.
This day is your don't throw it away. May GOD Bless You.

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

well besides the send this to 10 people thing... every other words are nice. well it helps in away to keep me moving on when I'm in doubt. may be that's why I kept it.
