Happy New Year 2013!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I chose this image as it reminds me that the year is safe if I allow it to be in God's hands.

I received the quote below last month from a client that I had years ago who pops up every few years to say "Hi."  This struck me as an appropriate way to begin my New Year. 

I ASKED GOD



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.
