Found this on the internet and thought I would share.  I don't know if it has been posted before so if it has I'm sorry.

A  BEAUTIFUL PRAYER
 
  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 ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
  God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
