I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.

God said, No. His spirit was whole, his body was only temporary.

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.
