St. Andrew High School Class of 1962

I asked God to take away my pride,

And God said, “No.”

He said it was not his to take away but for me to give up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,

And God said, “No.”

He said her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience,

And God said, “No.”

He said that patience is a byproduct of tribulation, it isn’t granted, it’s earned.

I asked God to give me happiness,

And God said, “No.”

He said he gives blessing, happiness is up to me.

I asked God to spare me pain,

And God said, “No.”

He said “suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me”

I asked God to make my spirit grow,

And God said, “No.”

He said I must grow on my own, but he will prune me to make me fruitful.

I asked God if he loved me,

and God said, “Yes.”

He gave me his only Son, who died for me, and I will be in heaven someday because I  believe.

I asked God to help me love others as much as he loved me,

And God said, “Ah, finally, you have the idea.”
