༺ Abundance ༻


I asked for strength that I might achieve.
He gave me weakness that I might learn obedience.
I asked for health that I might do great things.
He gave me sickness that I might do better things.
I asked for wealth that I might be happy.
He gave me poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have glory.
He gave me impotence that I might realize my dependance upon him.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
He gave me life that I might enjoy all things.
I received nothing that I asked for,
but all I hoped for.
I am rich.
I am happy.
My prayer is answered.

Carved angel above was found at a mission thrift store last week for two dollars.
Jon took her picture for my blog.
