Love To Live

By: Claudia Minden Weisz (the mother of a Rett Syndrome child)


I asked God to take away my pride. And God said "No".
He said it was not for Him 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 patience is a by-product of tribulations. It isn't granted, it is earned.


I asked God to give me happiness. And God said "No".
He said He gives me blessings,
happiness is up to me.


I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No".
He said suffering draws me apart from worldly cares and brings me closer to Him.


I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No".
He said I must
grow on your own. But He will prune me to make me fruitful.


I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No".
He said He will give me life, that I may
enjoy all things.


I asked God to help me love others, as much as he loves me.
And God said "Ah, finally you have the idea!"
