                                AND GOD SAID, “NO”

                                I asked God to take away my pride.
                                         And God said, “no”.
                                 He said it was not to be taken away
                                        but for me to give up.

                                     He said her spirit is whole,
                                    Her body is only temporary.
                                I asked God to grant me patience,
                                        And God said, “No”.
                          He said patience is a by-product of tribulation;
                                   It isn’t granted--it is earned.
                                I asked God to give me happiness,
                                       And God said, “No”.
                                 He said He would give blessings;
Inside this issue:                    Happiness is up to me.
                                   I asked God to spare me pain,

                                 He said I must grow on my own,

      “The longer I live, the more I realize
         the impact of attitude on life.
    Attitude, to me, is more important than
 education, than money, than circumstances,
than failures, than successes, than appearance,
    giftedness or skill. It will make or break
          a company, church or home.
     The remarkable thing is that we have
   a choice every day regarding the attitude
         we will embrace for that day.
         We cannot change our past.
       We cannot change the fact that
        people will act in a certain way.
      We cannot change the inevitable.
 The only thing we can do is play on the one
    string we have, and that is our attitude.
           I am convinced that life is
          10% of what happens to me
           and 90% how I react to it.
             And so it is with you.
      We are in charge of our attitudes.”
