    I Received Everything -Revisited

    I Received Everything -Revisited

    One of my favorite poems for this season is titled “I Received Everything”. I chanced upon it two years ago and shared it with you at that time, but I thought it would be great to share it again.


    I asked God for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

    I asked God for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.

    I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brains to work.

    I asked for courage and God gave be dangers to overcome.

    I asked for patience and God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.

    I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.

    I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.

    I asked for everything so I could enjoy life.

    Instead, He gave me life so I could enjoy everything.

    I received nothing I wanted, I received everything I needed.


    Please spend time enjoying your family, friends and colleagues, but do not forget to have some ‘me’ time. May God bless you and your loved ones. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and good health for the rest of the year and the best for 2020.

    Merry Christmas. Happy Kwanzaa. Happy Hanukkah.
