    I asked God to take away my habit.
    God said, No.
    It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

    I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
    God said, No.
    His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary

    I asked God to grant me patience.
    God said, No.
    Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
    it isn't granted, it is learned.

    I asked God to give me happiness.
    God said, No.
    I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

    I asked God to spare me pain.
    God said, No.
    Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
    and brings you closer to me.

    I asked God to make my spirit grow.
    God said, No.
    You must grow on your own! ,
    but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

    I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
    God said, No.
    I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

    I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
    God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

    May God Bless You,
    "To the world you might be one person, but to one
    person you just might be the world"

    "Even the word 'IMPOSSIBLE' says 'I M POSSIBLE'

    I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
    I had so much to accomplish, I didn't have time to pray.

    Problems just tumbled about me and grew heavier with each task;
    Why doesn't God help me, I wondered; He answered, "You didn't ask."

    I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
    I wondered why God didn't show me - He said, "But you didn't seek."

    I tried to come into God's presence; I used all my keys at the lock;
    God gently and lovingly chided, "My child, you didn't knock."

    I woke up early this morning and paused before entering the day;
    I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
