I asked God for strength, that I might achieve – I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for help, that I might do greater things -I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.

I asked for riches, that I might be happy – I was given poverty, that I might be wise.

I asked for all things, that i might enjoy life – I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for – But everything that i had hoped for.

Despite myself, my prayers were answered.

I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

~Prayer written by anonymous Confederate soldier during the Civil war~

Have a great weekend everyone, and please, remember to say a little prayer. Pax et bonum!
