A Creed forThose Who Have SufferedBy Roy Campanella(from Chicken Soup for the Soul)
I asked God forstrength, that I mightachieve,
I was made weak,that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked forhealth,that I mightdo greatthings.
I was giveninfirmity,that I mightdo betterthings.
I asked for riches,that I might be happy.
I was given poverty,that I might be wise.
I asked for power,that I might have thepraise of men.I was given weakness,that I might feelthe need of God.
I asked for all things,that I might enjoylife.
I was given life,that I mightenjoy allthings.
I got nothingI asked for –but everything Ihad hoped for.
Almost despitemyself, my unspokenprayers wereanswered.
I am,among men,most richlyBLESSED!
