I had a friend ask me today why I had gone to a Jewish ceremony on Easter eve. I reminded her that I was still part Jewish even though I am a Christian. My father is Jewish. Every so often I am drawn to Jewish things.  Not all of them but some. I do love a lot of their foods, especially a good bagel. One with cream cheese and lox is like  receiving  a gift for my palate. Yum! I also like going to temple once in awhile. I don’t like to limit my learning. I found this poem awhile ago and had it on Facebook. I love it. It’s so appropriate for me now. Maybe it’s good for you too. It makes a lot of sense. Wish I would have thought of it.

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

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

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

I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome

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

I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted,

I received everything I needed.

My prayers were answered.
