Shall I Leave You Alone?

My dear child, are you questioning the number of trials in your life?  Remember the vineyard and learn from it.  The gardner stops pruning and trimming the vine or weeding the soil only when he expects nothing more from the vine during that season.  Do you now want me to stop pruning your life? 
Shall I leave you alone?
