Wish list…

If you could make one wish and have it come true, what would it be?

The longer I live the more I realize time is ticking. Life is shorter. People need love. Extraordinary love. The kind that comes with no conditions or boundaries.

The longer I live the more I experience situations that are heart wrenching and unexplainable. Almost two years ago, I took a trip to the Dominican Republic to work with girls ages 6-18 in a safe house. Without going into great detail, I had some “serious discussions” with God as I began to understand some of the pain these young girls had to walk through.

The longer I live the more I pray for miracles. Miracles for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

The longer I live the less I need. Simple is better…the BEST actually.

The longer I live the more I desire to have a greater understanding of what it is to trust and have faith in God. Faith and trust that goes way beyond what I am able to see in front of me.

The longer I live the more I realize that everyone is on a journey. Everyone has a story. Everyone has messes. Everyone needs someone who will listen without judgement.

The longer I live the more I am aware to keep my eyes on Jesus and not on the world. Looking to the left or right is dangerous. Hypocrisy is by far the greatest reason for people turning away from God.

The longer I live the more I think about what life might be like for our children, grandchildren and future generations…

The longer I live the more my wish list changes.

I wish I could share my love across the borders. I guess that’s one of the reasons I blog… In hopes I might be able to show unconditional love and hope with no barriers.

I wish children could be protected from harm.

I wish people with horrible diseases such as cancer and mental illness would be healed!

I wish for contentment always. To be thankful and grateful for the simple things.

I wish for greater faith and trust in Jesus.

I wish for less judgement and greater listening.

I wish for less hypocrisy.

I wish for a long lineage of people who are dependent on God.

The longer I live the more my wish list has little to do with me and everything to do with the people I love.

Thoughts for today…

  1. My wish list has become my prayers.
  2. My wish list for the world is long.
  3. EVERYDAY CHOOSE JOY!
