I Wish…

…full gas tanks would stay full.

…children would be smiled at and have their hair tousled as much as they deserve.

…learning Polish would be easier.

… roads wouldn’t have pot-holes.

…I’d own a private ocean cove.

…cells wouldn’t mutate to form  tumors.

…there would be answers for every question.

…Business English wouldn’t be about business.

…we could see the real battle we’re in and that it’s bigger than any person.

…I could understand poetry.

…autumn wouldn’t mean the end of summer.

…women would live knowing they are beautiful without striving.

…I could remember how short life’s imperfections are compared to eternity’s perfection.

  1. I wish that the good would not have to suffer

    I wish the rain would go on vacation

    I wish I’d found out I have artrithis 21 years ago instead of now at 24

    I wish puppies and babies would stay puppies and babies for longer

    I wish there were only be two seasons: autumn & summer

    I wish there would be Anabaptist communities worldwide

  2. That line about cells and tumors…
    that’s about someone else… or about you??

    I wish… the letter I’m currently writing you would already be finished 🙂

  3. I can appreciate the yearnings expressed here. It made me think of the following song.
    ‘Tis the gift to be simple,
    ’tis the gift to be free,
    ’tis the gift to come down
    where we ought to be,
    and when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    ’twill be in the valley of love and delight.
    When true simplicity is gained
    to bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
    to turn, turn, will be our delight
    till by turning, turning we come round right.

    By the grace of God we continue on. Blessings as you minister in a place that feels strange to you. It is amazing how much difference several years make. I really feel like I have found a niche here, in many ways. That doesn’t mean there are no more questions by any means!

  4. I would love to, but you’ld better talk to God about that one. We had just enough rain to dampen the ground early this morning. It has actually been cloudy all day yesterday and today. Our temperatures dropped about 30 degrees in approx. a week’s time. I’m still adjusting to the cool weather.

    • So that’s where the rain went yesterday!

      When I was in my teens I couldn’t hack another summer of non-stop cold and rain so I hassled God for oh.. about 3 months- and the next summer was pleasant, warm and sunny.Of course I don’t imagine for one minute that God changed the weather for the country just for me but I’m sure it happened because I wasn’t the only one requesting better weather.Others must have being doing the same.

      Try it.
