I Wish...

Here are some things I wish.  I can't honestly say that I pray for them, but they are things that run through my mind!

I wish I had the time to to keep in contact with ALL my friends well and not have to go in spurts with a few at a time.

I wish my neck alignment didn't cause me to have migraine headaches!

I wish I could see my boys grow into men AND keep them young at the same time.

I wish I could always remember Trey's smile before he loses all his baby teeth.

I wish I understood my Alex more.

I wish I didn't feel exhausted when I fall into bed at night.

I wish I didn't have to work and could just focus on being mom.

I wish I could finally put to rest the battle that wages in me on whether I can effectively teach my kids!

I wish people everywhere could stop hurting each other.

I wish people could talk more and judge less.

I wish mean assumptions had not been made about me.

I wish everyone would receive Jesus and know true peace.

I wish I had the money to live in a huge house and adopt a lot of kids...from everywhere!

I wish I could take away Garrison's battle with fear.

I wish people would seek to listen to the younger people in their lives and not seek to control them.

I wish my children were not inundated with sinful messages everywhere they turn in this world.

I wish I didn't wake up in the middle of the night with my heart racing and crazy thoughts running through my mind!

I wish life hadn't made me cynical and caused my faith to be lacking.

I wish I could never forget all the happy moments with the sons.

I wish I could see every person I pray for healed.

I wish no parents ever had to watch a child die.

I wish every parent loved their baby to the uttermost.

I wish...

So, I definitely see some things I can pray about...for wishing is just leaving it up for chance!  Faith is the substance of things hoped for but not yet seen.  Faith is confident assurance!

What do you wish for???  And of the things you wish, which ones can you start praying about?
