Just Wishin’ and Hopin’

“When you wish upon a star…” -Pinnocchio

“I’m wishing…for the one I love…” -Snow White

“Just keep wishin’ and hopin’ and thinkin’ and prayin’…” -My Best Friend’s Wedding

“Wishing: to want, desire and long for…” -Webster’s Dictionary

It came to my mind after a recent blog on trying to think of the impossible that I wasn’t very good at it.  I don’t even have a bucket list for goodness sake! And well, that bothered me and I decided to start making one.  I guess what I realized was the reason behind why I didn’t have a list.  Wishing takes an act of revealing deep down desires of which we often don’t even acknowledge without the realization that it takes hope to awaken them. Without hope why would anyone risk the work it takes to wish and dream?  I’m not sure I would at all.  But I do believe it is a balancing act. An act of pursuing the dreams and desires God’s put in us, while holding it so loosely in our hands, knowing we only see through our fallen human eyes and it rarely looks how He sees it.  The bottom line is His picture always blows ours out of the water if we’ll trust giving up ours!  So… I digress… here is one of my wishes.

Backpacking Europe! It will happen!
