So here goes.
Today's writing prompt is:
If I knew I could, I would...
Oh, if I couldn't fail, the things I would do! First off, I would march right down to Guatemala and straighten things out, so Ronaldo and Julia could come home. I would tell everyone in the world how valuable they are, how valuable human life is in all it's stages. I would adopt Eduardo, who was Cupcake's little friend in the orphanage. I would be an advocate for orphans. I would teach the whole world about therapeutic parenting. It is absolutely the best way to parent and would help so many kids grow up emotionally healthy. I would go back to school to get a degree in counseling.
I would try to bake cheesecake and learn to take pictures well. :-)
Rats! That's not all my dreams. There's so much to do, and so little me. :-) I have so many things swirling around in my head. So much of it is urgent and necessary. I want to rally the troops to take action. I want to teach others about Jesus. I want to be used by God to transform lives. I want to stop injustice and reduce poverty.
I want to write a book. That's on my bucket list. Someday...not just yet.
As I look at this stuff, I'm pretty excited, because I'm doing many of those things on a small scale. I guess I'm not really afraid of failing anymore (much).
It would not be possible for me to help Ronaldo and Julia's situation, so I won't be traveling to Guatemala for diplomatic reasons. It will only be accomplished through prayer, which I am earnestly involved in. Eduardo is not possible, since Guatemala is closed to adoption and I'm too old and worn out. I won't be getting a counseling degree, but I certainly find myself doing lots of lay counseling.
So, it looks like I should go buy me some cream cheese and look into Photography classes. ;-)
Blessings to you,
