"I Wish" dated 28 March 2009
Life is not really green, as it looks like on the other side of the fence. :-) It has its own side of dry seasons, and rocks and hail, and what not. I feel comforted with the thought that it's just another day, in a life, in a place somewhere. It has its joys, its problems, its hard times, its boredom, its comforts. I want to think God has not forgotten me. Circumstances just sapped me dry and I don't have the energy to seek Him. God is good, all the time. But you can't feel His goodness unless You seek His presence.
I thank God for
comfortable home, car
clothes on my back
great company on the net
time with my family
time to see a movie, sometimes
time to sit and reflect, rare times
time to clean my house
time to cook decent food
time to read, write emails
for being alive - some people my age have died many years ago
great friends, good friends, praying friends
new friends, old, faithful friends
strangers who do their job
strangers who care
being able to feel, smell, see, etc
being able to appreciate
being able to read, write, think, reflect
I wish that I have a longer weekend.
I wish I don't have to clean the house that often.
I wish I don't have to take care of trees, bushes and plants in a garden.
I wish I don't have too much laundry.
I wish I can do other things with my time besides cleaning, cooking, gardening and laundry.
I wish I don't have to relate with so many people and put on so many masks.
I wish I can have time alone.
I wish I can have some silence.
