If I knew I could, I would...



I'm getting addicted to thegypsymama's 5 Minute Fridays.  There's something freeing about writing on a topic for 5 minutes without holding back or editing.  Come join in the fun.  

GO

If I knew I could, I would:

Set free all those exploited children trapped in the sex trade and carry them to Jesus and see Him heal their wounded souls, hearts and bodies and restore their lost identity.

Adopt a bunch of orphans from around the world, bring them home, hug them and love on them day after day till I saw their eyes light up with joy and the security of knowing they finally have a mama and a home.

Tell everyone I know how amazing they are and all the ways they reveal the fingerprint of God.

Watch the final launch of the Endeavor from the space center.  I'll have to content myself with seeing it from my front yard.  (Still spectacular, just not as close.)

STOP

Okay, now it's your turn.  Go for it!  :-)

What a lovely desire to bring home children and love & love on them.

So many desires, so many limitations.

Enjoyed your five minutes!

If I knew I could, I would...

trust and not be afraid of being hurt.

love deeply and not be afraid of being rejected.

teach people compassion for those who are hurting and forgotten - old people with dementia, children who struggle, the handicapped, women who are veiled, those whose eyes show pain.

and, if I knew I could, I would dance... especially outside in the warm, falling summer rains! :)
