Friendship Friday – Make A Wish

Friendship Friday

Food For Thought
If I were to wish for anything,
I should not wish for wealth and power,
But for the passionate sense of potential –
For the eye which,
Ever young and ardent,
Sees the possible.

Pleasure disappoints;
Possibility never.

Soren Kierkegaard
Danish Philosopher & Theolgian

Question Of The Week
Imagine that you were given the power to make one wish.
You could wish for anything (except more wishes!)

What would it be?

My wish would be that Adam & Eve had never sinned
And that we were all living life according to God’s perfect plan!
The possibilities just stagger my mind!
There would be no sickness, no hunger, no death.
There would be loneliness, no crime, no hate.
Everything we think of as bad or negative would not even be
A part of our consciousness as it would never have existed!
Our creative and intellectual potential would far exceed what it is now!
We would live in perfect harmony with one another and the planet.
We would each have an intimate relationship with God.
With one wish, life as we know it would be transformed!

That’s my wish.
What’s yours?
Share it with us at Friendship Friday!

  1. That is an awesome wish! It’s better than wishing for infinite amount of wishes. lol.

    My wish is that there would be no more cancer. Loved ones would not have to leave so early, and the pain from cancer would go away. That’s my wish.

  2. Your wish is awesome. I would wish for the cure of Diabetes. Especially Juvenile Diabetes.
    Hope honey you are doing well. If I can I will come back and try to hook up with you on this for Friday.
    Love ya

    My wish is a selfish one…I would wish that my hubby would have all his dreams come true instead of always worrying about my health.

      Sometimes selfish is ok…it’s hard to see our loved ones worry about us!
      Hope you are doing well – thanks for sharing and have an awesome weekend! 🙂

  4. Wendy says:

    I love your wish! Oh what a wonderful world it would be now if we lived according to God’s perfect plan! Great thing is one day we will have that perfect world!

  5. I found you through Friday Shout Out! I am now following you on twitter and google +! I am off to peek around your blog! Have a fantastic weekend!

    How can I top that wish 🙂 Can’t believe I missed last week’s awesome topic as well, but this week is just a fantastic! You’re definitely an inspiration and I’m so glad our paths have crossed! Working on finding my balance with some new responsibilities given to me and learning to take it all one day at a time! On my way to write my post for tomorrow – mine would be for a one pill cure for all the different illnesses that seem to be plaguing those around me and their loved ones (cancer, brain tumors, diabetes, heart disease, etc). Have a fantastic weekend!!!

      I look forward to reading your post and it’s possible that last week’s link is still open (I’ve expanded the window by popular demand!) 🙂
      I’m so glad our paths have crossed too… you are one of the many fabulous bloggers I now count as friends as a result of Friendship Friday! 🙂

  7. Becky says:

      Thanks for letting me know – I would not have seen it otherwise! Looks like we are all caught up – thanks for such an awesome post this week! 🙂

    This week, I won’t write a blog post response to answer this week’s question (because I don’t want my Mom to see), but I will have to agree with Rachel and say that I wish cancer did not exist. It’s such a horrible disease that has touched my life more than once. I saw my sweetie’s mother pass away slowly from it, and then when I returned home after helping take care of her, my mother was diagnosed with leukemia not too long after. It was like my life came crashing down in one swoop.

    When I heard the diagnosis, I broke down, but that was probably the only time I cried. It was weird, it was like I knew things would work out. I didn’t feel this intense fear or worry over the situation. It was a scary process to go through that stretched over a couple of months, and I was very involved in the process…but it was MY MOTHER this time – so very different. However, I will say that it felt like God had comforted me in this crucial time in my life. He made me stronger so that I could help my mother better.

    • Create With Joy

      I am SO sorry to hear of your mother’s diagnosis! My husband’s father also had leukemia – I never met him as a result – but I know from what he has shared how horrible that is.

      Last year, on my anniversary (of all days!) – my husband was diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer. I remember how scared and helpless I felt. I was so terrified I could not even put it into words – I felt like if I did, it might make it more real, give it more strength. I’m sure that sounds crazy to a lot of you, but that was my initial reaction.

      Cancer made me feel small.

      So I totally understand you not wanting your mom to see your post this week. I’m so glad you have felt God’s strength and power during all of this. How is she now?

  9. My wish is all hunger and suffering would be wiped off the face of the earth, especially in my native homeland of Haiti. You can read more about my wish here:

  10. Yona says:

    I also forgot to mention that your wish is a beautiful one to have.

  11. Yona says:

    I alsoooo forgot to mention that my mother beat cancer and has surpassed the ‘waiting period’ where you’re in the clear and can say that you are in remission.

  12. Janice says:

    Came across you thankfully from feelingbeachie and the four fill in the blank hop I am now following you also.
    My answer to the question …. would be also somewhat selfish but I wish to have a closer relationship with God so I can be a better Christian and help others know Him and his Word I feel like I fall short on alot of the days, but He is not done with me yet, I am a work in progress!

      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      Welcome Janice – so glad you found us! I don’t think your wish is selfish at all. I think it’s awesome and trust me – we are ALL works in progress!
      Have a great weekend! 🙂

    I love this post. Great idea, I have to say. I got here via the Getting To Know You bloghop. My wish would be the exact same as Rachel’s. No more cancer would be wonderful. I’ve known too many people taken too early because of it.

    Best wishes,

      Dear Melanie

      I’m so glad you are here today – I stopped by your blog earlier today and you have been SO busy! LOVE all of your new journalling and mail art! I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope to see you at Inspire Me Monday! 🙂

  29. Hi, how wonderful is your blog is and to gain freindship through your blog. Thanks and I am linking to you:)

  30. My one wish would be mine and my family’s health!

    Thanks for participating in SASS this week:

  31. This is a great idea. I will have to get organised and participate. Following you on Twitter. Thanks for linking up with Flash Blog Friday!

  32. I’ve wanted to write a blog post about this, but can’t because I don’t want my family to read it.

    My Nana has been battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) since October 2011. Her health is rapidly deteriorating. She’s in so much pain and losing function of a lot of her muscles. It really sucks and I just wish I could take away all her pain. I wish I could tell her everything was going to be all right. It’s not going to be though. I wish this nasty disease didn’t exist.

    – Nicole

      Dear Nicole

      I’m so sorry to hear about your Nana’s battle with ALS. I have a friend who works for them and I know it’s such a terrible disease.
      I wish your wish could come true. Your Nana and your family are in my prayers.

  33. Charlotte says:

    Sounds like a good wish to me, however, everything would be totally different. We might not even exist because circumstances in our fallen world brought people together who might not have even existed in the perfect world as God created it. It’s all speculation, of course, but I still like your idea.

    • Create With Joy
      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      You know, Charlotte, I thought about that, and it took me to one of two places. First, based on the Scripture that God sees us and knows us before we are even born – I have to trust that I’d still be here… but, even if I weren’t – I wouldn’t know it, as I wouldn’t exist! But, this is the stuff that really boggles the mind if we try to wrap our heads around it, isn’t it? One of the ways I know that God’s thoughts are so much higher than mind! Have a blessed week! 🙂

  34. That is an awesome wish you have!

    I would wish that my mother could live with or close to me now to see me as a mother and get to enjoy her grand children.

  35. Virgina says:

    I wish this world could be full of love, peace, and hope.
