Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?
OK, here is how I see it, I can make a list of people in my life that truly deserve true happiness and who I would love to be able give them anything that I can. But that doesn’t seem right.
I can pick a random person and through great humility (ahem) offer them something that they can not get for themselves, I could go to skid row and find someone there, or go to a hospital and find someone that needs to be cured, or to a homeless shelter or 3rd world country….all would be appropriate and all would be justified, but that is not what I would do.
What I think is irrelevant, isn’t it? I’ve been crammed inside this bottle, and I am pretty sure it is not full of pillows like on the TV show “I Dream of Jeannie”
and cannot wait to get out. I am sure that the relief of getting out after however long would give me such a sense of gratitude to that person that found my bottle and opened it up, JUST IN CASE there was three wishes waiting for them.
But that is not my choice. The way I see it, God has a plan and whoever picks up my bottle will be who God wants to have those three wishes. Who am I to question that? It may sound like a cop out by not making my own choice, but after what I have been through lately in my life, trust me, it is better to keep God in control 🙂
Enjoy your day and I hope some of your wishes do come true, many of mine are.
