This week in Weekend Wandering, David has invited us to write "What Is Your Dream?"
So I will endeavour to write what I dream about.
I dream that the World might be filled with peace.
That wars will be no more.
That people will stop fighting each other.
That hard eyes of sadistic cruelty....... will melt into kindness & love.
That children will be forever protected by adults and never be exploited or criticized to the point where they have no feelings of self worth.
That people will live in harmony and love, no matter what faith or race they might come from.
That animals will not have to suffer at the hands of mankind, just because they are animals
I dream that everyone will have enough to eat and that the richer countries will give a slice of their cake to people who have never tasted cake.
That everyone will have clean drinking water and a roof over their head, that is sturdy enough to withstand the strongest storm.
That everyone will be equal and that there will no more oppression and slavery.
I dream that we will conquer the bad illnesses of the world and that every one will live to reach their full potential and not be stricken with killer cancers and diseases that prevent them from living normally.
I dream that people will respect others and and also their environment. That they will think before they start to chop down rain forests for profit and other such destroying projects.
From a Christian point of view, I believe all these bad things will pass away and every thing will be made new........... after Jesus comes again to sort out the sad world that we some times find our selves to be in.
In the meantime........ we must work together to fight for some of the things we can change. To help others and try and make a difference in their lives.
You may well ask what can be done with such a mammoth amount of problems?
Well, even lots of little things can help to make a big thing.
We all know about the environment and I'm sure we all do our bit to help with this.
We can also help the people who are struggling in the world to survive through lack of food and clean water, who are also suffering from disease because of lack of money for basic drugs.
We can help with sponsoring a child or even knitting a few squares towards a blanket for overseas distribution.
We can run the Race For Life or support some one else who is running, so that we might try and find a cure for cancer.
We can help our elderly neighbours with little jobs that they might feel they cannot do any more. Just a simple thing like changing a light bulb might be difficult for them. Or we can be there to listen, when a lonely person needs to talk.
It is futile to waste our time quarrelling as we never know how long we are on this earth for. It is such a waste of time.
I dream that maybe after I have left this place that we call Earth and moved to the next world, that I might have made a difference to someone else's life! Just for one such person, it would have all been worth it.
Today is my Birthday, so I'd like everyone to have a slice of my virtual cake or a piece of my dream! Too bad its a Monday and I have to work till 8.30 pm because of a wretched meeting/training!
