i wish...

I wish that brownies were calorie free, and were instead very, very good for you...

I wish that the word "mojo" didn't have such a sexual connotation to it, because it's the best word to describe what I felt like I got back yesterday. (I feel fairly confident that I looked good yesterday, confirmed by a guy friend who stared at me for a moment before he found words to say...which were that I looked "sporty" and "looked good".  By the way, I think the word sporty was not the word he was going for.)

I wish nap times were part of every work day.

I wish that I appreciated waking up early more. I love the idea of getting up early with a cup of coffee and just hanging out with Jesus.  When faced with the reality of the morning, that idea somehow seems sadly much less appealing.

I wish that I was better at living like I am saved than I am.  People know I am a Christian, but it doesn't seem to make as much of an impact as I'd like to see.

I wish I had the resources to make sure everyone was fed and clothed and sheltered.  I do what I can, but some days it doesn't seem to be enough.

I wish that my laundry would put itself away. :)

Just some random wishes for a Monday afternoon.  Hope your week is off to a great start!

This totally touched my heart...lately I have been feeling the SAME way about being a Christian, yet having such a minimal impact on the world. I want to do more for Jesus!!

I think I'm tired of too many normal sayings being taken sexual. I wish I could say normal things and not have peoples minds go the wrong way.

and I wish too I could live more like Christ and not be seen like everyone else. I fail DAILY with that.

Sadly, I would make nap time a part of my work day. Just was talking about this last night. Its amazing I was never fired from a job with how much I used to nap. haha
