I'd like to get my house clean. I don't mean just dusting...but, purge it of all the "stuff" that's accumulated when I wasn't watching. I have a tendency to be a pack rat and envision all possible future uses to everything....and therefore, I can't possibly throw it out! One day I may have to diffuse a nuclear bomb...and I would use parts from that old toaster oven to do so! ...and don't even ask me what I could do with the old coat rack sitting in the garage...that's top secret.
I would like to make a positive difference in someone's life.
After years of fruitless attempts, I would LOVE to be able to convince a non-believer, that Orthodoxy is the True Way....and they would actually "get it" and convert. I would have failed miserably as an Apostle.
I would like to be a useful cog in the machinery of the Church. Can you imagine, not just living "your" life, but, to do something for the Church? Something useful and meaningful. I'm waiting for that day.
I would like to have the health and stamina .... and wisdom....to persevere and accomplish whatever God sends my way.
I would love to have the fortitude, wisdom, and patience....to not get so upset with some of the posters and posts on this site and elsewhere. I want to turn "off" my neon flashing buttons.
