"If I could..."
(By Bob Perks - Bob@BobPerks.com)

I looked at you today and never felt so proud before. I listened to you dream out loud and wanted to make your dreams come true so you didn't have to wait. For there is nothing I wouldn't do for you, if I could.

If I could, I would make sure you never lost at anything. But what would you learn from winning all the time? Losing keeps you humble.

If I could, I would catch you when you fell. But then you'd never know the power of rising up again.

If I could, I would take you directly to your life's destination. But then, you'd never know the thrill of getting lost along the way.

If I could, I would find the love you long for, the love of your life. But then you'd never know that the joy of true love is in the journey it takes to find it.

If I could, I'd make your days all sunny. But then you'd never know the cleansing of the rain.

If I could, I'd surround you with the treasures of the world you live in. But then you'd never appreciate the value of the treasures of the world within you.

If I could, I'd put happiness within your reach. But then you'd never learn that real growth only comes from reaching for things beyond your grasp.

If I could, and I will... I'll love you until my last breath of life and through eternity.

Dear God,        
        If I could, I would learn to consciously Value the difficulties and trials of life that serve to teach me Appreciation, Patience and Wisdom… and I Will.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
