What is my deepest longing or desire, the thing I crave the most?
That is a hard question to answer, because I can think of several things.
I would love to have all the clutter out of my house. It would enable me to live more simply.
I would love to see all the repairs done that are needed on the house.
I would love to finish the landscaping around the house, getting rid of the weeds and brush. We will continue to replace with edible plants and flowers.
I would love to have my house clean, and nicely but simply decorated for this holiday time.
I would love to publish a book of poetry and/or a photo haiku collection.
Many of these desires can be fulfilled by buckling down and getting to work. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.
All of these wants are good and needed, but do I really crave them?
More than any of these listed I crave peace and a deeper relationship with God. Having all my children and grandchildren experience God’s peace and love would bring me even more joy. I pray that this verse will one day be realized for all my children.
I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are walking in truth. 3 John 4 CSB
