Oh my goodness, what a serious question.

My ambition is to live a peaceful quiet life, pleasing to God, leave foorprintts in the sand, lay up treasures in heaven, win souls for Christ.- klive a useful life so that people may have something nice to say at my funeral LOL.

Hi Amrita,
You are included in my prayer list during my quiet time because I know the great struggles you are undergoing in your effort to spread the Gospel of love and salvation in your native land that have been under so many strongholds. It must be tough to belong to the minority in a society teeming with so much superstition and pagan practices. Thanks for your visit and interesting viewpoint. The Lord will grant you many crowns of righteousness when you meet Him face to face. God bless you all always.

To be a successful famous author /writer , and fashion designer. The latter , well, is probably not gonna happen in this lifetime. Hehehe

Hi Bingkee,
Yes, you have attained a modicum of success as far as writing is concerned and your designs for women's wardrobe have been published in the internet. You also showed that you can paint and would have probably been a successful painter if you just pursued your talent. But of course not everything we want can be accomplished since we are limited by circumstances beyond our control. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Since you said "Was", it made me think of all the plans I had for my life. The Lord had other plans for me, however unselfish my plans seemed to be. First I wanted to be a nurse...a home care nurse, but got allergic to animals and most people here (especially those who live alone and need help) have pets, so I changed that to hospital nurse, then got too sick for that, so decided I wanted to do public speaking about the Joy the Lord can give us despite the trials of the last days. Got too sick for that, so became a writer, hoping to reach many souls and lift their hearts...got too sick to concentrate well enough to write...so now my barest survival ambitions are here...just to hear the Holy Spirit clearly, to reach people from my bed, through the internet, one by one, to lift and to cheer them. The Lord has been leading me to those who seem to need me most, which is fulfilling. Hoping soon to gain enough strength to write something helpful to others on my blog. It's been since December that it has been work to even think or breathe, but this week I found a good natural medicine for adrenal burnout, so I now have more hope. I had one before, but became allergic to it, but had to keep taking it or my body would shut down, but kept getting sicker from the allergy, until the new brand was found. We all need something to look forward to, so my incentive to try to get strong is to go to somewhere with Palm trees, and to meet my grandchildren even once in my life, and see my children after 12 years. (Since my first husband abandoned me and I had to leave the country to move back to Canada to survive, and they could not come with me.) I hope the Lord comes soon. I am ready for a resurrected body. I will be so hyperactive, I will be buzzing around like a speeding bee or hummingbird. No one will be able to keep up with me. hahaha. (That's probably how I burned out my body, by doing that for the first 35 years of my life. haha.)
I miss my blogging family so much, whoever reads this who knows me, I think of you!
Bless you all, especially you Mel. You are a treasure, and salt of the earth.
Blessings, Sheila

Hi Shiela,
Yes, you had so many wonderful plans in life but somehow your deteriorating health prevented you from achieving them. Your innocent wish to go where there are palm trees and meet your grandchildren and children even once more in your life is very touching indeed. But there will come a time when our mortal bodies will be replaced by God's glorious bodies and you can go anywhere you want to and become free from all those noxious diseases. There is a set time for everything, even for suffering. I am still hopeful that you will still see better days in your life. I never stopped praying for you and the others and I know God always hears our prayers. Thanks for your visit and meaningful comments. God bless you always.
