Do you know what Awana is?
It is basically the Christian equivalent to Girl Scouts. Looking back I'm pretty sure I was the only heathen in the class. I did not have all the nice Christian girl answers (be shocked..yes, your right in saying that I have not changed much). I always answered the opposite of what we were suppose to answer..which in case you did not know the answer to all questions in church are one word answers..Jesus.
So I'm sitting next to perfect Christian girl. The teacher asks me this question...
"If you had one wish, what would it be Amber?"
"Oh!! I know!! I would wish for a million more wishes!! Then I would never use up my wishes!!"
Let's stop for a moment here..I totally thought I was sooo clever. I mean come on.. a million more wishes..how smart am I??
"Ok Amber..what a nice answer, what about you Heather?"
(why are all perfect girls named Heather?)
"Oh I would use my one wish to make sure everybody in the world has Jesus in their heart."
Oh thats just great..
Really she was just super jealous that I was going to use one of my wishes for a party with Tiger Beat magazine and Cory Haim.
Then all the other perfect girls after her answered JUST THE SAME!! I mean not the exact same, but like a Miss America pageant..
"Oh I would wish for an end to world hunger." said Melissa.
"I would wish for a cure for cancer!" said Cindy.
"Um..Jesus??" said Samantha.
So today I'm going to tell you about my 3 wishes, not a million. I feel a little guilty about not wishing for more noble things. I should wish to end world hunger, cure diseases and all that good stuff, but instead I'm going to wish for 3 totally materialistic items..items that would never fulfill me, items that are totally shallow. BUT maybe I COULD feed starving children if I had an I-Phone..well it could happen.
A Mac Book Pro..a photog's dream computer. My next cameraI could respond to emails from all the children I helped save from hunger via this I-Phone..can't you just picture it now??
