When you wish upon a star!

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those to love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

I've grown up all my life near the home of Disney World! So I've learned very early on that as soon as you step foot on that piece of property that it's the land of possibilities and where all your dreams can come true! It's a magical place that for that one moment in time, no matter how old you are, you can turn back time and be a kid again, once again full of hopes, dreams, and imagining a world where anything can happen and all your dreams will come true.

Do you think it was God's intention for us to lose that feeling once we step foot off that property?

I certainly don't think so!

God is all about fullfilling hopes, dreams, and desires that he's placed in every single one of us.

And you don't even have to wish upon a star! And heck...you don't even have to go visit Disney to see all those dreams come true..

Although it is kind of fun, ha!

I say all that to say this.. what dream, hope, vision, desire, has he placed in your heart? Have you made it known to him? If not, I encourage you to do so. You just never know, he could be right there just waiting so you can see it come to fruition.

It always fun to wish upon a star, so do that too :)

An example for me would be this past weekend when a seed was planted for me. My family has noticed the love I've taken for photography. I absolutely LOVE taking pictures of anything and everything, haha. They kind of harass me about it but then they kind of noticed the genuine love I've taken to picture taking. They mentioned that maybe I should take a photography class and see what comes out of it.

I never really thought much about it before and I've always hoped that God would bring along my path something I could take interest in and something I'd find joy and fulfillment in doing. Deep down, it's been a desire for a long time...

So who knows what will come out of it, maybe I'll wish upon a star and see what happens :)

Nah, I think the Lord can handle this on his own without the stars!

Doesn't this just make you want to take a trip to Disney right about now? haha!

Do it!! Take that class... do something you have a passion for!!!
Then maybe you could be a photographer for DISNEY!!! How ultimately cool would THAT be!!!

I love those lyrics to that song.. "Fate steps in & pulls you through"... I'm a sap!!

I DO wanna go to Disney now!

Jodi said...

I love the magic is Disney! I can't wait to take Jenna!

And...you should for sure take a photography class! It could be your calling, and if you love it, that's so important.

I grew up within minutes of Disneyland ... and I know exactly what you mean about the "magic" of the Magic Kingdom. Heck, I'm 45 and it STILL brings such fond memories to my heart!! I hope you find many things that bring special joy and even "magic" in your life!

We are total soul sisters!! I, as well, LOVE photography! Ha...like you didn't already know that about me, huh?! :) Too funny!

Anyway, sorry I haven't been commenting lately. Life has been crazy, but that doesn't mean that I don't read what you write...because I totally do! I can relate to you so well and on so many levels.

Sending love and hugs

As a fellow Central Floridian, I know exactly what you mean. In fact, my family will say, "We need a breath of Disney Oxygen." LOL, we swear there's something different about it.

That's an amazing analogy. Completely true.
