So, you're stranded on a deserted island, and a genie appears to grant you three wishes.  What would you wish for?  Now I don't actually believe in magic genies; I am a very rational person of course, but forget about rational thought and play along.  

So what would I wish for?  Here are my three choices.  Comment on this blog post today and share your three wishes and you'll be entered for a chance to win a copy of my eBook, Mr. Shipley's Governess.

1.  I would wish for my husband and family to join me on the island.  There's no fun in being stranded all alone, right!!

2.  My second wish would be for a Kindle so I could read the Bible and catch up on all the books in my to be read pile.  

3.  The last thing I would wish for would be a plan to get off of the island after my vacation with my family and after I've had a chance to relax and read on the beach!  

Let's try to bring this little exercise in creative thinking back to reality.  As an author, does it sometimes feel like you are stranded, living on a deserted island and you have no way of getting out into a life of success?  

You may not be an author, but still feel this way as if your life is stranded  and stagnant and going nowhere.  

My first defense when this happens is to look up to what really matters in my life - my relationship with the Lord.  He never promised that life would be all roses, but He'd walk with us in all that we go through.  To me that's great comfort.  Life may not be today what you'd like it to be, but if you're breathing then that means you're alive for another day and that's a good thing, right!  God's not a magic genie, but He is the one I look to when things are good, bad or ugly in my life.  If I was really stranded on a deserted island, I'd be praying for sure.  

So, what would you wish for?  :-)

I'm sure you haven't forgotten that Valentine's Day is next week. I'm hosting a blog party here at The Mustard Seed so please mark your calendars and stop back to visit again. There will be guest authors and book giveaways.

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
