What is your heart’s desire? What does it reveal about you?
I thought of this when my daughter was very young. For her third Christmas she wanted a balloon and an umbrella. So sweet! She was constant and clear- that was her heart’s desire.
Recently my six year old grandson asked for a remote-control … something. It could be a car, truck, boat, creature. But what he cared about was for the controller to be able to see out of the eyes of the machine. That took my breath away; I had never even considered that! His heart’s desire was to be able to see what it sees, to inhabit the machine. Grandma’s mind blown.
My little granddaughter will soon turn four and we ask what she wants for her birthday. Soft pajamas (don’t we all!) A blue owl stuffy. This proves hard to find, but I see why she conjured up this image- it would be the perfect combination of her love of birds and of blue and of soft, squishy things.
Finally, her heart’s desire is to have a Pteranodon. But it has to be bigger than the plastic flying dinosaurs they already have. Perhaps this is a result of having a big brother? Her heart’s desire is to have the BIGGEST Pteranodon!
