I have always considered myself a dreamer and one who has big dreams which I don't know could ever turn into a reality. I've always felt very much like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Always wanting something more. Always feeling like there is something more I should be doing.
A while back I tried to think of what CHLA could stand for besides Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. CHLA has always held a special place in my heart for various reasons. It seems like all of my ideas I’ve had always pop out of nowhere or they always woke me up in the middle of the night. I don’t know why. That’s just when they pop into my head. As I was thinking about it this is what I came up with:
I thought that it would be neat if I could get children around the world to make heart cards and send it to different children in hospitals with words of encouragement and love on them.
I had thought about this idea a few years ago but forgot about it, setting it aside, thinking it could never happen. That it was just a dream.
Tonight, as I was going through some files on my computer, I found the document in regards to this idea again, as I was thinking about what to write. Coincidence? I think not.
I think God could be telling me it's time. Time to see if the dream can become a reality. I won't ever know if a dream can turn into a reality without asking. And if I didn't ask I would always be wondering. Wondering what could have happened if I had taken that next step.
I'm ready for God to use me for something bigger. Maybe this is it. Maybe it's not. I still need to contact the hospital to see if my idea was even possible. But now I'm ready to take that next step.
Will you pray with me about this? Pray asking if God would want this and if so that He would open the door for this to happen. Thank you!
