If I had my druthers….

According to Dictionary.com, the slang word, druthers, is a noun  that means wishes; desires; preferred alternatives.  So I put together some of my druthers.

If I had my druthers, there would be no sickness.

If I had my druthers, there would be no hunger.

If I had my druthers, there would be no sorrow.

If I had my druthers, there would be no poverty.

If I had my druthers, there would be no stealing.

If I had my druthers, there would be no night.

If I had my druthers, there would be no adultery.

If I had my druthers, we all would honor our parents.

If I had my druthers, there would be no killing.

If I had my druthers, our leaders would all be honest and trustworthy.

If I had my druthers, there would be no jealousy or envy.

If I had my druthers, there would be no abortions.

If I had my druthers, we would all keep the sabbath holy.

If I had my druthers, there would be no hate.

If I had my druthers, there would be no addictions.

If I had my druthers, there would no swearing or profanity.

Any one of us could probably on and on with bad things that go on in this life on this world.  And while none of us has experienced all of the negative things that occur during our lives, we all have experienced many of them.  And we have probable been guilty of some of them ourselves.  Since man got kicked out of the Garden of Eden, we’ve never experienced–or even been able to imagine–the perfection that God had given Adam and Eve.

Wouldn’t it be absolutely wonderful to be able to experience that again?  To have no sin, suffering, sorrow or pain. No persecution, division, disunity, or hate.  Think of a life with no quarrels, arguments , disappointments or sadness.  Can you even begin to imagine a life filled with perfect love, perfect knowledge, perfect pleasure and perfect comfort?  All in all, it would be a life of perfect joy.

Too bad we don’t have a place like that.  Oh, wait… we do!  It’s called Heaven.

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. (I Corinthians 2:9).

Make sure you’re ready to eventually arrive there.  Because anywhere else will be all the negative parts of my “druthers”.
