If money was no object.

So today our pastor brought up the question of  “If you didn’t have to worry about money, what would you do?” I can remember thinking about this question as a young adult and let’s be honest, even as a grown adult our mind goes there still. I’ve had silly whims and dreams that still make my list like: a daily massage, someone to change my sheets on the bed everyday (I love clean sheets!), and lots of beautiful dishes. And yes, I’d travel the world, but what I’d do on these travels now wouldn’t just consist of sunbathing on a beach with a fruity drink with an umbrella in it. I tried to really think of just one thing I would pour myself into, but I think my oldest daughter said it best, “if money was really no object, what wouldn’t you do.”

I started thinking about what I am passionate about, homeschooling. So if money was no object, I would help families starting on their journey to home education. I’d travel the country encouraging moms and dads towards the choice of bringing their children home.

Then with children on my mind, and if money was no object, I’d buy houses to turn them into pregnancy crisis homes so girls would know there is an option instead of abortion. I’d add rooms on to my house to take in foster babies. I’d travel to Russia and spend time holding and reading to the children in the orphanages.  I’d go to India and feed the children on the streets.

I thought about my passion for books and my favorite books, the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s books, and if money was no option, I’d donate the entire collection to schools, libraries, and churches.

I thought about the homeless, and if money was no object, I’d outfit motorhomes so that they could shower, get a fresh change of clothes, and feed them.

The possibilities are just endless! I realize that there are plenty of little things I can do right now that really don’t cost me anything. Maybe I need to spend a little time thinking about what is standing in my way. So what would you do if money is no object? Regardless of a bank account to pay for all these dreams, I think I’ll keep dreaming and imagining, because my God has unlimited resources.
