Updated on January 22, 2010

If I had three wishes, I would wish for spiritual virtues of faith, hope and love.

These wishes may sound absurd to many, but these may give a lift to the spirit of the downtrodden few. With almost everything around us being acquired and achieved in an instant, the virtues of persistence, patience, and peaceful dealings are not practiced anymore.

Faith to believe trust something that is not physically evident. Faith is believing even without seeing it. Faith will us make able to please the Lord each day. We do not see God, but we believe of His presence in our lives.

I wish for FAITH, for it is through this virtue that I will learn to let go of things I have no control of; to live each day without knowing what surprises it may bring to me at the end of the day; to breath the gift of life, uncertain if I'll be lucky enough to live another day; to simply entrust to God everything that I do...I wish for faith not just for me, but as well as for you...

HOPE to experience life in a lifeless situation; to be able to see a glimpse of light in a tunnel of darkness; to be able to see something positive out of an unfortunate situation.

I wish for hope that we may have the courage to go on despite the daily tedious toils in life; that we hold on to someone's promise, no matter how long will it take to fulfillment; and that we experience gladness of heart despite problems around us.



I wish for love to be fully manifested in our day to day living. That we promise to give a little dose of love each day we live. And that we do everything out of love.

A simple hug; a little note of comfort tugged in a books; a smile; a prayer offered for somebody; a call to a friend - and many other simple things that we took for granted - let's begin to express and do them with love.

      Great Hub.  Lovely writing.  I pray that God enriches my life as well with these three attributes.  If I had three wishes, my first wish would be to be allowed more wishes :)

      When I posed the question 'IF YOU HAD 3 WISHES, WHAT WOULD YOU WISH FOR?', I never expected to get a spiritual answer back from readers.

      mclaire74 and MrMarmalade who have both blessed me (and I hope many others) with such beautiful ideals.

      Both of your words are so very precious and lovely.

      You have both touched me greatly and I would like to bless you with some words I have written entitled, TO GOD BE THE GLORY's the website address and here's another for you entitled THANK YOU JESUS

      I greatly value both of your contributions.

      Hubbers, I'm looking forward to hearing about any other 3 wishes you may have....maybe there are wishes you have about things you would like for your loved ones or for our world.....maybe you wish for something personal that you would like to have in your life.....if you let me know what your special wishes are, perhaps we could try to make them come just never know what's waiting out there for you!

      Thank you so much

      Warm Regards

      Faith hope and love

      I pray to God that we will always carry those three desires in our heart sould and mind.

      We must thank God for the good things that happen to us on a daily basis.

      this morning my car was nearly hit by some elses car. I believed that god saved me from serious accident. Mind you I also fell down six stairs this morning. I do not believe God caused that. I was careless. But i did thank god for getting through this morning saved from serious injury.
