No Christmas in July. No sketch challenges. Just picking up some paper out of that famous box of scraps and using my imagination today. I was thinking about a question concerning "wishes". Are prayers and wishes one in the same? Here is where I would love to hear your response.
According to Dictionary.com and Wikipedia, wishes = to want; desire; long for (usually followed by an infinitive or a clause):I wish to travel. I wish that it were morning; to desire (a person or thing) to be (as specified): to wish the problem settled; to entertain wishes, favorably or otherwise, for: to wish someone well; to wish someone ill; to bid, as in greeting or leave-taking: to wish someone a good morning. to request or charge: I wish him to come. In fiction a wish is a supernatural demand placed on the recipient's unlimited request. When it is the center of a tale, the wish is usually a template for a morality tale, "be careful what you wish for"; it can also be a small part of a tale, in which case it is often used as a plot device. One can wish on many things for example: wishing wells, dandelions when one blows the seeds or light them on fire, stars and much more. When one wishes in a well he or she throws money in, in the hope his or her wish comes true, and the money normally goes to a charity. Some cultures have customs in which people are encouraged to "make a wish", such as blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, seeing a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a wishing well or fountain or breaking the wishbone of a cooked turkey. Many believe such wishes can only come true if they are kept a secret from other people. Others, on the other hand, believe that wishes come true only if they are told to someone else.
Here are two cards I'm sharing today: I opened the scrap box and pulled out items that went together. white and gray cardstock; gold cardstock; a piece of frame cut from a Spellbinders die; The only new item was words cut from Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits word die.
Back to the original question: Are prayers and wishes one in the same?
