Childlikeness, friendship, love, and community are simple elements of life, but they can be very powerful. A group of boys could only savor the joy of watching football played by kids their age on a small t.v. screen. That joy became their passion to build their own football team -- soccer as we know it -- but when an older person in their fishing village told them to look around, reality brought their dream to a big halt. How is it possible to play football when their houses stand on stilts that rise above the water there on the southern tip of Thailand?
I hope you enjoyed this short film. Thanks to YouTube for allowing good inspirational films, such as this one, to be available for viewing.
One's dream may seem colossal and unreachable but determination -- out of childlikeness, friendship, love, and community among other essentials of life -- is what it takes to reach a dream in a place where space or amenities is limited. Let's bring our dream to prayer and meditate on how we may reach its fulfillment.

If anyone wondered where I disappeared to, I had to be in a place called "healing" -- a beautiful place where I could revisit many things, dreams being on of them, so I may bring those dreams to prayer to see how God might want them fulfilled. I thank you for your love and patience!
