I first heard that warning with the Jesuits. It was often used when someone talked about what they desired and hoped to do one day.
A couple of months ago, after Typhoon Yolanda, we sat in our Monday meeting looking at our show, Green Living, and we asked ourselves: how does what we do, help move our country forward? Four weeks later, I got a call asking if the team could go down to Tacloban to shoot a music video to raise funds to rebuild areas hit by Typhoon Yolanda.
Last week our team flew down to do just that. In one of the last places we were shooting, I was standing behind the two other producers I was with and saw this shot.
“Be careful what you wish for” they used to tell me. And then they’d complete the warning, ” Be careful what you wish for because God may be so good, that He might just give it to you.”
