Someday, one day
Time’s not so far away
We can share the dreams we planned
Craig’s the manager at our local ‘Jolly Sailors’. Last week, on the front page of The Lowestoft Journal:
‘…I went to put the roast potatoes on when I realised we were out of cooking oil. Just about to head to our local shop to grab some, Debbie asked me to go to the Co-Op instead so I could drop off some washing at the launderette on the way.
‘…I decided to treat us both to a National Lottery ‘12 Pays of Christmas’ scratchcard.
‘…if it weren’t for cooking oil and that bag of dirty laundry, I wouldn’t have been in the right place at the right time and we wouldn’t now be banking £100,000 a month for a year.’
Yesterday Sam Ryder was on our local news. For years he was an unknown singer dreaming of success… working for his dad’s carpentry business, running a vegan juice bar…
He gained recognition during COVID lockdown through TikTok. This year he represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest. ‘Someday, one day’ became a reality.
Someday my prince will come
Someday I’ll find my love
And how thrilling that moment will be
When the prince of my dreams comes to me
Snow White dreams… Someday, one day, she’ll meet her handsome prince… love will change her life forever.
The narrative of Jesus’ birth starts with prophecies. Someday, one day, the prince will come… We tell the story of the baby in the manger; we sing ‘The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.’ Dreams have come true, the lottery’s won, hopes are realised.
Musing… I don’t dream of winning the lottery or international fame… but somehow, through an ancient mystery, the hopes of ‘someday, one day’ becomes reality; I re-discover that ‘Where meek souls will receive him, still the dear Christ enters in’; love changes my life forever.

Our very handicapped daughter often talks about “someday”
When you really think about it, the hope behind the message is quite phenomenal. The love behind that hope messes with my mind but grab on for dear life.
Thanks Gary. I agree – it isn’t clear cut and straightforward. Why some ‘somedays’ seem to be delayed are difficult to understand. At times God’s timing or ‘best plan’ are certainly beyond me. You’re right. We cling on by faith – and retain hope.
