What’s YOUR Impossible?

Thinking Funny

The opening shot of Lauren Woolstencroft’s Super Bowl Commercial shows her as an infant born with two half legs and one and a half arms.

My first thought was, “That poor little thing.”

Then, when the commercial tells us that the odds of her winning a gold medal are 1 in 997,500,000, it occurs to me I’m about to see how this ‘poor little thing’ won a gold medal, something that my four-full-limbed barely athletic body never even came close to accomplishing.

A peaceful walk through the many fields of abundance in this life

Rare beauty easily seen woven into such intrigue of mystery

A hummingbird sips on a backyard feeder one cold frosty morning

The eyes watch, the heart tugs at purpose and deepest meaning,

Yet, the body, the mind of the world pulls away

Lets go of these precious moments when we marvel

Stand in awe as children, child-like once more

While hands of trust take hold of what draws us near,

Riches the world cannot offer

True wealth hidden, ready to be shown,

A gift that patiently waits, quietly as early morning dew

Sparkles of jewels, silver and gold upon the earthly grasses,

Even time stands still

Then steps aside for a greater reality of an eternal crown

A kiss of Heaven’s Truth sweet upon the lips
