Be Open to the Impossible!

Day 7 January 7, 2014

New Beginnings

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”  ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Imagine Six

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -Saint Francis of Assisi

The old divines talked about the gift of faith. It seems to me that there is an earlier gift, a desire, an openness to receive the light when and if it is offered. This openness is a quality of perception like poetry or divination or the wonderful imagination of a happy child.
— Morris West in A View from the Ridge

“Most children are open to extraordinary possibilities.  Because of their limited experience they often  approach situations in life without a predetermined outcome or judgement.  They have the unique ability to be available to ‘the impossible’.   May my own openness become more like that of a child…”    Trish Hernandez

And Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)
