Anything is possible


“I think you could do with a bridge.”

It is my filling-appointment.  A big old filling needing repair – perched like the latest all-ready-to-breakaway-icesheet – propped up for now with some drilling and filling.

“The gap between those two teeth will always attract food, and that means decay.”

A bridge costs @ £250.00 I am told.  I have inter-dental brushes.  Just not one the size of a yard brush.

I say I will have a chat with my wife and exit the surgery with the numbness impeding proper speech.

“You had an injection.”  My wife says when I relay the advice.

Proper speech still some way away.

“Do whatever you think is best.”

That phrase has been rattling around my thoughts this morning:

The gap … always attract … means decay.

Bridging the gap would mean both teeth touching – which brings greater strength to both – and allows no gap – so no attracting – so no decay.

Why does that remind me of a piece I saw on Facebook the other day?

“Christians and Muslims find common ground
as Perth church hosts Ramadan(click for link)

And this profound observation:

It’s a fear that actually this change is going to take us somewhere outside of our comfort zone.  But actually, if only it could be embraced, is taking us where our deepest desire wants us to be – and that is at one with all.”

And as I googled to find that piece I came upon others.

Faith overcoming religion – other saying this: “Human first, religion second.”

Other gaps.  Other bridges.  New comfort zones.  Others embracing change.  Others finding their deepest desire.  At one with all.

Praying the impossible is one thing.

Doing is the key.

Because then anything is possible.

  1. Sounds a lot like Mother Teresa who embraced everyone in their humanness as children of God, she got it. I think of her ministering to the dying in their own love language so to speak. Just beautiful

    • Hi Melissa – “their own love language”. Love that. And then I think how often “we” think “our” love language is the only language everyone else should speak – that everyone else does speak.
      Thank you.
