Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year that Canadians from coast to coast look forward to with wonder and longing. No not spring, that’s right it’s time for, a drum roll please, r-r-r-roll up the r-r-rim.
All over our fair country, Canadians are finishing their coffee and with baited breath rolling up the rim of their cups, to see if they are the newest winner of a car, a camera or a donut. And I’ve been doing all right this year because I have won not one but four. . . coffees.
But it took a while, after my fourth or fifth “Please Play Again” of the season, I was thinking, “I don’t have any luck at all.”
Suddenly I realized that I had just spent more money on a cup of coffee than most of the world would spend on food for the day. I live in a beautiful home, have a wonderful family, pastor a great church and I was cursing my luck.
But isn’t that really human nature? So maybe now, before I roll up a rim, I will try to remember how lucky I am, whether I win a coffee, a car or a “Play Again.” Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
