January #jammed : Grace in Life’s Face
Day 6: What Seems Unreal Can Heal.
The signs of my fourth decade approaching are clipping in at a rapid rate …the Trolls are back with clothes, and “unicorn” is used as an adjective. My youngest daughter has asked Santa for a giant unicorn three years in a row, and they are seriously encroaching upon on our existence. Bare with me as I try to piece together the remnants of Facebook pop culture unicorn speak…
“Calling someone an unicorn conveys a sense of mystery and means they stand out from the pack… ” unicornsrule.com
Note: ‘You’re like …so, unicorn’ is a compliment.
“It is a quick way to indicate something is very unlikely to happen…”
Possible hashtag: #whenunicornsfly. Wait, do they? I should ask Lo…
“Just keep in mind that is hard to live up to people’s expectations when they are so enamored with you that they are calling you a mythical creature to your face…”
FYI: Unicorn life = social pressure.
“When you add in a rare color like purple, the person in question must be a one in a million type…”
Lo’s favorite color is purple.
“Purple is traditionally the color of royalty because the first dyes producing this color were far too expensive for anyone else to purchase.”
No wonder she thinks she runs the house.
“Purple unicorns aren’t just unusual or uncommon, they are downright unique. Light shades of purple are also tied with femininity or a softer side.”
And beneath her ability to make everyone smile, is a tender heart that breaks in two for her family and friends …and teachers …and Misty. #unicorn
Jesus is our unicorn.
Rare, but unmistakable, His presence shakes us alive without being typically present. His death on the cross to save all humanity from sin? Highly unlikely …but completely true.
God is funny. Our great God in heaven blessed Sarah with a baby in her old age ..not over thirty-five and “high risk” old …seventy-some years old! Sarah laughed! God’s
incredible miracles are the stuff of imagination. They are the products of His grace, because His heart breaks in two for us … they are “unicorns.”
