Bootleg Gundam Wing model kit - “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.”

Sometimes fact is more mysterious than fiction. I clipped a newspaper
article several years ago which tells a story that is strange... and

Stan heard in church about a Denver, Colorado (USA) family facing a
rather bleak Christmas holiday. Medical bills robbed them of any
extras; they would not even have a tree. Stan's pastor asked him if he
would get them that tree.

So Stan and his son Jay headed up into the Colorado Rockies in the
family pickup. However, the truck skidded off the icy road and hit a
boulder that shattered the windshield. Jay was showered by glass
slivers and suffered from shock and crash trauma. Stan was uninjured,
though somewhat shaken.

Cars sped past that day -- maybe 200 of them. Only two stopped to
help. A gentle, dark-haired woman took the boy into her car to comfort
him while her husband and another man helped Stan move his truck off
the road. Then this kind couple drove father and son to Stan's home
and quietly left without identifying themselves.

Stan was discouraged that he was unable to cut a tree for the family
that his church was trying to help. But later in the month, the pastor
asked if Stan might deliver a food basket to the same unfortunate
family. He found the house, but he could hardly find his speech when
the door opened. For standing there before him was the same couple who
had stopped to help him on the mountain road when so many others had
passed him by.

There is a strange power in love. Some folks may call it an amazing
coincidence. Others might say it was divine providence. But I choose
to think that love has its own power, and that sometimes these kinds
of mysteries are better left unanalyzed. Let them remain mysteries.
And enjoy the wonder of it all. For whenever we choose to be kind, we just might be surprised by joy.
