Penny Loafer!

A few weeks go as I ambled toward the parking lot while heading to my car, an object caught my eye. The item in question glistened under the searing midday rays of the sun. Immediately, I became enthralled by curiosity and found myself drawn to this object in a hypnotic state like a moth drawn to a light on a front porch. When I came within striking distance I realized that the item which shimmered in the distance was simply a spherical copper penny. This penny was covered in dirt, tattered, and bent out of shape. A penny in this condition may even be deemed by some to be insignificant, not salvageable, or not worth picking up!

How often do we feel like that penny? How often do we feel that we are insignificant, purposeless, unwanted, broken, or even worthless?

The truth is, that we are all special. No two people are exactly alike. Please excuse me as I let my inner nerd loose for a brief moment. Scientists estimate that there are roughly between 10-50 trillion cells in the human body. In order for two individuals to be exactly the same each one of those trillion or so cells would need to be exactly the same size, type, and location.

We all are fearfully and wonderfully made. We have been intricately designed a specific way for a specific purpose.

“A human being is a single being. Unique and unrepeatable.” – Eileen Caddy

Your importance in this world is to copious to be tabulated, calibrated or elucidated!
