Impossible Bottles

One of my many random hobbies is putting things into bottles.  I know, exciting isn’t it?  I think it’s a lot of fun to do and even more fun to look at the final product.  I have a couple of rules when making impossible bottles:

1) Everything has to go through the mouth of the bottle (no cheating and cutting the bottle)

2) Each item must contain what it is supposed to contain (e.g. the card boxes must contain cards)

As you can imagine, each bottle takes quite a while to make, which gives me a lot of time to think.  One thought I had is that the objects in the bottles are rather ordinary, but the fact that they are in a bottle makes them extraordinary.  Isn’t that a bit like each of us?  I have seen “ordinary” people do some pretty amazing things when they are placed in the right situations.  The funny thing is that the situations or circumstances they are placed in often seem impossible.  Have you ever looked at where you are in your life and thought, “Just look at my life.  I have too much to do and too little time to do it.  Lord, why are you expecting the impossible from me?”  Just remember that it’s only impossible if you try to do it alone.  “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
