This is my list of improbabilities.  The thing is, even though they are improbable, I’ve actually experienced some of these realities.  I have experienced a Love that wins over addiction and shame and failure, and just last night I ate the most amazing low-calorie dessert called Paradise Pie.  I’ve wept and laughed while watching reality television, and even been motivated by it to make changes in my life.  I have actually chewed Doublemint gum before every date in my new dating adventure.

My friend, Al Andrews, also believes in improbabilities.  He has created The Improbable Philanthropist — “a dream of acquiring the financial resources to contribute generously to various non-profitis around the world that are making an impact for good.”  He’s written a book — a wonderful, heart-warming, beautiful, poignant story that you will want to read over and over and over to your children, and then again to yourself to remind you that God uses everything to tell us the only thing — that He loves us.  His book is called The Boy, the Kite, and the Wind.

For $16.95 you can buy this amazing book and change the world a little.  Improbable?  Yes.   Possible?  Absolutely!  Check it out for yourself at  For every book you order and reference this blog, I will match your order.  After your purchases (buy one for yourself and one to give away!) on the website, send an email letting them know you’re making the order after hearing about it from me.  Let’s live in the improbable!  I agree with Al — why should Bill Gates have all the fun?

“[It’s} a sight to take your breath away!  Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God! Romans 10, The Message.
