NaBloPoMo: Superpowers

I’m combining two prompts into one today:

If you were a superhero, what would be your hidden superpower? and…

As a superhero, would you rather have extreme strength or extreme speed?


Boy. It’s hard to come up with a superpower. On the days that  I am feeling invincible, I’d want a superpower like being able to HEAL someone with a touch. Or provide the perfect analogy to a pressing argument. Or perhaps, to have discernment and help someone see the root of the issue.

And then, I realize, that sounds a lot like Jesus. So I stop lusting after a superpower and go back to being an every day, normal (I think) human being, trying to show love and compassion and make a difference in the world.

Tom Brokaw is quoted as saying, “It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.”

I think I’ll keep pursuing making a difference. I’m up for that challenge.
