I was born on Christmas day in 1948 and when I was around 10 years old my hero was Superman. I can remember watching it on our black and white TV. It was a very popular show back then and kids like me looked up to this man of steel that was as the advertisement says, "Faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound."

I remember one Saturday after watching an episode of Superman I got one of Mama's bath towels and tied it around my neck like the cape of Superman and would pretend I could fly just like my hero.

I even convinced myself that with this bath towel and faith in Superman I could really fly.

I climbed up in the barn loft and got the courage to test that faith and cape of courage made of cotton and jump from our old barn loft in hopes I could fly.

Guess what, I hit the ground without a scratch or a broken bone. I found out I couldn't fly to my regret.

You might be thinking right now, I would have never told that on myself. But, think about this if you will. How many of us have put our faith and trust in things besides Christ for our salvation such as our works or our goodness. That's more ridicules than thinking you can fly
