Nothing’s Impossible

Julia with Hat retouched 450

“Nothing’s impossible if you believe

Your faith will carry you along

Hold on to ev’rything you know

Oh and don’t let go”

Though I wrote the above lyrics for this duet sung by Julia Wade and Cynthia Clawson, this is pure Julia. Perhaps it’s one of the reasons why I married her. She just won’t let go.

For her, life is just one battle to triumph after another and it’s her faith and her bulldog tenacity that often get her through – and her sweetness. It’s an unusual combination, bulldog tenacity and sweetness – not often found working together in us humans. Perhaps that’s what makes Julia so special – the mix of the two and the drive to never give up and always believe in the possible.

“Love will sweep the shadows out

Light your way, cast off the blind doubt

And you’ll find out …

That nothing’s impossible if you believe”


More pure Julia. Oh, she can sometimes have blind doubt, like anybody else, but when she’s pure Julia, the blindness falls away and she’s about as loving as we humans can get. She radiates love. And I’m a lucky guy to be able to exist in the vicinity of that outpouring. It is often the spiritual food that feeds me and gets me through it all.

I’ve not spent much time with Cynthia Clawson. Her husband, Ragan Courtney and I are lifelong buddies, but most of that bonding time was spent together before he met Cynthia and settled down.

However, one long weekend with the two of them more recently recording this song and shooting some accompanying video was all it took to see that Cynthia ain’t just actin’ a song here, but lives this message every day as well. She also just radiates love.

So this isn’t just a song with some positive words and a catchy melody here. This is the essence of this CD. This IS two wise women who practice what they preach every day, and though in the song they’re talking to one another, they’re really talking to all of us.

Nothing’s impossible. Pretty heady words … Can we really triumph over anything that comes our way? Well, of course, then there’s the big IF. “If you believe …”

 “Believe in what?” you ask. Just believe, is the answer. That’s what faith is all about. Faith is for when you have nothing – no answers, no solutions, no hope, no clarity, no guts, no dreams. So …

Be beyond the sea of doubt

As you live and breathe

Have faith. Just believe. Believe you can do it, have it, make it, find it, own it, create it. Believe in the wondrous world of yourself.

Hold to this each and ev’ry day

Nothing can take this faith away

Ev’rything is possible when you believe

Down in your soul

So celebrate!

“Celebrate when you have nothing?” you ask. Sure. Why not? Have faith, for God’s sake.

Nothing’s impossible!

Nothing’s Impossible

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Julia

Once I let good fortune fashion my life

I played the spinning wheel

And sometimes I lost and sometimes I won

As luck would have it

Cynthia

Uh huh …

Life was just feast then famine

Julia

Then I stumbled on the truth

Took the life I had and signed out

Both

I’d find out … that

Julia

Nothing’s impossible if you believe

Cynthia

I know what you mean…

Julia

Your faith will carry you along

Cynthia

All through your life

Both

Hold on to ev’rything you know

Oh and don’t let go

Julia

Nothing’s impossible if you believe

Cynthia

       If you just believe

Julia

Ev’rything is possible for you

Cynthia

Both

Hold to this each and ev’ry day

Nothing can take this faith away

 

Ev’rything is possible when you believe

Down in your soul

Be beyond the sea of doubt

As you live and breathe

Life turns not upon the luck of the draw

That’s what the wise ones say

So follow your heart and bring it to pass

Whatever beckons

Yeah …

Life works when truth is natural

Light your way, cast off the blind doubt
