Okay. Probably, you are already one of the five million who have watched the latest Britain's Got Talent sensation, Susan Boyle, on YouTube. Or perhaps you saw her performance today on various early morning tv news shows. But I wanted to make certain you didn't miss her.
Oh the lesson she teaches, the one we scarily forget over and over! If we'd stop judging books by covers and people by their appearance, well, we might just find ourselves with more friends, more bliss and more enjoyment from this Life which God has gifted us.
And more inspiration, too. I watch this little Scottish lady who lives alone with her cat and probably has a proper afternoon tea each day and I feel inspired to be more excellent. To always live prepared, willing, to step out in boldness with the gifts God gave me, to share whatever He wishes through me, however He chooses to do so. And maybe He, through me, can change a tiny corner of this planet, as well.
If only I could remember that He knows exactly what He's doing! And that's something else Susan Boyle reminded me, I believe. As the one judge said, "... we were all being very cynical. That was the biggest wake-up call, ever." I so knew what she meant-- I so saw God's design, His lesson, in this moment.
Watch this--even for the second or third time-- and be blessed.
Be sure to notice everybody's cynical looks before Susan's song. Sad, sad, sad......
