Loved it. Made me cry.Dave
This is incredible! I just finished watching it for the second time, and reading the words to the song. In an age and a culture that seemingly values put downs and celebrates degredation in ever increasing degrees, how refreshing and hopeful and promising to see this encounter of hope and encouragement! It does my heart good! :):):)
That was a very nice way to start the day. Thank you for sharing.You can never tell what is in a person by just looking at them. That was a wonderful reminder.WoW!
It is funny and sad at the same time. Sad for her that she was instantly written off and funny for everyone else that was just made a fool of because of their assumptions. That was terrific!
I had even seen that before and it still gave me chills watching it again. Beautiful indeed.-Dan
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." -1 Samuel 16:7What I loved about this woman, is that she was so cute and comfortable in her own skin. The disdain and the obvious lack of faith in her abilities didn't seem to phase her. She was straight forward, funny, odd and perfectly at home in herself and her love for singing. Even in the critique part she seemed oblivious to the realities the judges were focusing on....she just smiled in her grandmotherly way, as if to say: "Oh you poor little childish souls, so caught up in the insecurities and immaturity's of the schoolyard...when will you grow up, beauty and talent are on the inside too?"I didn't think the judges were giving her anything she didn't already have within herself and that's what was so beautiful to me. She didn't need them (or us) to validate her...they needed her to show them their own smallness of vision."God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong" -1 Corinthians 1:27
