We are blessed to live in America and have wonderful lives where our biggest issue maybe who left the coffee pot on or the likes but this little boy whose life is obviously so difficult found hope that today is the day that the Lord has made- LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!

It was a beautiful wedding with a beautiful bride. It makes me even more excited than before to think we only have 90 days until I also will be a blushing bride waiting to marry the man of my dreams!!
He was so excited he just ran around the apartment. When I tired to make him go to sleep he wasn't having it. I would lay down and pretend to go to sleep and he would crawl up next to me on the floor and ask me to go to sleep! It was a fun night. He is getting to the age where he is so much fun. It is crazy to think I met Pamela when he was only like 5-6 months old! Now he is such a big boy!!

She is the top "trending topic" on Twitter and she is popping up all over the Internet and TV. She dreamed and dream - and it came true. Ask anyone who has viewed the You Tube video of Susan Boyle singing on Britain's Got Talent, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxPZh4AnWyk and they will probably say they were moved to tears. I have watched the video many times over the past week - alone and with other people - and I admit my eyes welled up to overflowing almost every time I saw it.
I thought I was crying because I was witnessing someone extraordinary realizing a lifelong dream. I thought I was moved by the unexpected. But after soul searching this one, I think I discovered that I was was crying because I was ashamed - not so much personally - but on more of a societal level. Have we become so shallow and obsessed with packaging over substance that we discount and overlook anything - anyone - not deemed beautiful? Very telling.
This woman with her bushy eyebrows, unfashionable attire and winning smile had the gumption to walk boldly on stage - apparently unaware of the unspoken code - and share her gift.
At that moment she exposed us all. The hauntingly angelic strains were in stark contrast from the packaging of the person singing them. Why is it so unexpected? Do we think only beauty begets beauty? The more I heard her speak with her gentle spirit, humility, and simple authenticity, the more beautiful she became.
If we don't see past the superficial, thin veneers, it makes me wonder what else we are missing out on.
I've heard God works through people. I think that if Susan Boyle had no greater purpose in life than those few minutes which millions around the planet witnessed one of life's most powerful lessons - that would be enough. She is angel with a message - and an angelic voice - not to be missed.
I personally walk away from reading/writing this and ask myself.."What else am I missing out on?"
