Inspirational Picks of the Week

If you’re my friend on Facebook, you’ve very likely seen my posts on these things already.  But I was so inspired by them that I wanted to extend them to those of you who are friends here in Blog Land.  I hope you find at least one thing here that makes you smile or stirs your heart (or both)!

Let’s start with a little music.  Here are a few selections to put you in the mood to celebrate Christmas and worship Jesus...

Silent Night:  This is a beautiful rendition of this song, and here it is accompanied by a gorgeous, flowing ballet.

Christmas This Year:  I love Christian music artist Toby Mac and this fun Christmas song doesn’t disappoint.  I just makes me want to get up and dance and clap my hands! 

O Night Divine:  If you watched America’s Got Talent, you no doubt have heard of Jackie Evancho.  At the time of her appearance on the show, she was 10 years old – but God has blessed her with the voice of an angel far beyond her earthly years.  Here she is singing at the National Tree Lighting (and listen to the short interview at the end – she is a delightful young lady)!

And now, let’s move on to some things that will make your heart swell with joy and will give you hope for the future generations to come!

The Biggest … Loser?  Well, Dan (and his mom Jackie) may have been big losers when it comes to their weight, but when it comes to getting over life’s hurdles and passionately pursing his dream – I’d say Dan is definitely a Big Winner!  

Here’s their story:  
And here’s his first music release:  

Victoria’s Not-So-Secret – Sure, supermodels make selling clothes, make-up, and a million other things very profitable.  But what is this standard of beauty doing to our youth today?  Here is a young man who attends Baylor University in Waco, Texas – he has a different outlook on what a REAL woman is:  

Ever been to a poetry slam?  I haven’t, but I’ve watched a couple of videos and this one is one of my favorites.  I may be old in years, but never too old to learn (and pass on) this lesson:

And from Blog Land, my favorite post this week:

May you all be richly blessed through this next week, and continue to remember what CHRISTmas is about.
