Natalie will be featured this Thursday on “The 700 Club”. Make sure to tune in. You can check their website to find out when to watch in your area here.
Okay – So check this out. My guitar player found this on youtube. Star magic?
Who woulda thunk?! It’s basically the “american idol” of the Philippines. Too
funny. for those of you who don’t know, they are singing my song, “Keep On
Shining”, from 2001. It was my first “popular” Christian radio single. Maybe now
i can get a T-shirt that says “I’m big in the Philippines.” Just kidding. I’m
actually humbled to know that the music is reaching around the globe, even if it
is old music.
Speaking of American Idol, do you have any favorites from this year? I haven’t
been following it much this year, and have only caught it 3 times, but from what
I’ve seen, I really think David Cook is great. Solid voice and very commercial,
relevant sound. Maybe finally a rocker will win it. What do you think?
I went shopping today. So theraputic. and I had some wonderful company along with me which made the day that much sweeter. Two of our dear friends from england are staying with us. Charlotte is speaking at the Mercy Ministries 25th Anniversary Conference this weekend, and her husband and kids came along. They are from Abundant Life Church in Bradford, England. check them out.
I met Charlottle at a conference i did in Los Angeles about 3 years ago. We hit it off brilliantly and became fast friends. It was a total God thing. Bernie and I have now been to their church and it changed our lives. Talk about examples of servanthood. They are relevant yet still totally true to the gospel. She’s the kind of friend who speaks truth into your life but isn’t overbearing. She can be fun and silly, yet never shallow. we all need a friend like that in our lives.
The truth is, I’m not good at having a lot of friends. sure, I’m outgoing and bubbly and seemingly a “people-person”. But the truth is that I’m actually quite a loner. Maybe it’s having to be “on” all the time, I don’t know, but I have few close friends. but those I have I cherish deeply.
Do you have that kind of friend? Do you have many friends or just a few close ones? Just curious.
As for me, I’m off to have a spot of tea, as my british friend would say.
