Two weeks ago, I was invited to be on Daystar's Marcus and Joni show. I posted photos on Facebook and Twitter...and then sort of forgot that my dear BLOG READERS might want to see some highlights.
Sometimes, I wonder about my mental faculties. Well...
It was a THRILL to be on the show, and I'm sorry I held out on you.
You can find a link to the complete show here. My segment starts at about 15:30.
It was a good hair day, carefully planned as to when I shampooed (this was Day Two after washing) so as to have the least amount of pouf.
YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS, PEOPLE!
The real star of the show was this guy, Flash. Seeing his adorable face on the book in Marcus's hands made me pinch myself. This is crazy, folks.
Next time I get my picture taken with famous people, I'll do the hand-on-my-hip-sorority pose so my large sweater poncho doesn't make me look extra wide.
That's a BIG note to self.
One of the most fun parts of the whole experience was that Flash and Henry watched, live, from the barn.
My dauntless husband Tom dragged the TV out there so they could see it.
Then Tom sent photos to the producer, who in turn put them up on the screen...so they even made the broadcast!
I'm talkin' about ya, Flashy!
Hey, now...that's a sharp lookin' donkey!
Flash, Marcus Lamb is discussing your life lessons! That's pretty cool!
Of course, now that it's all over, I think of all the things I should have said.
Oh, how I wish I'd mentioned the specific things I learned from Flash: facing my fears, letting go of the past, finding my passion, and making the most of each day, to name a few.
And I wish I'd said:
Flash taught me that slow and steady steps are the things that make pathways for grace.
It's in those daily small, methodical efforts that the real miracles take place.
Most times, it feels like plodding.
After all, showing up day after day, is hard.
But donkeys, and people like us, aren't afraid of hard things.
We just keep walking.
We just keep working.
We just keep serving, even when nobody sees.
And that's when we experience true grace.
Thank you, Flash.
And thank you, God, for still speaking through donkeys.
I had so many book orders last week, that I'm extending the sale through this week.
They make great gifts, and I hope you'll take advantage and order several for Christmas.
This is awesome: My largest single order to date is FOURTEEN books! That customer got all his Christmas shopping done in one fell swoop!
Anyone want to top it?? :)
