The YouTube video I embedded on this blog yesterday was found and sent on to me by my daughter Fi, who is part of the household where I live. She is becoming my in-house researcher. This morning when I woke up - having held hands with my sweetie and chatted and prayed together and had our morning kiss, he went off to work out on the Wii Fit and take a shower, and I groped for my laptop to check out correspondence.
And there was this email from Fi (she has the room underneath ours but, hey, sometimes email is good...). The subject line of her email was 'something to ponder', and she sent me this link, adding 'see what you think of this lady'.
It was the same yesterday when she sent me the Song Around the World video, saying she thought I might like it. Like it? Like it? It blew my mind! I watched it four times straight through, posted it everywhere and it totally transformed my day!
Same with this thing that she sent me today. It's a 20 minute talk. There is more wisdom in that 20 minutes than most of us could reach in 20 years. I will download this. I will watch it again. I will remember it. I will store it in my heart.
Basically, this video tells me what I need to know. It is a gift of God to me, and an answer to prayer. So I thought you might like to have the chance to share it too.
