Just a heads up that I will be on The Frank Pastore Show, KKLA Los Angeles, this Friday night. Don't know the exact time yet but as soon as I do, I will post. Thank you, Frank and Gina, for your wonderful friendship and support.

I was thinking about a song today that came out a while back--it's funny how God brings things to mind when He wants to tell you something. It's a song by Ray Boltz:

When others see a shepherd boy, God may see a king
Even though your life is full of ordinary things
In just a moment, He can touch you, and everything will change

When others see a shepherd boy, God may see a king

So many times people say to me, "It's an honor to meet you," and I am always touched by their words because I know it has nothing to do with me and everything to do with my father. And the truth is, I am honored to meet them and very grateful for their kindness. I've always been puzzled by the whole media fame thing--especially in the Christian world. I guess I believe that we, of all people, should know how little it means to God.

Famous or not, every one of us is valuable to Him . . . in Christ, the playing field is level. A friend of mine drives a Special Ed School Bus, and she told me what a wonderful Easter she had last year when she went to see one of her students in a big Easter production. He was playing a shepherd, and it was such a moving moment when he came onstage--all the more so because he has Down Syndrome.

I thought about this story all day today--so touched by the thought of this little boy in his shepherd costume. And God brought this song to mind . . . .

How amazing is it that God made each of us unique? How moving is it that He loves us no matter what we do, and sees us in a far different way then the world sees us?

On my worst day, I may feel like a shepherd boy, (and the world may treat me like one) but the truth is that "When others see a shepherd boy, God may see a king . . . ."

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!"
1 John 3:1
