Give pure humanity and see what happens

While icing my calf yesterday afternoon, i watched the American Idol recording from the night before. Contestant La’Porsha disrupted the show with a stunning performance.

When judge Keith Urban finally got to speak he referenced a beautiful quote:

“I judge myself not on what i have but what I am willing to give.” What you just gave was pure humanity. It was beautiful.

As if that wasn’t enough, Kelly Clarkson brought everyone to tears three songs later.

PS. Couldn’t find the quote’s (the Keith referenced) author.

PSS. i cried during both songs.

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.

Good morning Donna. The feeling we have after watching a song sung like that…may we teach ourselves to be present enough to feel it constantly.

If Disney ran a Church, pretty sure it could happen.

So, if Disney ran our life…
