Susan Boyle inspires the world on "Britian's Got Talent"

In case you somehow missed it, here is a link to one of the most inspiring vidoes in a long time. (I would embed this, but unfortunately, the embedding was requested to be disabled by someone.)

This video shows, Susan Boyle, an unemployed 47 year old cat owner who has never been kissed, on the show, "Britian's Got Talent"--the precursor show to American Idol. No one expected anything from this woman. People were ready to laugh at her. But listen to what happened.

What an inspiration! This story and video needs to be shown. It made me think of how God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Surprising things. Amazing things. Inspiring things.

What do you think of Susan Boyle's performance? How do you think this story could apply to us spiritually?

Susan Boyle reminds us all that you never really know what makes everyone special and unique. I wonder if she checked groceries at Walmart what pre-suppositions we might have about her? Everyone has some talent, no matter how lowly they may appear...or how badly in need of a makeover they are! Everyone deserves to be treated as someone special, because they are, even if they're special-ness isn't readily apparent to the rest of us.

So true, Eva. We should seek to find the good and value in every person and look beyond appearances. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
