Greg and I started watching a new series last night on the OWN station. It is hosted by Oprah and entitled “Oprah’s LifeClass”. Last night Rick Warren, pastor, teaching and author of “The Purpose Driven Life” was on sharing his heart and principles from his many books.  He was right on.  I took away many things from watching the segment.  And no matter what you may have heard or think of Oprah in a negative fashion – I will have to disagree.  I have been so impressed with her.  Yes she is successful and influential – but I don’t believe she abuses her power.  She has given her life to help others, is a true blessing and giver and willingly shares her spot light with so many others.  We have watched many of her episodes and interviews – she gives good solid advice to others and knows first hand what it is like to make something of herself in spite of an abusive past.  It is a great compliment to her when those like Pastor Rick Warren will go on her new series and speak truth.  I believe many were encouraged and helped by the things that both he and Oprah said during the hour.  Below is a snippet from the show.  Be encouraged as you learn the “5 Things that shape you”.

God Bless

Simply The Best – Wynonna Judd

I saw Wynonna last night on Oprah.  I have followed her career ever since she was a teenager and used to tour and sing with her mom, Naomi.  I have marveled at her amazing voice – her incredible ability to connect with her audience – and her courage to get through insane tragedy in her personal life.  Last night she gave the glory to God for helping her make it.  It was refreshing.  It was a broken person who had been to hell and back – and remained strong in her resolve and firm in the hands of God to sustain and lead her back.

In this song below I LOVE what she says at the beginning.  She is indeed “one of the best” – and I bless her for being an incredible role model who is not afraid to be different – say what she means and to be willing to make mistakes and learn from them.  She and her mom are going to be having a final tour this year – with all the new tools they have learned for their difficult and wonderful relationship through the years.  I loved watching them – in a weird sort of way – Wynonna reminds me of my daughter Ashlee – and I am much like Naomi – so I smile at the two of them – especially holding hands in front of the audience – so SWEET!!

Enjoy and God Bless

I call you when I need you, my heart’s on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
Mmm, you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
Mmm, it can’t be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong, baby

You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I’ve ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart no, no, baby, I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I’m here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I’ve ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart no, no, baby, I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You’re walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I’m alone
Oh baby, don’t let go

Ooh you’re the best (woo)
