Stuff I Like In The South And American Idol

Kurt really likes his wife a whole lot | north texas lake sailing n wave-running | roxy the intensely wild hound dog that no one else will have | mountain-biking | road trips with flip flops on to austin or to east texas | the coop, a fitness center | the byron nelson classic | nascar at the tex motor speedway | disc golf with friends | uncle julio’s tex-mex | sushi n sashimi at kenichi, oishi, steel or nobu | raspberry sweet tea | many great bible teaching christian churches with warmhearted southerners in em | live righteous electronica and alternative bands that have something to say | non-weird but fitting worship music and celebration at church with family | college student buds | american airlines center during spring time evenings | bodark n live oak trees | telling my story of hope face to face to kids etc.. (yea, I like all this stuff but not particularly in this order, cuz I reall love fellowshiping with Christ the most by a long shot)!

Congrats to Kris Allen for winning on American Idol this time around! Yeah; way to go! The Bible says, “Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom” (Eccl. 9:10). My wife, Liney, and I actually caught a little of it, but we always like talent shows with young people.

I don't know if you saw Kris sing. But this is pretty cool because I was told that Kris is a real Christian. Thank you for listening America and for helping him; for rooting for him! 

Lets all pray for Kris too as our country continues to say congratulations to him that he can fully take advantage of this wonderful opportunity not for self so much but to please and glorify Christ ..when others might not want to do that because the big bucks and all the fame become so important with this type of platform.

I don't know how the people who win in such events can even handle all the pressures etc--I can't even imagine that kind of thing.

And in a day when idols are so prevalent (..for real, not so much like the carved figures of Old Testament times), but we do need to pray that Kris will be so blessed and that he will use this time with his fans uncompromisingly ..yes, with his amazing talent to simply point Americans and others back to the Bible and to Christ who gave him this beautiful gift. He has worked so hard and has obviously spent a lot of time developing this gift. Sure wish I could sing like him. America, way to go! You got it right with Kris this time!

Perhaps, like me, you are a one-talent kind of person and feel a bit discouraged to even try and use your skill for eternal purposes. Please pray about that thoroughly until you feel motivated or not feel so motivated (sometimes the motivation comes after we start. But go for it and do what you can for Him) .

Do you personally know (not just about..) the One who Kris knows, loves and serves--Jesus Christ? You can!
