American Idol

Tonight, my granddaughter and I are going on a date. Earlier in the week, I asked her if she wanted to go out to eat or go see a movie. She called me later to inform me that she really wanted to do both. So, I imagine we will eat at Keller Pizza, and then go rent a movie from Blockbuster. Life doesn't get any better.

Beverly and I have been watching American Idol. I love Simon. She doesn't. As a preacher, it's kind of in my blood to spiritualize everything. But aren't you glad that the Godhead is not like the panel on American Idol, where you get one shot to show what you can do? By your performance, you either pass or fail. And your judges are 1. a sarcastic hyper-critic, 2. a sappy, sentimentalist, and 3. (I can't think of words to describe Randy Jackson. He's pretty cool, but not easy to peg.)

Give me the loving, forgiving grace of a God who has invested Himself in us any day!

I don't watch American Idol but I know that I want mercy not justice.

I love Simon too! He gets to the point. And not bad to look at if your female. ha ha!! Ashley actually got a kiss from Simon last season when we got to go to one of the live shows. Of course, it made her day! But I am very grateful God does not judge us as harshly as Simon. If we got one shot, none of us would make it. I'm also thankful we don't have a God like Paula. I'm glad we have a loving, merciful and gracious God. But I'm glad he holds us accountable. We as a people would be sorely lacking if no one ever held us accountable for our actions.
