If you'd told me a couple of years ago, I'd be appearing in a big cathedral with a full orchestra and choir and with a former Miss World—I’d have laughed. Don't be silly.
I never would have beleived you.
But then again, if you'd told me I'd be "Playing the Ryman" I wouldn't have beleived that either.
I'm learning what I expect or think or imagine is beside the point - and usually way too small.
So anyway, there I was, that Sunday morning last December, driving to The Crystal Catherdral to be interviewed by Bobby Schuller about my new book "Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing" - in two services that are broadcast to millions.
I was driving along when suddenly I had to pull over. There, smiling out at me from the side of the road was a face in lights - a face I knew - me smiling back at me. Obviously I had to stop and take a photo.
Next I parked in the campus. Took some more photos. And then I met the friendliest, most generous people, who welcomed me and fed me and prayed for me. I had make up and hair done, trotted up some steps in between some pastors and out into the cathedral - and the service.
It was wild. It was nothing I ever expected. And it was a total blast. I can't wait to go back!
Here is the video of it. (Miss World comes ater me.)
