Congratulations to Scotty!
On this day, North Carolina is swelling with pride at its new American Idol; Scotty McCreery!
As it should be since Scotty represents us well with his appeal, boyhood southern charm and the depth to which he carries his faith.
Watching the decision being announced and feeling such exhilaration for this young man; his future so bright with infinite opportunities I couldn’t help but ponder how this seventeen year olds life will never be the same.
He will never stroll through the halls of his high school a ‘normal’ student contemplating grades, his class schedule or who he will sit with at lunch. Scotty won’t attend baseball practice to endure batting practice in 90 degree heat or grace his presence at church youth gatherings to just hang out!
No, my friends, life for this spirited Idol has stopped on a dime! And I only pray Scotty holds fast to his strong family Christian roots in the whirlwind existence he will now live out.
Viewing the dramatic shift has caused me to wonder if there has been a moment or circumstance in my life that I could possibly step back and state, ‘My life will never be the same!’ –hmmm, I’ll give it careful thought. In the meantime, I pose the question to you: has there been a circumstance in YOUR life where your life has significantly changed?
I’d love to hear your story.
