There is buzz over this latest possibility of an Oscar for song, and it makes me smile. Joni Eareckson Tada has been instrumental in this small marvel, and I say marvel because of the field she is pitted against. Yes, but she serves a large God, where nothing is too hard.

Watch the first short vid for the context, then read the article, then watch the second vid; and tell me this is not music from heaven. Joni’s background before her accident, and her anger at God, then her ‘coming to her senses,’ then her living a life of unsurpassed passion for the person of Christ and the truth of His word, is a rare tale.
Years ago, she remarked how she could never have entered a depth of soul, and a relationship with the Lord that she would not trade for all the tea in China, (my words) but you get the point.
For what it’s worth, I am sure I can testify that Joni has no ‘Oscar’ in view, but if it comes her (their) way, she would glorify God. She is the finest example of what a christian is.
Please pass along if it has reached a good place in you. By the way, the film looks pretty darn good also.

More press time yet again. This song obviously has wings.
