For years, our family has cherished the words, songs and paintings of Joni Eareckson Tada. This morning, DH played for me a song she sings for a movie that hasn't received much publicity-- Alone Yet Not Alone. The title song has been nominated for an Oscar. The video in which she sings includes clips from the movie, but more importantly, begins with her praying for strength to sing the song. Joni, her prayer, and her voice have never been so beautiful.
The secular world is not only shocked by the nomination, but also outraged, claiming that "backroom deals" have led to this nomination. Moreover, we are to dismiss the song because it has been "endorsed" by James Dobson. I don't know any other song which has been maligned for simply being nominated. The world can protest all it wants to, but the Lord and His Message will not be silenced.
Please take a second to search on the internet for this song and give it a listen. I'm sure you'll love hearing her sing and her profound testimony.
