Mary on Today's Morning News Broadcast! (YouTube Clip)

My daughter, Mary, says that being blind is a "blessing," for she believes what the Bible says: that it's the inside of the person that counts most.

“Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. 
The Lord does not look at the things people look at. 
People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 
-1 Samuel 16:7

About a week ago, we received a call from our local NBC affiliate who saw Mary on a clip and wanted to feature a story about her on the morning news.  Enjoy this clip from this morning's broadcast.

(To hear the whole song, "On My Own," that appeared in snippet form in the above news clip,

"For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Cor 5:7),


  1. How beautiful you are raising up a child who knows who she is, loves God and is proud to be your child. Her children rise up and call her blessed...

    1. What a beautiful note, Fawn! Thank you! I will read it to Mary!

  2. You should be incredibly proud of such a sweet and talented daughter. I'm so glad I listened to this. Bless you.

    1. P.S. I hope you will link this to my Friday TGIF blog hop on Bible Love Notes. I'd like more to hear it.

    2. Thank you Gail for taking your time to tell me that you listened to the clip on Mary! I'm so glad you did! I'd love to post it on your link up. If you send out a reminder, I'd love you to include me at juanamikels(at)gmail(dot)com
