The day I celebrated my 69th birthday, I began making this statement in my road shows, “Next year I will be 70.” My wife Diane challenged me, “Why would you say that? 70 is still 365 days away. Why in the world would you use that number now?” Here is why I did it.
Hey! WAKE UP! It’s Lighten up Monday! Remember, Jesus is always watching. This clip is taken from one my favorite DVDs, Together Again. Enjoy!
I spoke these words at a staff meeting. “I want to do a contest for my most faithful fans and give the winner…
- A trip to Nashville,
- Dinner at a nice restaurant with Diane and me,
- A night at the Opryland Hotel, and
- A treasure chest of every product I have ever developed.
“I want to make the contest mysterious and outrageously fun” I exclaimed. My team sat stunned. Finally someone said, “Are you out of your mind?”
It’s another Lighten Up MONDAY! There are two clips in today’s post. The first clip was filmed in about 1990 in front of 11,000 people and the second was filmed about 21 years later and became part of a motion picture titled Fully Alive.
They are both on the same subject but end up going in different directions. I thought you might like to see how the emphasis of a story grows and changes over the years.
This clip was taken from the DVD, Healing the Wounded Heart. For more info or to purchase, click here.
This second clip starts out the same but hang in there – see if you can see the subtle changes and the different direction the clip took at the end.

Imagine having the power to move people to take action.
