Jonny Diaz

Jonny Diaz (pronounced Die-Az, not Dee-Az) stopped by the show on Friday and played a few songs live in the K-LOVE studio, including his hit song "More Beautiful You".  We've heard from so many people - especially women - who say the lyrics to that song really resonate with them.  


More Beautiful You

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way 
But her hair isn’t straight her body isn’t fake 
And she’s always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see 
That beauty is within your heart 
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you 
Don’t buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do 
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead 
And you say you’ve got a man but he’s got another plan 
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come 
You starve yourself to play the part 
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And he’ll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you’re not too far 
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who’s strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth 
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

Michael Jackson and Stuff ...

The death of Michael Jackson most definitely evoked memories, emotions and reactions from all that heard the news.  Lisa heard some people on "another" radio station making jokes about Jackson and like many, found it sad and inappropriate.  Doing some googling, came across a blog that articulated a lot of what Lisa shared on K-LOVE this morning.

In my home we are also dealing with a loss, albeit a temporary one.  My wife and kids are gone for the weekend, which is hard on me and really hard on our dog Zack.  He keeps staring at the door waiting for them to come home.  He's so bummed that he won't "go", no matter how much coaxing I do.  Lisa said it's because my wife is "the big dawg" in our house - at least one it comes to our dog.  Got some great advice - one woman shared that my wife should talk to Zack on the phone (I now wish we included our dog in our cell phone family plan).  Another caller suggested I get some Dog Whisperer-type of advice.

Lisa got a chance to participate in a pie eating contest.  Sadly, she didn't win.  But when you get to see a picture of Lisa wearing a plastic trash bag with pie on her face, really everyone's a winner!
