My thoughts on Britney.
Personally, I love her.
Not afraid to admit it.
As a Christian, I used to feel guilty admitting that, like it was taboo to say that. But I've finally learned to say whatever! Sure, I don't agree with everything that has gone down in her life. And I don't agree with some of the raunchy lyrics and dance moves she has. Ok, all of the raunchy lyrics and dance moves that she has. But as disastrous as her life has become, I can't help but feel sorry for her and root for her like an underdog and pray that she will one day use her spotlight for God's glory and goodness like I know is in her Southern Baptist roots.
Over Thanksgiving weekend, I read her mom's book and was impressed how much she was vocal about her own walk with Christ and the strength she gained from Him to battle all the "storms" her family has been through. She's the first to admit, she nor her family are perfect, but how thankful she was for Jesus' continued grace. She also shared from the heart her personal prayers for her children. But of course, that's the part that was left out the press when buzz was generating about the book. Instead of course, the press nit picked about the dramas on their walk of fame. Oh how people are so quick to critique and judge a book by it's cover instead of looking for the best in someone and realizing we all have our different battles we struggle with.. spotlight or no spotlight. (A hard lesson I'm learning myself these days on the other side of this blogging world.)
For a laugh, on Britney's website, you can create these stinkin' funny videos casting yourself in a Britney video, so I couldn't help but upload a photo and star in "Lucky." (I chose that one b/c it's my mom's dog's name!) Click the image to go to my video, I couldn't embed the video itself here.
