After Being Told He Can’t Sing About Jesus, Vince Gill Steps On Stage And Belts Out Popular Gospel

[sociallocker id=”16351″]Vince Gill is a famous country singer, as well as a musician and a songwriter.

With songs like When I Call Your Name, Whenever You Come Around, and Don’t Let Our Love Start Slipping Away in his discography, it’s safe to say that many are happy to hear his voice when he performs on stage – no matter what song he is singing.

But Gill, a devout Christian, was almost stopped from performing a song he very much wanted to play on the stage of Grand Ole Opry alongside the band Little Big Town – all because he was singing about Jesus.

The good news is, he stuck it out and defied the rules he was giving, which resulted in a stunning and touching performance.

Gill was born in Oklahoma back in 1957. His music career began with the Pure Prairie League, a rock band, and he eventually moved on to becoming a solo artist in the ‘80s.

In recent years, he moved on to make and perform gospel music within the country genre, catering to his faith and passion.

Gill’s love of music may have stemmed from his father, who, despite being a judge and lawyer, was also part of a country band local to their area.

It is from his father that Gill learned to play multiple different musical instruments and received the encouragement he needed to go forward with a music career.

But he’s not just your average singer. Gill is the proud owner of a whopping 18 Country Music Association Awards and Grammy Awards.

Alongside other famous, genre-defining hit-makers like Dolly Parton, he was also inducted into something many performers in his field only dream of: the Country Music Hall of Fame.

So how could anyone deny this talented, brilliant artist the right to sing the song he wanted at a performance?

When he was invited to play at the Grand Ole Opry stage during Little Big Town’s induction, he was told not to perform religious songs – namely, songs about Jesus.

But Gill had become more known for his gospel songs in recent years – so why should he not?

Ignoring these rules, Gill sang an absolutely wonderful performance of Why Me Lord, which was performed by Johnny Cash back in 1968.

Gill’s voice was full of emotion, ringing clear, true, and with resounding beauty throughout the crowd.

It was so amazing and incredible that, when he was done, the whole crowd gave him a standing ovation!

It seemed that no one else cared much that he had sung a song about Jesus, or a Christian song.

They were all simply happy to hear his voice and live through his melody and passion.

Though different award shows have different rules, it’s safe to say that the managers for this show didn’t quite iron out their details well enough.

Gill’s decision to perform a song true to his faith and musical style is truly brave, and not everyone would have had the guts to defy orders this way.

Then again, when you’re in the Country Music Hall of Fame, you get to make your own rules sometimes![/sociallocker]

Unemployed Woman Living Off Government Benefits Has Shameless Request For Taxpayers

A woman who was last employed when she was 19 years old and receiving benefits from the government is apparently using taxpayer money to fund the wedding of her dreams.

The Daily Mail reports Anna Broom, a resident of the UK, has received more than $150,000 from government benefits over the last 14 years.

Mrs. Groom is now 33 years old. She is now asking for $15,000 additional dollars to pay for a wedding at an English castle.

Broom listed a horse and carriage, a designer dress, and enough champagne for 50 guests among the things she needs for her wedding.

Groom told another media source she needs $3,000 to honeymoon in Mexico after her wedding.

Broom says she has dreamed of the day she would become a bride since she was 12 years old. She says she deserves the big church wedding and a reception at a castle.

She says she cannot afford to pay for these things with her benefit payments and is unable to work due to her weight.

Broom says she would possess the motivation to lose some weight if she knew her wedding day was approaching and she would be the center of attention.

Broom dropped out of school when she was 16. She says she applied for a number of jobs without any luck and eventually gave up the search.

The young woman turned to binge eating and a year later weighed nearly 240 pounds.

A doctor decided she was unable to work due to back problems and depression.

 

15-year-old science buff invents test with 100% accuracy rate for early pancreatic cancer detection

[sociallocker id=”16351″]Jack Andraka. You may not know his name, but you certainly should.

In this world where social media ‘influencers’ are promoted for their style of clothing or the way they look, too few people like Jack are celebrated as they should be.

At the tender age of just 15, Jack Andraka invented his own medical breakthrough that has the potential to save an untold number of lives.

He created a device with the ability to detect pancreatic cancer far earlier than had previously been possible, and that could mean the difference between life and death for a large portion of sufferers.

The young inventor, from Crownsville, Maryland, was inspired to work on his project after witnessing the death of a close friend from pancreatic cancer. He understood that much of the issue lay in the fact that late-stage pancreatic cancer detection is virtually a death sentence, while when detected early it is possible for someone to survive it.

And so Andraka began his journey to forge a way of detecting the cancer earlier. During his research, he found that the most up-to-date method of detection was 60 years old. This, of course, was unacceptable.

So he worked to invent a method that is, according to reports, 168 times faster, 26,000 less expensive, and 400 times more sensitive. Oh, and it’s 100% accurate, compared to the 70% the older method promised.

Posted by Jack Andraka on Thursday, 1 June 2017

“I made the discovery with a laptop, a smartphone, and some online searches,” he said, as per National Geographic.

Andraka’s first step was to isolate a molecule as a “bio marker” of pancreatic cancer, one that occurred during the early stages of the disease. The name of the protein is mesothelin, and he was able to locate it on his 4,000th try.

At the same time, by coincidence, Andraka’s school science class was discussing antibodies – molecules that bind with one specific protein.

It was a combination of these two things that gave him the idea of finding an antibody that would bind with his mesothelin bio marker.

Posted by Jack Andraka on Friday, 22 May 2015

With this in mind, Andraka established a theory that by interweaving antibodies with a network of nanotubes (cylinders that are one-50,000th the diameter of a human hair), one could potentially detect higher levels of mesothelin present in blood samples from early-stage pancreatic cancer patients.

Taking things to the next level

It was time for Andraka to put his theory to the test, though of course this wasn’t something that could simply be done anywhere. He drafted a budget, compiled a list of necessary materials, a time line and a procedure. He sent of all of this information to 200 researchers in the hope that one of them would grant him lab space.

199 refused him. Fortunately, one pathologist and pancreatic cancer researcher at John Hopkins School of Medicine, Anirban Maitra, said yes.

Kal Penn is so cool!

Posted by Jack Andraka on Tuesday, 14 January 2014

After exhausting efforts and numerous trial and error, Jack Andraka invented a small device that could detect cancer early and is, reportedly, 100% accurate. It’s still preliminary, but drug companies are interested, and word is spreading

Andraka believes his device could, via similar concepts, detect any disease.

He told National Geographic: “By changing the antibody, this sensor could detect biomarkers for Alzheimer’s, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other cancers.

“I couldn’t save my friend who died of pancreatic cancer, but I hope I’ve discovered something that means other families won’t have to face similar struggles.”

Way to go, Jack! What an inspiring young man, and what an incredible thing you’ve done.

Please help us pay tribute to Jack Andraka by sharing this article on Facebook and getting his name out there.

Walmart shopper gargles mouthwash, spits it back into bottle and puts it back on shelf

[sociallocker id=”16351″]The internet exploded in fury last week as footage emerged depicting a woman taking a tub of ice cream from a fridge in a store, licking it and then placing it back for an unsuspecting shopper to buy.

Police issued a statement revealing they had identified the culprit in question, with CBS News reporting that if convicted of second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product, she could face between two and 22 years in prison.

One might think that would be enough to put others off doing something so disgusting in the future. Unfortunately, it appears it isn’t.

A new video has hit the web, one which shows a Walmart shopper gargling mouthwash before spitting it back into the bottle and putting it back on the shelf.

In the clip, ‘Bameron Nicole Smith’ can be heard saying: “Girl, it has been one musty f**king morning.”

She then swills the mouthwash, continuing: “Mmm, nice and minty and fresh. Thank you guys.”

Needless to say, it didn’t take long before a storm of backlash followed suit. The original video was uploaded to Twitter on July 5 with the caption “you b**ches with no oral hygiene could take a hint.”

It quickly racked up more than 16.4 million views on Twitter, with over 21,500 likes and 7,000 retweets.

British source the MailOnline contacted Walmart for a statement on the matter. Their response was: “We are investigating this incident.

“If someone tampers with a product and leaves it on the shelf, we will work with law enforcement to identify and prosecute those found responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”

Smith later uploaded another tweet in which she can be seen holding up a receipt from the store – implying that she did purchase the mouthwash she gargled after filming the video.

In any case, it would appear Walmart are set on investigating the matter, so hopefully the truth won’t be long in coming to the fore.

Sometimes I just don’t understand this generation’s perception when it comes to what is and isn’t acceptable.

In the wake of recent events this just seems completely unnecessary and distasteful to me, even if it is a joke.

Man overhears two soldiers’ whisper on plane, gets to flight attendant as fast as he can

[sociallocker id=”16351″]One should not eavesdrop on other people’s conversations. But let’s be honest — it’s sometimes hard to avoid. Especially in tight spaces such as on buses, subways or airplanes.

That’s exactly where this story takes place. It begins when one passenger happened to overhear a conversation between two men.

Following the incident, the passenger, Denny Kukich, knew what he’d heard was remarkable… and decided to make it public.
The story was then shared with Facebook page Love What Matters:
“I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,’ I thought.

Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation.

‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. ‘Petawawa. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Afghanistan.’

After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time…
As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. ‘No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to base.’

His friend agreed.

I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. ‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. ‘My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best – beef or chicken?’
‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class.

‘This is your thanks..’

After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. ‘I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five dollars.

Saw captain walk through the plane
Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand and said, ‘I want to shake your hand.’ Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand.
With a booming voice he said, ‘I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.’ I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.

Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!

Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. ‘It will take you some time to reach the base.. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.’
Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers.

As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little…

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America ‘ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.’ ”
This story really proves just how far a little humanity can go.

Like rings on water, kindness spreads. A kindness that these soldiers will surely never forget.

Feel free to share this beautiful story with your friends on Facebook so that more people understand just how much a kind gesture can do.[/sociallocker]

5-year-old best friends got the same haircut to trick their teacher so she wouldn’t able to tell them apart

Children’s hearts lack prejudice—something that bears repeating in a world where many adults revert to hatred and racist caricatures. 

Adults might think they always know best, but this story shows that we have a lot to learn by watching the youngest generation.

When Lydia Stith Rosebush originally published this amazing story on Love What Matters’s Facebook page 2017, it immediately went viral.

And after reading the story, I can understand why.

Lydia’s five-year son, Jax, is convinced of one thing in life: he and best friend, Reddy, look like identical twins.

There’s really only one thing that separates the two besties according to Jax: his hair stands up, while Reddy’s is cropped.

So Jax decided to cut his hair over the weekend and play a little prank of he and Reddy’s teacher on Monday.

Because how on earth would their teacher be able to tell the difference between them if they had the same hairstyle?
“Jax said he couldn’t wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy’s so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart,” his mother, Lydia, wrote on Facebook.

“If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is,” Lydia wrote. “The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”

The post received more than 85,000 likes and 25,000 shares in less than a week.

Many of the post’s readers have also shared their own stories of how children aren’t prejudiced.

A schoool teacher in Germany wrote about how a conversation she heard between a mother and her son.

The mom asked her son how many refugees there were in his class, and the boy replied, “None, Mom. There are only kids in my class. ”

Even though their wonderful story went viral a couple of years ago, there is no indication that Jax and Reddy have gone seperate ways.

In fact, they still seem to be best friends!

We sure have a lot to learn from our kids, don’t we?

Please share this article and help spread Jax’s beautiful vision. Hopefully, it can help get adults to stop judging others solely by what’s on the outside!

This emotional commercial was only shown once before it was pulled off the air – Watch It Here

[sociallocker id=”16351″]Although it has been 18 years since America was a target of the terrorist attack that took place on September 11 in which around 3.000 people lost their life, we still remember it like it was yesterday.

9/11 stands for sorrow and grief, but it also shows the patriotism of our citizens. On that day, everyone stood together against those who harmed the country and its people.

The whole world was mourning for the lives lost and people from every corner of the Earth empathized with the Americans.

In those tough times, the American brand Budweiser aired a commercial that touched the hearts of many. It’s so emotional, it makes even the toughest people cry.

The commercial features the company’s signature horses, the Clydesdales, who are shown making their way through New York City. As they pass the Statue of Liberty and cross the Brooklyn Bridge, they stop at the park and gaze at the skyline.

Finally, they get to the spot where once the Twin Towers stood and bow their heads in respect.

The message they spread is ‘never forget and don’t ever let that happen again.’

Take a look at the emotional advertisement below. Touching, indeed!

72-Year-Old Woman Gives Birth To Baby Boy And Becomes One Of The Oldest Mothers In The World

[sociallocker id=”16351″]Daljinder Kaur wanted to have a baby with her husband and decided to go through the fertility treatment process in 2014, not anticipating the results that would happen.

Many women who go through these treatments are young and vibrant. They have tried to get pregnant on their own with no success.

What makes Daljinder different is that she was 72 at the time she went through the treatment process.

The woman and her husband had been married for 50 years.

They were lonely because they didn’t have children and wanted to try to have a child before one of them passed away.

Daljinder had to do a lot of talking and had to convince the doctors that it was a good decision for her to go through fertility treatments, but her doctors finally allowed the process to take place.

Daljinder went through several rounds of treatments. After three years, she finally learned that she would be a mother.

She delivered a healthy baby boy. She was also named the oldest mother in the world because she was in her mid-70s at the time of birth.

Daljinder had some issues with raising her son and learned that it was difficult, but she loves her miracle more than anything and is happy that she now has a child of her own.
