Most people know Jeanne Robertson as a motivational speaker and very funny storyteller. She speaks nationwide. Now she is also known across the Internet; she has had millions of hits on YouTube and iTunes.
Jeanne is a Godwink to me. (See below to learn what a Godwink is) It is no secret I adore this woman and her gift of humor. I was introduced to her videos a couple of months ago when one of the online video was passed along. I ordered the complete DVD set and I have been laughing until I cried ever since.
I don’t want to whine about my aches and pains, but I must say all this laughing is the best medicine yet. Who can feel sorry for themselves or see the glass half empty with you are watching a Jeanne Robertson DVD? I have always been that way, this reminded me to see more humor in the tiniest and largest things.
I reaffirmed that I have much more to accomplish in life. Jeanne is a year younger than I am. If she can plan a new 20 city-tour and work that into her already busy 2011, then I can make plans too. Not sure what they will be yet, but I know they will be fun. I have always told stories and written in first person. I realized that Jeanne usually tell stories about herself and in first person. This was encouraging; I will keep on telling about myself. I have a new excitement for blogging.
I have no idea why I got the lovely Godwink at this time. I do know the timing was perfect. Jeanne has been speaking for over 40 years, why only now did I “meet” her. I feel there is a purpose because God always has a purpose. Meanwhile, Jeanne and I will keep on laughing.
Have you experienced a Godwink lately? Please share it in the comments.
More on Godwinks: Several years ago, we saw SQuire Rushnell interviewed on “The Hour of Power”. He was talking about his book “When Gods Winks”. I read the book and visited the website to read more fantastic Godwink stories. I haven’t been to the site lately; I see there are additional books.
From the website: WHAT'S A GODWINK? A godwink is what some people would call a coincidence, an answered prayer, or simply an experience where you'd say, “Wow, what are the odds of that!"
