Unexpected beauty

Sometimes something so beautiful and unexpected comes along that even the most jaded and worldly of people have to drop their jaws in astonishment. A case in point: here’s a mobile phone salesman from Wales who has an amazing talent. When he opens his mouth, what comes out is the last thing his audience expects.

It just goes to show how surprising God can be in distributing His gifts. It’s a reminder that we mustn’t judge books by covers, nor should we hastily dismiss someone without remembering that each man, woman and child is a unique creation of God, as precious to Him as the very ones whom we love the most.

Perhaps Shakespeare said it best. "What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties!”
