Today is David Archuleta's 20th birthday. I can't believe how fast time has gone by. Wasn't it just last year when the world heard a powerhouse 12 yr old belting out tunes on Star Search? Wasn't it just yesterday when we were all mesmerized by 16 yr old David auditioning for American Idol? Wow, time is really rolling by too fast.
In honor of David's birthday, I have written a new acrostic that I would like to share:
Happy Birthday David
Heart of gold exhibited through actions;
Advocate for the downtrodden.
Painter composing vivid scenes;
Passionate words lovingly abound,
Yearning to teach the world to care.
Brilliant star, shining for all to see;
Imperfect, yet the epitome of perfection.
Rare gem in a sea of ordinary,
Tantalizing melodies emanate from his soul.
Harbinger of many good things to come;
Destiny bids him to transcend the average.
Awe-inspiring values cause him to rise above the rest.
Youthful zeal melds with sage counsel.
Devotion unparalleled, sets forth a shining example;
Astute observations delivered to the world through wise eyes.
Virtues, set to lofty heights, reach to teach us;
Imagine the world if more conformed to these ideals.
David, you inspire us!
