Donald Braswell II sends the following message on this Christmas day, 2012
“Well everyone, here we are again. 4 years and a few months since the end of AGT 2008. Somehow it has lasted and it appears there is more to come.
Our lives are full of INTERRUPTIONS. Some of these interruptions we are not wanting to come; an unexpected illness, a mechanical failure of some device we depend on which will cause a financial commitment to renew or replace, news of someone that passes that we love, a loss of a job needed greatly, or an automobile hitting us by accident as we meander on a bicycle down the road just wanting to enjoy the beauty around us.
Interruptions are a part of our life. It is easy to worry what interruptions will come that will make our lives hard to manage but the beauty of life is that it has so much more imagination than we will ever. So many more possibilities for us than we could conceive.
God has a way of constantly reinventing us to be stronger through changes, interruptions. These interruptions are to teach us something so we must see through our pain to understand his glory and hope for us. Interruptions are his way.
Just this year He interrupted my life when I was graced by him to play a beautiful Biblical character in a theatrical production called “The Centurion, the Musical”. He blessed me with another interruption when he sent one of the greatest composers we’ll ever know, Mark Niedzwiedz, to make a new album [to be released soon].
He interrupted my life more than four years ago when I went on a strange television show called America’s Got Talent. He interrupted my life with a family that call themselves fans but I call a family, who have never left me and never stopped believing in me.
He interrupted my life when I was a fourteen year old boy with a fourteen year old girl who became a woman, a wife, and a mother who has stood by me through all of time and is the very reason I still have a dream at all.
INTERRUPTIONS! Where would we be without them. I know you have had them too. Most importantly God interrupted all of time by blessing us with his beautiful son, born in a manger full of hay from the field and born among God’s gentle creatures.
How lucky we are that God interrupted our life that day and here we are on that very day again to celebrate a world reborn once more. To interrupt our life for a moment as if God had to say,
“I don’t mean to interrupt you and I know another year has passed, but please, Once again stop your life, and look again upon this gift that I have given to you all, and remember why. It is the gift of love that I bring and it is for ALL. Don’t forget this gift. It is one of a kind of which will last forever if you would just accept it”
I love all and thank you for being there in this path.
God Bless you all and Merry Christmas.
Donald Braswell II”
