Perhaps no composer has captured the musical heart and soul of America as did Irving Berlin. In addition to familiar favorites such as "God Bless America" and "Easter Parade," he wrote, "I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas," which still ranks as the all-time best-selling musical score.

In an interview for the San Diego Union, Don Freeman asked Berlin, "Is there any question you’ve never been asked that you would like someone to ask you?" "Well, yes, there is one," he replied. "’What do you think of the many songs you’ve written that didn’t become hits?’ My reply would be that I still think they are wonderful."

God, too, has an unshakable delight in what--and whom--he has made. He thinks each of his children is wonderful. Whether they’re a "hit" in the eyes of others or not, he will always think they’re wonderful.

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created” (Rev. 4:11).
