Movie Night...

For years every Friday/Saturday night would be our family movie nights with the oldest boys. We don't watch TV and this was something we all looked forward to begin our weekend. Then with the boys being teens and gone alot it was just Sean and I until Nolan and then I NEEDED sleep more than a movie fix. LOL! Since Zack and Ryan both have jobs they can afford to go to the theater to see the movies when they first come out. In fact, I believe they've gone to the movies more times this past year than they have their whole lives! LOL! I prefer watching a movie on my own couch, cuddled next to Sean, eating lots of our own popcorn. Sean and I did go to the movies for the first time in years to see the new Indiana Jones movie. It started out good but the ending was a letdown. I think we'll just stay home. LOL!

I love musicals but of course, the guys don't. However, I must give Sean credit here. My mom bought me Hello Dolly several months ago. It sat unopened on the top of the tv until one night Sean said "hey, let's watch this". I said "Sean, it's a musical, you know singing!" He said "we'll try it". So we did. About halfway thru Sean fell asleep and he woke up at the very end when the theme song was fading out. He said "hey, that wasn't too bad". I said "how would you know? You slept thru most of it". He said "Well, what I saw was pretty good". MEN! LOL!

We are pretty particular with what movies we allow in our home and our heads so this means we don't allow any R rated movies (much to the boys chagrin!) We did allow The Passion of the Christ, Blood Diamond, and Hotel Rwanda (all R-rated) because of the importance of them. In addition, we have a TV Guardian that blocks out language and the use of God's name in vain. We love it and it was one of the best investments we ever made.

So, onto the reason for this post. Last night we watched a movie that I didn't think I would enjoy. I hate sci-fi and fantasy movies. This one was about the controversial topic of UFOs. It was really good! It is from Christian producer Rich Christiano. It is called Unidentified and you can check out the website at UnidentifiedTheMovie.com or visit ChristianMovies.com to purchase it. Sean didn't like the ending but I thought it was very thought provoking. They balance it by exploring the various theories and what the bible says.

Just my 2 cents. :)

I always wondered if those TV Guardians really worked. Glad to hear it does, I will likely look into one for our house.
Thanks for the movie recommendation.

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
