I would recommend anyone seeing the movie The Book Thief. However, I would recommend the book more, which I am sure I did when I wrote about this amazing piece of literature. The movie, while very good, may be difficult to follow if you hadn’t read the book. The characters did a great job, though, and I feel the story still came to life. The little boy in the movie completely reminded my husband and me of our little toe-head…not just in his appearance, but in his behaviors. It was sweet to be reminded of him, except for his fate, of course. Bottom line, go see the movie it is good, but read the book, it is better!
I have been waiting for over a year to see my movie Divergent! Divergent and its sequel are a couple of my favorite fiction books and the movie did not disappoint! I would recommend the book and the movie to anyone! SO GOOD! I would easily pay to see it again. 😉 Yes I am the same person who criticized the Son of God movie, and no, this movie does not give a message of salvation, BUT it does not claim to either. 😉 Good movie, good book, highly recommended!
This is a prayer priority of mine, so when this devotional came in my inbox I had to share.
This from Bible Gateway NIV Devotions for Moms
Someone once remarked, “The closer we get to someone, the more our impression will depend upon who they are rather than what they do.” Counterfeits don’t fool many, especially family members. If we want our families to adopt the spiritual principles we believe in, we’ll have to model them with sincerity. Living this kind of life out before our husbands and children and the world means showing them the “real thing” and not just some semblance.
When Joel writes about rending our hearts and not our garments, this is what he means. Anyone can look like they belong to God on the outside, tearing their outer garments in grief about their sinful state the way an Old Testament priest might. But those with genuine faith rend their hearts. They open their hearts to God and to others for inspection.
We can’t fake it with our kids. We won’t be able to fool our husbands. The longer they live with us, the more their impression will be of who we truly are, not just what we do.
2 Timothy 1:9
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time
I love chips, but I try to be healthy so am always looking for “healthier” chip options. A lot of time the calories are still the same but the ingredients make a difference. I am a big fan of vegetable chips dipped in salsa, but recently on an impromptu stop at Marshalls I found 2 more yummy options to add to my list.
Glories Mesquite Sweet Potato Chips are fabulous!!!!
The Daily Crave bbq veggie chips are delicious too 🙂
I recommend them both!
