Holy Week is the week preceding Easter and the final week of Lent. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. Holy Week includes Holy Thursday (also known as Maundy Thursday) and Good Friday, which, together with Holy Saturday, are known as the Triduum.
During Holy Week, Proud Christians “LIKE MYSELF”……..commemorate the Passion of Christ, Who died on Good Friday in reparation for the sins of mankind, and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. Thus, while Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God’s goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.
I wanted to start going to see movies that I normally WOULD NOT be interested in going to….. BUT yesterday I went to see G.I. Joe and today I went to see Temptation. I love The Rock ( Duane Johnson ) and even as a child, I loved G.I. Joe but I am not a fan sometimes of how they are over sensationalized my childhood cartoons and making them into movies…. I did not like the last G.I. film but this one made MORE SENSE and felt more real ( besides the PRESIDENT being able to change into someone else – it reminded me of the girl who played in The Wolverine movie. ( charlize Theron – played that blue character! LOL )
Okay next…..Wow…..is all that I can say… first let me deal with the Tyler Perry flick called Temptation….
PLEASE let the record show, I feel that I am not a HUGE Tyler Perry fan and I feel it is because MADEA was played and forced down my throat by way of film and media it made me SICK OF HIM…. Of course, he could care less what I felt but at this point for me to support him….he must CONTINUE to do films like Good Deeds ( amazing ) A Family That Preys ( he should have made a movie like this after the 2nd Madea film ) Why Did I Get Married 1 and 2 ( real life and didn’t feel staged ) and then this movie Temptation …..
I do not watch all black casts movies because MOST ……or at least the ones that I have given a chance BEFORE Tyler Perry started producing movies ALL ended up with the black man getting shot, being disrespectful to women, a thug, a thief, a drug dealer or had AT LEAST 12 baby mammas! The women always slept with AT LEAST 12 different men, held drugs for boyfriends, were the mistress, lacked education, spoke so slang it hurt my ears..etc..etc..etc..
So to be HONEST…….. with Tyler Perry having the God – given ability to make movies with all black casts with the film being POSITIVE, FAITH FILLED AND A MESSAGE all included??!!!$%$%$%$ WOW… KUDDOS to him for real or any producer who can do that, regardless if they are black or white.
So umm.. yeah that is why I do not support all black films… I am a black women with 4 degrees, a single parent with a kid who has been on high honor roll ever since his feet touched the school grounds, he plays two instruments, plays tennis, basketball, baseball and soccer, loves to read and speaks with intelligence!
I do not see an example of MYSELF or MY SON in any of these films so why should I support them in ANY WAY? Dont worry because I am not…. but for this movie called Temptation – it was worth the 2 hours.
Mental Gifts are things that you like and feel that you deserve when you are either :
Not having a good day and you just want something little to make you feel a tad bit better
Made good choices and you are patting yourself on the back because you are proud of yourself
These are MY 2 Mental Gifts for the Month of March
You do not have to be a WOMAN to understand “Mental Gifts”……think about it!!
Thinking of EVERYTHING big and small that I have gone through in regards to my 19 1/ 2 year old twins…. I NOW look at it all in a different light…….. ( well I am least trying to )
An arrow can only be shot by pulling it back…. So when my life seems to be dragging me BACK in regards to the up and down moments with my kids and the emotional – mental and spiritual DIFFICULTIES “that I feel” that they have brought me and my 10 1/2 year old son -….. Love them but they CONTINUE to be and act so “interesting”….
Soooooo interesting (well ugly is really what I mean ) that I question if “they are really mine”….. ( im so serious )
Hmmmmmm… NOW I know that it means that MY ARROW is going to launch me into something great….
So until then, I will focus and keep on aiming on the prize which is to maintain a relationship through the craziness that they BOTH indeed continuously bring! Only GOD can show Mother’s how to love disrespectful kids!
Tuesday, Judas agrees to betray, Thursday the Last Supper, Example of Service established for all mortal time, the agreement kept Judas Jesus Betrayal and Arrest, Friday The Trail and Crucifixion, the burial, Sunday the Resurrection.
All I am trying to say is that all agreements have been kept. ” Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up”… Agreement Kept. And because of his act of Love we remember today, his Agreement he made with you will be kept….
Always remember while the enemy has a PLOT to destroy you….. God will always have a PLAN to keep you!
