Movie Overdose – LOL


The Best Man Holiday movie

I have already seen this many WAY too many times that I would like to actually admit ….. ESPECIALLY since it only came out last week on Thursday….but to me it was indeed just that good…… Okay here is my theory with this movie..

Movie was INSANELY good – they need to have at least 2 more at the least then CLOSE THE STORY. Ride the wave while it is high…make Part 3 RIGHT NOW while the momentum is high and we are all watering at the mouth! (summer 2014)  Then make the 4th one with everyone READY for the story to end but do it with a big bang! ( 2016 )

This Was Soo Good –


Okay – it is no secret that I am NOT a huge “urban film” movie goer …unless it is a love story –  However, earlier today – I took a few hours to run and see this movie and I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo glad that I did! All smiles from me!

The Best Man Holiday knocked my socks off – and made me have a need for A MILLION BOXES OF TISSUE –  The  movie was very well written and done and left me with the feelings of laughter – sadness – happiness – wanting to be married – respecting friends and family even the more – EVERYONE needs to see this movie because the message behind it is just utterly amazing!

I also saw THOR last weekend with my son and this movie was so good! Okay, the movie was great but THOR – GAWWWWD – whew – as I calm down and take my own blood pressure! LOL ….Seriously, it is very nice to be able to take my son to movies that I even grew up enjoying…..he loved it a great deal and I was glad. I am a little strict and I do NOT believe in allowing kids his age to watch abrasive movies, cussing, demonic and basically ANYTHING that is RATED R and to be honest even some PG movies are a bit too much for him. They are surely going to make a THOR 3

My Own Cross To Bear –


Okay, I understand that EVERYONE has their own morals, values, beliefs, stances and views. However, people that know me, respects the fact that I do not celebrate Halloween because of my OWN personal Christian views.

However, I am almost certain that because they state they are Christian as well – they try to make me UNDERSTAND why they celebrate it with their kids, friends and family. I do not judge them if they CHOOSE to celebrate the holiday but when they ask me about it – I tell them the foundation of the holiday is supported and uplifted but all of the following:

sorcerers – witches – warlocks and wizards ( and everything that is negative )

I call it the Devil’s birthday along with his own version of Christmas because besides Christmas and Thanksgiving – there is NO OTHER HOLIDAY that is celebrated like Halloween. I mean Valentine’s Day has even lost its zeal and does not have the same fire that American couples used to give it. Thanksgiving seems to be viewed more like a family / religious holiday ( which has been MY favorite holiday since a child )……

Some people just love scary movies, haunted things, calling out the dead, running around old cemeteries, practicing witch hunts and playing with ouije  (weegee) boards etc. Well, honey if people do not believe in the -real -NESS of HEAVEN and hell – I am so sorry – but I do and there is NOTHING fun about Halloween and dressing up like scary characters while worrying about how high the crime rate will go up for the night, while being scared to walk home on a night called Fright Night!

While going to a house that is supposed to be haunted and something always seems to happen negative but people become upset if something tragic happens to you – even though it was YOUR decision to put yourself in harm’s way all because of you not believing –

Halloween and MY FAITH just don’t go together!

I just do not get it…….I personally ENJOY having a peaceful night’s sleep and not having gory, creepy nightmares…..

Glad that I woke up to see yet another day! God is soo good, I was up and have been in a fantastic mood and did not know why I was EXTREMELY gitty this morning!
 
I was on a roll with my happy self then my alarm went off on my phone!!
 
It was a reminder that TODAY February 18, 2013 marked the 5 year anniv. of my wonderful father’s passing.
 
For the first 20 seconds I MUST ADMIT that it stopped my happy moment momentum………… However, I did pull it together!!!
 
I am well and although it is his 5 year anniv. I AM STILL HAPPY as I was this morning……
 
Just like the enenmy to try and quench your happiness out of the blue – but it did NOT work!!!……. Im free from the bondage of being depressed of my father’s passing…and it feels soooooo soooo great!!!
 
 
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20

Holiday “cheer” vs. Christmas “spirit”


c

It is weird that EVERY Christmas Holiday Season… the world has to be REMINDED of the reason for the season….. however if we maintain that “personal” relationship with Jesus than it would be like water rolling off of a window pane…..

Helping the less fortunate….feeding the homeless….donating clothing to shelters…giving toys to children who are in the middle of a transition at a domestic violence center……giving a single parent a ride to church, donating book bags to low income neighborhoods, dropping groceries off for at least ONE senior citizen who you know that may live alone and just OVERALL giving back to your community are things that SHOULD BE considered as Christmas Spirit….those are the things that the Spirit of Jesus Christ requires us to do.

Furthermore, doing things with NO STRINGS attached and not shouting to the roof tops..” Look what I did for people” is a gfit that will keep on giving regardless if it is Tis The Season or not!

God should INDEED be uplifted all year round and not just be given the grand celebration from December 1 – December 25th!…….

Holiday cheer lasts only for the CURRENT moment and usually ENDS at the work or school Christimas Parties!!!  However, The Christmas SPIRIT lasts a lifetime……..Reflecting on what is important will outlast any scheduled holiday season.

Kitchen Table


I know that I keep EMPHASIZING on how awesome that I think my 10 1/2 year old kid is ….but he is! ( well at least 85% of the time ) Look at the little love note that he wrote my mother above…. I was VERY TOUCHED and he laughed at me when tears came to my eyes! I told him when he gets older and he has kids ( according to him, he wants 4 kids / 3 boys and 1 girl LOL ) and his kids show massive compassion to me – he will indeed appreciate all of the amazing gestures as well…

I feel that ” The Kitchen Table” is the place where a great deal of  information can be exchanged and it is funny how when people break bread they become very relaxed! My son talked about November being “a good month” and of course I asked him why and his answer was the same as mine! November represents giving thanks and his aunt, grandma and great grandma‘s birthday is all in one month so that could only mean good things!

Then he stated that he liked Christmas and Valentines Day… Christmas was of course a no brainer – but he did say that he was glad that Jesus shared his birthday with the world! ( my eyes filled with water ) LOL

So of course, immediately – im like yeah..yeah..Jesus loves us all okay now what do you know about Valentines Day! LOL ……. he quickly stated with a BIG MASSIVE grin – Mom its about love! What???????????????????? I fell off of my chair (in my mind at least) I do not get panic attacks but I felt as if one was coming on! He said Valentines Day is for love mom and I love you and my family. I didnt buy it ( although I should have – SHAME ON ME ) I asked him if he liked a girl and he got disgusted immediately and said yuck mom.

 

So that made me happy and I advised him that he could play his video games for A WHILE now….. After that 10 minute LONG conversation – I needed some air!
