Post Fireproof

D and I went out for our date night to go see Fireproof. We both really liked the movie. We enjoyed seeing a movie that we knew didn't have anything bad in it. We enjoyed seeing a movie with humor (it's quite funny at times), action (it has firefighting scenes), and a positive message.

When the movie finished, the entire theatre enthusiastically applauded!

Go see it. Do it. Then come back here and tell me what you thought.

Hey everybody! There's a new movie coming out this Friday that I'm really pumped about. No, it's not a major crime drama, or a summer blockbuster. It's a movie about marriage, and God. I think if every married person in America could see this movie, maybe we'd be better off.

I'm going to go out on a limb here because it's my blog, and I can say what I want. If you and your spouse don't have Jesus Christ at the center of your marriage, I urge you to go see this movie. I don't even know if anybody is going to read this post. But, I do know, if you happened on my blog by accident and are reading this post, it's not an accident. I've been married 16 years, and through those 16 years, we've been through a lot. We would not be married today if it weren't for the saving grace of Jesus Christ. He has saved us time and time again. Marriage is hard! It takes work! So, even if you think your marriage is fine, I think this movie would be great for you to go to. I already sent an e-mail inviting my husband to go see this movie with me on Saturday night. He was so excited when he got the e-mail. I was actually upstairs in the bedroom. He came running up, and said, can I RSVP now? We're going on Saturday night, and yes, it took us planning it over a week in advance to make it work.

There's also a devotional book that is featured in the movie that you can buy at your local Christan bookstore. It's a 40 day devotional that can be used by you as a couple after you see the movie. After we see the movie, I'm going to give the book to D as a surprise. Some of you reading might be thinking I'm a dork. You're right. I've been a dork all my life. Oh, and by the way, my husband is a dork too. And I love him.

So, if anyone reads this post, I dare you to go see the movie with your spouse. If you have any friends you think would benefit from this movie, send them over here to read the post and watch the trailer. I would love to hear back from someone! Then I would know there's someone out there reading my posts!

I just started the new Beth Moore Study - the Psalms of Ascent tonight. I am so pumped. That lady really can relate to people. I haven't been in one of her studies for over a year. I'm so excited! I hope I don't fall behind in my homework, though!

Well, a lot of you know that my very wonderful friend Wendy recently moved away! Sniff...Sniff! But, my God is so good to me. One of my other wonderful friends just arrived this week. It's really a small world in the Air Force. This is our third base together. I love their family like they were my family.

OK, so you don't feel's some "Weekly Wisdom with Collin"...

Collin: Mommy, John McCain must be really busy.

Me: Well, I'm sure he is. Why do you say that?

Collin: He's been approving a lot of messages

Oh my goodness, I love that little rascal!

I need to update with some pictures soon! I need to get on that.
