Mike and I were talking this morning before he left for work about living the Spirit-filled life and he ended the conversation with a sentence that I cracked up over and had to write down. He said, (after salvation) "we gotta be healed and know the Truth and until that happens we're just a dirty spoon." Of course, he was referring to the verses in 2 Timothy 2:20-21 and I recognized where this was coming from but it was so stinkin' funny for him to say it that way. Lord, make us holy and useful to You, prepared to do any good work!!!

To date, I have seen this movie 3 times!!! I guess I love it so much because it is chock full of Truth which is such a rarity these days not to mention the drastic lack of violence ('cept for the baseball bat). I saw it the first weekend it came out with Mike. But, last week we went to dinner and saw the movie with our neighbors. Mike got the idea while listening to the Sunday sermon to branch out from our normal study and meet for dinner and see the movie. Six of the neighbors made it that evening and we had a wonderful time. At one point during the movie, I looked across the row and had to ponder how interesting, amazing and like God it was to orchestrate this date. I mean, I love my neighbors and all but to actually go to a Christian movie together was certainly not something I could've "thunk up." Praise You, Lord, for Your creativity and love. My third viewing was with Molly and Monica two days ago. They liked it as well and I know God will use it in their young lives to model "true agape love." Way to go God and the faithful brothers (Alex and Stephen Kendrick) who wrote this script. "Fireproof doesn't mean something prevents fire. Fireproof means you are able to withstand a fire."
