Home Again and Facing the Giants
We are back home from Bible quiz--it is always such a tiring day! We did well and I am so pleased that my children were all in the top 5 in the state! They worked hard for it and I'm so proud! (Forgive my boast) Now we start studying for Regionals! B and K went straight from quizzing to the very last basketball game of the season at the private school my children will be attending next year. I was so worn out, all I could think of was getting in the tub, having some hot chocolate, and reading for awhile. How I ended up here, I will never know! The twins are watching Facing the Giants for the second time today. (We were in the car for 5 hours.) I so love that movie. I have now seen the end of it three times and I cry ( I mean "tears running down my face") every time. I just can't make it through the coach asking each player individually: "Now tell me, what's impossible with God?" and the response of "Nothing, Coach". As a matter of fact, I am Queen of the Cry-Face for the rest of the movie! My husband laughs at me through his own hidden tears. (Don't think I didn't see them--I know these things!) It is such an inspirational movie. We traveled an hour to see it when it came out and I have recommended it so many times. I plan to buy several copies to give as gifts. I realize that some of it seems unrealistic--but I keep reminding myself that, hey, nothing is impossible with God. Isn't that the point of the whole movie? We don't serve a "realistic" God, but instead, The God-- who knows all, sees all, loves all, and can do All! Have a great Sunday!
