Wow, you really pull off the "not-so-hetero" act very
convincingly.. in fact, if I didn't know any better you would have me fooled.. that is if I didn't know any better.. :)

Oh my goodness. If I met a steward like that I'd knock him upside the head. You're beautiful.

Why on earth would you want to incur bodily harm on someone so kind, caring, nicely dressed and 'beautiful'? The world needs more people like this. I say it's time we all hold hands and sing Kumbaya.

Hey actually around 70+ people at least came to the BoB
showing, thought I told you that but maybe not. Anyway yes
we did play your video and everyone was stone-faced. I've
never been more emberassed in my life. We're through. ;-)
Wow I can't believe you went and saw Apocalypto. It's so
violent, even secular critics warn about it, and I know you
don't like too much violence. Well anyway I'm sure it was
amazing, Gibson is an unbelievable director. Yeah kinda got
that impression from "Facing the Giants" too. Haven't seen
it, but Flywheel had the same "Trust Jesus and everything
will work out for you" kind of message as well.

Yeah I know. Isaac and I went to Springfield, and then Marcus called me on the cell and asked us to go see it with him (and he's a distinguished professor at Verity!) ... so ... you know, I had to be a good friend and all! *nathan rolls eyes* In all honesty, though, it didn't make me cringe anymore than 'The Passion' did. But unlike a completely pointless bloody movie, it did have a purpose to it. The film begins with the awesome quote, "A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within." And then at the end you see the Spanish arrive with a guy holding a cross, and after having seen so much pain and turmoil, you're like, "Oh my word. I am so glad." Not that the Spanish were saints, but the Mayans had just become so terrible it was unbelieveable. Anyway, feel free to post a few pictures and some detailed video of your family eating out at PF Changs. :-D

You have a point about the "trust God and everything will
work out" kind of thing. But here's another perspective
(bear with me, I like to debate): Look at Job. He went
through trials, and then received an even BETTER situation
in life than he'd had formerly. I look on the Facing the
Giants movie as a Job story. It may not be "realistic", but
then what IS realistic? Jesus rising from the dead certainly
wasn't realistic. Just a thought. I can definitely see both
sides... That movie was very touching. Happy New Year!

Oh yeah, I totally hear you. Certainly not saying there aren't happy endings to the Christian life. Maybe it's just the fact that this portrayal is so often popularized now adays that it would be good to see the same amount of books, movies, etc, showing the other side of the coin. But the characters in the film certainly went through trials, so that was good. Funny, I was just picturing myself as a faithful, Godly woman who's been unable to have children for years, and how I would perceive the film. When all is said and done, God works differently in the life of every individual, and as the movie did teach, we should praise Him whatever the outcome.

Well, if you want to see the "other side of the coin" watch
Hamlet. I LOVE that movie but it's very sad and has a sad
ending. That part how they couldn't have kids WAS such a
tear-jerker, and I'm not even a mom yet!

Oh yeah? All right, may just have to do that. Sounds very ... depressing and sad. Can't wait.

No really-I enjoy sad movies (because they move me). Hamlet is one of my favorite movies (and favorite Shakespear plays). And I do encourage you to watch it; very
though-provoking.

Hey Jordan, for some reason you remind me on my swing-dance instructor. Uhh...probably not a good thing. (Hilarious clip though!)
