What does WAY to much Coke and theater popcorn do? Well, here I sit at four a.m. really wanting to sleep but my mind is racing around in circles. I mean it has been a crazy month, with more to go, but seriously?
My husband and I rarely go to the movies. We have Netflix, and that suits me just fine. I really don’t mind watching shows or movies at a later date. But every now and then, it’s nice to go to a real theater and sit in the dark with the sound booming from all corners. And eat popcorn, drinking Coke. It just has a special, kind of old-fashioned feel to it. When someone gives you the tickets to do it…even more special. Because we all know how much that popcorn costs and it isn’t cheap anymore!
Tonight we saw ‘War Room’. When I first viewed the trailer for it, I wasn’t really all that impressed. I have enjoyed the other movies put out by the same people, but this one just didn’t look that thrilling. Well, I was mistaken. No, it doesn’t have action-packed scenes or eye-catching scenery. But it does have a message, and it’s a good one.
I don’t want to spoil the movie for those that haven’t seen it yet. But some food for thought. What if each one of us started taking care of our own thoughts and actions?What if our daily goal was to pray for those around us, encourage them, seek their best and not our own? What if the relationships we have with the people in our lives were more important than our careers, our homes and cars? What if God’s word was the manual for our lives, the local church the shelter in the time of storm and those attending the family that encourages us, loves us and keeps us accountable? What if?
