A day at the Movies, a win, and a prayer



After I had seen a couple of friends post about this movie plus my mom telling me how good it was, I asked my DH to take me to see this. I also wanted to see the Time Travelers Wife as well, so we decided to make a day of it. I really liked the Time travelers Wife but I must say I have been in a romantic gushy mood since I have been home with my honey! Upon reading about this movie on FocusontheFamily.com I knew it wasn't a movie that I wanted to take our teenage daughter along with her boyfriend to see, so, we invited them to go with us to see Julia & Julie. My daughter was bummed but it is one I will see with her on a girls day :) It truly is PG13

On Julia & Julie, I must say, I agree .....any and all bloggers must see this movie! We can so relate! Being somewhat of a new blogger myself I saw the transformation in Julie that I have experienced. Such as....the excitement of our first comment, our obsession, our realization that we can, and do at times, put this blogging above our families and balancing that out in time, and even the point in which she is told by her oh so sweet hubby "DO NOT BLOG ABOUT THIS!" hee hee! Yep I have experienced each and every one of these! This movie is wonderful....I laughed, I cried, I learned alot about Julia and didn't know this was a true story even about Julie! I love the wonderful portrayal of marriage in this movie because their husbands were supportive and they communicated, loved, worked hard TOGETHER no matter what life threw at them and they believed in each other! It just made me love and appreciate the relationship I have with my husband because he is sooo like the men in this movie! I think too after seeing this movie he understands why I love blogging so much and here is just why I say this:

When I opened my computer this morning I went to Incourage to read their post for the day and they happened to be announcing the winners of their Limited Edition Incourage tshirt. Out of 250 "what incourages you" posts I was one of the lucky random chosen WINNERS!!! I called my husband and told him and he was earnestly excited with and for me! He is so precious!
This is Holley with DaySpring sporting modeling this tshirt! She is a sweet lady as are all the women involved in this website!



On a side note I have to ask for prayer for my Dad today. This has been a hard weekend and today he actually cancelled all clients and for the first time is NOT going to work because he is just tooo exhausted. He is sleeping most of the time and I found out yesterday that most food has become to painful to eat. He was able to eat a shake yesterday but that is it. Smoothies have become to painful due to the acid from the fruit. I know the Great Physician is at work and I just ask that you all would come in agreement with me for the Lord to strengthen Dad, mininstering to HIM and as HE draws him near that my Dad would long to know and accept JESUS! I love each of you and thankyou as you come before the Lord on my Dads behalf, it humbles me so!

Love and blessings to you all!

Loren,

Steve and I have yet to make it to the movies just yet, but will take your recommendations to heart.

Praying for your amazing dad, Doug, that God is working in His life and this is a personal time between the two of them. I am faithful in believing all things are possible with God.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I saw the preview and I thought how good Meryl Streep was, even with her voice sounding a bit like that of Julia Child's...I hope I will have time to watch it...

Yay!!!I'm glad you won! Congratulations!

On the other hand, it must be hard for you to hear about your dad feeling that way. When I wasn't with my dad, and he was going through all the worst symptoms, I wished I could divide myself into 2, one to stay with my family and one to be with my dad. You must be feeling that way. I said a prayer for you and your dad a while ago...Today, the Lord reminded me that "He is always near"...He directed me to Isa.55:10,11."The rain & snow come down from the heavens & stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with My Word, I send it out & it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, & it will prosper everywhere I send it."

Blessings to you sister and sending you some [[hugs]]. Love in Christ.

I have been wanting to see that movie... I might take a day off and go see it with Heydon! Yea... a cool t-shirt! That is the first thing I saw this morning, so I had to leave you the little note on yesterday's post. ;) I pray your dad can find *something* he can eat!

Love & Blessings,
Jennifer

Congratulations on winning the t-shirt Loren! And, thanks for the review on the movies. I was considering seeing both of these. And I do not go to movies that often. And I will continue to pray for your dad.

Praying for you dad, sweetie. Carrie and I are fasting tomorrow and he's on our list to pray for. Congrats on your win. Never heard of this movie, but I'm a Streep fan so I'm grateful anytime you tell me about a good movie.

My love and prayers to you and your family,

I'm deeply touched that the Lord had you pray for me! There is nothing better than to know that there are so many sisters praying for me. And I thank Him soo much for giving me such wonderful, loving sisters here. Can I give you a [[hug]]? Love you. Have a good night.

Proverbs 27:19

Yaaaay! Congrats on the tee-shirt! You have got to model it for us when you get it!

My husband took me to see "Julie & Julia" as well! And you are so right about being able to relate. It was so real. This movie meant alot to me because of the blogging and the cooking. I LOVE to cook.

My husband stated that the movie was better than he'd expected! How cool is that?

smooches,
Larie

Good warning about blogging!! It can take time away from other more imporant activities.

Sorry about your dad. Our prayers for you all.
