That's Entertainment

Can I blame it on ADD when it comes to award shows? Just can't help myself, but I get really bored with the bleeping/editing, finding it sad that it is necessary. It is hard for me to sit still not being able to relax and enjoy what could be a relaxing celebration. Yet I find myself wanting to see certain performances. Caught part of Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli (enjoy them both). Curious about Travis Barker's performance with Eminem, Lil' Wayne & Drake...but gave up .

Then there's the ridiculous previews of movies, supposedly approved for ALL audiences. No really? Since when are those way too realistic special effects suitable for my four year old. Like the werewolf movie coming out and then there is another one but I don't recall the name of it because I keep having to change the channel since it creeps, even me, out.

Yet, I find it odd that the b-word has found its way into prime time programming, and now the a-word is joining the allowed profanity. Just a matter of time before the other words are found in the realm of family entertainment.

So what are we leaving for future generations in this "anything goes" world?



1 Corinthians 2:4 & 5 "My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power." NIV

It's funny what a stint in the ICU will do to a perspective. Making it out of that place can be life changing. I guess it is life changing making it out in whatever state ensues. For me, it was truly an epiphany. For so long I was pretty secure in knowing that I could bring about an outcome on my own. In retrospect, I know my rational was ludicrous, but now it is so apparent that my power is nothing compared to God's power. There is no way I can manipulate any outcome in my own life, without the power of the Spirit being prevalent in my life. Now my quest is to allow the Holy Spirit to work more in me. What a challenge when curve balls keep coming my way. But then again, it is pretty easy to surrender knowing there is only one thing I can control - how I love is the one thing I need to exercise. My writer's brain, music, card making, getting healthier, etc. are all things that can be a product of the love exercise.
