My favorite things, Today


If you can’t tell, this is a sunshine. I love this time of year and I get so excited for Spring. Yesterday it was 60 degrees and I was driving with my windows down.

I know there are mixed opinions about this movie. There were things about it that I really didn’t like. But setting those things aside I thought it was very powerful. For me the mark of a good movie is if it makes me feel something (not including anger) and if it makes me think. I thought about this movie for days. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really love the first God’s Army and I had no intention of seeing the second one until I read my brother’s review. I hope he doesn’t mind if I share because he is a much better write than I am. After I saw the movie the review summed up my feelings very well.
“The humanity of the characters is what drives the main themes of repentance and Grace (the title is perfect because each character experiences Grace in a different way). There are twists in the plot but they are twists of agency consistent with the weaknesses and strengths of the characters. I could go on and on, but to do so would probably require me to give away too much. It’s enough to say it’s a really compelling story about people, some of whom happen to be LDS missionaries, but all of whom experience the Atonement in some way. ” – Bryan Hall

And lastly, a new treat I discovered. I usually just put Nutella on crepes or toast, but the other day I had the brilliant idea to make a wafer-nutella sandwich. It was delicious. My new favorite treat.

  1. I have never heard of that movie, I love the sunlight, I am all about it, bring it on. Also I love wafers and nutella, I just have to stay away from it because it likes to go straight to the behind!

  2. Jo! I’m so glad you have connected us out here in cyber space. You have a sweet little family and I am loving catching up with what you have been up to. I can’t believe how much your whole family has grown and changed. I was just going through a bunch of old stuff while getting ready to move and reading notes/journals/etc. from the good old days. How lucky I was to have you around. You’re the best!
