Not quite Siskel and Ebert, but...



Well, we made it to the movie yesterday!! My Sweet Hubby wanted to get out for a little bit yesterday, so we used the opportunity to see the movie Fireproof.

Now, as I confessed in my last post, I'm no movie fan and I'm certainly not Siskel and Ebert! But I know what I like and I LOVED this movie!

If you've seen it, I'd be willing to bet you're like me and want to see it again! If you haven't seen it - what are you waiting for?? Go NOW!!

It's got something for everyone's tastes...humor, drama, romance and it's all wrapped up in the love of God! Some great music too!

It's rated PG, and totally appropriate for your "tweens" and up...One of my friends told me it opened a dialogue between she and her young daughter as to God's plan for marriage! How awesome is that?

It was just a special day...we were able to witness a tender moment as a son helped his elderly, wheelchair bound mother into their car - such great compassion... When we commented to him on his love and care for her he said, "It's nothing but the Lord!" Oh amen! Isn't it so?!

I'll close today as the movie closed yesterday...
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Very nice Gigi. Vicki and myself have been considering going to see this movie. Did you know that it is surprizing the secular critics as to how good it is?

I cannot WAIT to see this movie. I have had way too much going on personally speaking to get out, but I plan to this week! So glad to hear your review and to know it is suitable for my tween.

What a blessing! And I'm a huge Kirk Cameron fan, so that is just icing on the cake.

Laura Lee ~ let me know what you think! And yes, Kirk Cameron is to be admired...he sets such a good example of moral character!

Marlene ~ you know we were tickled that you and Miss McKenna were able to go to the movie! Those tickets would have been wasted if you hadn't gone...Love ya!
