A little late...

On Friday, September 26th, the movie Fireproof premiered at several local theaters. Our church had bought out one of the premiere showings so that we could all attend together. My Sweet Hubby and I had our tickets weeks in advance and were eagerly looking forward to this film.

Now - a little history...I do not like movies. Hard to believe, I know, but it's the truth! Something about sitting still that long, usually in a too-cold theater. Not for me. And my enjoyment factor does not go up with a DVD for home viewing. Movies just aren't my "thing." But, this movie was different and I was actually counting down the days!

Finally, the BIG day arrived! September 26th...my Sweet Hubby had an oncology appointment in the morning. And by noon, he was hospitalized. We offered our tickets to friends, who thankfully were able to go and enjoy the movie in our place.

But we were so sad to have to miss the premiere and the opportunity to watch it with our church family. We have talked often about going to the theater and seeing this film as soon as my Sweet Hubby felt up to it.

Well, it looks like we'll be going either today or tomorrow! I'll let you know what we think of it! For now, here's a sneak peek for you - enjoy!! (**Remember to scroll down and pause my player first!)

Have a Blessed day!

I'm going to see that movie tomorrow night, I hope it's as good as they say. I love movies.

It's good to be back! Things are crazy, but i love it. I suffer from depression - so I feel like God is giving me an opportunity to focus on something other than me. :) I hope I didn't offend anyone with my last post - I was thinking afterwards that there are so many people out there with genuine issues and pain. But I was really talking about the whiny ones that have good lives and don't realize it.

I pray that your husband is doing as good as he's able to - and that you keep waking up with that strength to get through the day! You always seem so cheerful and upbeat in your posting - it's a beautiful thing to see, especially in the "poor me" age of today. God (continue)to bless, and heal you both!!

You are an amazing woman! Your posts continue to bring me to tears. You have been on my mind the last few weeks and now I know why! Would you please e-mail me your husbands first name? I would like to put something besides Sweet Hubby on our weekly prayer list!! :)

My husband & I saw Fireproof on opening night. It is very good, about the same filming level as Facing the Giants, but very well written. It has an excellent story line, with very real issues that people can relate to. I would definitely recommend it. I'm looking forward to some very positive results coming from this movie!

praying for you and your Sweet Hubby...
