The End of The Spear

Several years ago we read the story of Nate Saint in school. Every day we begged mama to read another chapter of his exciting and moving adventures in the Amazon jungles. When we reached the end of the book and read of his death we all cried. Yes, through reading the book we felt like we knew him!

Last night we watched The End of The Spear for the second time. After seeing these people risk their lives to reach a savage tribe, and dying by their spears because they refused to fight back it made my life seem so small and insignificant. It made me question if I was doing anything that would matter for God.

The End of The Spear is an excelent movie! There were some violent parts that made mama and I turned our heads away, but those grafic scenes make you realize what kind of place they were living in. At first I didn't quite like a few of the actors, but when you look at the actual people they were trying to act like you'll see that they did very well with this movie. It is moving, inspiring, interesting, and true. Now that is a movie worth watching!

True or False?

Everyday when I get home from work I check my e-mail and find forward after forward. I will say that some of them are good, but most of them just aren't anything special. Then there are those that are really good . . . but not always true. I have been "fooled" more then once by an e-mail sent to me in good faith by a friend who simply didn't know any different. That is why I love Snopes. When I receive an e-mail that just doesn't make sense or isn't that believable I look it up at snopes to see weather it is legend or reality. It comes in real handy!

Memories of 2008

My sister Bethany said I'm "IT" in a game of "blog tag."

Here's the rules:
1. fill in your memories of 2008.
2. Link my blog to yours.
3. Tag others and comment on their blog so they know they are tagged.

Here I go!

I have finished: The Medical Coding Course

A movie I have watched: Flywheel, made my the producers of Facing the Giants (I thought this movie was a lot better though!)

A new skill I have aquired: Decorating cakes with fondant icing.

A moment I will always remember: When I was wet and floured by my brother at my graduation party. I was one sticky mess!

A book I have read: Mostly the Bible, but also "What Do I Know About My God?" by Mardi Collier

An inspiring verse or quote: "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." Romans 8: 24-25

Now I tag Under Southern Skies and Anne. Have fun girls!
