My Son and I watched Evan Almighty, I was ready to fight it, but when it came out on Netflix, I said ‘what the heck, let’s watch it’

It’s an OK movie, I would not use the word blasphemous, corny-yes, but not blasphemous. It was better than Bruce Almighty.

The best part of the movie was when Morgan Freeman was talking to Evan’s wife at a restaurant.

He says “Do you think when you ask God for patience, he just gives you patience or does he give you opportunity to be patient, or when you ask for courage, does he give you opportunity to be courageous? And you ask God to bring your family closer together {because that’s what she asked for} he just gives you the warm fuzzies or does he give you opportunity to come tog. as a family?”

I would like to inspire you to think about the above comment, to think about a time when you asked your Heavenly Father for things like patience, courage and family. To think about what has happened in your life after you have asked for these things. To give glory to your Maker for answering your prayers.

Also, think about obeying your Creator as he answers those prayers….

Love, Kristina

From  Ephesians 5:3-4 

Dear Father, Keep me from talking about or thinking about illicit sex and pornography and covetousness, since you require that your holy people avoid referring to these things. Keep me from filthy stories, silly or flippant talk, and any other kind of conversation not fitting for one who follows you. Instead, let my mouth be filled with – thanksgiving! In the name of Jesus I ask for the purity of mind and spirit that was in him. And I give you thanks. Amen.

Ephesians 5:1Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

3But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.

  1. Oh MY GOSH! You make your dog wear clothes?! This is why dogs attack people. HA!
    ~~Total Tranny, my hubby bought that for the dog, I just buy her leashes and collars and call them her outfits. She has at least a dozen ‘outfits’ and a couple sweaters for holidays and a sparkly necklace for parties………ok, but I really don’t think she will attack me 😉

  2. That was my favorite part of the movie too!

    I don’t think anyone except Morgan Freeman should ever play God in a movie!

    Can i have a Brownie please???
    ~~Ugh, you can have all the brownies, I’m pretty sick of them 🙂

  3. Didn’t see the movie but it is a great quote, because there’s a lot of truth in it. We ask for help with our weaknesses and the Lord answers by giving opportunites to face them and draw upon His grace to overcome them with victory.

    It’s there for us if we will but avail oursleves of it.
    The american way however is to pray “Lord, I need your grace to overcome, but give it to me and give it to me NOW!”
    Ha. It never works that way, at least for me.
    But thats ok, His ways are always better than mine! ~~AMEN!

    Blessings to you!
    ( oh, and one of these days we will still have to meet up somewhere here in WA. 🙂


  4. I just came back JUST to look at the brownies again…MMM!!!!

    Well, and also to see you if you posted….

    G’on – get busy now… 😀
    Tam, i actually have 3 posts already to go for the next 3 days. I’ve been busy, we had the memorial service for my dear friend today, i was a little too sad to post, but i am checking up on all my blogging buddies!

  5. You should have used your all edges browny pan that you posted about a couple months ago.

    It was good to see you again Kristina, even if the reason wasn’t what we wanted.
    ~~she is home, and for that i am grateful. I don’t have the all edge brownie pan, i just want one. but if i would of had it, i would have eaten all the brownies myself! It was wonderful to see all of you, the kids are beautiful and sharletta is ready to pop, eh?
