story of hope and inspiration!

Last night we watched a movie called Letters to God. It was a good movie but not quite the quality in acting and in the movie itself but...it was truly a story of hope and inspiration. On the back of the movie is says this... It was inspired by a true story. Letters to God delivers a message of hope, faith, and courage that others can apply to their own personal struggles regardless of what they may face in their lives. 
I think what I loved the most about this movie i,s that it was once again a child who showed everyone the way. It was his faith, hope and courage, that ended up changing so many other lives. Isn't that true? Have you ever listened to a child's prayer? It is simple, direct and heartfelt. I feel like sometimes I forget some of those basic steps, and I shouldn't. So it was a good movie!

 Well, I am here at my sister-in-law's home, which was just built and they have only been here less than a week. It is simply beautiful!
We are so excited, we leave tomorrow to head back East, and then after we get her daughter packed up from college and then put her on the plane, we are headed on a big road trip. It probably could be done in 3-4 days, but not with my back. So we decided to just take our time and enjoy being together, doing whatever we want. I just have to be home by the 10th of June for my flight home! I can't believe I get to go on a road trip with one of my best friends ( sister-in-law ), and no time schedule or appointments!!!!! This is going to be fun!
I will try to document the whole thing, just for fun!
Good night dear friends.

 Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless. Jamie Paolinetti

 “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
