A few months back my Dad and I discussed the fact that Pat Robertson seems to be shooting himself in the foot quite often lately. Well, apparently we are not the only ones who feel that way. Tom Ponchak has started a petition entitled Christians Against Pat Speaking (CAPS). I have great respect for Pat Robertson and consider myself honored to have walked within 6 feet of him as I left a restaurant after a wonderful lunch last April, but his recent inflamatory comments are not progressing the cause of Christ. As Christians, it is our duty to love others (remember the “greatest commandment”?), but Rev. Robertson’s recent behavior demonstrates everything but love.

Well, Christmas is two days away. I finished my school work on Monday, finished my shopping on Monday, finally got most of my Christmas cards in the mail Wednesday (if you haven’t received one yet and think you should, it’s probably in the mail or still sitting on my desk – I’m thinking about sending Martin Luther King Day cards 🙂 ). Life has calmed down somewhat. Gifts still aren’t wrapped, though…

Today I went to see The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with my sisters and a friend. That is the best movie I have seen in a long time! Now I’m trying to figure out if I can fit it in my schedule to go back with some other friends next week. Awesome, terrific, fantastic movie! One of the most common questions I’ve heard is: does it keep true to the book? Answer: I don’t have a clue. Does it stay true to the Wonderworks movie? Not as I remember it. However, it’s been so long since I read the book that I can’t recall if it matched the movie or not. Now I want to read it again… Were I still working at the library I would grab the book first thing Monday morning. Since I don’t… I’ll have to make a special trip. 🙂

Actually, first I need to finish The Christmas Wish. I am thoroughly enjoying that book.

Life’s funny isn’t it? I’ll elaborate at another time. Hey, there has to be some reason for you to come back! 🙂
