Today was movie day for us. A local theatre has movies on Tuesday for $5.oo. We have been wanting to see "UP" and today it fit into our not so busy schedule. I had heard it was sad but I didn't really know what to expect. Well the first 20 minutes of the movie you might want to have your kleenex handy if you are a sappy person.
It is basically about an elderly man named Carl who so desperately wants to hold on to his house and all his memories he shared with his wife. But in the end learns that life brings you many different adventures along the way, some good and some not so good. He also realized he wanted to hold onto his house so badly because of all the memories that were made there, but in the end he knew that the memories were in his heart and not just possessions in the house.
No matter what adventures you have planned in your life or for your family, things may not go the way you want. I have heard and believe that God has our whole life planned out for us. If we could pull back the curtain we would see the wonderful things he has in store for us. Although I question this for myself some days I truly believe it to be real. Just like Carl did not plan on his life taking the direction it took, we also don't plan on our lives taking certain directions. We make the best of it, and keep trudging forward, waiting for the next chapter in our lives to begin. Only God knows what that chapter will hold, happiness, sorrow, despair, joy, confusion, contentment? Only God knows The little things in life he has planned for us. As for me I can't wait to see what is behind the curtain.
