You Should Be a Poet

You have a way with words… and a talent for drawing the pure emotions out of experiences.
Your poetry has the potential to make people laugh and cry at the same time. You just need to write it!
What Sort of Artist Should You Be?

this reminds me of something

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

Dana mentioned something about 21 days of no complaining and I googled it and came across this article which led to this website. It reminds me of something I read in Calm My Anxious Heart:A Woman’s Guide To Contentment by Linda Dillow
*Never allow yourself to complain about anything – not even the weather.
*Never picture yourself in any other circumstances or someplace else.
*Never compare your lot with others.
*Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
*Never dwell on tomorrow – remember that [tomorrow] is God’s, not ours.

That was found in the diary of a missionary to Africa named Ella.
Yet again…I feel very, very, very….small.

Bridge to Terabithia

Monday, March 5th, 2007

I finished my second book in the TBR challenge. Actually I finished it in one afternoon. It was Bridge to Terebithia by Katherine Paterson. I had a multitude of reasons for including this book in my challenge.
1. I had never read it and I don’t know why?!
2. They now have a movie out and I CANNOT see a movie without reading the book.
3. My son wanted to see the movie and I must then read the book and see the movie first because that is the type of parent I am.
So one afternoon late last month I sat down with BTT and could not put it down. I finished by the end of the evening. I was wrapped up in the lives of Jess Aarons and Leslie Burke. Having not read it as a child maybe I see a lot more in it than a child would, but I see a son who wants to be loved my his father (maybe this is more intense right now because I’m also reading The 5 Love Languages of Children) but I also so understood the girl whose imaginations was fed by books. Sound like anyone you know?
Then last night I went to see the movie. They took huge Hollywood liberties, but I think they stayed true to the heart of the story. *sob*
Bring a box of kleenex with you to the reading and the watching.
Here is a link to an interview done with Ms. Paterson on Christianity Today. I also enclosed a favorite part of the interview for me. Note: there are some spoilers so if you have not read the book or seen the movie…do so first! You will not be disappointed.
There’s a trend lately to provide books and films for Christian audiences that are “safe for the whole family.” Perhaps your books have been challenged because they’re not necessarily “safe” for children. What do you make of the idea that children’s books should be “safe”?
Paterson: Well, don’t give them the Bible, then, because it’s certainly not a safe book. Safety and faith are different things. If you want everything to be safe, then you can probably just totally do without the imagination. If you’re so afraid of your imagination that you stifle it, how are you going to know God? How can you imagine heaven?

Does the US do anything like this?
