First, it's a line from the theme song to a fantastic movie I saw over the weekend. The Young Victoria. I'm such a sap for history, historical dramas and romance, so I absolutely loved the film. If your curious to know more about the film you can view the trailerhere. The movie was delightful to watch, and it is has further urged me to do more research on Victoria and her Prince Albert myself. Any film that makes me want to dig into history and do some reading gets my vote.
Secondly, in retrospect of yesterday [Easter] and the significance the day holds, I think the line [see blog title] perfectly sums what Jesus Christ did for you and I. I was definately taken in by the words the Pastor spoke in Church yesterday morning. That while Jesus Christ died for my sins, so we also will die. It's what happens to us mortals, naturally. His [Jesus] death wasn't the clincher as to the reason I/we have hope, faith, forgiveness and a home waiting for us in Heaven. It's not the reason we "celebrate" Easter. It it because He defeated death and rose again! Because he was risen from the dead, our faith is not futile. He was seen by witnesses and changed lives and is still changing lives today. He took my life and made it beautiful...he saved me from my sins and saved me to a cause. To a life of purpose, struggle, pain, joy, learning, loss and gain...a beautiful life indeed. He can do the same for you too.
As of late, I've been listening, non-stop, to the music of "The Civil Wars". If you haven't had a listen...here's a link to their site. You will love I promise. In my opinion, not only are they a fantastic duo and wonderful cover artists, but also potentially amazing collaborators. I came across this video today, it's of Lucy Swartz (another great artist) who toured a bit with The Civil Wars. The harmonizing in this clip is...well... *sigh. ENJOY!
I kid you not, my mother had me in saddle shoes from the tender age of 2 all way thru elementary school. I used to look back at pictures and ask her why she made me wear them all the time...she just laughed. They weren't the only shoes I had, but they were a style she bought again and again. I had them in Black and in Pink...*sigh. If only my mother had kept them. I disliked them for so long...then I came across these. A more grown up version and I am in love! My mother was a stylish one. I told her I should get them for nostalgic purposes. Of course, she told me to get them. I'm debating on whether I should...
Thanks for visiting my blog. Which, to say, is more like an online journal. I figured cluttering my home with notebooks was getting to be a little much. With eveything I'm into, frankly, I was running out of room.
