We're driving in the car w/the radio on.... listening to music when Galilee says, "Hey...that's what Politan says!"
"Huh?...What does Pastor Politan say?"...I ask.
"That my name is written on His hand."
I often wonder if my kids are paying attention during sermons. I am convinced that there are many times when they are not. And, I am also convinced that there are those times when they are.
Oh, to see beyond the fidgeting and the and what appears to be blank stares at the ceiling.

I am gonna go ahead and say that this is a Must See Film for those of you who can handle Quentin Tarantino style wartime violence and things that go with it. The actors are brilliant...especially, Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa. Diane Kruger is flawless as Bridget von Hammersmark. And, Melanie Laurent is quite beautiful as Shoshanna Drefys..a Jewish girl who gets to change the course of history.
Mike Meyers took me by surprise. And how many times I laughed out loud... did also.
The opening farm scene is flawlessly executed...much much tension...and the closing theatre scene is off the charts insane.
Seems like a contradiction to some...I know. A home-educating, Christ following mother...watching and recommending a film like this.
Clearly defined lines drawn between good and evil....
...I have no problem with it.
That got me to thinking...if given the opportunity, would I have put an end to Hitler's life?
That got me to thinking about Deitrich Bonhoeffer and how much I stand behind his (and others) plot to do so.
And that got me to thinking more.....about how the enemy of our souls is really crafty and how he tempts us to get ourselves worked up into tizzies about all sorts of things we shouldn't be having problems with while at the same time distracting us from the things we should be troubled by.
This film is brilliant.

I think it is so fascinating...the ebbs and flows of our lives.
For me...this is a "visual period."
Images. Photos. Colors.... textures...emotions....layers. Expressed visually.
And it's funny how it all works itself out....this creative process. I feel like writing again....for a visual medium....the silver screen.
