Song Lyrics. They Matter.

I saw Into The Woods again.
This time with Danica. 
And this time I listened more closely to the song lyrics.
(It IS a musical after all...)

I loved the words to the last song:

How do you say to your child in the night?
Nothing's all black, but then nothing's all white
How do you say it will all be all right
When you know that it might not be true?
What do you do?

Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful the things you do
Children will see and learn
Children may not obey, but children will listen
Children will look to you for which way to turn
To learn what to be
Careful before you say "Listen to me"
Children will listen

Careful the wish you make
Wishes are children
Careful the path they take
Wishes come true, not free

Careful the spell you cast
Not just on children
Sometimes a spell may last
Past what you can see
And turn against you

Careful the tale you tell
That is the spell
Children will listen
How do you say to a child who's in flight
"Don't slip away and I won't hold so tight"

What can you say that no matter how slight
Won't be misunderstood.
What do you leave to your child when you're dead?
Only whatever you put in it's head
Things that your mother and father had said
Which were left to them too

Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful you do them too
Children will see
And learn
Guide them, but step away
Children will glisten
Tamper with what is true
And children will turn
If just to be free
Careful before you say
"Listen to me"
Children will listen 


Saw Selma tonight with some friends.
You should probably see it. 
It's good.


Are families important?
Like, in general, is the concept of "FAMILY" important for society?

I'm watching this series, one DVD at a time, during my lunch break on Tuesdays at work. 

I recommend it. Each disc is less than half an hour. 
Great for personal information, or a group study, or family devotions, or whatever. 

Informative and inspiring. 


Three things I'm thankful for:

1. The movie/entertainment industry. So glad that God gifted people with talent.

2. Meds. After a couple misfires, I've finally got the right meds for that bladder infection I got LAST WEEK. WHOLEY HANNAH it's been an uncomfortable 7 days. So glad that between the doctor and the pharmacist we got that worked out. 

3. The internet. So much info on it:

WHAT A FUN LIST of date ideas. No, really. Very creative. Even I would want to do these ... (Well, except for #2, #15, #17)

Here's a good article on being married to a boring man. Sigh. Boring sounds lovely. Haha.

Here's an interesting post, written by a marriage counsellor on WHY WOMEN LEAVE MARRIAGES. I read this, like, 10 minutes after hearing about a young woman who left her husband because of abandonment issues. He was never there. He kept so busy, that he was never home. And when he was home, his mind was elsewhere. Anyway, good article to chew on.

Donald Miller has written a new book and he's posted Chapter 5 online for free. It's about his fear of intimacy. 

And THIS! How fun. One of my co-workers has just posted on Facebook that they are going to host Meatball Friday night EXACTLY as per this article:

Starting next Friday, we're cooking up a pot of spaghetti and meatballs every Friday night and sitting down at the dining room table as a family—along with anyone else who'd like to join us. Friends, neighbors, relatives, clients, Facebook friends who'd like to hang out in real life, travelers passing through: you are welcome at our table. We'll just ask folks to let us know by Thursday night so we know how many meatballs to make. 

And how awesome does this sound? AS SOON AS MY FOOT IS WALKABLE AGAIN - I am doing this. I hope. 

AND THIS ARTICLE ABOUT PORN! IN GQ Magazine (!)... 10 Reasons Why Your Should Quit Watching It. 
I know, right? 

And lastly. Save the Date: March 4 or 5. Focus is presenting the movie: The Drop Box.   You should totally see it. 


Just found a pic from December:
