   "Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication"
Leonardo Da Vinci

Sometimes it feels like we do things for circular reasons?
 For instance, have you ever felt like you keep your job that you may not want so you can keep a house that you may not want so you can stay in a place you may not want to be and maintain a lifestyle that you really aren't thrilled about?

Or have you ever felt like you were just spinning your wheels and not really living the life you should be living.

We are examining some of these things in our family now and looking at what it might take to embrace some more simplicity. 

I will let you know how that goes for us.

The Identical

I recently attended a pre-screening of the new movie, The Identical. Since it is released tonight and they were kind enough to let me come out and watch it early, I wanna let you know about it.

The basic gist is that a very Elvis like character has an identical twin that grows up in the 50's not knowing who he is, but finally finding his place as a first class impersonator of his superstar twin.

It is a fun movie, with some catchy original tunes, has a great cast, including Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta in major roles and it deals with a them that many of us struggle with, the idea of "what is my purpose and calling in life".

It won't be the supersplash hit of the year, but I think you will enjoy it and maybe even be a little challenged by the message> Maybe you will even be inspired to be a rockstar!

Check out The Identical

Look it in the eye

Look It In the Eye

I am looking for a pack of warriors to run with
that are ready to swing their swords
Train hard and have fun

Those that aren't afraid to stand up to the world, look it in the eye and say
"This is not how you should be!
And I can't fix everything, but I mean to leave a mark."

I am looking for a pack of warriors to run with
and I am ready to swing my sword.

Spiritual Gifts

The first book of Corinthians from the bible talks about some of the spiritual gifts that God gives to his people so they can love and serve one another and the world.

Sometimes, when I am in Church, it feels like the most important gifts include being quiet when someone else talks for a good 30-40 minutes straight. Or the gift of being able to actually sit still for that long.

Oh, and handshaking. I feel like I need a supernatural ability to shake hands sometimes. I suppose a big boost of super spiritual immunity is also important, after all that hand shaking. 

Please don't misunderstand. I love the Church. Sometimes, I just like to prod.

I Corinthians 12:21 "But desire the greater gifts. And I will show you an even better way."
