We all have things that we have inherited from the generations before us. Ben has his personality traits and I have my defined calves. Some of the things we inherit can be gifts, some of them are burdens, a lot of them are a weird combination of both.

In my wife's blog she contemplates how far we've gone in our 14 years of marriage...using food as the analogy. Check it out:

More reviews (technically one anticipatory preview),
May Jesus reign in our hearts this busy season!
At times in my life I’ve found myself in Troy’s shoes (not the singing and dancing part; I only do that at home). I constantly fight double-mindedness, making promises I can’t keep. I hate that about myself, and it doesn’t work and it hurts the ones I love.
Honestly, I still don’t get it. I popped the screener for The Simpsons Movie in the old DVD player and just felt like I wanted to get those precious minutes of my life back. Actually, there was one scene that stuck with me and won’t let go.
I want to be so sold out for Jesus that I wouldn’t care what people think of me. A faith so strong that people see it and are drawn to it. I don’t want to look crazy like a Benjamin Gates… but part of me does, because Jesus is that awesome!

I wrote a review for Stardust which I saw a few weeks ago at the Drive-In. Apparently it was coming out in DVD today so the editor posted it today.
Most fairy tales have a great message, something that speaks to the heart and tells us about life. This fairy tale is no different; it speaks of growing up and putting away childish things: through a fairy tale, no less, which makes it even better!
In other news have you heard of this bill that the Governator signed? It's not cool. Here's some info from my lovely wife. If you go to our Church she will have petitions to sign this Sunday Dec 16th so come by and sign it.

Not sure what's up with my logo...I think logomaker's server is down. Here are the last four reviews I've done:
I took two 2-week trips with my white classmates to Chile and Brazil then Japan and Thailand. They only had to feel that discomfort for 4 weeks, but they got a great taste of it! I believe all of us feel something very similar.
The list of heroes goes on, from veterans to the stay-at-home mom, or the young pastor that grew a church from a living room Bible Study. These are the people that don’t get enough credit or attention. Yet they go on, being “that guy,” as McClane calls it.
I love this story because of true love, because of God’s unfailing love for me. God knows I’ve doubted it and been unlovable, but no matter what his love never fails me. This story reminds me of that and that’s why it is one of my all time favorite movies.
I once heard that after a dog has puppies it will sometimes eat one or two of them. I know, gross, huh? But it makes me think of Christians. We often like to devour our own. This documentary, Rebellion of Thought, is not much different.
