The Help

Last night Hubs and I watched the newer movie "The Help". While I won't go into detail or political whatever or even opinions... I will tell you I cried. Several times my throat lumped up and tears met the corners of my eyes. Sad, just very sad - the state of life sometimes.
- Parents refusing responsibility of their children
- Spouse abuse
- Broken and hypocritical relationships
- Racism
- Backward thinking

Just sad. And even more sad {tho not surprising}... not much has changed.

This morning my friend Londa posted a video on her blog - it's about 18 minutes or so, but, if you have the time - I encourage you to check it out. It's Pastor John Piper and his recollection of growing up in this similar time period with similar circumstances.

Click here to be directed to her blog. It's worth it. :)

Have not seen this, but I've heard RAVE reviews from everyone who has, even guys. Maybe this will be what we get for our Redbox movie night tomorrow night! (If I can convince Dave that it's not a chick flick!)
