Last night I watched a wonderful movie named 'Hugo.' It came out a while back but just recently on DVD and I've always wanted to see it. It is set in Paris in the 1930's, and it is about an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his clockmaking father and automaton. The cinematography is stunning and I just love that time period anyways, so it was simply delightful. I'm not surprised that it won so many awards. I also love Chloe Grace Moretz, Jude Law, Helen McCrory and basically all of the other actors in the film. I really want to get ahold of the book by Brian Selznick. If you haven't seen this movie….you need to.
On another unrelated note, I was up late last night and right before I went to bed, my friend posted a link to a blog post from a church. I clicked on it and it was a entry entitled 'The Word of the Lord: Wait.' It was actually just what I needed to read and it had wonderful scripture references about being sensitive to hearing and obeying the Holy Spirit's voice and timing. One stuck out to me and it was the passage of Psalm 27:14 - "Wait in faith on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart; wait I say, on the Lord."It mentioned many other points that made me step back and think. Our circumstances are to draw us closer to God. We observe other people's situations, but we should not envy them. It was a blessing that my friend posted that because those are the words I needed to hear. I see other people's situations and wonder what God's plan is for me and what will happen. But I just have to trust in Him and know that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."(Romans 8:28)
I hope you all had a great Sunday and had time to rest before your week ahead! I know mine is terribly busy. Thanks very much for taking the time to read :)
