"It's A Wonderful Life"


I have probably watched this movie at least 10 times over the last month as Skip has prepared for their live "radio" performance Christmas show coming up in only 8 days. It really is such a great story and one we should all watch at least once over the Christmas season.
Last night Skip had the cast over for snacks and practice. They all sat in front of our big screen and watched the movie, as Skip would stop and explain character feelings and background that would help the overall performance. I actually enjoyed watching Skip more than I did the movie last night. He is so passionate when he is directing and leading. He loves the process of seeing a project or new idea come to life. As I listened to him share with the group, I praised God for Skip's gifts and abilities. The gifts and abilities that God has allowed to provide food, clothing, and shelter for our family over the last 15 years of marriage. Even more than that, the gifts and abilities have helped reach so many for Christ through his ministry. Thank you God for all the talents you give each of us to accomplish your purposes.

It is wonderful to see your spouse using the gifts God has given him, isn't it?

I love this movie. That will be tonight or tomorrow's movie with the family,

A great reminder that ALL we are and have are to be used for God's purposes!
