I went to see the new Noah movie last night. I am not thankful for that. It was horrible and so screwed up. Anyway, I do not recommend it, and I was so sorry I took my daughter. I am thankful for the real Noah story however and the real Noah of Genesis. He was such a cool guy who loved animals and loved God and his family.
After the movie, I went home and read the true Biblical version of the story and found Noah again in my mind and imagination. I don’t imagine him as described in the movie at all. He was a good man who loved his family and loved God. He was called to such a terrible thing though. I can’t imagine the drownings. Those parts of the story must have been real. Such tragedy brought on by man’s sin and evil of those earlier times.
Now, I look at our world of hope and love. It is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination because evil does still exist, but I see Christ’s love and holiness everywhere as people seek Him more. I pray daily for countries where there is war and strife. I pray daily that we embrace Christ example of sacrifice and holiness. Imagine a world where we all die to selfish desires and sin and embrace love, peace and holiness. Yes, I am featuring Christ as my A to Z theme for April.
I also see a world full of nature and beauty. I was out exploring the countryside the other day when I met these lovelies. I wanted to make friends, so I pulled my car over and called to them. To my surprise, they came and let me greet them by petting their snouts. I even kissed the cream colored one on the nose!
It was cloudy day, but I enjoyed taking pictures at my local strawberry patch. I can’t wait til the berries are red and ripe next month.
Finally, I got the magazine where my article was published in the mail. I am so proud of how it looks.
