Bolt


Friday night Tom and I went to a $2.00 movie theater with a couple of friends. I wanted to laugh so we saw Bolt. I know it was released last year in November (which explains why it was at a $2.00 movie theater), but I just got around to seeing it.

I have to say it was such a cute movie. It was clean. It was funny. It made me laugh out loud. The hamster, Rhino, was the cutest thing ever. The New York pigeons were hilarious. If you haven’t gotten around to seeing this movie and want to see a cute, funny, family movie then Bolt is just right for you.

I know I’m a grown up and this was a “kid” movie, but don’t you just love those types of movies sometime? There are times I just don’t want to think about the plot or the meaning behind a movie. There are times I just want to see a movie that will both entertain me and make me smile. Yes, these types of movies are predicable, but who cares.

I watch chick flicks for the same reason. The plot line to every feel good chick flick – boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy wins girl in the end. It’s a formula that works why mess with it.

Sometimes in my relationship with God I find myself in the mode of predictability. I know what to expect and life is good as we move along together. I like those seasons. Then there the times when things move fast and there are many ups and downs. There are curve balls I didn’t see coming and believe it or not, I’ve learned that even in those types of situations God is still constant. He is who He is. His formula is the same. He loves me no matter what. I love that about Him.

That consistency is what kept my relationship with God, even in the darkest of times.

What a cute and uplifting post! Love this one, Nadine!!

I may have to rent Bolt just because you liked it.

Btw, I know what you mean about chick flicks. I don't want anyone messing with my happy, feelgood movies. They make me hopeful and bring a smile to my face. Come to think of it, your blog has the same affect on me (when you write about your feelings for Tom).

Hey, maybe YOU should write a chick flick!! I'll help you. :)

I love our constant and consistent God. I so need that assurance in this ever changing world! I am going to have to see that movie Bolt. I need a good laugh. And girl, I'm always a sucker for a chick flick!!!

Nadine, see my post this morning. You won a Bible study book from our random drawing for UBP. I just need a mailing address. Blessings and prayers always to you and Tom my bloggy friend!

"He loves me no matter what." Where would I be without that?

I like to watch movies that make me laugh, too. I'll pick a comedy over a drama almost any day.
