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.
