Let me start by making one thing clear; I know nothing about movies. I’m not “a movie guy” by any means. In fact, I’d venture to say that since the year 2001 (the year I got married), I can count the number of times I’ve gone to a movie theater on one hand. Shocking isn’t it?
The bottom line is this: I don’t know anything about movies nor do I care to.
But I do know about life. And I know when a movie (or a book or a sermon or a whatever) hits me in such a way that makes me ask myself what life is all about and what am I/we doing with the lives that we’ve been given. This past Friday was one of those times.
The movie is called THE BLIND SIDE and it hit the big screen back in 2009. And yes, I just saw it this past Friday (I told you I’m not a movie guy). My wife and I have wanted to see the movie for years but never could get ourselves to spend the $3.99 to rent it [don’t tell this to anyone but sometimes my wife can be a little on the ‘thrifty’ side :) ].
