I think the biggest thing that God has been showing me this year is to find my validation in Him alone. To meet His expectations alone. To live for His smile alone. I will never be able to do what every one thinks I should be able to do or live in such a way that meets the expectations of everyone and that is ok... I am here to live the life God wants me to live - no matter how countercultural it is :)
Ok, so onto the monthly "My Two Cents"...
I'm just going to come right out and admit that I have been addicted to the "When Calls the Heart" series that came out last spring on the Hallmark Channel... I know, I know but sometimes I can become a hopeless romantic. I have those moments of wanting to curl up on the couch and watch a movie that has nothing wrong with it, still has a good story line and has decent actors. The series is not based off of Janette Oke's books (When Comes the Heart series) like the "Love Comes Softly" series was (which is probably why I can watch it without any pre-judgments). I have to admit that I am not a big fan of the Love Comes Softly series past the first and second movie... I just loved the books too much and didn't really enjoy the actors and story lines... So I admit to being a bit apprehensive when "When Calls the Heart" came out, however I was captivated by the pilot and have been impatiently waiting for all the episodes to come out on DVD for the past few months! Definitely check it out!
