Moviessssss

Some more awesome movies I’ve watched recently that everyone should watch. Here’s part 1! (The Departed, the Breakfast Club, Almost Famous, The Big Lebowski, American Beauty) 

1. The Godfather I & II (1972, 1974) 

Everyone always says you should watch these movies, and now I know why. Marlon Brando. Al Pacino. ‘nuff said. “I’m going to make you an offer that you can’t refuse……….” 

2. Taxi Driver (1976) 

Never thought too much of Robert DeNiro until I saw this movie. A film that catalogs the makings of a psychopath in NYC. You want to root for him but he’s a pretty terrible person. And the music. THE MUSIC! Fun fact. The guy who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan was inspired by this movie… He was obsessed with Jodie Foster, who is one of the main characters. O__O 

3. Do The Right Thing (1989)

Follows a cast of characters in one confined neighborhood on the hottest day of the year, while racial tensions rise and explode. All of the cast have so much personality that it’s hard to believe they’re acting. (Are they? I’m not sure that they are…)

4. City of God (2002)

I feel like I’m cheating on this one because I watched it for class last semester. Basically about gangs of teenagers that run the slums of Rio de Janeiro. And then the main character is just this kid who really likes taking photographs. Kind of tragic. Kind of amazing. 

5. Fargo (1996)

If you ever wondered… “what would gangster and crime movies look like set in rural, snowy minnesota?” then here is your answer. Fargo. Conclusions drawn from this movie - Minnesotans are amazing. And all criminals are actually just a joke.

my God, the baus

He who forms the mountains, creates the wind,
and reveals his thoughts to man,
He who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth —
the Lord God Almighty is his name.

- Amos 4:13

Ed Sheeran - Small Bump

On endless repeat. So beautiful, but so sad… 

You are my one, and only
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb
And hold me tight

Psalm 127

Unless the Lord builds the house, it’s builders build in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.

I’ve been really blessed with these opportunities to design for my home church. I’m not the most talented designer or illustrator, but they let me experiment and try out new things. They’re really supportive, which is crazy, considering how much money it costs them to print the things I make. 
… I really like drawing Jesus as a cartoon…

The point Paul is making, then, is that we have been called not only to enjoy the comforts of the gospel but also to pass them on. If you have received personal benefit from the gospel at the hands of other believers, then maintain the tradition: treat others in a way that they too will receive benefit. After all, we profess to trust and follow one whose entire mission was characterized by self-denial: in obedience to his heavenly Father he gave and gave and gave. Your attitude, writes Paul, should be the same as his: give and give and give.

D. A. Carson, Basics for believers: an exposition of philippians

I have a Father

who hears my cries, who sees my tears, who holds me close
brings me comfort by compelling me to worship wholeheartedly
