What are you doing up so late? Your utubes are always quite interesting. Good night.

Andy works late so our whole household runs on a later schedule than what most people do. Monkey's bedtime is around 10-10:30, Andy & I aim for about midnight but it often stretches out toward 1:00. Morning starts at about 8:30 or 9:00, unless there is a compelling reason to start it earlier... say, morning church.

I thought it was pretty amazing myself... and I loved the way her black clothing kept making her fade in and out of visibility! Except that her face was always there, which also really works well for the message that she's trying to get across.

I thot it was really good, too. But right at the end it made me wonder if some of the things about not doing it for "them" was an indicator of not believing in the eternal family. Belief in an eternal family really changes your outlook at family members; when you recognize that the "warts" they have aren't necessarily going to always be there. A lot of people expect their family relationships to be eternal, warts adn all, even tho most of christian dogma doesn't include eternal families. But there were some mighty fine thoughts there. Downright inspirational.

I went and had a look at the website that it shows there at the end, and I believe that she's some sort of Protestant, so if she does believe in eternal families it's likely not a fully developed sense of the majesty of the principle. I too think that she's a bit off there, but not far at all. I'm sure that there were days when I was trying your patience & Mom's that you were ready to do it for Him and not so worried about me right at the moment. Even with that, I thought it was wonderful. The idea of allowing the Lord to use that feeling of invisibility to help us root out our selfishness & other character flaws is just a wonderful thing. And I suspect that looking at it that way also has the potential to make us better parents.
