Inspiration Station: The Encounter 1&2


Let me start by saying both of these films are AMAZING!!!!  I absolutely fell in love with the original film, it is simple, direct, and to the point.  The plot basically consists of 5 strangers traveling along a washed out road in the middle of nowhere who are re-routed by a state trooper to a roadside diner.  The 5 strangers walk into a retro diner circa 1950s run by Jesus Christ.  He offers to prepare any meal they request free of charge, and of course, the only beverage served is water.  Jesus immediately alerts the strangers to who he is, giving small pieces of information about each individual to add validity to his claim.  Each of the strangers is offered an opportunity to begin life anew in Christ.  Eventually, all accept except Crusher, an ex-football player and self-made millionaire.  The film ends with all accepting the experience an going on to live.   Crusher, however, is led by state trooper Deville to his demise.  This movie's simplicity is fantastic.  This is what it means to be a Christian.  The message is clear, and very easily comprehended by the observer.

In the sequel, Jesus is back on his soul saving quest, setting his sights on a bed and breakfast in a tropical location that was hit by a tsunami a few years before.  This film was  much more detailed, and included back stories for all the characters involved.  Deville is present in this film as well, however, is on  the opposite site of the law.  The movie, once all characters are present, unfolds very similar to its predecessor,  with only one character choosing not to accept Christ, and the others going on to live life to its fullest.

I decided to bring these films to the forefront because they are IMPORTANT.  We as people can address nonsense all day everyday, but decide not to confront what matters.  These films were not only entertaining, but also  non-judge mental and allow you to make the choice.  Even if you don't believe, watching films like these at least allow you to see what Faith is all about, and allows you the opportunity to discuss your disbelief in an educated manner.  If there is one thing that irks me above all others, it is someone trying to argue a point with no premise.  Let it be known: I BELIEVE.

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on theminsjournal.com that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
