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

You Only Owe YOURSELF

I had an epiphany the other day... What if we put all the energy we expel on others that is foolishly wasted BACK into ourselves, our life dreams, and into creating the world we CHOOSE to live in??!! Before we all become hopelessly selfish and self-involved, re-read, and take in the thought in its ENTIRETY!!!  I am talking SPECIFICALLY in instances where your positive energy, time, and effort are not being reciprocated. There are so many situations we find ourselves in to which we develop an animosity of sorts towards those we are actively trying to help when we don’t feel that same energy being returned to us in one form or another.  Yet, we are taking umbridge with the wrong individual.  The person we should be focusing those feelings is right there waiting on the other side of the mirror.  That is who entangled you and your resources to an individual making moves to which your higher self is not in agreement.  This is who we should look to for explanation and a game

Being Present

This Moment, the one happening right now, is ALL that there is.  Allow me to explain... Yes, there is a past, things that have already happened.  What must be understood about these events is, once they happen, they are OVER.  It's gone.  If it is any point in time that you are not actively engaged in, that point does not currently exist.  The principle is also works on the inverse; anything that has yet to occur, has yet to come into existence , and should have absolutely NO bearing on what is currently happening to you. Our past is a experienced-based tool from which to learn and grow FORWARD.  It is not meant to trap us or the people in our lives, preventing our best lives from being brought to fruition.  If there is something behind you, LET IT GO.  Grasp the lesson and understand that there is no going back.  On the same note, we must also do the same when it comes to anticipation of events yet to come.  Being wrapped up in anxiety of how something MAY play out
