Its a low budget movie produced by a small Christian Church in Georgia. The same people that made "Facing the Giants."
It's based on the book "The Love Dare"
Too many marriages end when someone says “I’ve fallen out of love with you” or “I don’t love you anymore.” In reality, such statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.
Each day’s entry discusses a unique aspect of love, presents a specific “dare” to do for your spouse (some will be very easy, others very challenging), and gives you a journaling area to chart the progress that you will be making.
Check out the Fireproof your Marriage site
I thought it was a great movie!

A young and successful executive was traveling down a
neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.
He was watching for kids darting out from between parked
cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.
As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick
smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes
and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The
angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and
pushed him up against a parked car shouting, 'What was that all about and who
are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new
car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of
money. Why did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.
'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't
know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the
brick because no one else would stop...' With tears
dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed
to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my
brother, 'he said 'He rolled off the curb and fell
out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.'
Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive,
'Would you please help me get him back into his
wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly
swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the
handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a
linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts.
A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.
'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful
child told the stranger. Too shook up for words, the man
simply watched the boy! push his wheelchair-bound brother
down the sidewalk toward their home.
It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was
very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the
dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of
this message: 'Don't go through life so fast that
someone has to throw a brick at you to get your
attention!' God whispers in our souls and speaks to our
hearts. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen, He
has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or
Thought for the Day:
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning Face it, friend - He
is crazy about you!
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without
sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the
, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

If you've never had it done.... The following will help you prepare..
PREPARING FOR THE YEARLY MAMMOGRAM
Many women fear their first mammogram, and even if you've had them before, there is the fear. There is no need to worry. By taking a few minutes each day for a week preceding the exam, do the following practice exercises/ You will be totally prepared for the test, and best of all, you can do these simple practice exercises in the privacy of your home.
EXERCISE 1: Open your refrigerator door, and insert one breast between the door and the main box. Have one of your strongest friends slam the door shut as hard as possible and lean on the door for good measure.
Hold that position for five seconds.
Repeat in case the first time wasn't effective.
EXERCISE 2: Visit your garage at 3 a.m. when the temperature of the cement floor is just perfect. Take off all your clothes and lie comfortably on the floor sideways with one breast wedged under the rear tire of the car. Ask a friend to slowly back the car up until your breast is sufficiently flattened and chilled.
Switch sides, and repeat for the other breast.
EXERCISE 3: Freeze two metal bookends overnight.
Strip to the waist.
Invite a stranger into the room.
Have the stranger press the bookends against either side of one of your breasts and smash the bookends together as hard as he/she can.
Set an appointment with the stranger to meet next year to do it again.
You are now properly prepared!Seriously... All women over age 40 should have their yearly mammogram!

We stayed at the cemetery after the funeral so that we could visit my Dad's grave. After we left, my nieces were riding with me back to the church for a Family dinner. We had to stop the car and wait while some cattle were crossing the road. My nieces wanted me to honk the horn for them to get out of the way..
I had to explain to them that this happens out in the country. The men on horses round up the cattle and herd them to a new pasture. We just had to be patient for all of them to cross the road.
Yes! We still have cowboys!

This is where we had the viewing for my Aunt Marva. The inside is beautiful. I had to take a few pictures. The ceiling dome is covered with hand painted Angels.
There are granite engravings all over the walls. The smallest are about 8 feet tall. They are about 10 foot windows in the entry of the building.
This one of Christ, including the verse is probably about 12 feet tall.
There are also bronze statues.
It's a very beautiful and peaceful place.

Aunt Marva is one of my Dad's older sisters. She babysat us before and after school and summers. She was a soft spoken person but radiated with love. She had a sense of humor and I remember her silly little grin and laugh.
I am not looking forward to the drive but look forward to seeing family that I don't often get to see. What happened to the good ole days when we had family gatherings on weekends? Went on a Sunday drive to visit. Didn't care what day of the week it was or how late we stayed up.
As I prepare to gather together to visit with family and pay my respects to Aunt Marva, I can't help but be jealous of the reunion that she is having too. She'll see many family members including my dad. What a joyous moment! Give Dad a hug and tell him I Love him!
(I have scheduled More Valentine posts while I'm gone. Be sure and come visit)
