I took my girls to see The Tale of Desperaux this afternoon. As a movie, all by itself, it was wonderful! The mouse, the rat, mouseworld, ratworld, Princess Pea...all beautiful.
If you read the book first, then went to the movie...what an extreme disappointment! The basic story line was like the book, but the details were completely different. Why? Why take a perfectly good, dare I say, great, book and then change all the details for the movie?
Then it hit me...I've read the "book" of my life and I want my life to be the best version of the Book it can be. I don't want people to have read the Bible and then see my life to know that they are connected. I don't want the disconnect to happen in their minds when I say that I am a Christian.
Just my thought for the day.
