Day 2352 – The Lego Movie And Sobriety

A year and a half ago, I watched The Lego Movie for the first time. I don’t remember much of it. Bret tells me I made a comment about the the theme song being about brainwashing kids to be on a team. Why don’t I remember much? Well, I was too intoxicated to remember.

I have a lot of non-memories like this. There are so many spans of time that are gone. There are great moments with friends and family that are fuzzy. I have a hard enough time trying to remember what happened yesterday!

I watched The Lego Movie again today, completely sober. It’s really rather good! So many half jokes and witty jokes. As I was watching, I was thinking how thankful I am that God finally got through to me and changed my heart and my desires. People ask how I was able to quit and it is 100% God. Not 50/50 or even 10% me. He gave me the strength to follow His commands. He opened my eyes to my sin. 0% me.

I have no “great goal” for this post….just wanting to give a big shout out to the guy upstairs (yes, movie reference), and say thanks. 🙂

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
