Sunday May 1, 2011

I had a good day today. Church this morning was great! My Pastor preached a good message on the importance of forgiveness and then after the service I started selling tickets for my spaghetti lunch fundraiser event. Today was the first Sunday that I started selling tickets so it was basically a day where I was notifying people about the event because it was the first time many people heard about it. There were quite a few people that expressed interest in going so that was encouraging!

The rest of the day I just stayed home with my family. I was thinking about going to church with my brother Jonathan but then we ate dinner too late so we didn’t end up going but instead we decided to have a family movie night. I have wanted to see the movie The King’s Speech for a while now because I heard it is a great movie and it even won an Oscar award too.

It was really great to watch the movie with my family and of course it is always great to spend time with your family.  I really liked The King’s Speech a lot because I found it to be a very inspiring movie. It was a good reminder that we have to overcome our fears and keep on pressing on to be able to do what we are destined to do with our lives. There was one quote by the king’s speech therapist that really struck me which was “you cannot let your fears govern you” which is something that I have to stop doing is to not let my fears govern me any longer.

The ending was incredible how the king made an amazing speech during the Second World War. All of the speeches that the king had made before did not go well but this time was different of how his speech therapist coached him through the speech which was broadcast on the radio and he overcame his speech impediment that he had. The movie was also based on a true story as well. I love movies that inspire and encourage you especially from a true story. I highly recommend this movie to everyone!
