Fun Friday ~ Olive Garden and Great Debaters


Today was Fun Friday and the kids are still off of school til' next Tuesday. We wanted to do something special as a family. We used a gift certificate today that we were given for Christmas - to the Olive Garden. We went out to eat together and ate a yummy meal there and then we went to the movies to see The Great Debaters. Wow! I loved it!!! I have been yearning to see it ever since I first heard about it and it was all I expected and more. I encourage everybody to see it. Powerful, powerful true story and piece of our history that few may know about until they see this movie. Inspiring...Emotional...it was all there.

Today I wrote a post on my other blog, Equal Time, that I co-write with my dear friend, Pastor Tara Sloan. Some of you might not know about that blog - just FYI - we launched it last August on "National Women's Equality Day." From time to time we take turns posting on issues relevant to the topic of the equality of women, particularly pertaining to ministry and leadership. For those who have interest, check out my post today about "just having that feeling" that someone has a prejudice attitude though they speak something else, your spirit tells you otherwise...

I had been working through this post in my mind for over a week now and it's interesting that after I saw the Great Debaters movie, it just further solidified my passion to write the post!

I'm sort of "blogged out" having spent time writing on Equal Time today, but I'll be back tomorrow with more here at Lifetime Intimate Portrait.
