sunday night at the movies

Sunday night, I went to see Les Miserables with
my friend, her son and his sweetie.

I know the story is old and has been done
 many times on the stage and screen,
but I had never seen it or read it.
It is most definitely a story about misery.
My goodness, the poverty and hunger and filth. 
Much of the story was sad, but in the midst of the
misery was the amazing story of redemption
and an eye-opening picture of the difference
one person can make when their heart
 has been changed by the love and grace of God.

It was a spur of the moment decision to go...
I really invited myself! :-)
They were kind enough to let me "crash" their party...
and I am so glad they did! 


  1. We were able to see a stage production in London back in 2004 on the trip we took our daughter on for her graduation gift. Such a moving story...

  2. I'm so glad you did too! The songs have been playing in my head since Sunday night!

  3. HI Debbie, I want to see that movie... We just don't take time to go to movies much these days ---but this is one (of several) that I'd love to see...

    Thanks for your thoughts.

  4. I really enjoyed the movie as well! The story is a wonderful example of grace. I was touched and wanted to write about it while it was fresh in my mind, but never got to it.

  5. I have not seen the movie either but my daughter did and she loved it. She actually purchased the book so she could read it before she went back to college. Thanks for your comment on my blog today about the chicken and dumplings. I've never seen frozen dumplings! What a great idea!

  6. i have only seen parts of the old one that shows on TV, and don't know the whole story. did not know it had a moral to it. the old guys are watching other old guys flying Radio control airplanes, that was at my hubby flying club...

  7. Hi there - saw your link at Judy's and popped over to say hello! I've heard so much good about that movie - I really have to go see it too! Thanks for the review!

  8. I don't know the story but have heard that the movie is outstanding! Thanks for reaffirming that! Cute picture!

  9. I do plan on seeing it. I do not know the story at all but I look forward to seeing it.


Your comment is such a blessing and encouragement to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
