My wife and I rented "War Horse" from Redbox recently. Now that was an awesome movie. It contained more violence than we care for but I don't remember a single curse word. Why does everyone curse so much nowadays, anyway? Well, that's a topic for another day. The themes of love, devotion and honor shine throughout this film. But to me the movie was more about courage and what it means to fight for what you believe in. The definition of Courage is bravery, boldness, fearlessness, mettle, fortitude, or intrepidity. Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. My hope is that I can live my life with courage. The most important thing to remember also is that Love can give you courage. May you be filled with love. God bless us each and everyone. Peace!
What is beauty?
God made beauty that we could know Him. God is Love. God is beauty. But I could not say it better than Father Stephen. His blog
"Glory to God for All Things" is here. I rely on his blog to learn about Orthodoxy. He is one of the best teachers on the ancient wisdom of the fathers. I hope you enjoy reading him as much as I do. Peace and love to all!
