"If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans."
-Jose in the movie Bella

Anna, Mom, some friends and I went to go see Bella on Monday night. It's a good movie, a very good movie. It is a movie about despair about hope, about joy, love, about life. It is about grace. It is a movie that you should definitely consider seeing.

What plans have you made? Has God laughed?

" say, 'Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, ... yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. ... You ought to say, 'If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this or that.'"
-James 4:13-15

What plans have I made? Have I considered that the result of "my" plans is ultimately in the Lord's hands? The movie gave me things to ponder, to think about. For example, the idea that a tragedy doesn't have to end as a tragedy, but can become a source of beauty. It can become bella.
