My son & I went to see the new Fantastic Beasts movie and I was not impressed. I am a Harry Potter fanatic and by far, the first Fantastic Beasts is my new favorite movie and I watch it weekly; but the new one? Eh.
It has the same beauty that all the HP movies possess. The beasts are awesome. The details and scenery are wonderful; but the story line? Scattered at best.
As far as I am concerned, this movie is what I call a “plot line advancer”. It gave a wide scattering of new details to advance the story; but no real substance or story line to speak of. UGH!
I had a feeling that I’d be disappointed and didn’t go opening day, but finally went on Sunday; because my son wanted us to get it over with. Because of my love for the franchise, my son was very curious that I’d waited so long to go see it. He also hoped that I didn’t like in; because he didn’t at all. LOL!
Anyway, I can only hope the next 3 installments are better.
Tuesday was my son’s Concert Band concert and it was good. I was in a lot of pain and wished I’d enjoyed it more; but I know the pain steals so much from me and I was blessed to have been able to enjoy it a bit. I’m so impressed with his performance and that’s all that truly matters.
Thanksgiving was a pleasant affair. Just the two of us, a 10lb turkey and all the fixings. Oh, and pie! 😀
I’ve been busy working on a 30 day devotional on Prayer over the last two months. It’s nearly complete. I’m hoping it will be received well. If not, <shrug> so be it.
Tomorrow is my last class with Brian Guerin for “School of Hidden Riches” and thus far, we’ve covered a lot of the book of Revelations. Very educational and knowledgeable teaching from Brian and worth the money I spent to do the class. He has such a soothing voice, too. I’ve read all his books and even downloaded a few audibles he has.
My church pastor has been out since mid September due to an accident and hospitalization/rehabilitation. He’s healing nicely from his injuries; but can’t seem to catch a break. He is now having breathing issues. He is in need of prayer, so if you pray, keep him in mind. Thanks!
I hope all is well in your lives. May the blessings of the Lord be upon you from now through the holiday season!
