Heather stayed awake! or Harry Potter was viewed and the only thing asleep were our children!

As may be recalled, there was a bit of hesitancy over the hows and whens that the last Harry Potter was going to be watched.  I did want to see it in the theater but I was ok waiting.  I hadn’t seen a Harry Potter movie in the theater for a while and so what would missing this one hurt?  But then there was the whole “Heather will fall asleep” conundrum.  So, last Friday, Heather and I caught the 10:20 show with my sister, Kyleigh, and her boyfriend.  It was watched and enjoyed.

My heart on this matter is that I am a reader and I really would like Heather to get the same passion out of reading that I do.  I read more than Children’s Lit, by the way; my taste is as varied as the types of music that I listen to (which is quite a lot).  I always thought, after I figured I would get married, that my wife and I would read the same books and talk about them.  Throughout the Harry potter series we would watch the movies, which are little more than cliff-notes, and I would fill her in on the vital parts that the movie glossed over.  Like Winky.  Poor Winky.

God gave me a mate for my help.  He knew exactly who I needed to partnered with.  Someone full of grace ,and patience, and love, and patience.  I could not, or would not, ask for anyone else.

I’m afraid I’m making her sound illiterate.  She’s not.  Right now she’s reading David Platt’s Radical, which I have already read and maybe we’ll talk about it when she’s done.  We are also doing a devotional together from Matthias Media.  We do do things together, and our current situation is giving us a lot of time together.  It’s been nice.  Full of prayer.  And nice.
