I disagree

With all of the people who claim that "Fire Proof" was good only when compared to other Christian movies. Even Kirk Cameron, who in my opinion can not act at all did a decent job with this movie. There were things wrong with, but hey when compared to other movies in Hollywood I would say it was right in line with those. The special effects felt real, although when the LT lost his hard hat I cracked a smile. I am surprised that this movie is making it next to others simply because more so than "Facing The Giants" Christ is at the center and Christianity as the answer is very blatant. Don't get me wrong I am all for it, my wife and I know a lot of couples that are currently having severe marital issues that if allowed to continue down the current path will end in a disastrous divorce. In our society today marriage doesn't mean forever it just means for now, people jump into marriage like they jump into a bumper car at the amusement park. They drive around expecting nothing to actually hit them and when it does they are ready to change rides. Some people jump into marriage thinking it is for like, never expecting to actually have to work on it after the wedding ceremony. Of course I am sure there are others that things just sneak on them, regardless this movie has came out at a very good time.

We felt that it was time to get away and boy did we pick the right spot lol. Phil and Kate met us in Pigeon Forge for a couple days of relaxation. We rented a cabin that came complete with Jacuzzi and pool table, really though we didn't spend a whole lot of time there as everyday we went somewhere to explore. We absolutely loved coming home at night to the "hot tub" as the girls called it or a rousting game of pool that I have yet to actually figure out. My wife and Phil on the other hand are pool sharks! For those of you who have never been to that area you need to go. We saw a show the last night we there called "Hoot and Holler". It is a dinner show that makes you laugh from the minute you walk into the room. Overall a very good time for us. I caught up with another friend of ours who didn't know anything that had happened to us last year but he said he and his wife had kept us in their prayers and felt we were on our way to something great now, finding out what we had been through only confirmed that it is indeed time.
