“To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God's grace means.”
― Brennan Manning

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's breakdown in 50/50 gets me every time. I would say it's one of the most impactful scenes in cinematic history, along with Paul Dano's meltdown in Little Miss Sunshine.

My buddy Tony Harrah is getting some much-earned recognition for his amazing talent. Check him out if you dig a bluesy Americana sound:

This is quite delightful:

Holy shit! Why am I just now hearing Raury? 😳

I was already in love with Mary J. Blige, but her performance in Mudbound took that love to a whole new level.

Just finished watching Roma. Such a beautiful, immersive, and heartbreaking film.

I'll try to ask this without sounding like a fool. I'm realizing my entertainment choices (books, movies, music, TV, etc.) have been very... white. What are your recommendations for more diverse choices?

Update on my mother-in-law:

She is awaiting surgery. After surgery, she will need to stay down here in a physical rehabilitation center for 7-10 days to receive physical therapy before she can go home.

This is inexcusable. Jesus said "So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me."
Matthew 18:4‭-‬5 NLT

My mother-in-law fell last night and broke her hip. She's on vacation with us, and around midnight she fell out of her bed onto her hip. She wanted us to help her up, but the pain was so bad we decided not to move her. She agreed to let us call 911, and now she's in the hospital waiting to see the orthopedic surgeon. She will need surgery. My heart broke for her when she looked at us and said, "Well, this has been a hell of a vacation." 😞

Just saw "Moonlight" for the first time; what a beautiful film.

Come Sunday on Netflix is probably something this community would really appreciate.

Spending a week at Cherry Grove Beach with the family, and this morning was a true blessing. 3 mile run/jog/walk with my nephew and a beautiful sunrise.

That moment when you have to calm down because someone you very deeply admire and hold in high regard requests to follow you on Instagram (spoiler alert: it's Lisa Sharon Harper). 😳❤

I don't use the terms "mandatory," "required," or "essential" lightly, but right now I will say with confidence that the film I Am Not Your Negro is mandatory, required, and essential viewing for all Americans.
