And I'm just a girl
Who's in love with a guy
Not in front of me
Now you're so far away
And I need you right here in my arms
Baby just run
Take a bus,
Take a plane
Take a train
Baby just run
Run as fast as you can
Boy you'll find your way back'
Cause no matter wherever you are
There's no place on this earth thats too far

Beauty and the Beast...Spousal Abuse?

So I am in an English class at Grant MacEwan based on Children's Literature and right now we are focusing on Folk and Fairy Tales. We got on the the topic of Disney movies today and I didn't realize just how many people out there think that Disney movies should not be watched by children because it will cause horrible negative reprecussions.
I, however, am not one of those people. For those who don't know me I am a huge Disney nut. I love everything Disney especially the old school movies. In our discussion today they brought up Beauty and the Beast which was critically acclaimed and nominated for an Oscar. Some of the people in my class thought that this movie promoted spousal abuse and encouraged young girls to stay with their abusive partners because he would eventually become this good person. I don't know about you but I don't remember thinking anything other then..."Gee I didn't know that the Prince would turn out to be cute!"
When I tried to raise the point that people thought those things because they were purposely looking for the negative aspects in movies, they shot me down saying that these movies are harmful to children. I responded by saying that if YOU parent your children and not the TV then even if your children pick up on a "negative" then you can show them that it is wrong and help them to realize that it is JUST A STORY.
Anyways my whole class with exception of a small few now thinks that I am a completely naieve with visions of sugar plums and fairy dust clouding my vision of the real worlds and way things really are.

I would like to think that I am not naieve I know that alone these movies could perhaps lead some children to think the wrong thing but I choose to look on the positive side of things that they are a good hour and a half of song and drama.
What do you think?

Cheese Free

Now normally I think that most Christian music I hear is really cheesy and I tend not to listen to it but I saw this artist named Aaron Shust while watching TBS Saturday morning and I really enjoyed him so I thought that I would post the lyrics to one of his songs becuase I quite enjoy his CD.

My Saviour, My God

Aaron Shust

I am not skilled to understand

What God has willed, what God has planned

I only know at his right hand stands one who is my savior

I take him at his word and deed

Christ died to save me this I read

And in my heart I find a need for him to be my savior

That he would leave his place on high and come for sinful man to die

You count it strange, so once did I before I knew my savior

My savior loves, my savior lives my savior's always there for me

My God he was, my God he is My God he's always gonna be

Yes, living, dying; let me bring my strength, my solace from this spring

That he who lives to be my king once died to be my savior

That he would leave his place on high And come for sinful man to die

You count it strange, so once did I before I knew my savior

My savior loves, my savior lives my savior's always there for me

My God he was, My God he is My God he's always gonna be

Happy and Sad

So I haven't posted in like forever and I am sorry but I have been crazy busy with Christmas and all those good things. So I have been puppy sitting since Thursday and things have been going well but Ian has gone home and now I am bummed. It is sad really he probably has just left Spruce Grove and I am upset that he is gone. It doesn't help that I feel so guilty, I don't know why but this week has been full of mood swings and I feel terribly for the way I acted. Does anyone else have that happen? I dunno I know that I should go to bed but I am just so bummed out that I don't want to and to top it all off I have to spend tomorrow all alone it is going to be horrible but hey what can you do?
