A GOOD CATHOLIC GIRL-

 

Yes! I cried at its end and I don’t even know why. But I cried. Was it the plot? The characterization or the talent showed by the cast? The cinematography or what? I don’t know. I must be overly emotional or just too good a person. Because my tears count and I loved this film! This film made me cry. I don’t think I am going to escape saying this very line for almost every film I am going to blog about, but this Film is quite something! Tragedy.

It’s the irony that got me thinking first. A GOOD CATHOLIC GIRL… So here I am thinking that this film is about some zealous catholic girl only to realize that most of the characters are Moslem. Amiina is a good Moslem girl who hopes to become a Good catholic girl because she is in love with Brian and he has never forced her to do anything and etcetera. Yet, Amina is challenged by her father who disagrees with her choice… Find out how it ends.

I won’t be the spoiler but hey, the film is great. I am working on my cinematography eye and I don’t think there is much I would like to point out as a critique.

The plot is incredible, as I even cry when all goes wrong for my Amina. I love Brian, I l am literally in love with every bit of the film. I almost screamed at a certain editor who was destructing me half-way through my concentration.

And this is what got me going about researching about who Matt Bish is. What is the production? Who are his Cast? This film is a 2011 production. Yet still, it transcends all time.  Check it out in the link below or my YouTube Channel where you will find these films. In my other posts, I will be giving details about this director and the entire cast.

As much as there is plenty of annoying film productions out there, there are good ones as well and that fact cannot be ignored.

Let’s take a closer look.

  • Characters: Perfect
  • Language: Excellent
  • VideoGraphy: Excellent.
  • Plot”: Incredible.

As though this is not enough, the story is biographical, based on true tragedies.  And the content is everlasting, designed to transcend one generation to the next. Because it addresses the problems that are not only existent in modern society but have also existed in the past and will in the future.

MY COMMENT: WATCH THIS FILM.

Ten little things every Christian traveller must always carry.

Well, this may not always be a requirement only the Christian needs but being a Christian blogger, Yes. My list might be a little biased. And I can’t list whatever you need when you travel, but these little things are easy to forget.

  1. Your Bible

As a believer, your life depends on the word. It’s how you grow. The word is your daily meal. This is why you must always carry your Bible with you. It’s for your personal benefit, a reminder of the choice you made when you chose Jesus. (If you are non-Christian, carry the Holly book for your religious dominion) Make sure your choice is portable and comfortable.

2.A thick cotton scarf and a hut. Some people I know think you must be asthmatic to wear a scarf. Honey you’re wrong. Yes. You might be up-to date with the weather forecast, but there is a time you planned to camp in a place only twelve hours but you found yourself staying for 48hours and you hadn’t even planned for day two.

3.A torch. I really don’t need to give you a lecture about this. Just because you come from New York City where every other day you have power doesn’t mean the case is similar allover the globe. As a person who travels a lot within Uganda , I know that not every other little village out there has power. And sometimes it’s just off. So who guarantees that the tent you are crashing at at this particular safari park, has power bright enough to allow you scheme trough your journal or novel? A torch just makes your life easier.

4.A pair of shades. We all know what this means. It shines slot where I come from. Sometimes it’s windy so you need your shades, that you don’t look like you are at the verge of tears. And fashionably, you’re in for a swing. Actually, who says Christians shouldn’t be fashionable?

5.A Christian booklet. Yes. It’s like waiting in a queue for the next person to get whatever they came for at some random store. Or going for some auditions and you have to wait for twenty eight other girls to go before you. You know your lines. So what next? Read that Rhapsody of realities you came with. You need some Divine wisdom in your head right now. You need to know God is working. So this is a traveller’s way. You can’t walk that plain. Come on!

6.A lighter.

Don’t even dare to think that this is about the pack of cigarettes your grand pap has always walked around with ever since he retired. Maybe slightly yes, if you’re travelling with the entire extended family, but this is about your survival during the expedition or scouts trip in the northern Volta. Yes. Just know you will need that fire for some reason.

7. A sweater

.

8. Simple shoes/ sandals or even sneakers

9. An extra pair of pants. (I advise baggy and comfortable)

10. A pair or two of socks


The reason for all the above is pretty obvious and if you don’t want to believe me, still, just pack them before you set off because sweetheart, believe me you will need each one of them.

Feel free to add another requirement in the comment section below, and enjoy your travels! I am off for mine!

Au revoir!

THIS IS WHY YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.

So I was wondering for long why it so happened that some people had the same experience over and over again. Like let’s say retaking a course over and over or staying with an abusive spouse, sticking to friends who bad-mouth you etcetera and etcetera. The list is endless.

It was then that I landed on TD Jakes’s preaching about the power of changing your mind. This is what I learned.

  • You will never be a failure.

I know it might sound a bit of*.  But I guess you understand. Let it not sound in someway, but truth is, a changed person will never be the same again. You will never do the same things you used to do. You’ll find it hilarious that at some point you were so limited, so helpless.You’ll also notice how you tackle challenges with a new wave energy that you never had before. And guess what? You’ll won’t fail at whatever you commit yourself to. It doesn’t mean that you won’t make silly decisions again, but you will always correct yourself and move to the right path.

  • You’ll never be vulnerable or even desperate again.

We’ve all been there. At some point you’ve wanted someone so bad that they’ve started treating you like you don’t matter. But you stick around. Because you’re desperate for their love. Their affection.  A person with a changed mind does not insist on where he doesn’t belong or feel welcome. He builds the right relationships, acknowledges his mistakes, and moves in a morally upright. You won’t settle for less if you are a person with a changed mind.

There is a lot more and more. But meanwhile you can ponder on these or watch video here.
