These will probably be my last posts about the movie Frozen although I can’t guarantee it. I talked about why Frozen was so compelling and how fairy tails point to a much grander much greater story. *Spoilers* (Please don’t read on if you don’t want to know some of the details from the movie.)

Why Frozen was so captivating.

I watched Frozen with my kids over the Christmas break. It was hands down the best Disney Movie they have produced in decades. Why? Because the story was compelling. One of the most frustrating things that Hollywood does is make movies where they throw a bunch of animated animals on the screen saying a few random jokes and expect us to clamor. Why was Frozen so compelling? It wasn’t just a bunch of animators saying look what we can do. It was a compelling story that was supported by great animation.

A short video that gets to the essence of a “happy” marriage. Love what Bonhoeffer says in his letter to his niece who was getting married “It is not love that sustains the marriage but the marriage that sustains the love.” We need the grace of God to find fulfillment in our marriages. I hope this short video is of some encouragement to someone out there.
