I saw this movie on Friday at the theater.  Now, just making it to the theater was an accomplishment for me as I abhor the prices, audience behavior, etc.  I prefer to watch movies in the privacy of my own home.  But sometimes, I really want to see a movie before it comes out on DVD--thus, I made up my mind to go see this one.

And, I'm really glad I did.  It had amazing effects but an even more interesting story line.  I really enjoyed how the director blended the 'journey' that permeated the movie with the emotional connections between the main characters.  I don't want to give anything away but the ending is a real tearjerker.

Definitely go see this if you think you have any interest at all in the subject.  It won't disappoint.

Not actually the church mentioned in the photos below but a landscape shot taken with the church behind me.  The eyes can see a long way in this part of Texas.

Here is the chapel next to the church in the post below.

Bethlehem Lutheran Church

For the first time in months, the weather was cool in South Central Texas so I decided to go out and take some pictures this afternoon.  I took this one about 30 miles from my house in a "ghost town" called Quihi.  It's not really a ghost town because people do live in the vicinity but the population is much reduced from its heyday in the 19th century.  Anyway, this is the Bethlehem Lutheran Church founded in 1852 and still with a congregation.  I have some more from this area that I will post in a few days.
