It's farewell to Summer, permission for banks and the post office to close, the last day Southern women can legally wear white pants and shoes, and a celebration of the working class–
Labor Day, ironically a day many do anything but labor.
It's also a day made for the great outdoors…except when the day is a total washout.
Like today. In Chattanooga.
My original plan included attending Arts in the Park, but since Chattanooga is experiencing bi-polar weather–from a six-week drought to a tropical depression flood–we're going to see Seven Days in Utopia. Here are my Top Five Reasons I can't wait to see it!
5. Robert Duvall
4. After reading this interview with David L. Cook, the first-time author of the book that inspired the movie, how can you not want to see it? He started writing on the porch of an 1874 farmhouse after he sensed the Lord telling him to write a book. Out of no where.…which is crazy/cool. (Golf's Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia is now on my reading list.)
3. It's rated G. PLEASE-OH-PLEASE let this meet or exceed expectation!
2. When I pulled up the Seven Days in Utopia website, LIGHTNING BUGS were flittin' around! I think I clapped my hands and squealed…j'adore fireflies.
1. I watched the movie's trailor. See for yourself below–and tell me how you can resist it!!
This was already on my list. Looks great!
Hmmm, while I’m not into golf, or movies for that matter, there’s just something about this one that makes me want to see it! Thank you for sharing. I’ll see if it’s playing here.
Saw Courageous last week at a pre-screening — have you seen it? It is awesome!!!
This looks so, so good! My husband is taking tomorrow off to take the kids to their first day of school with me and we had planned to see a movie. This might just be what we see…Thanks for sharing about it 🙂
This is one movie I hope to see too. I rarely go to the movies lately but I do love Robert Duvall. I saw him on James Robison one year as he interviewed Robert and his wife, who is a Christian. I’m tired of all the violence and sex and look forward to a good story.
Blessings and love,
Yes, yes, yes! My husband and I just heard about this movie and we thought it sounded like a must see! Can’t wait!
Does anyone remember the lines that were said when they were releasing the fireflies from the jug? Something like, “they know they’re trapped so they won’t light up.” And then she says some about freedom…. but I can’t remember what she compares it to. Help, anyone?
Thanks for sharing!
