AVATAR Last Movie Review for 2009

Last night my son and I went to see Avatar
This morning we are still talking about it.
This movie is the most visually stunning movie I have ever seen.
The colours are so vibrant, at one point I actually thought
God if the colours are like this in Heaven take me now.
As for the 3D effect I was actually tempted to reach out and touch the little white fluffies that were landing on my nose and arms. You will see them in the video clip.
James Cameron out did himself and I predict he will clean up at the Oscars.
The story line was predictable but did not dissapoint.
What I did find interesting though was,the subliminal message of the white man ousting the native man from his home for his own self righteousness and greed.
With that being said,perhaps this was my own thought corelation between the two and yet I some how doubt deep down that I am wrong. I believe there was a message Cameron chose to subliminally remind our hearts of.
We all agreed upon leaving that the self  righteousness of man is the self destruction of what could be a peaceful harmony between cultures.
The spirituality of the blue people is truly reflective in and of itself.
The main theme is indicative to what we should all aspire to completely understand in our hearts and minds.
The unity of man despite the differences through   "ONE"   beating   HEART
Watch the video and then play it again and close your eyes.
Some very powerful words.
I've posted the lyrics below

Walking through a dream
I see you
My light in darkness breathing hope of new life
Now I live through you and you through me
I pray in my heart that this dream never ends
I see me through your eyes
Living through life flying high
Your life shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love
You teach me how to see
All that’s beautiful
My senses touch your word I never pictured
Now I give my hope to you
I surrender
I pray in my heart that this world never ends
I see me through your eyes
Living through life flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life
I offer my love, for you
When my heart was never open
(and my spirit never free)
To the world that you have shown me
But my eyes could not division
All the colors of love and of life ever more
(I see me through your eyes)
I see me through your eyes
(Living through life flying high)
Flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
And live through your love
And live through your life

I see you
I see you

Twas The Night of Christmas

Twas The night of Christmas and all through my house
not a creature was stirring

Not even my spouse

Football was on TV I can not relate
so off to the kitchen to wash my new plates

A quiet evening I look to enjoy
Then who should appear but my youngest of boys

A Friend by his side a beer in their hands
upstairs they did go clanking their cans

The quiet resumes
then suddenly a clatter
I roll my eyes and go see what's the matter

The gift bags are ripped by are silly old cat
who decided to lie down for her long winter nap

I  in my jammies
been in them all day

I'm ready for bed
but first I must pray
Thank you Father
and Happy Birthday

I am thankful for today it brings such delight
Merry Christmas to all
and to all a Good Night

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve Dinner..... Yummy
Daughters Baking.........Divine
Watching your Grandchildren's faces as they open Presents...........Exciting
Getting them wound up......Our Job
Gathered around listening to your grandaughter read The Night before Christmas...Tearful
Watching my Daughter and Husband Trying to get them to bed.......Funny
The Families gift to us......Priceless

Bitter Sweet Moment

Tis the season we think of family.
This morning I was thinking about my mom and  dad and how much I miss them.
I miss mom constantly singing  the Hallelujah Chorus
with my father following her lead and in a low deep voice
singing King of Kings and Lord of Lords
This is my favourite piece of music as I have heard it since I was just a little one.
My heart began to sink knowing mom never knew here on earth that she had a 3rd great grandchild and  my father knowing but never being able to meet him
knowing I won't be tasting moms mince meat pies this Christmas
laughing over Christmas dinner as we wore the silly paper crowns and over tea afterwards, putting together the little toys from the Christmas crackers.
but as always
God prevails when a heart is in pain.
and he does it (with me) with Great Humour
after a good cry and talk with God I went to the computer intending to write
such lovely thankful heart wrenching words about my parents
a tribute of sorts
and an email popped up
 My mother was an absolutely witty funny creative woman and my father, well his humour very dry.
He was her wingman.
God really knows how to turn my Sorrow into Joy
yes I am doing the actions  :-)
What an amazing King of Kings and Lord of Lords

I Had A Charlie Brown Moment Today

I had a Charlie Brown moment today
and my inner voice came out
not loudly but enough for someone to hear
The hustle and the bustle can create impatience and the occasional angry outburst.
eg. "What do you mean you don't have anymore of this or that it's Christmas"
Humph stomp out of the store
I was thinking Hello Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and it's not like you didn't know it was coming for the past year
but what came out
Isn't there anyone who knows what Chrsitmas is about.
Now the person that heard came over and said
"And Lo an Angel of the Lord came upon them"
I immediately knew the line and where it came from
we giggled
and all was well with the world once again

A Gilbey Christmas

We are a strange family
and adapt to all moods
Steve doesn't like Christmas anymore
"Too Stressful,It's for the kids and we're not kids anymore"
Bahhh Humbug
Funny considering he loves Christmas music.
Dave is getting older(21) and has embraced the families quirky ways adding a touch of his own humour
He asked for a pony and nothing else
and I
Well I like Christmas
and with bearing all this in mind
I got my tree and humourously indulged my husbands mood
and Dave will discover perhaps a Pink or Blue
My Little Pony come Christmas Morn
to top this all off we have decided to
BBQ T-bone steaks this year
as we relax and enjoy
the simplicity that Christmas brings the Gilbey Family
on this Blessed day

Feel free to laugh cause we are having a hoot
I just love our Family humour
Yes the tree is Black
