Lord of the Rings came out and I saw the first one five times in the theater. We’d like to pretend that isn’t overzealous but 15 hours and around $45 later, I’m not as ashamed of that fact that I should be. There is of course a point to this and it’s probably because I’m watching it again, the extended edition…while at home in Central VA on my vacation.
The best part of my love, is whenever it gets brought up and yesterday, it was in a sermon.
But instead of going on about something we all know about let’s leave on one of my favorite quotes and, shocking, it’s a reflective one. But it comes from Arwen as we wait to see if Frodo will make it after being stabbed: “What grace is given me let it pass to him. Let him be spared. Save him.”
