Mom’s Night Out

MNO_OfficialPoster_LowRead Ephesians 3:14-19

Watching “Mom’s Night Out” with Shannon, which I was told is hilarious. It actually is pretty good. Shannon went to see it when it first came out with a crowd of church ladies (mommies, all of them) and they cracked up. Mom humor is all or nothing. The thing I notice about the film is that it emphasizes the fact that we are all normal. We all have problems. Life is sometimes a total disaster. No way around it. Failure is a reality for all of us. You should remember this. Seriously. A big part of life for every single one of us is all the stuff that goes wrong. I mean the stuff that goes way wrong. Yes, God’s in it too. The Kingdom of God is about love and family per the verses we’ve just read. Mention those two words, love and family, and you’ve got huge potential for things to go wrong… for all the right reasons. A few lines from the film that stand out…

1) “I’m a mess, but I’m a beautiful mess. I’m His masterpiece and that’s enough.”

2) “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”

Amen.
